It is assumed that the students who go there identify on the non-hetero spectrum of sexuality. For you to show up in a space like that is unfair. It is exactly what so many people are always talking about, people with a certain privilege taking up space in an environment specifically created to prevent that. Think about all the other places you could go to, why take up space even as an ally?


Anon here. Take up space? Unfair? People with a certain privilege? You know, there is such a thing as reverse discrimination. I don't care what your job fair is aimed at, to expect that it's unfair for others to attend is ridiculous. The inclusion of me an other straight people at the job fair only helps bridge any inherent unfairness - not promote it.

"reverse discrimination." Don't even know where to begin with this one. Take some time to educate yourself, anon. I'm done here.
