Message sent…

A bitch would like to send a tip of the Afro to the several hundred graduates and members of the Wash. U. faculty who turned their back on Phyllis Schlafly in silent protest to her being awarded an honorary degree from Washington University in St. Louis.

And a special “Go on with your bad self!!” goes out to those faculty members who left the stage (daaaaaaaaamn!) to join graduates and turn their back on that heinous woman.
Be proud y’all! You made sure your voice was heard and that is a very powerful thing.

And it also means you’ve earned an honorary degree in keeping shit real!
Fantabulous.

The e-mail the chancellor sent out was so autocratic. The way the administration basically has no regard for the student community is offensive. If it doesn't make money, it just doesn't register on the list of consideration for a lot of the higher-ups.

Very good demonstrations of opposition. And hopefully it will cause others/more to look into her and all the backward beliefs she and other members of her party still hold.

Hit 'em where it hurts, y'all. Don't give to Washington U., and be sure to tell them how, why, and when they forfeited your financial support.

That was awesome. I actually had to look her up b/c I didn't know who she was but I applaud them!

What has Phyllis done to deserve an honorary doctorate? Tell other women that they should be subservient while she lived exactly the opposite? Hate the gays while she has a gay son.

I would not have been silent.
