I don’t know what prompted you to send me the dumbest message I’ve received in at least 6 months, but nowhere in the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of “fitness” do I find the word “skinny.” Even synonyms for the word “fitness” focus 100% on health attributes as opposed to size attributes. So I’m sorry if you have this deep seeded complex that refuses to allow you to accept that, from all standpoints of medicine, science, and flat out fact, fitness is irrelevant to body size. That really sucks for you that your brain is struggling to let you come to terms with that. However, it is also 100% not my problem.
In order to obtain a complete liberal arts education, one must learn and be aware of different identity politics. Colgate University, at this moment,…
I know I don’t ask too much of you, but this issue is extremely important to me. Please consider signing this petition in support of the students at Colgate University, my alma mater. Right now there is a sit-in going on in the Admissions Building on campus and students are demanding action from the administration following a string of racist and homophobic comments using the social app, yik yak. Also, students have been taunted on the Colgate Cruiser (the shuttle on campus) about how black and other minority students don’t belong on campus. This is unacceptable, and goes against Colgate’s mission to foster a diverse and inclusive environment. Please help me to “spread this like wildfire.” Racism, prejudice, and discrimination are alive and the reality of the situation is painful. First-year students, who have only been on campus for four weeks, already regret their decisions to come to Colgate because of the hateful atmosphere. So please sign and spread this petition. Thank you!
