Queerty is better as a member
Is it okay to point out that her definition of diversity is solely colour orientated and that she is a bigoted, hateful r@cist unfit for her duties under any circumstances?
Or would pointing out reality be considered wrong for some reason.
So if she had signed a petition that said that Asians shouldn’t be allowed to vote would she have been reinstated?
How is this woman going to treat a gay student having trouble when she is obviously quite bigoted against them.
@Cam: Don’t be silly, gays aren’t people.
in addition to being a bigot, who should not have been reinstated, i didn’t know she was also a singer (as per the headline)
Well, suffice it to say… I’m disappointed. I gotta believe that this is a legal
mess and the University has measured the cost of a lawsuit vs. retention with oversight.
Either way, ‘diversity’ has lost.
What a tone-deaf decision by this university. I am left speechless; in fact, I’m so angry I can barely speak. Why weren’t there any hearings at the university about this? Aren’t the people a Gallaudet listening to the backlash? Their reaction has been very muted; why don’t they speak out against homophobia?
@2eo: even in that instance you’d be assuming she cared about minorities
i doubt she cares about anyone other than herself
@Eric Auerbach: It’s a sign of the times.
I personally am not familiar with the song “Anti-gay Marriage Petition,” but for Chrissakes, let the woman sing whatever songs she wants.
@kingkuy: She cares enough to condone treating large sections of the population as second class.
There’s an irony joke in their somewhere.
I just don’t understand how this person got her job back. This is an employment issue. She is not qualified to do her job. She’s not simply a university employee: her job is to represent the interests of all diverse students and she clearly does not. How will any gay student feel comfortable talking to her about marriage equality when they know that she is against it?
Would a fur company hire a model who poses for PETA ads?
Oh yeah, and please tell the lady to stop singing!
@Eric Auerbach: I see what you did there!
Congratulations to this woman for getting her job back. Looks like the Rainbow nazi’s didn’t whine loud enough for this one.
@Avenger: We’ll win the next one. Don’t you worry.
It may be her right to sign whatever petition she wants to. It is also my right to say she is a bigoted cunt and I hope she kills herself. The First Amendment works both ways.
Ok, like most issues, I see BOTH sides to this. She may be a diversity officer but she also has the right to her own opinion on gay marriage. Hell, i know people in our community who are against gay marriage because of the political route it has taken in different years are we then going to criticize our community for their beliefs? As we request community acceptance we must also be accepting.
This despicable human being needs to go. She CANNOT simultaneously oppose civil rights AND promote/protect diversity. She made her choice, and she chose hate. That’s fine — but the price should be her job.
Raquel is maggie gallagher. Go away Maggie.
Here’s a National Review article written my Mags that harkens back to post #17 as well.
The name Raquel is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Raquel is: Innocent.
The name Raquel is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Raquel is: Innocent.
The name Raquel is a Spanish baby name. In Spanish the meaning of the name Raquel is: Lamb.
Santiago, (also San Iago, San Tiago, Santyago, Sant-Yago, San Thiago) is a Spanish name that derives from the Hebrew name Jacob (Ya’akov) via “Sant Iago,” “Sant Yago,” “Santo Iago,” or “Santo Yago,” first used to denote Saint James the Great, the brother of John the Apostle. It was also the tradition that Saint James (Santiago) had traveled to the Iberian Peninsula during his life and was buried there. The name is also complicated in Spanish in that Jaime and Jacobo are modern versions of James. Another variant is Diego, as in San Diego, as a doublet or variation.
