"You are a blackmailing asshole: "Last year when the tech wrote an article about the living pink guide, there was a fraternity that didn't bother sending it out, and as a result they had to pretty much explain that their house isn't homophobic publicly in the school newspaper. It's unfortunate when fraternities get bad press for reinforcing stereotypes, so the living pink exec team is hoping to not repeat that again this year." This is not a reflection on my views towards gay people, as I have many gay friends and have no problem with people being gay. It's a reflection on the fact that you are an asshole."

"Carlos Garay sent an email to our president (put in touch by a guy named Tommy Anderson), basically threatening that if we didn't respond to this survey we would be publicly denounced in the Tech for our lack of participation in the survey. / / I'm gay, and I'm a senior. I came out almost two years ago, and the first people I came out to were in my fraternity. They were accepting and very supportive of me during the period of time where I was not yet comfortable with myself and still figuring out who I was. Since mid-February, I've been dating a great guy and I brought him to my fraternity numerous times, feeling free to introduce him to the brothers of my fraternity and have conversations. I'm not the only gay guy in my frat; there's somebody else too, who also feels happy with the fraternity and feels comfortable. We've helped each other out with our own problems about dating, identity, etc. before. / / To be threatened like this is insulting. My frat has been nothing but supportive of me, and if there's a reason that there's a low response rate it's because of poor publicity. Please rethink your policy for how you report these results, since I'm sure DKE didn't deserve it either last year."

"AEPi is extremely accepting and tolerant of all people. It's actually one of my favorite things about the fraternity."

"I have a gay roommate. I don't mind at all, it isn't awkward or strange and is the same as having a straight roommate."

"I feel my living group is extremely open to people of all sexual orientations. We accept brothers based on their personality and how we think they'll fit in with the group - their sexuality is really not a factor. We have a couple of gay brothers and it's not at all a touchy topic. From what I've seen, MIT as a whole is a pretty accepting community. I think members of the LGBTQ community can be open about who they are and will ultimately be treated based on their personality."
