Law Professor Gets Death Threats Over Pink Locker Room Buzuvis Says She'll Raise Issue Tuesday
POSTED: 6:06 pm CDT September 24, 2005 UPDATED: 5:34 am CDT September 26, 2005
DES MOINES, Iowa -- University of Iowa President David Skorton said threats sent to a law professor who objects to the pink visitors' locker rooms at Kinnick Stadium won't be tolerated.
Erin Buzuvis said she has received death threats for saying the color scheme promotes sexism and homophobia.
Skorton said "it is deeply offensive and completely unacceptable" that a public discussion about the locker rooms has been degraded by threats of violence. He has asked the Office of the General Counsel, the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity, and the Department of Public Safety to review the threats and to take appropriate actions.
The pink locker room goes back to the days of former Iowa coach Hayden Fry, and has been expanded in the current renovation of the stadium -- including the carpeting, metal lockers, brick walls, sinks, shower floor -- even the urinals.
Buzuvis said she will raise the issue on Tuesday when a committee seeks public comment on a report it recently compiled on the university's compliance with NCAA regulations.
Wrist bending...."She is just so dead."
What would they have done if they decided to paint everything BLACK?...............
If the death threats were manufactured by her, I wouldn't be surprised in the least.
Intercourse her and the horse she rode in on.
i see a red door and i want it painted black...
My feelings exactly. And it wouldn't be the first time a college professor has 'manufactured' these types of claims...
I googled the idiot academic last week, and she's a classic college commie, with no connection to reality. I don't think she deserves death threats for being an outspoken moron, but it's always funny to see her type act "shocked shocked" when there's pushback.
Just imagine. Black floor, black walls, black ceiling, black lockers, black tile showers, black toilets and sinks. The visitors would get poor eyesight trying to find their stuff!..........
Death threats are wrong, but so is she.
What have you got against horses?.,..........nevermind, I don't wanna know........
It's funny, though, I see fags driving around all the time with those pink triangles as bumper stickers and such. Wasn't that what Hitler made them wear under his Reich? They're all silly and uninformed people.
black on black, sounds like he inside of the main ride of "Disaster area". nobody could find the controls!
What are the odds that she made up these threats herself?
They'd havta feel their way around the locker room............heh heh.....
or crash into a supernova...
gotta be careful around those BLACK HOLES............
oh I WON'T go there(LOL)!
any hitchhikkers guide fans out there remember "disaster Area"?
I'm missing something here.
