And it still doesn’t seem to be helping them hold on to their jobs.
We get that the students are probably disappointed in their scores, but they could always have retaken the test...
The defensive, victim-blaming reactions we have received from Nazi-loving schmucks are abhorrent, but nonetheless offer an informative glimpse into the idiocy of those who would distract themselves from their own inadequacies with the sort of statements that would make Goering blush.

So, are there actually any LGBT students even trying to join organizations that disagree with their lifestyles?
Is it any surprise this occurred at the same university as the swastika?
Apparently, the only reason she acted so unreasonably at the Homecoming parade is that she left home in a hurry that morning. She must have really been running late the day she tried to have a reporter forcibly removed from campus.
