DEBATE
inued from Page 1
and War," "Fathering: A How-To Course" and
"Males and the Law."
"Men and War' is usually referred to as U.S.
and world history" Ireland countered.
She argued that a department specifically
devoted to women's studies is necessary because
women are often overlooked in more traditional
disciplines. "'Normal' has been taken as male,
and female is the 'other,"' she said.
&e added that the feminist movement does
not seek to rob males of what should rightfully
be theirs to ensure women receive more than
their share.
"We are asking men to relinquish privileges,"
Ireland said. Women are asking for equality,
nothing more, she added.

Title IX, which provides for equal funding in
male and female sports in U.S. schools, has
meant sacrifices for men's sports teams, Baber
said. "It's the price of equality, and I'm willing
to pay it," he added.
Ireland labeled the new administration in
Washington as a distinct threat to women's
rights..
President Bush's decision that that formal
attire for women in the White House be limited
to skirts is trivially troubling, Ireland said.
"Maybe he just likes legs," she quipped.
What matters is the threat the president poten-
tially poses to reproductive freedom, she said.
"There is an imminent threat" she said. "I
don't want to go back to those times where birth
control was not available and abortion was the
leading cause of maternal death."
Baber and Ireland also debated what Ireland

referred to as the danger that lies in popular cul-
ture mediums such as music and pornography.
Ireland said she finds danger in Eminem's
rap, specifically in his portrayal of violent acts
against his wife, sister and mother in his
music.
Ireland expressed concern over the "normal-
ization of that kind of notion," either through
Eminem's lyrics or violent pornographic images.
As for Playboy, she said, "I think there are some
things that are distressing."
"Playboy has never been judged to be obscene
by any court in the land. I don't think it's porno-
graphic," Baber said.
On the question of whether sex workers
should be legal, Baber's response was a simple
affirmative, while Ireland's was more complex.
Sex workers should be allowed the same basic
protections other workers are allowed, such as

"Playboy has never been Judged to be obscene
by any court in the land. I don't think it's
pornographic."
- Asa Baber
Playboy magazine contributing editor

the right to unionize, Ireland said. She also
expressed dismay at a culture that views sex as
something to be bought.
Ireland also called attention to the flaws of a
culture in which women put in disproportionate-
ly higher hours caring for their families than
men. She said that men are thanked for the
hours they do log with their children instead of
being asked to balance the scale and devote
more time to domestic life.

"More and more guys want to be good
fathers'" Baber said. He added that the problem
lies with fathers who are excluded from playing
a larger role in their children's lives because of
divorce settlements and custody arrangements
that allot mothers more time with their off-
spring.
"I'm not suggesting that fathers are angels .
but I'm suggesting that a lot of them want to see
their children," he said.

PEACE CORPS
Continued from Page 1.
"The people here want to help. They
feel they've had a great learning
opportunity and want to give back,
she said.
She added that because the Univer-
sity has one of the 20 Peace Corps
recruitment centers in the nation, a
large number of people interview for
positions here. Additionally, the
recruitment efforts on campus, which
include informative talks to classes
and campus groups, have shown favor-
able results.
In total, the Peace Corps currently
employs 7,300 volunteers in 76 coun-
tries. Yet the program is constantly
growing as new assignments are con-
tinually being announced. "There is
definitely room for more people to
apply," Mortimer said.
Former Peace Corps volunteers
praised the organization and the experi-
ences it offers. "I frequently recommend
Peace Corps to those that are interested,"
said Rackham student Liz Rettenmaier,
who volunteered in the African nation
of Ivory Coast from 1993 to 1995.

"It was an experience that I count
among the most incredible inmy life. It
isn't for everybody, but for those that are
looking for an opportunity to live in
another country for two years and expe-
rience a culture and a people in a way
that virtually no other job will offer,
Peace Corps is the way to go" she said.
Rackham student Jesse Buff, who
volunteered in Nicaragua from 1996 to
1998, said he shared the same senti-
ment. "It was probably one of the most
expanding types of experiences one
can have;' Buff said. "It was wonder-
ful all around."
Mortimer herself participated in the
Peace Corps, volunteering in Mali
from 1995 to 1997. "The experience
opens your eyes up to a whole new
perspective, one that I don't think
anyone regrets," she said.
The notion of the Peace Corps was
announced during a visit to the Uni-
versity of Michigan by presidential
candidate John F. Kennedy in 1960,
Standing on the steps of the Michigan
Union, Kennedy challenged a group of
10,000 students to volunteer their
skills overseas. The first group of vol-
unteers left for Africa in August 1961.

MSA
Continued from Page 1
ue with is efforts to reform the Code
of Student Conduct, now called the
Statement of Student Rights and
Responsibilities. Nolan and Cash said
they have placed Code revisions high
on their agenda.
Tsutsumi and outgoing vice-presi-
dent Jim Secreto said they are happy
that Nolan and Cash will be taking
their seats.
"I'm glad to leave," Secreto said,
"And I'm glad that I'm leaving the
assembly in experienced and well-
intentioned hands."
"I'd like to offer my most sincere
congratulations to Matt and Jessica,"
Tsutsumi said. "I'm sure they're going
to do a great job." Tsutsumi, who ran
for re-election, plans to stay involved
in MSA as a committee or commis-
sion chair.
Though 12 seats in this election
went to the Blue Party, Nolan and
Cash said they look forward to work-
ing with members from all parties.
"Part of the core of the Blue Party
philosophy is that party lines dissipate

after elections,' Nolan said.
Nolan and Cash, who campaigned
on their experience and knowledge of
the assembly, said they are eager to
start "putting the life back into the
assembly."
"Our role is to help facilitate what
the assembly wants to get done,"
Nolan said. Already Cash and Nolan
have met with Vice President for Stu,
dent Affairs E. Royster Harper about
inserting a fall break into the academic
calendar by Fall 2002.
Planned assembly reforms start with
requiring representatives to hold office
hours as stated in the MSA constitu-
tion and reforming the way the Steer-
ing Committee is run. They also want
to improve MSA's name on campus
and increase its visibility to the student
body.
"The way things are run is going to
change fundamentally;' Cash said.
After three months of planning for
three weeks of campaigning, Nolan
ano1 Cash have rested little, and don't
plan on doing so any time soon.
"We're both stunned right now,"
Cash said. "We fought a hard, cam-
paign, and we're ready to start.

AWARDS
Continued from Page 1
affairs, said, "These recipients prove
there is no one way to excel. They can
take in learning and give back at the
same time."
The awards were distributed in eight
categories.
In the category of Outstanding Stu-
dent Organization, the Detroit Project
and K-grams were honored. Frank
Cianciola, Interim Dean of Students and
the presenter in this category, said the
Detroit Project has "not only impacted
the University community in countless
ways, but it has formed strong bonds
between the University and community
organizations in Detroit working hard to
revitalize the city."
He added that K-grams "not only
affects the University, but also pro-
foundly affects the lives of children."
The Detroit Project Day of Service was
recognized as the Program of the Year.
Other awards handed out included
Outstanding New Member, Outstanding
Student Leader, Advisor of the Year,
Student Legacy Award and several lead-
ership awards from the office of Les-

bian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
Affairs.
In the last category, Mildred Tirado, a
University psychologist, presented the
Tapestry Award to nine students. This
award, a new addition to the ceremony,
seeks to recognize and acknowledge
students who promote "diversity, multi-
culturalism and social justice issues,"
Tirado said.
LSA senior Amy Burke, who
received a Tapestry Award for her work
with the Linguistic Undergraduate Club,
said she was glad to glad to receive the
award and attend the ceremony. "It's
also nice to see what other people
receiving awards were doing,"she said.
LSA senior Jessica Rett, another
Tapestry Award Recipient, also received
the award for her work with the club.
"I thought it was nice for a small club
like the Linguistic Club to get noticed,"
Rett said.
The awards ceremony is currently in
its 22nd year. Nominations are made
by faculty members and are then
decided upon by a committee. A group
of over 100 students, faculty and orga-
nizations were nominated for this
year's awards.

the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
upheld it in a decision released last
September.
"Until that future day when national
aspiration and national reality con-

under certain circumstances the feder-
al government may use race-conscious
means to remedy the effects of histori-

Choper said.
"If you're concerned about uphold-

Circuit Court ruling) to have gone the
other way.
"The difference between the Univer-
sity affirmative action program and a
contractor's affirmative action program
is yet undetermined," he said.
But the Court has been less kind to
affirmative action since the 1978
