GAY JEANS DAY?
Slate’s Sue Halpern writes,
On the Middlebury campus, meanwhile, it is Gay Jeans Day, and many of us are wearing jeans to show our support for gay rights. Indeed, surveying the students who pass me as I walk to my class, I feel proud of our community for being so broad-minded.
It’s unclear from the tone of her piece whether she’s being intentionally ironic. I’m not sure about Middlebury College, but the sight of jeans on a college campus, especially as the weather is turning cooler, is hardly an indicator of anything. They might as well have “Get Drunk for George Bush Night.”
