I'm not doin theology full time - it's at another uni
my main problem is here on my home campus - the chaplin is an ardent poofter basher and his predecessor even got 'exodus' in here - a well know reversion therapy radical christian anti gay group to try and revert poofs into being straight home boys
the glbt student community here is just still licking it's war wounds over that issue - with just having being able to throw them off campus - but only when there was some suggestion that the minister involved was molesting the blokes who came to him - the uni still doesn't want to talk about it or the larger issue of glbt rights and recognition on campus - and all this in NSW where supposedly you have the strongest anti-dismcrimination laws in oz
it's all down to the fact that Labour is in trouble being a minority government and it can feel already the fall out over the rising ssm advocacy ~ so you can appreciate that anything that smacks of gay issues has gotten an un-offical don't touch sign on it in the public service and the judiciary - I don't need to do a thesis on hetronormativity ~ I'm living it comrade!
just getting back to the other uni [school of theo] I have talked about it on other threads... it's currently before the uni ombudsman... and I'm organising a bit of pressure on the uni thru the gay press... but oz is about to go inot xmas break & the tert sector doesn't quite wake up again until late feb. ['sides i got an extension for my report/thesis and I'm concentrating on that] - but wait and see ... I'll hit the campaign hard, next semester... as I'll be campaign over the issue to get me a seat on the student council for external students or a representative of theological students ~ i think ol' St Marks is regrettin already gettin involved with a secular university
