I guess Logan Crane’s sex column in today’s Tufts Daily means well, but does she give tips that many gay people wouldn’t already know about? Her tone in this column implies that a gay person doesn’t even know how to use a computer, much less find sex tips on a queer blog. And sure, queer people at Tufts are a minority, but are they so marginalized that they can’t even find people to hook up with? Tufts is small, but I didn’t know that there was such a dearth of queer-friendly house parties here. Maybe she assumes that we all just party at frats. Or maybe the LGBT community does think that information about and options for hooking up are few and far between, but who knows, because she didn’t seem to ask any queer people what they thought.
I also love that in throwing a bone to gay people at Tufts, she felt the need to use phrases like “a fabulous queer friend” and “bring out your inner Sasha Fierce.”
