Homocon Robert Oscar Lopez: Colleges That Offer Queer Or Women’s Studies Should Lose Their Funding

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

Mission America’s Linda Harvey interviewed fellow anti-LGBTQ activist Robert Oscar Lopez on her radio program last weekend, where Lopez asserted that colleges and universities that have a women’s studies or queer studies department should be stripped of their nonprofit status and denied access to federal funding.

Lopez said that Congress should pass laws banning tenure and “set up a RICO investigation office just for higher education” to monitor schools in order to prevent faculty and staff from “making donations to a political party” that then allocates federal grants and funding to those schools. “It’s a conflict of interest,” he said.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: Robert Oscar Lopez launches Texas chapter of the vile anti-LGBT hate group Mass Resistance. In April 2015 Lopez filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in which he declared that gay marriage must be stopped because gay writers are just horrible to him. In March 2015 Lopez declared that gay activists are incentivizing home-wreckers. Also that month Lopez declared that gay parents like Elton John are disgusting terrorists. In December 2014 Lopez filed an amicus brief with the Eleventh Circuit Court in which he opposed Florida marriage because gays have been telling lies about him. In September 2014 Lopez compared the Human Rights Campaign to the Khmer Rouge. Also in September 2014 Lopez petitioned the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to stop gay marriage in Texas because he used to be a prostitute. In April 2014 Lopez filed an anti-gay amicus brief in support of Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage. In March 2014 Lopez declared that gay men are turning surrogate mothers into breeding slaves. In 2013, in addition to appearing on stage at an anti-gay Manif Pour Tous rally in France that was supported by neo-Nazis, Lopez testified against LGBT equality before several state legislatures and he co-signed an anti-gay homocon brief to the Supreme Court in support of DOMA. You really must read the Media Matters take on Lopez’ trilogy of gay erotica.

    Fine Robert. Let’s instead have studies on the efficacy, and health of homocons. I’m sure the psych dept. of many schools would line up for those funds.

    • j.martindale

      They devote complete classes to it–abnormal psych.

      why is that look a bit more convincing?

    When Christian Sharia law comes to America, will I still be able to enjoy my Pornhub?

    • Lizard

      Probably. The Middle Eastern countries with the strictest theocracies tend to have the highest porn consumption rates.

      • Silver Badger

        Christians aren’t as nice as Muslims in many areas. I wouldn’t bet on Porn Hub access if the Christers get control.

        • Lizard

          Ah, but the Internet is not so easily controlled.

          Plus, plenty of the Christian oppressionists like their porn just as much as anyone else.

          • Silver Badger

            For themselves, yes. For us? Not so much.

          • Lizard

            I’d like to see them try. That would require some serious finagling with internet providers and content creators.

  • Fucking hell – donations from poor teachers are a conflict but it’s peachy keen when it’s from the Koch brothers who then lobby for all sorts of things that help their business?

    OT: I’ve paid Disqus to stop the ads in the comments. Bah.

    • PickyPecker

      Joe…..why not set something up to allow those of us who can….help with financial stuff like that!?!?!?!?

      • Jonathan Smith

        honestly, this is the only website that i would.

        • BJORN RAGNVALDR

          Same here…I can’t quit you people!

      • Silver Badger

        I am a cheap bastard but would consider paying for JMG to be well worth the money.

        • Steve Smith

          Likewise.

        • prixator

          I’m a poor bastard, but I would feel bad if I didn’t contribute something.

          • Silver Badger

            I’m poor too, but I’m low maintenance for the most part.

      • JoeMyGod

        We’re looking into setting up an ad-free version of JMG like some sites have had to do because so many are using ad blockers. We’ve got contract issues with the ad agencies to deal with first.

        • PickyPecker

          K. Remember….your JMG family is here to help.

          • Jonathan Smith

            hell, JMG, it’s your fault we are all here anyways. 🙂

          • Phil2u

            I definitely tried to exist on tuna casseroles in my university days.

          Have you ever looked into patreon? I use it for a lot of online content contributors that I appreciate.

            I was about to suggest that. I use it for my sites.

          • Oh, Parker

            I was going to suggest that, too. Great idea.

        • Silver Badger

          Glad to see the “we”. I have long suspected that you are working too hard. Stop and think, Joe, what are we going to do if you work yourself to death? Yes, there are other blogs, but none as good as yours.

          • JoeMyGod

            I just got back from seven days of partying at Bear Week but still got out my usual 150+ posts. Didn’t work myself to death but yeah, there were some bleary-eyed 8AM posts. 🙂

          • PickyPecker

            You’re a trooper, Joe. THANK YOU! JMG is a great site and I always, always learn something new here every day!

          • JoeMyGod

            FWIW – According to my WordPress dashboard, my most recent day of not-posting was Thanksgiving 2008.

          • clay

            Yes, some of us were terribly distressed by this summer’s lack of Joe/Brian Sims photos.

          JMG is an invaluable news source. My favorite thread is always the last thread of the day, where discussions evolve and conversations take their natural course late into the evenings. I’m in awe of JMG’s reporting, and of this international community.

          I currently pay for online subscriptions to WAPO & the Minneapolis Star-Tribune for access to quality news, and an ad-free version of JMG would be no different. Darn right I’d contribute financially if given the chance.

        • TJay229

          I’m more than sure your paid site would do far better than Andrew Sullivan’s did. 💅

          Yes, anything we can do to help, we will.

        • Professor Barnhardt

          I’m seeing ads now for the Tektronix MDO3000 and MDO4000C oscilloscopes. I’m not sure why, although I wouldn’t turn one down.

          • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

            There’s a lot of talk about Trump. That could be it.

        • How about Patreon?

        • zhera

          I have to use Ad Block because otherwise my computer crashes. If you were to set up a Patreon or tip jar or whatever, it would ease my guilt for freeloading here for so long!

          • prixator

            Is it the autoplay video ads? Those caused me to install Adblocker because my computer kept freezing when those were present. The rest were no problem.

        • gothambear

          Happy to help out! I didn’t mind one ad in the comments but over and over and over was indeed irritating…

      • Ross

        I would SO pay to view JMG.

    • gaymex1

      Thanks Joe.

    • Ross

      THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!

      Because of the ads (which began yesterday) I downloaded Ad Block Plus for the first time ever on my computer. I was planning to do same today on my iPhone and iPad but will hold off on that.

      someone ate at Taco Bell

      • safari

        As I child I ate taco bell and thought it was tasty. It’s like chasing the dragon — every time I try it I get disappointed and ill.

        • Lantor

          OMG, I just did that exact same thing Monday. I thought, “I’m exhausted from work, I have no desire to cook. I’ve not had Taco Bell in a long time, let’s make a run to the border (remember that catch phrase?).” I rued Monday.

        • Acronym Jim

          I never liked Taco Bell, but Taco Time has always been a guilty pleasure.

          • TCinBerkeley

            Del Taco for me. Luckily, now that the one on Market St in SF is gone, I don’t have any near by (and I wouldn’t drive to one), so my digestive system is good.

    “Lopez asserted that colleges and universities that have a women’s studies or queer studies department should be stripped of their nonprofit status and denied access to federal funding.” But not his own area of Literature: Latino Studies.

    “prevent faculty and staff from ‘making donations to a political party’ that then allocates federal grants and funding to those schools.” Faculty and staff are private citizens and political parties do not allocate federal grants.
