According to the school’s athletic department, it has “decided that Columbia wrestlers will not compete until we have a full understanding of the facts on which to base the official response to this disturbing matter.”
All of these people have displayed behaviour in recent days, weeks and months which have come under scrutiny. This in itself is completely acceptable, we as a society or even as an audience have the right to comment, praise and criticize those that get up on the stage and as such ask us to “look at them.”
However what clearly needs to be addressed here is HOW the audience is criticizing these people and their own behaviours therein.
I stand by the comments I have made in numerous conversations before; yes there have been other gay characters in the Star Trek universe. They have been in the books that are associated with the franchise and are actual characters that contribute to the story line. One you have even seen in a major film production. But their homosexuality has NEVER gotten this much attention.
