Washington & Lee: Openly gay student assaulted and vandalized at W&L


anyone have any details on this?  There must be some W&L students on this site....

Very subtle Fordham trolling.

Prestige bonus for Fordham/UIUC for being the non-gay bashing #25 schools.

I see no problem with the administration's statements.  What is the uproar?

Resolutions of conflicts between two students should not be "emotional knee-jerks."  Do they teach "due process" in Lexington?

If this was a conflict between two WASPS under the same fact pattern, would the resolution be expedited?  I think not.


From what I've gleaned, and from talking to one of the current students, there's a debate over whether the gay student was simply attacked because of an altercation, or because he was actually gay.

it's in Lexington/Southwest VA...as un-PC as this may be, a school in that part of the country can't be that diverse/open-minded no matter how hard the administration tries to diversify the student body.

agreed.

Or that there was no discrimination involved, just a drunken fight...

Here's food for thought:

If the fight erupted for an unrelated reason, and while he was beating on the guy he shouted "fag" or something of the sort, what do you classify it as?
