    Use of “Sissies” Banned at Yale

    Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

    Virginia Tech Banning Movie Shoots Using Fake Guns

    Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

    A student filmmaker at Virginia Tech reports that the campus won’t allow fake weapons to be used in movies being shot for classes there–”because they might be misperceived by passersby.” The student also says that anyone on campus who produces content thought of as “alarming” is likely to wind up in the Dean’s office. The [...]
