The director of the London School of Economics has encouraged students upset by “sexist, homophobic and class-ist” leaflets handed out by the men’s rugby club to seek counselling.Oh, the poor, delicate little flowers! However will they cope with life?
Professor Calhoun said he was “proud” of the Students’ Union for their “prompt and decisive action” in disbanding the men’s rugby team for a year.Because collective punishment is the only kind worth applauding in ProgressiveLand.
He said the university is currently drawing up plans for a “School-wide programme of practical action” to combat sexist and homophobic abuse.But the LSE athletics union isn’t going to take this lying down, and plans to appeal.
The LSE women’s rugby and hockey clubs, men’s football and the netball club all agreed with the athletics union’s decision to appeal against the disbandment.*gets popcorn*
