Dexter display promotes incorrect awareness

I was impressed with the sexual assault display on Dexter Lawn until I saw the sign that SAFER put up next to it. On one side it said something to the effect of, “No one deserves to be raped,” and…

The Outdoor Gunn 10-13-05

Chris Gunn On Monday, I was at Pismo surfing just south of the pier in what turned out to be some exceptionally nice waves.  They were clean, glassy, three to five feet, semi powerful and amazing for Pismo.  On this…

Censorship and the First Amendment

With heat rising from the recent controversy of the spicy posters put up by the Cal Poly Salsa Club, censorship has once again forced itself into the limelight. The huge uproar thus far stands on the side against censoring the…

Administration must stop acts of ignorance

I have always hated the popular phrase “ignorance is bliss.” Fall quarter has almost been in session for four weeks and already the administration has committed acts that deprive students of truth and knowledge on campus. The removal of the…

Ignorance is not bliss

Maybe hiding international news from Americans is part of President Bush’s secret agenda to bolster his decreasing popularity ratings. A massive earthquake has devastated the Kashmir region in Pakistan/India, and no one seems to know or care about it. The…

Providing faculty housing is not the answer, raising salaries is

At first glance, providing a few faculty/staff with housing (Housing Projects on the Horizon, 10/6) for between $300,000 and $400,000 seems like a good solution to the housing problem. Upon further review, however, I believe it is a long-term waste…

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…

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…

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…

If covering the posters was the right thing to do, there's a lot more work to be done

  First, let me start off by saying that I am not a member of CP Salsa, nor do I know any of the 200-plus members of that club. Heck, for a while there I thought the Salsa Club was…
