Take a second and read The Daily Targum's editorial response to the media attention surrounding Tyler Clementi's suicide.
My response to the editorial is confusion. Is it the case that, somehow or another, the outcry over bullying of LGBT teens and college students is antithetical to mourning? As if, somehow, we can't be doing both simultaneously? Whoever wrote the editorial not only missed the point in their attempt to uphold the university reputation, but also creates a fallacy that could have been avoided. What an unfortunate piece of writing to post in response to all of this.
