Comments (secondary residence)

"I have found my living group and sorority to be extremely accepting of all individuals, regardless of sexual preference - it tends to be a non-issue that doesn't ever really present itself."

"As a conservative person, I do not partake in discussing sexual exploits of any kind, straight or gay, monogamous or non-monogamous. I have noticed that my LGBTQ friends, at least the ones open about their preference, tend to embrace their sexuality more than the average person, and freely talk about their sexual experiences. This has made me uncomfortable in the past, however, it was not because of their sexual orientation, but rather, their proclivity to provide immense detail, which I find uncomfortable coming from anyone, not just LGBTQ individuals. A big part of me wishes that this could stop being such a big deal - so a girl likes a girl? So what?! What people do in their personal time is their personal business. None of us should feel the need to care or hear about it."

"I don't think the ally community speaks out enough. When I promoted an event that supported the LBGTQ community, I think a lot of people assumed I was gay even though I'm not. I would like it to be more common for straight people to stand up for gay rights and I think the message would be more effective, too. The LGBTQ community is full of some of the strongest people I know, and I wish the straight community would be as confident and speak out on their behalf more often."

"Some Pi Phis don't seem to "get it" - but all of my sisters are willing to learn, even (sometimes especially) the very religious ones, who are all sweet and non-judgmental. In East Campus, LGBTQ people are almost as prevalent as dyed hair - you might say we're all kinds of rainbow."
