A campaign to tackle prejudice against bi- and pansexual students was this week launched by LGBTQSoc and OUSU’s LGBTQ campaign. OUSU’s “Bye Bi Prejudice” campaign aims to “provide a platform for students of non-monosexual identities to dispel stereotypes about them.” Alice Nutting, Bi/Pan rep at LGBTQSoc, explained, “Bye Bi Prejudice is about breaking down common myths and stigma surrounding bi/pan people and talking about what our identities mean to us. Many non monosexual folks have experienced biphobia both in queer communities and in wider society. We want the campaign to be a creative, visually striking and empowering way of standing up to that.”OUSU LGBTQ rep Adam Ward added, “Given the stereotyping which non-monosexual people face, it’s so important that we work together to say Bye Bi Prejudice.”The campaign’s project asks bi- and pansexual students to share their experiences through messages and creative art about the prejudice they face and what they value about their identity. The testimonies and art received will be shared on their Facebook page and distributed throughout Oxford next week.One student told Cherwell, “It can be difficult being bisexual— people make inaccurate assumptions from your current behaviour about your sexuality. If you’re seen kissing a person of a different gender in a queer space you can automatically be seen as straight, people often don’t consider that you might be bisexual.“If you introduce someone of the same gender to your friends or family, they might think you’ve finally ‘decided’. There’s an urge to put people into the gay/straight binary that means non-monosexual people are often ascribed the wrong identity, which can be very uncomfortable. It would be great if people could learn to be more open-minded.”Balliol’s Daisy Porter agreed, telling Cherwell, “Bi/pan people’s identities are often dismissed as a ‘phase’ or as a stepping stone to coming out as gay, which is incredibly frustrating. Bisexual and pansexual erasure is a very real issue and I hope that the campaign can go some way to challenging this within the university by giving non-monosexual people a platform to speak about their identities.”OUSU VP for Women Anna Bradshaw hailed the campaign as a step forward, commenting, “I am supporting Bye Bi Prejudice because bi/pan-invisibility and bi/pan-phobia are particularly acutely felt by bi and pan women within Oxford University and across society. The campaign states clearly that this is unacceptable, and it particularly chimes with work that I am doing to combat sexual violence — estimates put the proportion of bisexual women who experience serious sexual violence above 75 per cent. “I’m also supporting the campaign in a personal capacity, and look forward to ex- pressing what my bi identity means to me as a part of the campaign.”Last month, the LGBTQ Campaign helped secure a new University policy ensuring that students and staff can choose the gender-neutral pronoun ‘Mx’ on university documents.

Beat writers split on Syracuse’s Sweet 16 matchup with 2nd-ranked DukeBeat writers split on Syracuse’s Sweet 16 matchup with 2nd-ranked Duke
Comments Syracuse (23-13, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) faces off against Duke Friday in Omaha, Nebraska. The Orange is coming off a huge upset win over Michigan State in which its defense held MSU’s shooters to just 25.8 percent shooting from the field and 28 points less than its season scoring an average of 81. The Blue Devils pose another threat in SU’s tourney run, ranked third and eighth in the NCAA in adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency, respectively.Here’s who our beat writers picked for the matchup.Matthew Gutierrez (29-7)Dancing past DukeSyracuse 57, Duke 56Syracuse is playing the best defense in the country right now. Flat out. Holding three-straight high-powered offenses to under 60 points is poetic. The zone has shifted as well as it has in recent years, junior point guard Frank Howard said following the win over Michigan State. Howard, a key cog in the offense, wasn’t himself all week because he was coming off strep throat. Still, SU won three in a row. Howard and the Orange will be rested up for a rematch against the upset-prone Blue Devils, whose losses include fledgling teams in St. John’s and Boston College.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSam Fortier (25-11)OmahahahaSyracuse 59, Duke 57The last time these two teams played, Duke missed its first 15 3-pointers and still beat Syracuse by 16 points. Sure, that game was at Cameron Indoor Stadium, but the disparity on the floor was apparent. The Blue Devils have size, length and a zone so good Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim joked Duke shouldn’t be allowed to play it.The difference for the Blue Devils, in addition to Grayson Allen and Trevon Duval in the backcourt, is their two premier talents down-low in Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter. The Orange had no answer for them then and it’s unlikely things have changed in the last month. There is no logical reason for Syracuse to win this game, which is exactly why Syracuse will win this game.Tomer Langer (24-12)The student becomes the masterDuke 63, Syracuse 55I’ve picked Syracuse to lose its last two games, so if you’re rooting for the Orange to win and you’re upset with my pick, you shouldn’t be. Let’s just start with that. The Orange hasn’t gotten the same slew of upsets on its side of the bracket like it did two years ago, so these games have become increasingly more difficult. Each of the three previous teams had some issues facing a zone that it hadn’t seen before.I won’t argue Matthew’s point that the zone is playing as well as it has, but some of it has to do with its opponents’ unfamiliarity — TCU didn’t attempt a 3-pointer for an eight-minute stretch in the first half, oftentimes pump-faking open looks. Still, I do actually think the zone will be rather effective, like it was the last time these two teams met (although I don’t expect Duke to miss 15 3s in a row). I think the Orange’s issues on the offensive end, which have been mitigated by the unreal defense, will finally catch up against Krzyzewski’s version of the zone.
