Must not Question "Queer Studies"

We read:

"A university curator is facing criticism from faculty and students at the University of Missouri-St. Louis over perceived anti-gay comments made at a recent board meeting.

University of Missouri system curator David Wasinger, a St. Louis attorney appointed to the board last year by Gov. Matt Blunt, questioned the relevance of "queer theory" studies at a curator committee meeting last week in Kansas City....

With money tight on the system's four campuses, Wasinger wondered if "our limited resources would be better spent on other programs such as math and sciences" or "chemistry labs that are in dire need of repair."
