Title

Opinion "'Dead Editors' should come see what 'sissies' they're talking about"

Description

This opinion piece, written by University of Richmond senior and male cheerleader Matthew O’Brian, responds to an opinion piece parodying a Webster’s Dictionary titled “The Official University of Richmond Dictionary/Thesaurus Encyclopedia and Souvenir Placemat” by students of the “Dead Editors’ Society” (Mr. Scott Shepard, Mr. Jeff Carl and Mr. Paul Caputo). In their piece published on February 16, 1995, they refer to male cheerleaders as “sissy boys.” O’Brian invites the “Dead Editors’ Society” to rescind their “insulting remark from [last week’s] Collegian,” and to attend any of their “’sissy boy’” workouts.
