Re: Y'all need to pay attention to your own community

I feel like I need to respond. I appreciate Halle’s perspective and Matthew’s apology. Matthew, I’m sorry that my post seemed to fault you. Thank you for your apology, but I agree with Halle that that was a scary time for all of us, and it wouldn’t be too hard to point fingers at me over my time in ...

Re: Y'all need to pay attention to your own community

I can’t speak for every woman in quiz bowl. I certainly can’t speak for the women who have decided quiz bowl is not for them. But I can say that the tone of this thread has made me very very uncomfortable. I think most people would agree that personal grooming is important for many reasons, but stat...
