It's none of the college's business. What a load of garbage. Those people are paying for an education not to be harassed over who they are.

They need a check box called "NOYFB!"

Bureaucrats LOVE pigeonholes, AND trying to force living things to fit into them.

I don't get it? You queers get mad if someone asks your orientation but then you "come out" and tell the entire world you're gay, you run around waving rainbow flags in everyone's face and have pride parades. Which one is it?

But I thought you wanted everyone to know you're a queer? Aren't you proud of it?

Aren't people going to figure it out when they see the rainbow flag plastered on your dorm room door?

It's OUR choice. OURS.

Does your Dad go down on your mother before he puts it to her? Or does she do the openers? Enquiring minds want to know.

Feel like someone's privacy is violated?

One wonders why?

Better yet keep it in the closet where it belongs. NOBODY needs to know. I certainly don't want to know about it!

I don't think any of us want to keep you company. You can have it all to yourself.

Easy one, don't check any of those boxes. It wasn't David Parker's choice to have gay story books forced on his 5 year old son in a Lexington public elementary school, why should you get a choice?

C'mon, that question wasn't on the form. I wouldn't hesitate to check off straight. I have straight pride.

Seems like he's ashamed to check 'homosexual'. I mean if I was a queer I would be ashamed too but I thought they were proud? Just saying.
