Yale Freshman Class Council scraps "offensive" shirts (PC alert)
Yale Daily News ^ | 11/19/09 | Jordi Gasso

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.

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.

F. Scott Fitzgerald called them sissies because had he called them faggots he would have had to have gone to re-education camp.

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.
