Skip to comments.Yale Freshman Class Council scraps "offensive" shirts (PC alert)

The Freshman Class Council has run into controversy with its T-shirts for The Game. The FCC has decided to change the design of its shirts after the original design, which was submitted by students and voted on by the freshman class, sparked outcry from members within the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
The original design, which won out over five other entries, displayed an F. Scott Fitzgerald quote in the front I think of all Harvard men as sissies in bold white letters. The back of the long-sleeved, navy blue T-shirt said WE AGREE in capital letters, with The Game 2009 scrawled in script underneath it.
But the term sissies is considered offensive and demeaning, and as well as a thinly-veiled gay slur, said Julio Perez-Torres, a member of the LGBT Co-op.

Definitely all Yale administrators and Yale Freshmen Class Council members are sissies, that much is true.
So call them pussies instead.
yeah, well i find the term “gay” to be OFFENSIVE, and I would appreciate it if you would start using less offensive and more descriptive terms to describe your personal activities like
SODOMITE instead of gay.
Call them “queers”. That’s an acceptable definition of homosexuals these days, made acceptable by homosexuals themselves. They have Queer Studies, Queer Electives, Professor of Queer Identity Issues, Queer Week. So, just use that one, works with me.
Who's the sissy, then?
These kids need to learn that the queers and weirdos among us wake up in the morning looking to be offended. They know they're perverted, and live life feeling guilty, as they should.
Fine. Poofter then in a Monty Python accent.
Ping for later
Exactly... but either NOW or PETA will be offended by that...
Faggots is more proper, I believe. :)
Harvard has a chance now to show who the real sissies are...these Yalies who are afraid to print the t-shirt. Ha.
F. Scott Fitzgerald called them sissies because had he called them faggots he would have had to have gone to re-education camp.
Boy, you’d think they called them faggots!
And now it’s Yale who has proven that they are the sissies.
Maybe Harvard should wear the shirts.
With this decision the Freshman Class Council has proved that they, indeed, are the sissies.
I thought the militant homosexuals were all for free speech. Isn’t it interesting that now they are suddenly all up in arms when someone dares speak frankly about their bizarre lifestyle. The quote is from a famous historical author so the fruits seem to be their usual hypocritical selves.
