TO THE EDITOR:
This is a statement made on behalf of the UNC Chapel Hill College Republicans:
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill promotes being “For All Kind,” which includes all viewpoints. Conservative ideals are as important as liberal ideals on this campus, even if those beliefs are in the minority of opinion.
To see a magazine that champions feminism assume that all women think and vote the same is truly indicative of the hypocrisy of our society. There is a double standard that upholds the defense of women but oppresses women of conservative thinking. We stand by the right of these women and all individuals to think and practice in their beliefs. This statement is not an endorsement of the comments made in the article, but rather an endorsement of the right of free speech for all beliefs.
Using an article on a group of college women as a bully pulpit on a sector of our population, conservative women, is saddening to say the least. This abject journalistic style clearly shows the bias against the Republican Party and conservative ideals in our country. The UNC College Republicans commend these brave women for standing up for their beliefs and we stand by their right to the freedom of speech.
