South Carolina Legislators To Punish College For Assigning Gay-Themed 'Fun Home' Comic To Freshmen

fun homeSo that’s where Doctor Frederic Wertham went.

The Associated Press reports that South Carolina is to remove $52,000 from the College of Charleston’s budget. Which, coincidentally, is exactly the same sum the college spent on a program that saw the College of Charleston assign Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel to incoming freshmen last summer

Rep. Garry Smith made the proposal is quoted as explaining “I understand diversity and academic freedom… This is purely promotion of a lifestyle with no academic debate” and its the campus wide requirement he objects to.

The House Ways and Means Committee also defeated by a vote to restore the money to the college. A proposal, pointing out the ludicrousness of the situation, suggested that the South Carolina legislators be responsible for approving every book on every college reading list, was sadly withdrawn…

It’s not the first time Fun Home has come under such scrutiny and outrage. And you know what? Won’t be the last. People are weird.
