William & Mary’s President Low-Key F-U to Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli

SOUNDBITES — “For now, let’s be clear that William & Mary neither discriminates against people nor tolerates discrimination on our campus. Those of us at W&M insist that members of our campus community be people of integrity who have both the capacity to meet their responsibilities to the university and the willingness to engage others with civility and respect. We do not insist, however, that members of our community possess any other particular characteristics, whether denominated in race, religion, nationality, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other of the myriad personal characteristics that differentiate human beings. We certainly do not discriminate against people on such grounds, or tolerate discrimination against them. This is the way we live our lives together at William & Mary, because we believe this is the way we should live our lives together. This is not going to change.” —College of William & Mary president Taylor Reveley in a statement, delivering what Queerty reader Richard calls “a low-key but marvelous fuck you” to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II
