I have to agree. It would seem the leaders of this college are not really trying to make the GLTB student organization any better.

It seems like a divide and conquer strategy to me.

That's what conservatives do; lie, divide, and conquer. The students need to get the ACLU and Lambda Legal involved. They need to bring up their constitutional rights, equal protection, and the federal Equal Access Act.
