Wasting my student fees

Re: Coming Out Week

To the Editor:

On Oct. 16, The Gazette included the magazine Pravda. This issue of Pravda was dedicated to generating a discussion on gay/lesbian/bisexual issues. I was, however, very disappointed that this "discussion" did not include any conversations with people concerned about the health of this alternative lifestyle.

I personally find it very distressing that the University Students' Council believes it is necessary to waste student fees and student resources on promoting homosexuality through Coming Out Week, the gay/lesbian/bisexual issues commission and this most recent issue of Pravda. I do not believe this waste should continue, especially considering the only homosexual club on campus is being deratified because of a lack of interest.

Any discussion about the homosexual community should include an examination of the problems associated with this unhealthy lifestyle and provide advice on choosing a healthy lifestyle for students struggling with these issues.
