Perennially Wes–bashing (More here. And here. And here.) Manhattan gossip blog Gawker, failing to do any sort of journalistic footwork on its own,* commented on an article in the Hartford Courant about Wesleyan’s (unofficial) sex magazine, Unlocked.
Obligatory copy-pasted excerpt here:
“We note that Wesleyan, the most annoying liberal arts school in the US, has launched a new sex magazine called…wait for it…Unlocked. Uh, unless this is like Wesleyan’s 267th different sex mag, may we just say about time, kids? Despite the fact that almost nothing in all of collegedom could be more tritely predictable than a sex magazine at Wesleyan (pictured: a photo shoot), this news was enough to warrant credulous coverage in the Hartford Courant“
Of course, there’s a variety of anti-wes comments for you to read. My personal favorite comment is one by Mount Prion:
Of course, both articles fail to take into account that nobody really believes Unlocked is “edgy,” but rather, simply falls into the category of “another student magazine that focuses on things students like to do”… in this case, each other.
*Of course, i’m not doing much better by simply posting a link to the blogpost itself. Pot, meet kettle.
