Two recent American University alumni have decided to sue the university for “defamation of character” because one of its alumni publications mistakenly printed that they were gay.
Now, I in no way support the fact that the university may have allowed this error to go to print. But I do have to ask the question of when the hell we as a society are going to stop looking at homosexuality as scornful. If the magazine had erroneously printed that these two men were married to women, would they be suing anyone? How on earth are we ever supposed to get beyond this sort of garbage if people continue to act in ways that accept the reactions of the ignorant?
What the hell?
