Bishops Move Seminar from Notre Dame to Protest Planned Campus Performance of Offensive Monologues - Catholic Online
Even though I look back on my time at Notre Dame as one of the most depressing (and overtly sexist) times and places of my life, I'm still glad to see The Vagina Monologues continue at ND. Kudos to them for realizing that a Catholic education doesn't mean denying the existence of things you don't like. I hope the Queer Film Festival still survives as well. The spirit of inclusion page mentions sexual orientation (more than once in the first paragraph, in fact), but the non-discrimination clause does not. Baby steps, baby steps.
Not sure how many Domers read this, but does anyone remember funny stories about controversy around vaginas at Notre Dame? Like when the lights went out during the first performance, and someone shouted "Oh no, it's the Knights of Columbus!" or when someone wrote in to The Observer complaining that his ten year old brother had to see fliers with the word vagina on them?
