A View of the C

Funny – Inappropriate – Edumacational

Sarah Jeglum, You Suck!

In an opinion piece for the University of Washington student-run newpaper, The Daily, a picture of a man with a sheep was allowed to run in a conservative article discussing gay marriage. The obvious implication is that a civil union or gay marriage parallels that of a man and a farm animal. Of course, it’s presented under the guise of rhetoric.

When some students took a stand against such imagery and held a small protest, the Editor in Chief responded and that response is what I find most interesting. It seems she stands behind the “free speech” decision to run it to illustrate the “slippery slope” point. In all fairness, she does say that she would “approve a different picture next time” but that seems to be a bit disingenuous. 

Maybe we could all directly tell her how we feel?
