Princeton Course Will Teach Students 'How To Read Queerly'

Authored by Matthew Penza via Campus Reform,

Princeton University is offering a new course this fall that will teach students about the "theory, narrative, and aesthetics" of "queer literatures."

According to the official course description posted on the school's website, students will "both read from various trajectories of queer literature and engage what it means to read queerly" as part of the “Queer Literatures: Theory, Narrative, and Aesthetics” course.

"We will consider the historical etymology of the term queer and think through its affiliate terms and acronyms: lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans," the description continues.

"We will investigate how discourses of power and institutions of normativity have come up against queer bodies, narratives, and politic—and how such encounters are historically situated."

The university goes on to explain that the throughout the course, students will be urged to "pay close attention to the ways in which desire, gender, and sexuality are queerly told."

The upcoming class is cross-listed in the Department of English, the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, and the Program in American Studies, and will feature readings by several authors and poets, including Eli Claire, Michel Foucault, James Baldwin, and others.

Claire's Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness, and Liberation, an anthology on "disability politics," is described as an "intersectional framework for understanding how we actually live with the daily hydraulics of oppression, power, and resistance," as well as an "exploration of environmental destruction and capitalism, sexuality and institutional violence, [and] gender and the body politic" that calls for "social justice movements that are truly accessible to everyone."

Similarly, IRL by Tommy Pico is a novel that follows a protagonist who is "unsure of which obsessions, attractions, and impulses are essentially his, and which are the result of Christian conversion, hetero-patriarchal/colonialist white supremacy, homophobia, Bacardi, gummy candy, and not getting laid."

According to the description of the book, IRL asks "what happens to a modern, queer indigenous person a few generations after his ancestors were alienated from their language, their religion, and their history?"

Mean, the memoir of "queer spoken-word performer, visual artist, writer," and schoolteacher Myriam Gurba, will give students an opportunity to learn about the author's experience growing up "as a queer, mixed-race Chicana."

Through the lens of "radical formal fluidity," Gurba "takes on sexual violence, small towns, and race" in a "confident, intoxicating, brassy book that takes the cost of sexual assault, racism, misogyny, and homophobia deadly seriously."

"Being mean to boys is fun and a second-wave feminist duty," Gurba declares in an excerpt included in the book's description.

"Being rude to men who deserve it is a holy mission."

The reading list also includes Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin, a novel about a "young American expatriate" in Paris who is coming to terms with his homosexuality, and Foucault's sociological work The History of Sexuality, Vol. 1: An Introduction, with chapters focusing on "The Repressive Hypothesis," "The Perverse Implantation," "The Deployment of Sexuality," and more.

Professor Christina León, who is slated to teach the course, did not respond to Campus Reform's request for comment.

Most gay people are obligate masochists stemming from emasculation trauma. 90% of US gays take it up the butt, or are what is known as a "bottom." This is because in a world where alpha men aren't allowed to exist, becoming a gay bottom is a rational outcome, at the crux of it.

 

Otherwise, the faggots that reject CIA-manufactured hedonism-indulging LGBT culture don't exactly make themselves known since associating with homosexuality is now associating oneself with the queer anti-racist anti-male cult, despite gays being the type who actually just love classical beauty and masculinity. The proof of that is in the fact that only white muscular gay people are popular among faggots when it comes to choosing a mate. 

 

edit: oh and here we are with more shilling of garbage-tier Foucault. His being an authority on anything is reason enough for me to reject modernity in full LOL

Problem stems from teaching kids about this stuff from a very young age, when they think they can be a racecar, an astronaut, or a queer - like a profession. I think if you didn't inform and encourage kids about gaydom from elementary skool, there would be a lot less of it around, closer to the statistical average. If you were to question gay kids from 20 years ago and gay kids now, you would probably find that half the modern counterparts are fake, i.e. they chose to be gay rather than inherently born so.

I just happen to live in western Massachusetts, almost at ground zero for the great GLBT revolution, and honestly, it changes nothing. Some of them are rich, some are Republicans, some are seriously religious, they really blend right in. Nothing changes at all. Except that they now, somewhat, support the sex workers. These sex workers actually staged a parade in a town not too far from me. I've seen how the sex work thing works out, and it can devolve into scenes involving fantastically large containers of Vaseline. This is not good. But I would not want the sex workers arrested, only the sex clients, since I support working people in general. I have never stooped to paying for sex, despite an amazing amount of appeal.

Mike Obama is a Princeton Alum.

The Apex of this iteration of Culture is the celebration of masturbatory pleasure.

How one uses their genitals to derive pleasure defines the person.

Primarily aimed at White people to devalue reproductive sex.

It is not okay to label a homosexual with a pejorative such as "faggot".

However, it is okay to label heterosexual couples with children as "breeders".

I'm of the belief that gays arise from especially sensitive children (which may be epigenetic considering fraternal birth order, and the slight correlation of twins to both be gay) who see the adult world with no channels for them to express male aggression, bonding, dominance, etc. and going from kids who play and explore to adults who are stifled and controlled, and choose to reject such a future, or rather, prepare for it by suppressing the Jungian psychic structure that develops male aggression/dominance... but at puberty, when the libido flows through this framework, a gay kid ends up inverting to fall in love with the alpha male role he suppressed, and stays more id-oriented than ego-oriented. This weak ego development is a characteristic of gays which prevents their full socialization in the straight world, a function of being "in the closet." It also manifests in their psychedelic state of mind. The state still needs to socialize such inverts, so LGBT culture is a constant background noise to trap them into a state-role so that they don't self-actualize otherwise as alpha men who get what they want. Instead, they have to become cheerleaders for the nanny state. This also takes advantage of gay isolation and longing, the unrestrained libido of gays which destines them for hedonism, and general masochism which stems from the relationship of pain with the erotic because of the high sensation both provide. Also explains why higher civilizations with more top-down control like Rome, Greece, the military, boarding schools, and our shitshow see so many gays. 

 

Gays are also better able to manipulate the generative principle because of their arrested psychic development, and thus need to be kept distracted so they don't get any bright ideas and start suggesting alternatives to the current paradigm. We're not scared of women, you see... that alone puts gays on a level above many straight men who stay complacent because the governors know that they won't do anything that will make them seem unappealing to women, I would imagine. Incels might be changing that LOL

the women violent against men are actually looking for the alpha to balance their psyche.

That's exactly right.

My prescription for these feminist types has always been a good throat fucking or a straight ass-to-mouth finish.  That'll cure them of their mental disease.  Might take a few times though before they come to like it.

20 years ago there were no 25 year old female high school teachers "jumping the bones" of the 16 YOs.

40 years ago sex ed - for the guys - consisted almost exclusively of ways to keep it in your pants and what a really bad idea it was to knock up your girlfriend.

70 years ago, if a young single woman became pregnant it was the end of her.  (It didn't matter for the guy however...and that really did stink).

The 2nd one is true, minus the video on VD.  They probably spent 10 minutes on pregnancy, and the rest was the VD video.  My God, that was horrible.  "Why's cauliflower growing out of that guy's dick?"

3rd one is still kind of true today.  Sure, getting pregnant doesn't make you the social pariah it once did, but the difficulties of caring for a child, while attending school or work typically lead to a dead end job, no marriage prospects, and Uncle Sam ends up paying them to fork out more babies because that's their only career path.  Finding someone willing to deal with someone else's kids just to be in a relationship, is about as rare as a black teenager being adopted.

He's jewish, and a narcissist. He wouldn't feel powerful with a beautiful Norwegian musclegod, obviously... so he sticks to the lower races to still feel like top-dog, but also get that aesthetic fit look to his mate.

 

Also, some gays like being fucked by niggers because of masochism. Haven't you heard of bugchasing? Many gays willingly choose to be infected with HIV, and others are into spreading it. Gay dating apps will even have an option if "you're into Poz" HAHAHAH.

Blacks come from satanic worship, even their christian churches are more like social clubs. They like this.  I have always thought that homosexuality is demonic possession. Recently read over at Natural News that it is according to psychologists, we are talking real demonic possession. San Francisco back in the day had gay serial killers who were carving pentagrams on the backs of their gay victims.
