Rhyming skills: Not a prerequisite for grad school

Early in our graduate careers, the Gay and Lesbian association at our university staged some sort of protest. I can’t remember any details about what the protest was for at all; what I remember is The Doktah joking around about what their protest chant might be.

“We’re here! We’re queer! We want our alcohol!” she chanted. She had to say “alcohol” really fast because it didn’t really fit the meter.

“Or,” I said, “they might try, ‘We’re here! We’re queer! We want our beer!’”

I would like to state that I am not in any way opposed to gay and lesbian rights. I support them fully. My joke was not meant in any way to diminish the cause of their movement. This blog entry is taken a bit out of context. However, I believe it was either Votaire or the Beasty Boys who said that we must all (gay or straight) fight for the right to party.

The only reason I even mentioned that it was a Gay and Lesbian protest was because the "we're queer" part would have made no sense otherwise. This post, like many, is solely to make fun of The Doktah. 'Cause she makes it so easy.

You know, come to think of it, the protest may actually have been about alcohol. Didn't the school try to prohibit even the graduate groups from serving alcohol at functions? So the Gay and Lesbian group was possibly protesting that, and it had nothing to do with their being Gay and Lesbian.
