On January 27th, the weekly SSMU listserv newsletter that goes out to 25,000 undergraduates had the ominous title of “Apology.” What was VP Internal for SSMU Brian Farnan apologizing for?
Using this .gif of Obama in a listserv from three months ago:
Movember is a racist, misogynistic, ageist, geneist and militantly atheist institution that propagates a despicable supremacist ideology.
For the few of you who have yet to be contaminated by this vitriolic propaganda, Movember is an annual event that takes place every November, where men grow moustaches to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Movember fanatics, or “mo bros” as they call themselves, believe their moustaches make them superior to those without moustaches. They have created a month-long event where they can spout their hate speech, while the general population are forced to tolerate–and even support–their unabashed bigotry.
“It depends on what your definition of ‘controversial’ is.” – Queen Arsem-O’Malley, coordinating editor of the McGill Daily
As a responsible McGill student and a morally good human being, you try to read McGill’s various publications. That means Leacock’s, as well as theTribune, the Daily, the Bull & Bear and so on. After all, student journalism is the most effective way to keep abreast of current events and issues relevant to your school and community. Also, it’s a good way to procrastinate without feeling too guilty.
