My Two Cents About The Daily

I felt the Daily's articles about sex were totally inappropriate and unnecessary for an "upstanding" educational institution's newspaper. Among the articles was one about "embarrassing" sex stories where students submit stories about their sexual experiences. Some of the stories included performing oral sex while parents entered the room, queefing, and a few others.

When I pick up a university's newspaper, I expect there to be content in it appropriate to read on campus and not have students feel awkward or embarrassed while reading the paper in class, on break, or at lunch.

I can see these stories being printed in Savage Love, The Stranger, or any alternative magazine, but not one at a university. There is a line you have to draw when it comes "educational" newspapers. I'm surprised that article wasn't edited out.

After reading what the Daily had to offer, I don't feel like the UW is the place for me if that's the content of the school newspaper. I'm sure a lot of prospective students will feel the same way after reading the paper. It isn't good publicity for the school and is just plain obscene and inappropriate in general.
