The “You Don’t Say” Campaign

untitled

I would just like to applaud Duke’s “You Don’t Say” Campaign for getting it totally right about being sensitive to others. We need more of this.

There’s no reason you should ever refer to something as “gay,” and a campaign called “You Don’t Say” at Duke University is reminding students with a photo campaign.

The project was developed by Think Before You Talk and Blue Devils United, two student organizations at Duke.

In another effort by the groups, they painted a local bridge urging people not to say things like “That’s retarded” or that they were “raped” by something inanimate like a test.
