Welcome pbtn! Glad you have you here!
I'm going to dive right in and try to actually respond to you question...
Although there are probably a lot of forum members and other who would strongly disagree with me, I have to back you on this one!
I definately understand what you are pointing out here and I agree with you. Although these colleges that the are being visited have AWFUL policies that discriminate against GLBT people, I do think that it is wrong that you would approach a private school in that way. I agree with the ER, I just don't completely agree with the way some things are being dealt with. I think that they have EVERY right to visit the military schools and feel strongly that they should. I also think that they have absolutely every right to visit ANY public organization and challenge/communicate/etc. with them. Just not private.
...and to anyone that want's me to explain why I back that opinion, I can. If anyone wants to explain what I'm not understanding, I'm listening.
Otherwise, I'm with pbtn on this.
