Flagging Yellow at Harvard: Vandal Soaks Library’s Gay Books Collection in Urine

About 40 books “dealing with LGBT issues” have been pulled from the shelves at Harvard University’s Lamont Library. The piss-soaked volumes will most likely have to be destroyed. According to The Harvard Crimson, an empty bottle found near the scene of the crime may have contained urine. Harvard University Police Department is calling the incident “a bias crime.” No word yet about whether they intend to use DNA analysis to identify the perpetrator, or whether surveillance cameras captured any evidence of the incident.

  1. If you read the comments in the Crimson below the article, they’re pretty interesting. Many of them are removed because they’ve been flagged as offensive, but the incident seems to have provoked a somewhat interesting (and somewhat asinine) discussion among Harvard students/Crimson readers.

  2. Yes. I read them, too. Interesting what is there and interesting how much has been removed.

  3. This is disgraceful news.
