Note to GVSU College Republicans 

I received the following notice on the campus' announcement email list:

Dear faculty and staff:

In commemoration of Equal Pay Day, the Women�s Equality Group will be holding a

Pay Equity Bake Sale
Tuesday, April 19, 2005
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Show your support for pay equity and enjoy a variety of treats by supporting the Women�s Equality Group.

For more information, you can review this website:

Can you do this at your school? Did your own campus feminist group? Is only one side of the debate allowed to hold bake sales?

On what principle do you stand?

Perhaps you should change your names to All-Student's Equality Group. Or maybe just learn from the results of those of stiffer backbones at Northeastern Illinois, or William and Mary.

You are welcome to post comments and make excuses. You are welcome to say you changed your mind and that your erstwhile president disagreed with you and resigned, and that you were meet and right to change your minds. You can even say, if it is true, that you never gave your erstwhile president permission to hold the sale, as you seem to have tiptoed around this point.

Your behavior is nonetheless craven; your defense of your faculty advisor is nonetheless sophomoric and sycophantic. And you are worthy of not a minute more of my attention.
