In defense of Buddie

Letter to the Editor | Friday, November 21, 2008

After reading the barrage of letters defaming Melissa Buddie (“The hook-up culture,” Nov. 19) in yesterday’s Viewpoint, I felt as though I would offer some words or encouragement.

I – like Melissa – have made out with six guys this semester. I have not received much anticipated phone calls or lunch offers, not even the curious poke on facebook.

And Melissa, if you think your lovely autumn strolls on South Quad are made awkward by your actions, eye contact with my former lovers is beyond awkward on so many levels.

Stay Strong Melissa! (And Easy!)
