Poster hypocrisy

What is that I hear? Nothing?! Amazing.

After hearing the outcry of several Williams students about how offensive and “in-your face” the Coming Out Days posters were, I’m in a bit of a quandary as to why there was no outcry about the very in-your face and sexualized posters for Fright Night.

Could it be that it’s okay for heterosexuals to be throwing sexuality in everyone’s faces all the time, but it’s not okay for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people to do so?! Am I shocked by the hypocrisy? Not particularly.
