Interesting article

dazed and confused's picture

Hmm...there was this article in the school paper, it took me a few readings, and some intervention by a fellow Oasis person (thanks Tiki!!), but I finally figured out that it was a humorous, exaggerative commentary about the status of gays at my university...

here are some of the more interesting quotes from it:

  • "It may seem like the University offers minimal support for gays and lesbians, but if you give 'em an inch, they'll probably decorate it."

  • "We must remember not to discriminate against gays and lesbians themselves, as long as we let them know they are disordered for every sexual thought they have."
  • "We need to instill an attitue of healty heterosexuality among students, preferably through more tackle sports and single sex dorms."
  • And the most biting comment of all... "If I could turn back time, I would go back to freshman year when I overheard some of my classmates telling gay students that they were not only sinful, but also inhuman. You just don't see enough of that these days. I mean, there's no better way to follow Jesus than to spit in the face of the marginalized."

What's sad is that some people really do think like this...
