Overall, I feel that Dumas’s op-ed overgeneralizes the homosexual community at the U of C as one that essentially desires programming featuring “feather boas, ass-less chaps, and celebrity gossip.”
Forget about having PRIDE all wrong, it sounds like Luke Dumas would like to throw away 15 years of progress and turn having a gay sexual orientation into being, by nature, some Fox sitcom’s gay supporting character.
The April 28 Viewpoints article covering Pride Week (“Having a Gay Old Time,” 4/28/09) is massively misinformed.
In reading Luke Dumas’s “Having a Gay Old Time” (4/28/09), I found it impossible to resist “straightening out” a few of his most misinformed and offensive comments.
Pride Week needs some spicing up.
