The fine students at Hood College in Maryland need a lesson in gender.
The students elected a homecoming king recently. She is a lesbian...
FREDERICK, Md. -- Hood College is reviewing its homecoming rules after a lesbian was crowned king, a college official said.
Jennifer Jones, the 21-year-old senior who beat out three men for the honor, said the crowning was a positive step for the private liberal arts college.
"It is cool that Hood allows people to be themselves," Jones told The Frederick News-Post. "If people didn't want me to be king, they wouldn't have nominated me and voted for me."
Jones, of Newark, Del., received 64 of 169 votes cast for king last month.
According to the U.S. News and World Report's annual guide to colleges, there are 1,027 students at Hood.
Which means that fewer than one in six actually gave enough of a hoot about a homecoming king to even vote.
Of those, fewer than 40 percent backed the winner.
Still, a gender lesson is appropriate.
I mean, it's not King Elizabeth, is it?
Meanwhile, in the Great White North, a campus newspaper has riled folks with a blatantly anti-Christian cartoon... published in the same edition in which the newspaper proudly declared its refusal to publish the Mohammed cartoons. Kate has all the details... along with a "sort of" explanation buried deep in the comments from the cartoon's author.
I don't have time or the sufficient sanity after the irrationality which I have been reading all morning to respond to everything on here, but I will say this. You missed every point possible.
I am not a leftist, I am not a heathen, and it was not hateful. and MOST IMPORTANTLY: MARK WATSON HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COMIC. Y!PH WROTE AND DREW IT AND ONLY HAD INPUT FROM A CERTAIN GROUP OF INDIVUALS WHO ALSO CONSIDER THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS.
Also, if you truly believe that fanatics are representational of all Muslims, then please, reconsider your thoughts and stop being a hypocrate.
Later, Y!ph (really!) kind of apologizes...
I'll apologize formally right now to all of you for the mistake. Hopefully we can all now address our concerns to the person truly responsible, and that is myself. Also - hopefully this can remain civil, and those concerns can be concise, and not repetative. Furthermore, hopefully everyone who has made unnecessary remarks to entirely innocent individuals and groups, as well as slanderous comments towards liberals, so-called leftists, and especially the writers of The Sheaf and everyone connected to the institution.
Can you say idiot?
