How Washington University Is Sticking Its Hands Into Alumni Pockets

THE SHOT — St. Louis’ Washington University, the school that canceled its annual freshman class trip to Target over the retailer’s anti-gay political donations, is asking alumni for donations by mailing this brochure featuring the men’s pool team … getting wet. “Showing some skin is definitely a good way to get at any gay man’s wallet,” says a Queerty reader and WashU alum. “I’m a sucker for shirtless go-go boys in bars and cant help but tip them. And this was no different. I couldn’t help but send my alma mater a little donation after seeing this brochure :)”

    As a Gay man, and a Washington Univ MBA graduate, I won’t be donating to them because of their recent awarding of a prestigious alumni award to Phyllis Schlafly (over vociferous protests of alumni such as myself as well as from the Wash U student body).

    Furthermore, I might wait until any donations would not go to help extremist (and I mean extreme extremist) homophobic Physics professor Jonathan Katz is no longer associated with Wash U.

    These recent steps are in the right direction, but Wash U. has been tone deaf for way too long. I’d like to wait and see before I start donating.
