Kids OK’d to Wear “Straight Pride” Shirts at Illinois School

Okay, shirts that proclaim “Straight Pride” on the fronts are moronic and ridiculous to begin with. Like some people are saying, it’s akin to “White Pride,” and it’s redundant, of course, since straight people pretty much get whatever the hell they want—marriage rights, adoption rights, portrayal in the media, complete and total acceptance by society—which sort of negates the whole purpose of wearing a “pride” t-shirt, right?

EcoVillages: Study Abroad and Make a Difference

If you’re in college and you want to study abroad, I am 100% in favor of it. I don’t know you, I don’t know your situation, but if there’s one thing that I wholly support in college, it’s studying abroad. It was by far the best thing I did whilst in college (well, perhaps tied—maybe nearly tied—with being on the debate team) and if you get the chance, you can make it work, you have a scholarship, etc. then go for it!
