Groups Respond to Inflatable Penis Controversy, Plan Protest Outside Spec

Late-night news in “Giant Inflatable Penis-gate,” as the queer community has moved quickly to respond to the controversial editorial published in Wednesday’s Spectator.

The Columbia Spectator and the Case of the Misattributed Phallus

An amused tipster — who has thoughtfully already coined the phrase “Giant Inflatable Penis-Gate” — has just pointed Bwog in the director of Spec‘s recent correction to this morning’s staff editorial on Queer Awareness Month.

Ensuciamos. We fucked up.

CORRECTION to earlier post: It appears that our source on the statistic that 13 out of 57 people tested for HIV yesterday must have misheard: according to a staff member at the Gay Health Advocacy Project, Bronx AIDS Services (who provided the HIV antibody testing) clarified that only 29 people were tested–none positive.

Bwog Truth Squad: Domes and Foners

In which the Bwog apologizes for getting a couple facts wrong: – In the February issue, Brendan Ballou wrote that “Rebel With Uranium” Ken Hechtman and his merry band of anarchists “were the first to reach the Low Library roof, and as far as we know, the last.” Correction: They were not the last. – […]

False Facts in GSEU Propaganda

A poster of the Graduate Students Employee Union in Mudd claims “According to the Living Wage Project at Penn State University, the minimum living wage for a single person’s very basic budget in New York City is $21,272.” A visit to the poster’s cited Living Wage Calculator reveals the living wage estimate for a single […]

The Dumb Column Factory

My first Spectator column of the year came out Monday, and I proved myself to be a royal idiot. Soon after, I sent a mea culpa to the Spec sports staff, the athletic department, and a few angry student athletes — see after the jump. But before the jump … please don’t call me a […]
