I am so ashamed, embarrassed, and angry that my university is giving an honorary degree to Phyllis Schlafly.

I don't toss around the word hate lightly, but I hate Phyllis Schlafly.

OH NO! That made me vomit in my mouth a little bit. What a horrible horrible woman. I'd tell you to quit your job to make a statement about the situation, but I can't support us working at Six Flags.

Yeah, unfortunately!

The university obviously has no morals. Or maybe they do, and they're bad morals.

Whoa. I am shocked there hasn't been an outcry from the faculty and students. Yes, let's totally award a degree to the most un-progressive, anti-intellectual person ever..sounds like a good plan!

Anonymous - it appears that the outcry is happening online via Facebook groups! Kids these days!

There are two groups: one for general discussion and one for the commencement protest planning.

I think faculty are probably in a stuck position. You know, can't rock the boat if you're up for tenure or want to ensure funding...and that other political junk. However, I know my school's academic dean is PISSED.
