Last month some time, someone administrative from the services side sent around an email requesting that everyone on campus dress in campus colors every Friday. This morning, I saw a little poster put up about it.
Folks, I'm an adult. If I want to dress in colors and such, fine. But this semi-official "everyone dress like we're high school students" stuff is just irritating.
And yesterday, a faculty member sent around an email requesting that
everyone wear "ugly sweaters" or other "holiday" garb, including a list
that was very Christian-centered.
Also, I'm not Christian. For six to eight weeks a year, I get slammed with Christmas stuff. Last Friday, for example, I turned on NPR in the morning to a Christmas song, and I immediately turned it off. I have no idea why they had a Christmas song playing (between segments, maybe?), but I just couldn't bear it.
And I don't have any sweaters I consider ugly. I've gotten rid of sweaters I considered ugly, but they're no longer taking up my closet space.
Why, oh why, are we at a public institution being BSed into wearing Christmas crap?
I don't know how to respond. Christians here are so effing repressive that any complaint will be made into a war on Christmas thing.
