Alright… It has been a while. Here’s your latest update on the anti-gay bigotry, hate and prejudice oozing from our “highly respected” institution of higher education: NC State University.
All of it started when the NC State Student Senate approved a proposal in support of an LGBT student center. Debate on campus and on a Facebook group entitled “Students Against NCSU LGBT Center,” soon followed. The issue even made an appearance in one of my Don’t Ask (I’m Telling) opinion columns in The Carolinian (UNCG).
The latest comments haven’t been as bad as some of the comments made in the past, but they’re certainly the kind of language or thinking you’d expect from supposed “privileged” students attending one of our state’s “finest” universities.
Some of the statements are just plain ignorance and that’s it… like student Chelsey Willoughby who stated: I am not against gay people! Thats not why I joined this group. I join b/c there is no necessary reason why they are building this center. Everyone has problems, and everyone is judged and picked on at least once in thier life, but nobody bitches about it, with the exceptions of gays! If this occured everytime there was a social difference there would be more FWG (Fat White Girl) center’s than McDonalds!
I guess Ms. Willoughby didn’t happen to notice all the institutionalized and Constitutionalized discrimination against LGBT people. Fat white girls don’t have that problem. If the government placed fat white girls in a place of second-class citizenship, they’d have a right to “bitch” too.
Student Paul Der Ohannesian (pictured right, although he’s changed his current pic from the hot pink, sending me some straight-up gaydar signals one) makes another appearance (see NC State rears… #7) with more of his extreme ignorance and prejudice: i dont see what the big deal about the suicide rate being 3x higher is. its there choice to be gay, and being gay is not right so if its their choice then it is what it is. if they straightened themselves out the dpression and suicide wouldnt be there. they need to think before they act
Ohannesian continues with a longer, more in-depth, more hate-filled post, as well:
how was my post hateful? if you want to have rapists and fags in society then by all means you can pay for this center. and since you want it so bad, lets discuss how you can pay for my part of the tuition increase that way i wont have to pay for something i dont want. it is not my problem that these people were raised wrong. if you look at some of their facebook profiles one faggit was dressed like a fairy. the worst are the “girls” who cut their hair short and look EXACTLEY like a dude. totally disgusting and unacceptable. look what kind of role models these people are. if they werent in society the influence for people to be gay wouldnt be here. it would be nice if our ranking goes to number 1 for not accepting of them because i sure as heck dont want my friends to think i support this kind of garbage.
In response that whopper, student Matt Smith had this to say: yeah im really tired of fags asking to be treated as equals but they all want specials rights and centers and what not, when they build me a center I MIGHT help pay for a fag center…but I dont think either one of them two is gonna happen anytime soon
This stupidity, hate and ignorance just isn’t going to end is it? So much for North Carolina having “young, promising and bright” leaders for the future. If these fools ever get into power as the “leaders” of the “next generation,” we are all in serious trouble.
