    Pinkett Smithís Remarks Debated

    BGLTSA calls comments heteronormative, pledges to work with Foundation

    By ANNA M. FRIEDMAN
    Contributing Writer

    After some students were offended by Jada Pinkett Smith's comments at Saturdayís Cultural Rhythms show, the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA) and the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations have begun working together to increase sensitivity toward issues of sexuality at Harvard.

    Students said that some of Pinkett Smithís remarks concerning appropriate gender roles were specific to heterosexual relationships.

    In a press release circulated yesterday by the BGLTSA and developed in coordination with the Foundationóthe BGLTSA called for an apology from the Foundation and encouraged future discussion of the issue.

    According to the Foundationís Student Advisory Committee (SAC) Co-Chair Yannis M. Paulus , the two groups have already planned concrete ways to address the concerns that Pinkett Smithís speech rose.

    The BGLTSA release acknowledged that the Foundation was not responsible for Pinkett Smithís comments. But the Foundation has pledged to take responsibility to inform future speakers that they will be speaking to an audience diverse in race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender and class,according to the release.

    Pinkett Smith was honored as the Foundationís Artist of the Year at its 20th annual Cultural Rhythms show, which she also hosted.

    BGLTSA Co-Chair Jordan B. Woods í06 said that, while many BGLTSA members thought Pinkett Smith's speech was motivational, some were insulted because they thought she narrowly defined the roles of men and women in relationships.

    Some of the content was extremely heteronormative, and made BGLTSA members feel uncomfortable, he said.

    Calling the comments heteronormative, according to Woods, means they implied that standard sexual relationships are only between males and females.

    When you are dealing with people who have a brain defect(for their sake they better hope it is found) similar to one who has autism etc. etc., you are going to get this kind of erratic and irrational behavior.

    HLCP knows he's wrong but as we can see from this will go to any length no matter how erroneous or faux to protest his righteousness.

    I try not to be violent...but the people complained need to be choked. Literally choked until they stop their act. They are acting like idiots. I refuse to believe people could be that stupid.

    (sigh)

    Does Darin Pemberton have to choke some bitches?

    Since heterosexual relationships are the norm, and have been for all of history, then shouldn't relationships be described in such a way?

    Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone knows that gay is normal! You hear about people who have led straight lives for years and years, were married, had kids and suddenly realized that they were gay! That's OK. But if someone who was in the gay lifestyle comes out of it and starts leading a straight lifestyle.... why that's just not possible, in fact they're sick or something, or just denying what they really are! And any doctor that treats such people is a QUACK!!!

    We all know that once gay always gay.... or as the gay activists would like to have us all believe.... we're all gay, but most of us are in denial!
