Letter to the Editor

I wanted to share some thoughts I had in response to Tyler Fredericks’ November 12th column, “Safe words and violent spaces.” His column makes it clear that the “safe space” movement on campus ironically has made campus unsafe for the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority to conduct its philanthropy, unsafe for Brian Grasso (who refused to read “Fun Home”) to maintain his religious principles and unsafe for the Chronicle’s Editorial Page Editor Jonathan Zhao to express his political beliefs.

I am responding to your 16 Sept. editorial entitled "Legacy admissions: something given for little returned." In your article, you state, among other ridiculous untruths, that "those that believe legacy students bring a coherent or uniquely beneficial background to Duke are deluding themselves." In other words, you believe that legacy students do not belong at Duke.

In response to The Chronicle's story on some Duke students objecting to reading Fun Home for religious reasons, I would recommend that those students take themselves and their summer reading assignment a little less seriously.
