I first came across this article via Tel-Chai Nation about a gay Boise State University that beat himself with a stick. Tel-Chai also provides a link to BSU's Nasty November with this memorable quote: "I wasn't surprised to hear that an attack occurred, even if it didn't actually occur," said Woody Howard, chairman of Boise State's Bisexuals, Gays, Lesbians and Allies for Diversity (BGLAD) club. "This situation has gotten out of hand, and there is a hostile environment being created for everybody." Other groups, such as Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA), are also involved in the campus conflict. Faked attacks, name calling, antagonistic literature, and administrative study all on one campus!
