1. I think you might have the opposition caught in a bit of a Catch 22. If they are of the opinion that “sexual orientation” is a matter of choice (like marital status or religion, great point!) then someone can ‘choose’ which orientation better suits the situation. However, if they admit that “sexual orientation” is genetically predetermined then it should be a protected class such as Race or sex/gender.
    So until our current representatives awaken to the facts or we elect NEW representatives who realize which century we are in, then I suggest our friends use this two edged sword to defend against the forces of inequality.

  2. Molly, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I appreciate everything you did that year. Today was a pretty emotional day on campus with our rally against discrimination and after reading this blog, I cried. We never would have gotten it passed if you hadn’t worked as hard as you did and I am so sorry that people vandalized your things because of it. We will never EVER forget what you did and you can bet that while I’m still here (a whole two more months) I will fight (along with the newer generations) against Kuccinelli’s policy. They will not take that from us.

    Thank you so much.

  3. Molly, you were the best president I think we ever had and certainly the bravest (Sorry again, if I came off as arrogant during my brief campaign for SGA!). A protest was organized today in response to McDonnell’s executive order. I hope one day we can prevent sexual discrimination (Did you know that Mexico has legalized same sex marriage? We are officially less progressive than Mexico!!). Never stay silent, Miss Buckley.

  4. Molly! Thank you so much for everything you do! You are incredible and I always loved following your activities on campus. Keep it up, babe… you are an inspiration!

  5. Wow, Molly — I had no idea about any of that except for the letter from the AG.

    You’re totally awesome. Of course, you knew that.
