Anonymous Posts (5.24.11-5.30.11)

Every week, we collect anonymous entries sent in using the link on our sidebar and post them all on Monday. We post anything as long as it doesn't contain personal attacks, hate speech, or express or insinuate that one is at risk for hurting themselves or someone else. Please read this for an explanation of this policy and seek help if your or a friend find yourself in that position. With those exceptions aside, please feel free to submit your thoughts and questions. :)

I'm finally back home in the 602 (hi, Phoenix readers!)!! And let me tell you, there is nothing like spending quality time having quality talks with quality people.

THE JEWISH THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY JUST ORDAINED ITS FIRST OPENLY LESBIAN RABBI!! Rabbi Rachel Isaacs is actually the first openly Lesbian, Gay, Bi or Trans rabbi to be ordained by the Conservative Movement of Judaism. #QueerWomenVictory

I hear there is going to be a contingent of Dukies at NYC Pride next month (which is, uhh, basically this month). So stay posted for more information.

The blog's been slow recently (as if you didn't notice), but we're working on it. I promise!

Also, shout out to Duke Track & Field who are still busting their butts to represent our school well. Ten athletes (the most ever) have qualified for nationals!

We don't actually have any anonymous posts this week :( But please remember that there are a number of resources available on campus and in the local community. If you or a friend are experiencing thoughts or urges to harm yourself or somebody else, please reach out to the following resources: In an emergency, please don't hesitate to call CAPS at any time, including "after hours" at (919) 966-3820. Ask to speak to the advice nurse and tell them you are a Duke student. You may also call the Trevor Project, a national hotline specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and questioning youth (college students included). Their number is 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386).
