Prestigious Yale University recently lost a fight to keep military recruiters off its sprawling campus. Determined to make their case, however, about forty Yale Law School students came out yesterday to silently protest Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: the discriminatory law barring openly gay soldiers from fighting for our nation.
Though Yale never barred the military from its campus, it objected to recruiters attending the employer interview program for students. The government, however, threatened to withhold $350 million in funds unless the school gave them access. Unable to fight back, the school agreed. The students, however, refuse to back down.
Who says all Yalies are assholes?
