I came into the office this morning and was shown the last two articles written by your News Editor John Ferrannini . I was shocked that of all of the things that are said at the Clubs And Event Board, he has chosen to focus on taking many of the comments made at these meetings completely out of context and made them headlines. Seeing as the press and the government traditionally have an adversarial relationship, his simple manipulations come as no surprise. I have no disrespect or prejudice towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual community, and as a member of the LGBTQIA community I oftentimes forget that my personal life experience is not that of the heteronormative society in which we live. I should consider myself privileged because having a positive self-image of an alternative sexual identity is often a struggle for people to acquire, but it comes as a blessing and a curse. I often forget to regulate my internal monologue with the external one, and sometimes comment come out that may be better left unsaid. If anyone has been offended by quotations that the ASB correspondent for the Current has chosen to publish entirely out of context, I offer my deepest apologies.
On a brighter note, Tomorrow’s Harvest Hoedown Club Day benefiting the Wounded Warriors has been moved INSIDE of the Student Center from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M due to the rain. We have never done this before, and so we are busy making arrangements for the last minute change of venue. WE WILL SEE YOU THERE!!!
