The core of this, in case you haven’t read the title, is also free speech. I hope you are a proponent of free speech and are aware of the limitations, hard and soft, on free speech at Georgetown. These posters are also designed to show free speech protects these kind of humorous illustrations.

These images are also intended to show how physical image isn’t and shouldn’t be definitive of one’s identity. Obviously, you won’t see President DeGioia and Dr. Olson in drag in the near future, nor will you see Fr. O’Brien in a keffiyah. By your example obviously, though, people still believe image should be a limiting identifier, which it should not be.

It is my opinion as a self-identifying moderate that this isn’t egregious disrespect. It’s humor with a purpose, and I disagree that you, “ThisIsStupid,” claim to represent the “moderate” opinion. I also find it amusing you go with ad-hominems, calling The Voice “piss-poor journalism,” and consider yourself “moderate.”

By that I mean I’m 100% supportive of gay marriage, legislation targeting discrimination, etc. But if you guys say I’m not an ally just because I don’t want to cede a far-out social agenda to gays/trans*/whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-call-yourselves, then I guess I’m not an ally. I’ll go back to voting Republican. Sorry my support for most of your agenda wasn’t enough.

Sincerely,
Moderates

Thomas was working with someone else, who prefers to remain anonymous, and goes by the name Guiliana Cucci. She is genderqueer. These paternalism claims are silly on 2 ground.

1) Gender expression =/= identity….

2) Guiliana is genderqueer, Thomas though a cis man is known to experiment with unconventional expression frequently

These drag portraits have nothing to do with transgender issues, since these are two different things.

The post reads, “spearheaded by Thomas Lloyd (SFS ’15) and Giuliana Cucci (a stage name),” so to translate, it means it was spearheaded by Thomas AND Giuliana. “And” implies two separate people. I’m not sure what you found unclear, but yes, they are two different people.
