Anonymous forums, misused as they have been, can be a good alternative space for dialogue that complements the campus norm. Because of this, we should be trying to use anonymity in civil, productive ways instead of denouncing it as cowardly or corrupt.
Posting from a place of anonymity doesn’t make your thoughts valid or true. And if you’re not careful about what you’re writing, you can seriously hurt some people.
While the rest of the world lets you know just how much they hate the NFL’s replacement referees, Miles Bennett-Smith gives you his fresh take on why you should just embrace the hilarity and enjoy the game.
The world of progressive, meat-eating Southerners was rocked weeks ago when our beloved–anointed, even–Chick-fil-A announced its horribly backwards stance on gay marriage (it’s against it). Not only is this a blow because of the general anti-free-love vibes which are just harshing my mellow, but also because I love Chick-fil-A. I mean, I want to boycott the restaurant, but it’s just so good. (But is it too good?) This is no new conundrum; people have been conflicted with whether to buy or boycott since the less-than-glamorous Boston Tea Party–though we’d like to believe that that self-inflicted embargo was because of the subjugation of India and not high tea prices.
