'Year of the Queer' for Gollin Brat
#1
In case you missed the Fall 2012 edition of the Oberlin College Institute for Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies newsletter, here are some of the many Rolleyes highlights.

Yes, it's the Year of the Queer at Oberlin. Somehow I think you would be safe in assuming that every year is the Year of the Queer there, but it's nice to have an official pronouncement.

Year of the Queer is an interdisciplinary series of academic courses, distinguished speakers, amazing performances, and engaging social events organized to inspire and support a campus- and community-wide conversation about queer life today.

Students, faculty, staff and community members participate in a variety of ways, through academic study, engaging with leading scholars, discussing lectures and performances, dancing and performing, and reflecting on the meaning of queer, both locally and globally.

Thus far, Oberlin has hosted Judith Jack Halberstam, Dean Spade, Andrea Ritchie, Joey Mogul, and David Halperin. Stephen Motika and Esther Newton will also deliver lectures this fall. In Spring 2013, the following will visit campus, meet with students, faculty and staff, and deliver lectures: Sarah Schulman, Holly Hughes, Larry LaFountian, Urvashi Vaid, and Mari Matsuda.

Year of the Queer is a collaborative effort. The faculty committee (Ann Cooper Albright, Harry Hirsch, Greggor Mattson, Meredith Raimondo and Patrick O’Connor) works with the student liaisons/assistants/YoQ Grrrrls, A.D. Hogan ’13 and Lexie Sharabianlou ’13, to organize and publicize the series. YoQ also includes student activism. Hogan, along with Becca Kahn Bloch ’13 also organized the Queering the Law series, an ongoing lecture, discussion, and film series about the role of the state, the law, disciplinarity and queer embodiment.

Further, the YoQ has collaborated with a number of departments and institutes, including GSFS, Comparative American Studies, Politics, Sociology, Dance, Hispanic Studies, Anthropology, English, as well as
Offices and Centers on campus, including Shansi Oberlin, the Multicultural Resource Center, the Office of the Dean of Students, the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences, the Office for Religious and Spiritual Life, among many others, to make the series truly interdisciplinary.

Attendance at all events has been remarkable, with hundreds of students, faculty, and staff, and members of the community coming to each lecture, and hundreds of students doing “queer”/Year of the Queer-related coursework.

And look who is featured among the illustrious alumni. How proud dear old dad must be of his little darling.

I graduated with a double major in GSFS and Comparative American Studies in May 2011. In September, I started my second year as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at the University of Szczecin in Szczecin, Poland where I teach writing to master's students and conversation classes for first-year bachelor's students. I'm having a great adventure learning Polish and traveling in my free time.

You may be on to something there.

What's the deal on the pink squirrel? Are squirrels the new symbol of perversion? Is it some "hiding its nuts" joke? Is George Gollin giving new meaning to the term "squirrel bait"?

Shame on you DB! That's uncalled for.

There's no need to insult poor Ringo and his family by comparing them to the vile Gollin filth. Ringo's daughter Lee is a lovely lady, who fortunately inherited the better part of her mom's looks.

You do have to feel a little sorry for Skanko, er, I mean darling young Chlamydia. She had the bad fortune to have the ugly gene on both sides of the family. It's got to be tough when you have so little to work with.

At least when she puts "Queer of the Year" on her resume people stop trying to fix her up with their hopelessly ugly male friends and relatives.

Comparing Gollins to filth is an insult to filth.
