Harvard has appointed Vanidy “Van” Bailey as the College’s first permanent director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. Bailey, the assistant director for education at the University of California, San Diego, will assume the new position on July 16.
Last April, Dean of the College Evelynn M. Hammonds announced her intention to hire a full-time staffer dedicated to serving the BGLTQ community on campus.
In a statement to students, Hammonds said that the decision was based on recommendations made by the BGLTQ Working Group, which she created in October 2010 to evaluate BGLTQ experiences and needs at the College.
So its your typical blah blah gay appointment hooray hurray blah blah stuff you see from colleges these days to show how inclusive and wonderful they are to a small minority. But then comes the correction at the end.
CORRECTION: July 3
An earlier version of this article used the pronoun "she" to refer to Vanidy "Van" Bailey, the newly appointed director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. In fact, Bailey prefers not to be referred to by any gendered pronoun.
Vanidy “Van” Bailey, let me explain this simple fact of life, your preferences ends when it starts to interfere with the proper use of words because you have some hangup being referred to as a he or a she or he/she whatever.
I guess the proper term will be now "it?" You are dumb, go away.
