For years now, garden variety white folk have joked about what they could have achieved in terms of special treatment, special consideration, grants and employment opportunities had they started checking off boxes that indicated they were part of a minority group early on in their lives.
Soon, this affirmative action/ identity based “merit” will spill over into sexual orientation. Gays who are now being pushed into a “protected class” are probably a few years away from being given special treatment in repayment for alleged discrimination that they have endured.
There could come a time when Bosom Buddies is a sort of reality – straight men living with same sex roommates pretending to be gay in order to get grants, consideration for jobs or into schools that might have otherwise be off limits to them because of lower test scores.
American institutions are bowing to pressure from gay rights groups to encourage this “evolution.” For instance, there is a “human rights” group is urging President Barack Obama to appoint LGBT leaders to the official U.S. delegation to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The purpose of this? To protest a Russian anti-propaganda law that is anti-gay.
Sadly days of dispassionate metrics of achievement are all but gone, replaced with ethnicity, sexual orientation, race or creed. We all will suffer.
