Dana Beyer

Since much homophobia and transphobia is rooted in misogyny, it's clear to me that in order to cleanse our faith-based institution of anti-LGBT bigotry, we're going to have to do a much better job of dealing with the pervasive sexism. That will require a very long-term effort.

Dr. Arthur F. Kirk, Jr.

I am not going to argue that a four-year college education isn't expensive. It is. I won't argue that its return on investment makes it worthwhile, although it surely does. I also cannot argue that increasing the number of administrators doesn't increase the cost of a higher education. It does.

Drinking does not cause rapes to happen. The only cause of rape is sexually predatorial behavior; the only people responsible for rape are rapists.
