Virginia AG Wants Anti-Discrimination Policies Removed
"It is my advice that the law and public policy of the Commonwealth of Virginia prohibit a college or university from including 'sexual orientation,' 'gender identity,' 'gender expression,' or like classification as a protected class within its non-discrimination policy absent specific authorization from the General Assembly."
Carl Pucci, student body president at Old Dominion University in Norfolk Virginia, had this rational reaction to Cuccinelli's letter:
"It's going to be a mess. There's no doubt about that. Our generation is really open-minded. The concept of discrimination, we're just not interested in that ... I think you're going to see the whole gamut, from angry letters to protests."
