David M., Dan, Honest [sic] Abe, Snickers, fbcatfcker, et. al., would like to know if the colleges are including check offs for "closet case" or "sexually disordered."

To further aid in their safety, schools are asking that they wear a triangle that will list if they are gay, Les, bi or Trans.

The program will be headed by Mr Gobbles. Enforcement by TSA.

If I were in college today, I would ACTIVELY wear a pink triangle to OWN the identity.

On my jacket lapel I often wear a pin, a collector Disney pin from "Snow White". I got it 15 years ago and wear it all the time, better yet, her title is engraved on the lower part of the pin..."Evil Queen", that clear enough for the snoops?

Oh, that old turkey.

It's voluntary. Lots of people like to identify themselves.

Especially those wishing to be targets and discriminated against. Ask the people who wore such in WWII Germany.

I'm not sure that was voluntary....

It's "Goebbels," not the turkey noise.

I had it that way but with one b, spell check did the rest.

I love being blamed for bad spelling, but I will defend my reputation as the worst speller on the internet, which I have maintained for nearly 30 years.

I have the feeling the internets is about to go shrt txt on uz.

This is a bad idea that will lead to a serious event. The Nazis (Godwin's law applies to inappropriate hyperbolic comparisons, not historical events) grabbed records kept at the local synagogues in Denmark. With those records, they knew who to arrest for being a Jew. These records were never handed over willingly. I think a hate group will one day break into these records and use them to commit a series of attacks. Colleges must rethink this policy and students should stand together and refuse to answer, no matter their orientation.

Except these highly educated elites are already out and recorded as so in any number of contexts. It is trivial for any isp, direct mail marketer or internet portal to know who is glbt, whether the person is out or not.

Your intimations of some violent, anti glbt episode are already being fulfilled every day in this country.

Do you actually have an agenda against glbt visibility?

I know you can't or won't see this, but TGLB identity gets in people's faces. All the TSes I know want to blend in. We want to be accepted (pass) for who we really are, not some loud attention grabbing, pseudo female or drag queen. Include me out!

Hey crazy Republican, the identification is voluntary.

Hey stupid, it's been noted several times the identification is voluntary. It's self identification. That means the college student do not have to identify themselves in any manner but that which they wish to.

Hey nutcase, it's far from clear that trans people do not wish to be part of the lgbt community. If you don't, then go hang out with your R. fatwa friends who will kill you the first chance they get, you stoopit mental case.

Stupidity is optional.

I knew you wouldn't get it! So stay in the Gayborhood, all ghettoised with your peers, quaking with fear to step two blocks away. I gowhere I want and do what I want and I do it all as Terri. And I don't pass as anything but a first class case of "transgendered". Excuse me, but I worked underground as a miner and I'm also a pilot. Crippling fear is not a part of my personality!
