S.C. college’s production highlights political battle between lawmakers, public universities - The Washington Post
My lovely state.
The House has passed a bill that cuts $52,000 in funding to the College of Charleston for having a graphic novel about a family dealing with the suicide of a closeted gay father on the reading list for an introductory course and $17,000 to USC Upstate for having a gay and lesbian awareness week.
These politicians and those who support them seem to think if you just ignore the existence of something it'll go away. Trying to punish public universities for highlighting issues in the LGBT community is nothing short of authoritarian censorship.
