"Should be killed..."

Dublin Core


The 1994 Jack issues of the Pioneer, the “Piobeer,” featured an article entitled “Faggots should be killed, says Coalition,” and a joke letter from the “Coalition Against the Fust Amendment.” The inflammatory and homophobic nature of this piece caused President Tom Cronin to release a letter apologizing for the Pioneer. In the letter, Cronin affirmed that “We trust the damage and hurt caused by this incivility will pass, and that the pain will heal as we take the opportunity to remind ourselves that this community shares a set of ethical values that grow out of our mission to provide a challenging academic environment, where knowledge and understanding can be pursued by all our members in an atmosphere of respect and honesty.”
