A great column
in the Boston Globe deals with some issues at that small, insignificant school up in Cambridge. What's it called again? Oh, right, Harvard.

These are issues that I think are pressing at a lot schools, and I know that they apply at Yale as well. The author, Cathy Young, dissects them well. Take a look.

You knew that a post like this one would require me to comment, didn't you?

I agree with the article's argument. Heterosexuality is the norm and there's not much we can do about that. While "heteronormative" language can be limited in certain conversations, there are times when that language is appropriate. I think what's important is that everyone needs to compromise. The LGBT community needs to be more understanding of the difficulty in including everyone. It is nearly impossible to please everyone when it comes to things like this. If you're walking on egg shells for one group, you have to walk on egg shells for another. On the other hand, the heterosexual community can work to be understanding of the sentiments of the LGBT community. Oddly enough, this is a two way street.
