Overheard: Queer Columbia

It's an eye-opener for everybody, not just you, straight, white, males

Queerness is basically an unspoken bonus here at Columbia

This past weekend Bwog overheard a profound insight on 115th and Broadway:

Well you know my rule about Columbia: assume gay until proven gay.

If this isn’t already your general rule of thumb here in MoHo, you must be a freshman.

  • British Columbia? says:

    @British Columbia? Apparently we’re in the UK now, judging by the photo.

    Incidentally, interesting coincidence between here and Britain- there never was and never will be a MoHo neighborhood in London too!

    @Anonymous MoHo more like HoMo.

    Also Bwog please have a stern talk with whoever keeps coming up with those nicknames you try to turn into A Thing. None of them are good and they are all not good.

        @Anonymous Morningside is best.

        MSide is acceptable.

        MoHi is an abomination.

  • student says:

    @student I think you mean “assume gay until proven straight”…

    1. over your head says:

      @over your head That’s the joke… everybody is gay apparently.
