Campus Reform went undercover at Cornell University, and used a fake petition to gauge student’s reactions to a Valentine’s Day petition, banning the holiday “on the grounds that it was simply too offensive to students without a romantic partner.” The results were troubling.
Campus Reform reports: It quickly became clear that students at Cornell were more than willing to go along with any measure that would supposedly make campus a more inclusive space.
“That’s a really nice petition,” said one student, while another admitted “I’m in a relationship, but I totally understand.”
One student condemned the school’s handling of the holiday in the past, saying “I would also point out the administration is really heteronormative about [Valentine’s Day] which is kinda f***** up.”
One student went so far as to ask for our contact information, so they could share the fabricated petition online to gain more supporters.
