This afternoon, two men arrived outside the Ben Franklin statue (and our lovely button!) and started preaching women on their "behavior," releasing a slew of bigoted views. Later on, one "preacher" remained as he needed to explain the rules on spotting a lesbian (i.e. if she wears pants/has short wear); called women whores and said that women don't have brains.
Fortunately, everyone immediately realized this was absolutely ridiculous. A crowd of students soon gathered around him, protesting his statements, riffing at his lousy stories and showing, in a deliciously sassy way, that Penn doesn't stand for this kind of bigotry.
Since this counter-protest was pretty awesome, we want to applaud the following heroes:
- The student who danced around with sign: BUTT SEX = HEAVEN / INTOLERANCE = HELL
- The brave Quaker who played gay porn on his laptop for the unwanted guest
- A certain DP staffer who may or may not have yelled in the guy's face.
