Letter to the Editor: Distasteful comment is unacceptable

by Zachary R. Rose Student

Dear Editor,

Recently, it has come to my attention that a member of an organization on campus sent a distasteful text to some of the group’s members. The individual called a student, who also works in an office on campus, a “tacky fag.”

It really upsets me that such a comment would be made by someone who is a leader on campus, someone who should be held to a higher standard and set a better example. It’s sad that while society is trying to progress and put an end to discrimination based on sexuality, that one of our own would make UNA look so primal.

I am disappointed and would hope the individual feels shameful for such a poor decision and makes a personal and/or public apology due to those actions.
