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…

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…

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…

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…

Greek facts misconstrued

I hate to be one that keeps adding to how distorted Mr. Kirkish’s views are on the greek system, but I feel another low was hit in the arguments. While required to do a philanthropy, it means more to us…

Stop popping your collar or I will take matters into my own hands

I have a huge problem, and unfortunately it is with my roommate. Let us just refer to him as “Ben,” so that we can protect the accused. As of late, Ben has been walking around with an unusual bounce in…

The dating drive-thru: Would you like sex with that?

As Americans, we prize efficiency, speed and cheapness. After all, it’s this foundation that has made fast food chains so effective. But it has also transformed the college way of “dating” into the equivalent of a McDonald’s drive-thru. Hook-ups are…

The Title V Code of Conduct

As American students, we cherish our freedom and our rights. In the California State University system student behavior is governed by a particularly undemocratic code of conduct. The Title V Code of Conduct applies to all students in the CSU…
