Bullying leads to a rise in students contemplating suicide BY SARA CORWIN Intern

In the last few months, the suicides of students who have been bullied in school for identifying themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender have made news headlines nationwide. However, at UNT, members of the LGBT community feel more accepted. “Honestly, 100 percent tell-all truth, I feel safer on campus with my sexuality than any other place, other than my home, than any other schools I’ve been in,” said Laura Barron, an advertising

sophomore and a member of UNT GLAD. Deputy chief of police Ed Rey nolds said incidences of bullying are not usually reported. “We do get calls for harassment, and a lot of harassment cases are former boyfriend-girlfriend, or you know, things like that,” Reynolds said. “But it’s not necessarily where someone calls us, says ‘you know this guy or girl is picking on me.’” He explained that bullying is a vague term that encompasses more than one offense or act toward a person. Bullying can

be harassment, stalking, hate crimes or assault, depending on what is done to an individual. “You know if you go over and you push someone down, and you’re bullying them around like that, well we’re not going to take a report for bullying, we are probably going to arrest you for assault,” Reynolds said. There have been no incidents of hate crimes in the last three years, according to the Clery Report provided by the UNT Police Department, but there have been 12 reports of harassment within the last year. Ten to 12 reports a year is the

typical amount, said Maureen McGuinness, assistant vice president for student development. She also said there have been 25 people who have been referred to the CARE team, which specializes in preventing suicide by catching the red flags a student may exhibit when they are distressed enough to contemplate suicide. Last year, 55 cases were referred. “It concerns me that our students are struggling so much with many different things in college,” McGuinness said. “A lot of it sometimes is depression. Our numbers are signifi-

SGA rolls out Karts for Cancer BY ISAAC WRIGHT Staff Writer

The golf carts driving around campus aren’t only filled with universit y staff this week as members of the Student Government Association chauffeur students from building to building. Karts for Cancer, the SGA’s first solo philanthropy project, began this week. Every day from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., SGA senators set up a table on the campus green near the University Union where they charge students $1 for a ride anywhere on campus. All the proceeds from the project will go to the Cook Children’s Hospital. “It’s for a good cause,” said Devin Axtman, senator for the College of Arts and Sciences. “Sick kids are one of those things that a lot of people think about and go ‘Well, what can I do?’ We’re giving them an opportunity to make a difference.” The project is the result of a collaborative effort by Whitley Poyser, senator for the College of Business, and Joel Arredondo, SGA Student Senate speaker. The idea started when the SGA was in summer session and Arredondo mistook someone’s suggestion of a project titled Cards for Cancer. The SGA began work on Karts for Cancer instead. “There’s been a good turnout without any publicizing or anything like that,” Arredondo said. Monday was the first day the SGA members drove the carts around campus, and student reception was much better than

cantly higher this year, and that concerns me.” McGuinness and Gilda Garcia, the vice president for equity and diversity, are working on creating a taskforce that would provide services specifically for the LGBT community and make the students feel more comfortable on campus. She explained that several students have attempted suicide this semester. The “It Gets Better Project” was launched last month to provide youth of the LGBT community with support in hopes of preventing suicides.

expected, Arredondo said. The project earned more than $200 Monday. Some students have opted to donate money. “It’s one of the greatest gimmicks I’ve seen for donating money,” said Cody Walsh, a mechanical engineering sophomore. “It’s great because it’s a whole week of donations. I plan to do it every day.” Right now, the project is in its infancy, but the SGA plans to make it a regular event during special times of the year, such as Homecoming. Some SGA

members are thinking of ways it could be improved the next time they’re behind the wheel of a golf cart. “Right now we only have three carts, but if we could get two or three more, we could set up more booths and that would make it a lot better,” said Ryan Cho, Texas Academy of Math and Science senator. The SGA is the student-led governmental body at UNT. The 19th and 20th of this month were planned in advance to be the dates for the organization’s

Meet Your Senator event on the campus green. The organization chose to have Karts for Cancer the same week. Senators hope this will help them reach more of the students on campus. “I think it’s a good way to do it,” said Richard Ward, senator for the College of Visual Arts and Design. “People want a ride, and therefore they’re kind of forced to interact with their senator versus looking the other way as they walk by the table.”

Students wear purple to remember victims BY M ARLENE GONZALEZ

Juniors Shannon Hill and Sara Florez enjoy a ride around campus with SGA speaker Joel Arredondo to promote “Karts for Cancer.” This week, a $1 donation benefits Cook Children’s Hospital while getting students a ride to class or their cars.

The campaign wants to show the youth through video contributions worldwide that “happiness can be a reality of the future,” according to the website. Nine out of 10 LGBT students have experienced harassment at school, and more than a third of LGBT kids have attempted to commit suicide, according to the project’s website. National statistics of bullying show that it decreases with each grade level, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

Today, students will don purple shirts to remember the people who committed suicide after being bullied about their sexual orientation. Br it t a ny McM i l l ia n, a 16-year-old Canadian girl, organized the movement for Spirit Day for people to wear purple to remember the lives of Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase and Billy Lucas. They committed suicide within the same two-week period after they were bullied about their sexual preference. “I felt really sorry for the families and for the boys because I know what it feels like to be suicidal and feel like there’s no hope,” McMillian said in an e-mail interview. “I know what it’s like to want to die, I’m just sad that these boys and girls didn’t have someone, anyone to turn to.” Past experiences helped her understand and relate to what the boys dealt with, and she said she was upset they turned to death. “I thought a lot about it and I just don’t understand people,” she said. “I mean, how can you bully someone until they actually have to kill themselves to escape? And to the bystanders: how could they just sit back and let this happen? It’s disgusting.” To determine what day to remember the victims of bullying, she said she averaged the dates of the six deaths to come up with the 20th. The purple color symbolizes

the spirit lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning flag. Diedrick Brackens, president of UNT GLAD and a fibers junior, said he heard about the event through Facebook and was immediately drawn to it. He said he was upset and disappointed that the bullying victims had resorted to suicide. “It was really depressing just to know that all these kids are dying,” he said. “I mean, it happens all the time. It’s just now getting all this publicity because of the way it’s happening.” Brackens said he will attend two events related to the cause and will pass out purple ribbons outside of the University Union. Tiffany Thomas, a hospitality management junior, said she didn’t know about Spirit Day, but knew about the bullying victims. Every person should be able to be who they are without being judged or bullied, she said. “I don’t think it’s right,” Thomas said. “To each its own. Each person has their own cup of tea.” On Tuesday afternoon, UNT President V. Lane Rawlins sent an e-mail to students encouraging them to wear purple. “This is a time to recommit ourselves to being a campus community that is inclusive of all people, regardless of their differences, including those of sexual orientation and gender identity and/or expression,” he said in the e-mail.

President Rawlins personally answers students’ questions BY SHANNON MOFFATT Staff Writer

Students addressed their concerns about how tuition money is spent, advances in Tier One research and changes in sustainable energy Tuesday with UNT President V. Lane Rawlins. The Really, Let’s Talk forum allowed students to ask the president questions face-to-face. “It’s a great opportunity to express opinions, to ask questions, to hear what’s going directly from the top,” said Laurea Dunahoe, the special events coordinator for Rawlins. One student asked about improving sustainable energy resources for the school. Rawlins said he’s interested in cost-effective ways to bring wind and solarpowered energy resources to the university. “We are looking into it,” he said. “The wind blows here, I noticed, and we need to take advantage of it.” St udent Gover n ment Association President Kevin

Sanders was present along with university department heads to help answer questions. Sanders said students at the event asked a lot of good questions. “Students are really knowledgeable about what’s going on,” Sanders said. “They’re not asking blind questions. They’ve done their research and are armed to ask questions.” Many students walked in and out of the forum as they passed by. Sanders said there were about 15 to 20 students in attendance in the Bruce Hall lobby from 1 to 2 p.m. “I wish we could have had this whole room filled,” he said. “At any other university you’re probably not going to see the president come out and be amongst the students.” Warren Burggren, provost and vice president for academic affairs, assisted the president in answering on topics like UNT’s study abroad program and energy practices.

One student asked if the school would consider changing its zerotolerance policy on drugs. Elizabeth With, the vice president for student affairs, said she has worked at UNT for 14 years and the university has always had a zero-tolerance drug policy. She said the university might consider it if they had enough reason to. Last year, about 50 to 70 people attended the last event held at Discovery Park. One of the past hot issues was parking, but it was not mentioned this time, Dunahoe said. “There is not a day that goes by where you’re not asking questions like ‘Why is this going on?’ or ‘Why are they doing that?’ and this is your time to do it,” Sanders said. Ted Minette, a theatre senior, said he liked one student’s question about the benefits of the new football stadium. “There’s a lot of concern with that and he made a reasonable point,” Minette said. “It’s a tough pill to swallow.”

UNT President V. Lane Rawlins gives students an opportunity to ask questions and interact with him in a casual setting during the open forum Really, Let’s Talk on Tuesday in the Bruce Hall lobby. The next session will be from 2-3 p.m. today at the student lounge in Discovery Park. Dunahoe said the best part is when results happen and understanding is gained. “If there’s misconceptions about things or things that the president is not aware of and

understanding is gained on either end, then that’s a win-win,” she said. For questions he couldn’t answer, Rawlins asked students to provide their e-mail address

so they could be contacted with an answer. Another Really, Let’s Talk forum will take place at 2 p.m. today in the Discovery Park student lounge.

Student Health and Wellness Center offers free flu shots BY LORYN THOMPSON Intern

Students are offered free food, free T-shirts and free entertainment every semester, but this year the Student Health and Wellness Center has something different to offer: free flu shots. The center has an annual flu shot clinic to get vaccinations to students at a discounted price, but this year the center was able to use revenue from a previous fundraiser to supply the shots to the students at no cost. “We’re very pleased with the turnout so far,” said Kerry Stanhope, supervisor of administrative outreach. The clinic began Oct. 4, and by the end of the second week, 694 students had been vaccinated, an increase from 300 to 500 students for the whole clinic in previous years, Stanhope said. Last fall, the center raised $ 3,845 to purchase H1N1 vaccines for students, said Reginald Bond, the executive director of the center, a measure that became unnecessary when the government supplied the vaccines.

Bond said the money raised for the H1N1 vaccine was matched by the center to be able to provide vaccines to 1,100 people. “If we truly are advocates of public health, I thought it was a logical direction that we should be moving in,” Bond said. “We’ve turned it completely around and made it more convenient for students, faculty and staff to get their flu shots.” The flu shot clinic opened to faculty and staff Oct. 18 and will continue while supplies last — probably for another week, Stanhope said. The clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 8:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. on the second floor of Chestnut Hall. Mandie Melms, a pre-biology sophomore, said she didn’t know the flu shots were being offered, PHOTO BY TARYN WALKER/INTERN but she probably wouldn’t take Flu shots are free for all students and $7 for faculty and staff.

Centers offer resources for helping depressed students Continued from Page 1 Faiza Jamil, a pre-med and biochemistry freshman, said she did not see bullying as a major issue at UNT. “I haven’t even seen anyone get bullied,” she said. “… A lot of people have their own community.” Several GLAD students agree. Alex Miller, an international studies sophomore, explained

what he went through while being bullied in high school, leading him to think about suicide. “You just feel utterly worthless,” Miller said. “That you’ll never be accepted, and you’ll just be — never good enough for anybody. And just that feeling of utter worthlessness, feeling that you’re just not good enough for this world — it’s enough to take anyone out.” Being different can amplify

the effects of bullying, Miller added. Several organizations, clubs and services on campus offer resources, online screenings and hotlines for anyone experiencing a crisis. Students who are seeking support within the LGBT community can reach UNT Allies, GLAD and Transgender Denton. For any issues regarding bullying, students can contact

Man stabbed on Mulberry Street Brief BY TAYLOR JACKSON Staff Writer

On Saturday, the Denton police were called to the 600 block of Mu lberr y St reet, w here a d r i ver st a bbe d a ma n during a n a ltercation, according to a police report. The man, who asked not to be identified, and his friend were celebrating his birthday

when a car sped by. Their kids were playing near the street, he said, so the men went to confront the car and tell the driver to slow down when the man and driver got into a fight. The driver and passenger got out of the car, and the driver charged at the man with a knife, according to the police report. The man fought and tackled the driver who stabbed him. The man said he didn’t

even realize he was stabbed. He just felt a warm feeling, he sa id. T he d r iver a nd passenger left after the altercation but were caught by police later. The driver was taken to the hospital and then jail, and the passenger said he had been drinking beforehand.

The Care Team, Health and Wellness Center, Substance Abuse Resource Center, Multicultural Center and the Veterans Center are other resources provided to students for any kind of issue. The Counseling Center provides eight counseling sessions a year for students, which are paid through their fees. The

Psychology Clinic has several different specialists on hand for different areas of counseling. The Counseling Center also lists emergency and non-emergency hotlines on its website to provide 24-hour services in the Denton, Fort Worth and Dallas areas. Sarah Forsyth, a psychology junior, agrees that the services provided at UNT are helpful. “I sought out counseling

for depression here at school, and it really it helped to talk to someone,” Forsyth said. She has also found support through GLAD, she said. Today, GLAD students will observe a Day of Remembrance for the students who have captured the news headlines with their experience of being bullied, as well as anyone who has ever been hurt by bullying or has committed suicide.

Students to decorate T-shirts to raise abuse awareness Project speaks out against abuse BY CHRISTINA MLYNSKI Senior Staff Writer

W hen Kelsey Fr y man, a history sophomore, found out her best friend was a victim of domestic violence, she said she felt hopeless. The Clothesline Project, which allows students to speak out against domestic violence, was the outlet Fryman had been searching for. “Her boyfriend at the time was not a good person and when I heard what he was doing, I felt like I couldn’t be that person she turned to,” she said. “The Clothesline Project gave me the chance to help her, even though she wasn’t there to see it.”

Taking a Stand From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at Discovery Park, students can decorate T-shirts to raise awareness of domestic violence. “It’s your message that you can send out and help someone else who’s in the same situation,” said Cara Walker, student services coordinator for the Multicultural Center. Each year, more than 1 million women and 835,000 men in the U.S. are physically assaulted by an intimate partner, according

Hang It Out to Dry T-shirts have been used for the past two years because they grab people’s attention better, Walker said. “Most women are associated with housework things,” Fryman said. “It’s like airing your dirty laundry for everyone to see.” The Clot hesline Project will provide the shirts and art supplies. Students are not allowed to take their shirts because they will be put on display, Walker said. Different colored shirts represent different topics of domestic violence. For example, black represents those attacked for political reasons, she said. Informat ion packets on domestic violence and organizations will be available, Walker said.

Baby Talk: This ain’t a scene, it’s a lost season Opinion B y B en B aBy

Senior Staff Writer Coming into the month of October, there was a large amount of optimism surrounding the UNT football team. The Mean Green was coming off a huge road win against Florida Atlantic, the only win of the season so far. There was a good chance that UNT could win its four games in the month, potentially entering November with a record of 5-3. Instead, the Mean Green suffered three straight demoralizing losses and will face a tough stretch coming up (yes, Western Kentucky may end up being a challenge). For that reason, this season can be most aptly associated with a sub-par band: Fall Out Boy. ‘Sugar, We’re Going Down’ Sugar probably isn’t the best ingredient to use in this extended metaphor, but the phrase is fitting. The month started off with a crushing one-point loss to Louisiana-Lafayette. UNT was playing in honor of Josh Rake, the freshman wide receiver who was killed in an automobile accident the day before the game. The Mean Green desperately needed a win for so many reasons. After a 91-yard drive that put UNT within one point of the Ragin’ Cajuns, the extra point by sophomore place kicker Trent Deans was blocked, crushing

UNT is now 1-6 this season. the spirits of fans and players. It would later be said that sophomore redshirt quarterback Riley Dodge broke his left wrist. From that point on, the season has quickly spiraled

downward, like a wagon down a steep hill. Over the course of the month, attendance has dwindled along with the competiveness of the games. After another narrow

defeat at the hands of Arkansas State, the Mean Green was completely outmatched by Florida Atlantic. ‘Thanks for the Memories’

I might have actually decided to spell it correctly, but the song accurately describes the coaching situation in Denton. Head coach Todd Dodge needed at least a 6-6 season to keep

his hopes of staying at UNT alive. However, with Troy and Middle Tennessee coming up in November, it’s very likely that the Mean Green will lose one of those two games. It’s just a hunch. T he genera l consensus around here seems to be that Dodge will join Fouts Field and no longer be a part of UNT at the end of the year. Dodge was stuck in a difficult spot when starter after starter was lost for the season because of injuries. With five games left in the year, speculation about a new head coach is swirling through the fall winds. But before the switch occurs, it’s possible that five more losses will be chalked up to Dodge, who will have the worst winning percentage of any coach in Mean Green history. Rest assured; don’t think that this team will give up on the season. But it is going to take a significant effort to pick up the shattered remains of the 2010 season.

Doubleheader concludes UNT softball’s fall season Mean Green to take on UT-Dallas in both games B y BoBBy Lewis Staff Writer

The Mean Green softball team will wrap up its fall season today against UT-Dallas for a doubleheader. Today will be the last chance

The team’s four pitchers — freshman Lauren Poole, redshirt freshman Ashley Kirk, sophomore Brittany Simmons and senior Mallory Cantler — will all pitch about four innings apiece. Each pitcher has gotten at least one start this fall. “I’d like for the whole team to just set a tone and go out with a bang,� Simmons said. Si m mon s w i l l pitch i n the back half of the double-

Midfielder ‘quarterbacks’ Mean Green attack BY SEAN GORMAN Senior Staff Writer

When UNT soccer legend Kendall Juett graduated last May, sophomore Ellen Scarfone knew there would be a huge hole to fill in the midfield. After all, replacing a player ranked in the top 10 in five offensive categories while setting a record for most starts at 96 is never easy. Instead of trying to become the next Juett, the team’s new starting midfielder has focused on playing to her own strengths. “In a way I feel like her but there are still differences in our styles of play,” Scarfone said. “She has been hard to replace because she was a great player but I’m not trying to be her.”

Passion for passing Staying dedicated to her true role as a passer, the second-year maestro of the midfield leads the Mean Green with 19 points off five goals and nine assists. “Even when we played together she showed potential to become a great player,” Juett said about Scarfone. “If she can continue to work hard, she’ll go as far as she wants to. I was confident that our offense would continue to produce this season after playing with her for a year.” In a day and age where personal accolades occasionally come before team triumphs, Scarfone is the quintessential team player, preferring to set her teammates up rather than score herself. “I try to do as much as I can to score when the chance presents itself, but my thing is assists,” she said. “Just like the quarterback, I would rather pass to my teammates and set them up for a score.” UNT has seen no dropoff in scoring since losing Juett thanks to the play of Scarfone and the other midfielders, as the team leads the Sun Belt with 45 goals and ranks second with a 11-5-1, 6-2-0 record. A confident but realistic player, Scarfone doesn’t shy away from admitting her weaknesses on the field. “Playing midfield is my thing and the offense skills I possess make up for my weaknesses on defense,” she said. “Defending is certainly not one of my strengths.”

Life before UNT The daughter of Benny and

Debora h Scarfone has enjoyed soccer all her life, starting at age 3 when she broke the rules just to get KENDALL the chance to JUETT play. “I started playing soccer when I was 3 years old, which wasn’t legal because you had to be 4,” Scarfone said while laughing. “Thankfully, my dad was the coach, so he started me with his teams a little early.” Scarfone’s playing career before coming to UNT has been important to her success since joining the Mean Green.

Building relationships Playing for the ’91 Dallas Sting Club Soccer team, ranked No. 14 in the nation, allowed Scarfone to learn what it was like to handle pressure early on. “Competing for club teams while I was in high school was so important. I wouldn’t be the player I am now without that experience,” Scarfone said. The 5-foot-7 Mesquite native met current teammates sophomore midfielder Carly McDowell, sophomore goalkeeper Haley Newsome and sophomore defender Danielle Guilliod, while on the team. “When I brought her to the team I didn’t know much about her because she had played for so many different clubs, but Ellen had an immediate impact on our team,” Sting head coach Kenneth Medina said. “Her overall individual skills, insight and creativity are uncommon. Not many female players are as talented as her.” Scarfone’s teammates on Sting aren’t the only UNT players she met before bringing her talents to Denton. The Mesquite Poteet High School graduate shared her high school career on the field with sophomore forward Michelle Young while playing for the Pirates. “The chemistry on this team is so strong because a lot of us have known each other for a few years,” Young said. “ I think that is one of the reasons the offense has clicked so much this season.” There is a subdued selfassuredness about Scarfone as she reflects on why she chose to join UNT two years ago.

Sophomore midfielder Ellen Scarfone jumps to block a kick from an FAU player in Sunday’s 5-0 win. Scarfone leads the team with nine assists this season.

“I try to do as much as I can to score when the chance presents itself, but my thing is assists.”

—Ellen Scarfone Sophomore midfielder

2009 All-Sun Belt Tournament team member said after meeting Hedlund, the decision wasn’t a difficult one. “Typically, when you make that kind of decision it has to do with the overall program, but John was the reason I joined,” Scarfone said. “He’s hard at times and fun at times, which makes him fun to play for. I didn’t exactly want to say no to a full-ride offer either.”

Grades and goals Scarfone’s very little free time off the field is spent in a classroom or library, as grades are important to the studious 19-year-old who remains undecided on her major. “School and soccer are my life right now,” she said. “I do everything I can to keep my GPA up for myself and for the team’s academic goal.”

In the rare case that Scarfone gets a bit of free time, she enjoys watching soccer, as long as it’s not people like herself playing. “I can’t watch women’s soccer. Sure, I play it, but I’d much rather watch guys compete,” she said. “It’s a lot faster and everything is more fun to watch when men play.” With two seniors on the team, UNT is young, but that isn’t stopping Scarfone from setting the bar high this season. “Our team has given so much effort this year and everyone on this team thinks we can win a ring now,” she said. “We’re doing whatever we can to win conference. That’s the goal.” Scarfone and the Mean Green will continue to work toward that goal when they travel to The University of Arkansas-Little Rock to face the Trojans at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Gorman’s Grumbles: Plenty of positives in UNT athletics Opinion BY SEAN GORMAN Senior Staff Writer

Nothing spoke more volumes about the frustration toward UNT football than this weekend’s Homecoming loss, where there were more doubts about the team than fans in the stands by game’s end. A one-sided defeat to Florida International on a day that was supposed to be a celebration for the university is the latest part of an injury-plagued season that has left so many people unhappy. Although I could spend time debating Todd Dodge’s job status or fretting about 17 injuries during the course of a mere seven games, I’d rather expose one of UNT’s greatest secrets. Hidden behind the failures of football are some teams that are actually pretty good. Not good as in maybe getting a winning season, but good as in having the potential to win a few Sun Belt titles very soon. Let’s take a moment to step away from the imminent train wreck that is the football team and open our eyes to teams that should garner more attention.

Soccer Covering this team has been an absolute pleasure. With two seniors, the squad is young, but it is second in the Sun Belt and leads the league in almost every major scoring category. It’s hard to think this year is any kind of fluke when UNT soccer has secured a winning season 16 years in a row. Even more impressive is the fact that this 16-year streak encompasses the team’s entire 16-year history. It has never had a losing season. As fun as it is to watch head coach John Hedlund yell and gyrate on the sidelines, he should be known first for his skills as a leader and strategist. Hedlund is in total control of a program that will only improve on its No. 7 regional ranking and knows exactly what it takes to win. If you want to watch a UNT team win, make the trip to the soccer field on Fridays and Sundays and watch the likes of Kelsey Hodges, Ellen Scarfone and Michelle Young score goal after goal against top competition.

Tennis Another example of a strongwilled coach who knows how to

Sean Gorman win is seen here. Like Hedlund, Sujay Lama is an interesting personality who simply knows how to elevate the program to a new level. After advancing to the NCAA Tournament last year, the team’s expectations are extremely high. With Madura Ranganathan and Irina Paraschiv returning after strong seasons and transfer Nadia Lee sure to make an impact, a top 50 national ranking isn’t out of the question for Mean Green tennis.

Basketball Arguably the best coach at UNT, a team fresh off a conference title and a roster that only lost two key players mean only good things can come in 2011 for UNT basketball.

With the talent and leadership on this experienced team, anything short of a return trip to the NCAA tournament would be a major disappointment. Josh White, Tristan Thompson and George Odufuwa are three seniors who now have done it all and will help the Mean Green run over Sun Belt competition all season. This year’s team may actually be better than last year. Dominique Johnson and Kedrick Hogans would have played a huge role last season if they had been healthy, but now they’re back. Combine that with the maturity of UNT’s younger players and the addition of Nebraska transfer Alonzo Edwards and you have a team to be excited about. I will be sure to write a column talking more in depth about why I love this team’s chances in 2011 very soon, but just know for now that it is for real. Sure, the football team has failed to meet expectations because of injuries and sheer bad luck. That’s no reason to get down on UNT sports, though. It would be better for students to open their eyes and focus on all the positives created by the athletics department over the past couple years.

School suicides a political issue

Pentagon refuses to take sides Editorial

On Tuesday, the Pentagon advised recruiters that they can accept openly gay and lesbian candidates because of the recent court decision outlawing the military from expelling gay service members. However, gay and lesbian groups have advised against informing the military of their sexual preference because the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy is still being appealed in the courts an+ a reversal of the court decision might occur. Despite appearing to be acting appropriately to end the program, the Editorial Board believes the Pentagon is simply clouding its refusal to take a stance. The Pentagon and Congress also need to outlaw the program to help set an example to end discrimination across the nation. Last month, California Federal Judge Virginia Phillips ruled “don’t ask, don’t tell” unconstitutional and issued an injunction ordering the military to stop enforcing the policy. Phillips’ ruling is being appealed by the Supreme Court. In the meantime, the Pentagon has refused to take a side in the issue. This is not final, and the Pentagon may have to reinstate the policy if the courts overturn the decision — its notice reminds recruiters to “manage expectations” of applications by informing them a reversal of the court decision may occur. If the Pentagon releases a statement essentially disregarding “don’t ask, don’t tell,” it needs to adhere to its statement. After a promising change of policy, it is disappointing to see the Pentagon reserving the right to prosecute openly gay and lesbian recruits, essentially, at its whim. Even further confusing its actual position is the fact that after the statement, the Pentagon later cautioned gay troops against coming out until the matter is settled because it could have “adverse consequences.” However, for the first time in the nation’s history, the military is accepting openly gay recruits. This confusing saga of “don’t ask, don’t tell” is just another part of the ongoing fight against bigotry against gays and lesbians. Between the prejudice in the military and the tragic school-aged suicides cluttering the media, students at UNT are showing their support for the lesbian and gay communities by dawning purple shirts and ribbons today. The support can only do so much — the government and the Pentagon need to uphold Phillips’ ruling. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is a hatred-fueled insensitive program that is unconstitutional and wrong. Once the Pentagon and Congress outlaw the program, discrimination may be potentially lessened throughout the country.

Recently, there has been a large public outcr y over suicide among lesbian and gay teenagers. I never thought I would see something about LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) suicide in People magazine or an episode of “Glee.” This is an opportunity for those activists and people who do care about LGBT teen suicide to state our case and what to do about bullying in schools. There has been an on-t he-g rou nd movement called “Day of Silence” for more than a decade in the community in response to bullying and harassment. To fully tackle the complexity of t he LGBT teen suicide epidemic we have to take into account the factors of gender,

race, location, socioeconomic status and kinship. While 10 percent of youth are estimated to be LGBT, they make up roughly 30 percent of all teen suicides. A 2009 report shows that nine in 10 youths in the community have experienced harassment and two out of three report not feeling safe in school. It’s even worse for lesbian and bisexual women, whose rates are five times that of their straight counterparts. There is a gendered angle to LGBT teen suicide that is not getting talked about in the media. While the death of these young men was tragic, the rate for their female counterparts is considerably higher. Kinship is one of the most important factors. LGBT youth

who come from a rejecting family are up to nine times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. A lso, k inship t ies ca n be complicated for these youth since a lot of parents either kick them out or conditions get to the point where they leave. The average age of this for lesbian, gay, and bisexua l youths is 14 years old while for transgender youths the average age is 13. Studies also show that while these teens make up 40 percent of the homeless youth population, shelters are not always friendly, so they often turn to sex work to get by. When that enters the picture, the HIV rate skyrockets. Take the story of Larry King,

a gay youth who was murdered at his school for his sexual preference. He was in a youth shelter after being removed from his parents, who abused him for his homosexuality. We need to speak out against this inequality wherever and whenever it occurs. These horrible social conditions play a role in LGBT teen suicide. Bullying, family strains and lower socioeconomic status increase the rate of these suicides. Reforms in homelessness shelters, public and private schools, and HIV/AIDS funding are needed to help these youths survive.

From the time I turned 14 I have gone to every Old 97’s show that I was geographically able to attend. On Monday n ig ht, I went to my 13t h concert — a feat that leaves my parents and many of my friends asking “Aren’t you sick of them yet?” What they don’t understand is that seeing a live Old 97’s performance is more than hearing my favorite band play; it’s a sort of family reunion (without the overly touchy great aunt and the offcolored creamed corn). While the band’s fan base has spread over the years, the people who went to their concerts in 1993 continue to come today. They even bring their kids along. It’s impossible to describe the “typical Old 97’s fan” because there

isn’t one. The demographic spans age, gender and backgrounds. The only thing we do have in common is our love for the band. And that’s enough. W hether it’s your first or 40th time seeing them, the moment Rhett Miller, Murry Hammond, Ken Bethea and Philip Peeples step onto the stage, this diverse assortment of people suddenly becomes one cohesive community. Even the band itself is immersed within the “family.” I think the reason why I continue to see them show after show — besides Rhett’s swoopy hair — is because for those two hours I am amongst a group that is completely united by one cause. I cherish the conf lict-free

oasis of an Old 97’s concert — especially with the midterm elections looming and the div ision bet ween polit ica l parties as well as indiv iduals ever increasing. I’m not naïve. I realize that we “can’t just all get along.” But I find it preposterous that issues like increasing the funding for and quality of the nation’s pu bl ic s c ho ol e duc at ion system or repea ling “don’t ask, don’t tell” continue to spark debate. I find it quite depressing that a rock show is the only time I feel unified with the community at large. There is nothing more exhilarating than screaming the lyrics to “Timebomb” w it h a room full of strangers who are just as unin hibited ly euphoric

as myself. I only hope that this act of bringing people together in the support of one cause can be extrapolated, because it’s a lot of fun.
