Wisconsin dean leaving post; partner benefits cited as partial reason

by Jeremy Hooper

   Openly straight University of Wisonsin-Madison dean of students Luoluo Hong is leaving her post, due in part to Wisconsin state law preventing the university from offering domestic partner benefits. Hong says this concept, which was recently supported by Wisconsin lawmakers, makes it difficult for the school to "recruit and retain employees." (Not to mention the difficulties it can present for the school's gay employees in attempting to "recruit and retain" antibiotics for their loved ones.)

In a curious move, Hong is now heading to Arizona State University West, another school where domestic partner benefits are not allowed. However, we do hear that that school will permit one to take their sweetie a nice cup of chicken soup from the school's cafeteria should they happen to fall ill. That, coupled with Arizona's warmer climate -- who the hell needs benefits?
