In George Chauncey’s U.S. Lesbian and Gay History this morning he told the class that not all of the students are American Studies, History or Women’s Gender & Sexuality Studies majors. Even though those are what the class is listed under there are non-majors too, and, of course, the freshmen who are “undeclared.”

He then told students not to worry if they aren’t gay, adding that he’s found 50 percent of the students who have taken the course have not been gay.

“And that’s not counting those freshmen who are as of yet undeclared,” he quipped to laughter and applause.
