Leftists Flip Out As University Replaces Gender Studies With Founding Documents Center

Students, faculty, and alumni of the University of South Carolina are outraged and spitting mad over the university's decision to drop a gender studies center that teaches, among other things, how to become a lesbian in 10 days, in favor of an American Founding Documents Study Center.

Leftists are not only claiming it's  un-American to change the center, but the founding documents are not really relevant in the real world. However, somehow learning to become a lesbian in under two weeks apparently is.

"The Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (CWGS) at the University of South Carolina Upstate (USCU) will close on July 1 and the funding, previously allocated for CWGS, will be used to teach the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Federalist Papers....."
"The Morning News editorialized that this was “A chilling act of retribution” and “Required reading programs serve several purposes. Most importantly, though, the programs are intended to prepare students for the expectations of college-level discourse and open them up for the diversity they’ll find both on campus and in the real world...." 
"The move puts South Carolina colleges back in compliance with a 90-year-old state law which requires colleges to teach students a year’s worth of courses on the nation’s founding documents." 
Just so you understand, the Morning News’ official editorial is insisting that knowing the Bill of Rights is irrelevant to “college level discourse” and the real world. 

A circulating petition signatures against the move sound even crazier:

"As an alumni, a non-traditional student, and a straight, white, older man, I can’t say enough about how my participation in WGS courses and the Center, changed my life for the better. Because enlightenment comes slowly to some outside academia, students, faculty, and staff need this resource. We cannot let an american Taliban rule our institutions of learning."
