Chimes covers Calvin Conv on “LTBT+”

http://www.calvin.edu/chimes/2017/03/03/lgbt-teach-in-mixed-reactions/

First-year student Carmela Sleva went into the Wolterstorff/Tuininga debate with admittedly low expectations:

“As a queer person, you don’t get too excited when you hear that two [cisgendered, heterosexual], privileged men are going to be debating over something that personally affects your life but doesn’t affects theirs.”

Sleva was also frustrated by the way the conversation was framed. “Bi/pansexual and asexual persons are not even considered and thus completely excluded and erased. … What my community is seeing is not a civil debate over a controversial issue, but erasure and silencing, which is driving LGBTQ+ persons away from the faith.”
