So, I’m not gay as far as I know, but this scholarship offer got me wondering: how do the scholarship donors go about ethically proving that probable recipients really are gay/lesbian?
I’m asking because it sounds to me like this scholarship is asking to be abused by straights who can write a passable “the day I came out” essay, then go about their business. Some people have no shame, you know.
Do you think they require a picture of you in black leather?
