Faginal Sex

Hi readers! I know it’s summer and not prime blogging time, but I watched this today and couldn’t resist posting. It’s vacation and no one needs to even talk about what makes this video so hilarious/terrifying, so just watch it and have a laugh at this idiot’s expense.

Potential Lesbian Replacement for Souter

On May 4th, Barnard held its “Celebration of Pride”, a ceremony intended to honor the achievements of graduating Barnard seniors who were active in the LGBTQ movement on campus.
