Following yesterday’s rally for a full-time staff person, I picked up a copy of The News Record, the independent student newspaper at the University of Cincinnati, and saw this on the front page:
In case you can’t read the top headline is says, “Ooh, that’s some pink hair,” in reference to Jac Stringer’s magenta mane. The people pictured are, from left to right, K.D. Miller and Jason Bernstein, organizers of the rally; Nate Wessel, vice president of UC student group Out On Campus; Cody Globig from Impact Cincinnati; and Jac Stringer, the founder of GenderBloc, is front and center.
The News Record also printed a letter to the editor that responded to the paper’s recent coverage of the anti-gay hate crime. The letter, written by UC student Jason Roberts, applauded The News Record for covering the event, but chided it for printing the term “sexual preferences” in a staff editorial that denounced the anti-gay hate crime.
Unfortunately, I cannot find these two articles on The News Record‘s Web site, but I do have a picture of the letter to the editor that appeared in today’s paper.
In other news, on McMicken Commons there are quite a few instances of chalking on the sidewalks. Most of the sayings are pretty similar and focus on sexual assault, as this is sexual assault awareness month. My favorite of all of the chalkings is below and was made by Alyssa Gates a member of Reclaim, UC Women’s Center’s 24-hour sexual assault help line.
I also came across this sign today. I know they are old and I have seen them all over campus, but they still crack me up every time I see them.
These flyers were a promotion for a METRO/CWEST event that was to take place on March 13 in Zimmer Auditorium. This has nothing to do with testosterone, but that’s all me and my friends thought of every time we saw these flyers. There is also a promotional video about “t.” Whatever their “t” was, I am sure it wasn’t the T I was thinking of.
