Response to Emily's Abstinence Column

Last week Emily wrote a column denouncing programs that teach contraception. Because the Daily Reveille likes to publish lengthy rebuttals to anything Emily writes, today next to Emily's column we have the misfortune of reading a response piece put out by a women's studies major. If you have the time, please respond to this piece of....work.

You say "women's studies major" like her ideas are requisite of the field!

I hadn't meant it like that. I was trying to figure out how to refer to the girl when I wrote the post, b/c she's not a columnist, she doesn't claim affiliation with Planned Parenthood or VOX or anyone like that in her letter, she's only a women's studies and sociology major who exceeded the Reveille's 400 word limit and was punished for it by having her letter made a feature column.

But you're right, women's studies does not neccessarily incorporate the ideas that Ms. Hebert represents. Sorry for the screw-up.

She's the founder of the now-defunct PARLE, which is a pro-choice group on campus that later joined up with Planned Parenthood and became VOX.

Anyway, no worries, Michael. I just like to play the antagonist sometimes, especially when it comes to language issues.

I think her ideas are representative of the field. Don't let her push you around, Michael.
