BYU Students Who Made “It Gets Better” Video Won’t Be Expelled Unless They Have Gay Sex

Carri Jenkins, an assistant to the president of Brigham Young University, says that the LGBT students who made a depressing “It Gets Better” video won’t be punished unless they act on their gay feelings, which is against the Mormon college’s Honor Code.

According to CNN:

Jenkins went on to say that for the video alone, the students would not be punished. The honor code, Jenkins said, is “based on conduct, not on feeling, and if same-gender attraction is only stated, that is not an honor code issue.”

All BYU students sign on to the honor code upon enrollment. The code outlaws premarital sex and breaking the code “may result in actions up to and including separation from the university.”

“Homosexual behavior is inappropriate and violates the honor code. Homosexual behavior includes not only sexual relations between members of the same sex, but all forms of physical intimacy that give expression to homosexual feelings,” reads the honor code.

“Homosexual behavior is inappropriate and violates the honor code. Homosexual behavior includes not only sexual relations between members of the same sex, but all forms of physical intimacy that give expression to homosexual feelings.”

So that’s probably why none of the kids in the video looked very happy. Because, in addition to being told they’re aberrations from the norm sexually, they can’t even act on their feelings to see how healthy and fulfilling a gay relationship can be—sex included.

Are straight Mormons at BYU being kicked out for having sex? I at least hope these students are allowed to masturbate. Because if the “It Gets Better” campaign needs a helping hand anytime, I have an idea for a “Just Jack Off” project.

Here’s their IGB video again:
