Graffiti is scrawled on a sidewalk. A door of a student's dorm room is splattered in red with a defamatory message. Publicity flyers are ripped from walls. There are derogatory jokes and name-calling. Threats and realities of physical violence. Harassment. All are prejudicial actions against a minority of the population. At issue is not race, color, religion, gender, age or nationality. At issue is sexual orientation. And because college campuses are microcosms of society, the actions occur at the University of Maine and at universities throughout the country that, by their very nature, are supposedly bastions of free expression and tolerance.
