    Thanks for your letter outlining the problems you are having with your "Sociology of Gender" professor. Your contention that the professor and course are "both stupid and should be banned form campus" seemed a little too harsh at first. But then I read the quiz given to you class, which is reproduced below:


    1. What do yo think cuased your heterosexuality?
    2. When and how did you decide that you were a heterosexual?
    3. Is it possible that your heterosexuality is just a phase that you may grow out of?
    4. Is it possible your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of others of the same sex?
    5. If you've never slept with a person of the same sex, is it possible that all you need is a good gay or lesbian lover?
    6. To whom have you disclosed your heterosexual tendencies? How did they react?
    7. Why do heterosexuals feel compelled to seduce others into your lifestyle?
    8. Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality? why can't you just be what you are and keep quiet about it?
    9. Would you want your children to be heterosexual knowing the problems that they'd face?
    10.A disproportionate majority of child molestors are heterosexual. Do you consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers?
    11.With all the societal support marriage receives, the divorce rate is spiraling. Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexuals?
    12. Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex?
    13.Considering the menace of overpopulation, how could the human race survive if everyone were heterosexual like you?
    14.Could you trust a heterosexual therapist to be objective? Don't you fear (s)he might be inclined to influence you in the direction of her/his own leanings?
    15. How can you become a whole person if you limit yourself to compulsive, exclusive heterosexuality, and fail to develop your natural, healthy homosexual potential?
    16. There seem to be very few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed that might enable you to change if you really want to. Have you considered trying aversion therapy?


    Aside from the lunacy of these questions, does this strike any of you as indoctrination instead of learning??

    Bon- re-read the quiz replacing "homosexuality" with "heterosexuality" and "heterosexuality with "homosexuality". Its obviously an ironic critique on the questions and statements usually associated with homosexuality. E.G."There seem to be very few happy HOMOsexuals. Techniques have been developed to help you change if you really want to. Have you ever considered aversion therapy?"

    The questions are posed with roles reversed to highlight the implicit "lunacy" (as you so aptly put it) inherent in the questions when asked of homosexuals. Now, with roles reversed, as a heterosexual, you yourself can see how silly the questions are. Your reaction, that the questions are crazy, is exactly the reaction that the author wanted to ellicit. The question about overpopulation, for example, is completely ironic.

    Its not indoctrination, its putting yourself in someone else's shoes.

    Yes that is obvious that this professor is trying to use absurdity to prove her point, however to suggest that heterosexuals use this as a way to stifle homosexuality is lunacy and if it is happening somewhere in bumfuck wherever it is certainly not the mainstream. Also if you read the whole article, this teacher is hardly unbiased in every other apsect of her perspective on gender, so yes I beleive she is teaching from that bias as opposed to a detached point of view.

    questions constantly posed by the liberal, tollerant, politically correct media
