While walking on campus Wednesday, I saw a number of pick up trucks displaying paper signs emblazoned with the Texas A&M Young Conservatives name. One of these signs featured the slogan "Texas A&M: Where girls like guys, and guys like girls." Not only is this statement disrespectful, but it also demonstrates blatant ignorance of homosexual population. It is foolish to think that, although the majority of Texas A&M students consider themselves to be straight, it is acceptable to ignore or ostracize the significant percentage of students who are gay, lesbian or bisexual. Our University promotes diversity, which means tolerance and recognition of every lifestyle, culture, and ethnicity. Are the Young Conservatives exempt from this tolerance?   Jennifer Dulin Class of 2005
