You're going after the wrong crowd

You’re going after the wrong crowd Finally, someone seems to share my opinion of the rape displays that have been popping up around campus for the two years (going on three) that I’ve been here. Don’t get me wrong, I…

The CPSalsa posters must come down to preserve love

This response to the CPSalsa issue may come a day or two late, but I feel I need to vocally support what has been said by some of the supposed “very small minority.” I am glad the posters were covered…

Group will form to educate campus of red handprints

In light of your story related to the red handprints used to identify where a sexual assault occurred on campus, I would like to comment on the university’s position. Consistent with university policy, Cal Poly will continue the practice of…

Some decency please

Much discussion seems to be occurring around campus concerning the censorship of the Salsa ads. Much of it seems to be focused on whether or not this censorship would be limiting the Salsa club’s right to free speech. In my…

SAFER propaganda is "ignorant, inaccurate and sexist"

SAFER sends an inappropriate and disrespectful message to Cal Poly students. While viewing the display SAFER assembled on Dexter Lawn this past Tuesday I was impressed to see the incorporation of men as rape victims in their statistics. However, I…

Alex Spanos, I want an answer

So, this is great. As I am watching Monday Night Football, John Madden (esteemed Cal Poly alumnus) and Al Michaels have a “special” guest, our Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. I more than understand the politics that must go on in order…

Posters should not be up on public school grounds

Since when do the wants of the many outweigh the rights of the few? I belong to the “very small minority” who think the Cal Poly Salsa posters are inappropriate and don’t belong on campus. Taking down the posters does…

Lynn's views create a confidence hurdle for many women

In response to professor Jennifer Lynn’s reaction to the Salsa club’s posters, I believe that her ignorant views are the kind of thinking that can set back women’s rights 10 years. Unfortunately, most of the women in my generation have…
