We demand more diversity and the exclusion of men. "Hollins (University) drops charges against 2 nude protesters - The protesters demanded more diversity, more money for student services, more power for students and for men never to be admitted as undergraduates."

Just for the record, men are already excluded from enrolling as undergraduates at Hollins. Only their graduate program is coed. It does sound kind of hilariously contradictory to demand more diversity as long as that diversity does not include undergrads with penes, though.

Funny, I don't recall any of this type of behavior at Hollins when I was going down the road to visit there about a decade ago. That have made Tinker Day a whole lot more interesting!

Having naked female protestors on campus isn't the way to go about keeping men away. If anything, that makes their school all the more attractive to males. :)

I just found it amusing that they chose the Cocke Memorial Hall to demonstrate.

They've pulled off the unprecedented feat of turning the PC-bashing police against a demonstration of female nudity, though. Pretty impressive.

Mentioned this to a friend of mine, and she said, "10 to 1 whomever donated the money for that Hall changed their names just before making that donation. I bet they pronounce it 'cook'."

Whenever I see a story like this, about women wanting to preserve a women-only school, I wonder why that's supposed to be ok while male-only schools (especially military academies) are not. I think their really is a case to be made for single-gender schools, but these folks aren't making it.

The UGA campus has Butts-Mehre hall, dedicated, ironically, to rememberance of UGA athletics. Now that's funny.
