Enormous Implications: Students Identifying As LGBT Skyrocket At Brown University To Nearly 40%

Alex Newman

The number of Brown University students identifying as homosexual, bisexual, or transgender has more than doubled since 2010, according to a new poll commissioned by a student-run paper. A decade ago, just 14 percent of students there claimed in polls to be LGBT. Today, almost 40 percent identify with one of the letters, according to the Brown Daily Herald’s Spring 2023 poll released last month.  

Breaking down the numbers, students who identify as homosexual have increased by over 25 percent, with “bisexual” surging over 230 percent. But the number of students identifying with “other sexual orientations” such as “Queer,” “Pansexual” and “Asexual” skyrocketed almost 800 percent since the surveys began over a decade ago. Over 5 percent said they were “nonbinary” or “genderqueer.”

Students quoted by the paper celebrated the news, suggesting it was due to more social acceptance. “Queer people haven’t been able to be open in their identifications for that long,” argued Josephine Kovecses, who is set to graduate with the class of 2025. “So it’s exciting that the numbers are growing and that queer people are able to be open in particular at Brown.”

The epidemic at ultra-liberal Brown is even more extreme than across the United States. In fact, Brown students are five times more likely than other Americans to identify with one of the letters. But the same general trends are being seen nationwide amid a relentless LGBT propaganda campaign by Big Media, Big Business, and Big Government-funded “education” institutions at all levels.

Polling continues to show the number of self-styled LGBTQ+ people surging with each generation, with no end in sight to the increase. A Gallup poll released last year found that more than 7 percent of adults now identify as LGBTQ+. Compare that with those between the ages of 18 and 25, about 20 percent of whom told Gallup they identify as LGBTQ+.

The same trends are even happening in America’s most conservative states. In Utah, for example, The Newman Report highlighted data from the state’s medical prescriptions database showing a 10,000 percent increase in the number of minor girls undergoing so-called “gender transitions” in the GOP-dominated state. 

The data adds more evidence debunking claims of LGBTQ+ promoters that homosexuality and gender confusion is genetic. If it were, rates would remain relatively steady. As such, the unprecedented surge has been explained as “social contagion” by experts, who say that choosing a letter from the LGBTQ+ spectrum is considered “trendy” or “cool” by brainwashed youngsters. Critical Theory also plays a role.    

However, public approval for homosexuality and transgenderism has also been retreating. According to a recent Gallup poll, the number of Republicans who say homosexual relations are morally acceptable has plunged by 15 percent to 41 percent in just one year. Among Americans generally, numbers fell by 7 percent to well below two thirds acceptance.

Ivy League universities such as Brown are supposedly producing the future business and political leaders of tomorrow.

That means the skyrocketing number of self-proclaimed LGBTQ+ adherents has enormous implications for the future that are hard to overstate, even just from a demographic perspective as birthrates continue to plummet far beyond replacement levels. This is a crisis that must be addressed.

Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?

Hal Lindsey, in his article, “The Unraveling of the American Mind,” wrote:

In 1987, Allan Bloom, then a professor at the University of Chicago, published The Closing of the American Mind…. Bloom showed how the relativism taught at universities leads to closed minds. He lamented “parents’ loss of control over the children’s moral education at a time when no one else is seriously concerned with it. The book was influential, but I wish its influence had been even greater. The Closing of the American Mind was like a sandcastle trying to hold back a rising tide.

[Today,] almost half of LGBTQ+ students have considered suicide and 37 percent of them have formed a suicide plan. These numbers are staggering. What’s going on? Relativism, though a huge problem, is really the symptom of a bigger problem. You’ll find the real problem laid out in Romans 1:18-32. Those verses speak of human beings “who suppress the truth in unrighteousness” (vs 18). It says, “Professing to be wise, they became fools” (vs 22). “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie” (vs 25).

God’s judgment is to allow his repudiators to have what they desire. “God gave them over to degrading passions” (vs 26). In Greek, the words translated “gave over to” carry the connotation of “surrender.” In a sense, God simply lets go. Romans 1:28 is one of the saddest verses in the Bible. “Just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind.” God surrenders them to the consequences of their own choices and desires.

Romans 1:29-31 gives us a taste of how depravity of mind manifests itself into the world. It leads people to “unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice.” It goes on to say, “They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful.”

We now live in that world. And we see the pain, sadness, loneliness, misery, and mental illnesses it causes. God remains all-powerful, but He allows us to choose whether we will push Him away or invite Him in. Americans as a whole have actively pushed God away for generations. We now see the sad, ugly results.

The Rejection Of Biblical Truth In The Church Should Be Met With A Trumpet, Not A Whisper

If you read articles that expose false doctrine or rebuke apostasy, it is not done in order to dwell on the negative, spark controversy, or draw attention to our ministries. It is an expression of our love for Jesus and the truth of His Word.

If The Lord Is A Zionist, Believers In God’s Word Ought To Be Also

As long as the sun, moon, and stars are shining in the sky, Israel will not cease from being a nation before Him forever. Again, I ask, what side of history do you want to be on? I trust you want to be on the side of history that lines up with God’s passions and God’s love. He has an everlasting love for Israel and the Jewish people.
