Here's hoping...

...they'll finally be able to break that... ribbed, lubricated "latex ceiling."

-- TORONTO -- The University of Toronto will launch Canada's first graduate program in sexual diversity studies this fall, allowing students to pursue master's and PhD programs focused on the sexual aspect of everything from pulp fiction to public health.

The graduate degrees will be collaborative programs with other faculties, meaning that students apply through departments such as history or law, but their thesis topics are approved through the Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies.

The research interests of this year's grad students range from queer theatre in Canada to the homoerotics of militarism and peace activism.
Ah, yes... worthy subjects all.

So, what exactly does one do with a doctorate in... "Let's get it on?"
Paul Halferty, 34, is in the fifth year of his PhD at U of T's drama centre, but will enter the collaborative program this year to continue his research in queer theatre.

Mr. Halferty believes his focus on sexuality will help him find a teaching job at a university.
But, of course.

That is telling me they want to open legalized whorehouses on campus.

Could they possibly dumb the Universities down any further?

Good grief, more pandering to the gay community. I doubt one red cent will be spent on studing swingers or sluts or whores. Am I allowed to use those words?

I remember a time so long ago that we'd call these fruitloops perverts and we most certainly would not be funding a doctorite program with our tax dollars. Funding perversion, it's the Canadian way.

I hope some feminazi does her thesis on the lore and mystic of the "Town Bike".

I have a topic they can study... why is the mayor of Toronto such a dick? and how did he fit so many sycophantic councilors up his arse?
