Ensler: Seeking fairness on campus

Sophomore Philip Ensler argues that the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy disproportionately affects college age service members, keeping them from reaching true equality.

As college students, the sight of two people making out, couples holding hands and the ever-changing “relationship status” on Facebook are omnipresent. It is a perfectly casual and comfortable aspect of many of our lives.

That is, of course, as long as you are not gay and a member of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, or enlisted in the armed services.
