The wrong reason
Unaccountably famed ethicist Margaret Somerville
has always argued that marriage is hetero because heteros say it is.
Her argument's a squirming stain to those who believe in, well, the clean lines of logic. So opposition to Ryerson University's
offer of an honorary doctorate
to Ms S is understandable. Except that this petition
to keep Somerville from getting the award has nothing to do with the fact that she's an embarrassment to the rigourous thinkers of academia, but rather simply because her anti-gay and anti-feminist views are "controversial."
Please don't sign it. Not if "controversial" is the reason cited.
All together now: We are big enough and brave enough and strong enough to allow people to disagree with our politics. Those who sign this petition are stifling dissent, and helping to create a martyr.
