More LGBTQ students sign up at Yale than conservatives
The prestigious American University, Yale found in a survey of new students that more students of the class of 2022 identify as LGBTQ than as conservative.

Gay newcomers even outnumber other sizable groups in the class, such as Protestants and Catholics.
The university newspaper’s survey showed that only nine percent of respondents identified as “somewhat conservative,” with one percent identifying as “very conservative”. LGBTQ respondents, on the other hand, greatly outnumberd conservatives.
According to the survey almost 5 percent of respondents “identify as gay and just over 9 percent as bisexual or transsexual. Three percent opted not to answer, and the remaining 8 percent identified as asexual, ace spectrum or questioning their sexual orientation”.
Gays outnumber Protestants and Catholics, whom the survey identified as 16 percent and 15 percent of the incoming class, respectively.
This is all the more remarkable, since a 2018 Gallup poll estimated that only 4.5 percent of all Americans identified as LGBTQ. Most of those seem to be heading for institutions such as Yale.
Leftist students in the class of 2022 also greatly outnumber conservatives on campus, according to The Daily News‘s findings.
Three-quarters of surveyed students identified as left-wing, with thirty percent identifying as “very liberal”.
The faculty composition at Yale is similar, a study from the previous year found. Three-quarters of the staff identified as liberal while less than 10 percent identified as conservative. Over 90 percent of faculty members in the humanities identified as liberal while two-thirds of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) faculty members said they were conservatives.
A Yale College alumnus told The College Fix that “Yale is increasingly out of touch with America, and America is increasingly out of touch with Yale.
“Central to the American college experience must be not just exposure to people of different racial backgrounds but also different life experiences and viewpoints,” he explained.
Yale students have been launching witch hunts against those who do not share their views. In 2015 when Professors Nicholas and Erika Christakis suggested students should not be so easily offended by things such as Halloween costumes, a huge backlash from students followed.
At one point a mob of students surrounded Nicholas on campus, with one student turning hysterical and shrieking at him, “Who the fuck hired you?” Both have been forced to resign.
Erika Christakis noted in her response in The Washington Post: “By affirming only the narrow right to air my views, rather than helping the community to grapple with its intense response, an unfortunate message was made plain: Certain ideas are too dangerous to be heard at Yale.”
In that same piece, she expressed concern that “students will eventually give up trying to engage with each other, a development that will echo in our wider culture for decades.”
After her comments, a conference at Yale focusing on free speech, was besieged by protestors, one of whom spit on an attendee.
Already in 2016, a Yale Daily News survey found that 95 percent of conservative students on campus thought that their conservative views were unwelcome.
Overall, 75 percent of respondents felt that Yale “does not provide a welcoming environment for conservative students to share their opinions on political issues”.
