What is it with students at premiere colleges these days? First Standford’s student body rises up against marriage discrimination, and now Yale Law School kids are penning an open letter to U.S. military recruiters (and, more appropriately, President Obama) to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Don’t you people have classes to study for?!
Last year, Yale’s LGBT org Outlaw protested the recruiters’ participation in a jobs fair. This year, there will be no such demonstration — only because Yale moved the fair to late August, when students weren’t even on campus. The university, meanwhile, happily accepts federal funds — something it would almost certainly have to give up if it kicked recruiters off campus.
Which would be a damn shame, because they we’d have so many fewer stories from our friends at Yale who slept with such men in uniform. Yes, really.
