Criticism of Male Ignorance

Criticism of Male Ignorance

Dear Editor,

It seems that people inevitably come into the Union Hall just to eat lunch even when here's a meeting on, but when Elizabeth Wheelahan was speaking on Friday the level of distracting chatter was at an all-time high.

I was disgusted, though hardly surprised, it the outbursts of male ignorance that persisted through Elizabeth's talk.

Sexism is alive and well and rampant on campus. Confine your oral activities to mastication rather than masturbation, gents.

I was also extremely pissed off that some people - obviously not too concerned about feminism or socialism - managed to dominate discussion to the frustration of those who'd come specifically to hear the speaker.

Incidentally I would suggest that in future the dart-throwers follow their projectiles off the balcony.
