College Republicans at the University of Central Oklahoma plan on celebrating a Straight Pride Week:
“The general gist is that if you are a straight student on campus be proud, be loud, this is your time to shine,” said college Republican Kyle Houts.
The group has posted fliers on campus that read, “we’re here, we’re conservative, we’re out.”
Members of the Gay Alliance for Tolerance and Equality say they consider the College Republican’s celebration an attack on gay and lesbian students.
“What is there to say about it, ‘I’m proud, and I’m straight and I guess white,’ I don’t know?” said GATE member Jennifer Rodriguez. “I think they definitely are being discriminatory because there’s probably a lot of gay Republicans out there.”
How very intolerant and non-diverse of you, Ms. Rodriguez.

UPDATE: BuckeyePundit mirrors my own sentiments nicely, and The Open End calls for College Republicans at Ohio State to follow the Oklahoma group’s example.
