Students, faculty say 'whoa' to rodeos by MeUssa Muse News Editor While about 100,000 people poured into the Joe and Harry Freeman CoUseum for the Forty- First Annual Stock Show and Rodeo, UTSA students and facul¬ ty were among a group gathered outside the gate to protest the event. As cars passed in rodeo traffic, protesters held signs and passed out leaflets that called rodeos cruel and inhumane because of the harm they cause animals. When asked specificaUy what was happening in the coUseum that was hurting animals, pro¬ testers consistently cited three examples: electric prods used to make animals move, buck straps cinched around animal's ab¬ domens, and calf roping that causes neck injuries to calves. They also consistently said they intended to remain peaceful during the rally, which began at noon Sunday, Feb. 11, and lasted several hours. "I want everybody to know there are a lot of things that go on that aren't so humane. And, they sort of close their eyes to it. They think it's a sport, but it's not real¬ ly because the animals are not participating because they want to," said Mark A. Fitzgerald, a UTSA humanities major. "The humans make it a sport. But, it's not a sport for the animals — it's just a lot of pain," he continued. Mark H. Bernstein, UTSA associate professor of philosophy, said he was at the rally "to pro- Anfanal rights advocates march outside the Joe and Harry Freeman CoUseum to protest the rodeo hdd there. test the abuses of animals that contribute to the success of this rodeo." He also vas protesting, he added, the basic idea "that animals are resources to be used for human enjoyment." Bernstein said he was hopeful that the protest would change some minds about rodeos. However, he said, "It's a tough audience, obviously. I mean, the people that are seeing these signs — most of them anyway — are go¬ ing into the rodeo." Mark Ingram, UTSA political science major, said the rodeo is "almost liiee a Uve torture. 1 mean, people are cheering it on." Ingram said, Uke other pro¬ testers, that while a few people reacted with comments, most people were reacting to them by just driving by, many not even looking. As he said this, a passenger in a vehicle rolled down a window and yelled "Go home," to the protesters. Reactions from passers-by ranged from waves of encourage¬ ment to "one-fingered waves," said Fitzgerald. see "Rodeo," page 2 Speaker performs 'Hot, Sexy and Safer' by MeUssa Muse News Editor Listeners wUl laugh and learn about safer sex at the same time, during Suzi Landolphi's comical performance, "Hot, Sexy and Safer, " on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 1 p.m., in the University Center Roost. "Safer sex means never having to fake anything," Landolphi said from New York City during a telephone interview on Friday, Feb. 2. "And I don't mean just women faking orgasms," she add¬ ed. Landolphi's definition of safer sex includes three components: communication, honesty, and trust. With these established, says Landolphi, people can practice "many ways to sexually satisfy a partner besides intercourse." These altematives, which wUl be described during the presenta¬ tion, are safer than intercourse, Landolphi explained. However, when intercourse is chosen, Landolphi stresses the necessity of condom use, to stop the spread of sexually transmit¬ ted diseases, including AIDS. The protective properties of condoms are comically demonstrated during Landolphi's performances. At other colleges on her tour, Landolphi has blown up condcms and stretehed them over volunteer's heads. Landolphi's performance has also packed auditoriums and gyms at colleges on her tour, since the academic year began. One college administrator from New Hampshire wrote Landolphi's agent saying, "In fif¬ teen years of experience at Keene State College, I have never witnessed such a turn-out (468 countable) nor have we ever got¬ ten such overwhelmingly positive responses." UTSA has hosted AIDS and safe-sex education speakers and programs in the past, but most were poorly attended, said Dr. Dora Hauser, dean of students. Why do Landolphi's lectures draw attention where others have failed? She says ther are two reasons. The first is her human quality, Landolphi said. "I'm a human be¬ ing, not a scientific expert," she explained. "Giving just the facts does not necessarily change behavior one iota. What appeals to us is not just information, it has to be emotional, interesting and spiritual." "What appeals to us is not just information, it has to be emotional, in¬ teresting and spiritual." —Suzi Landolphi ' safer-sex educator The second reason for Lan¬ dolphi's popularity is her humor. "If that's what it takes to get students to attend," Hauser said, then she appreciates Landolphi's performance, which is sponsored by the University Center Pro¬ gram CouncU. "It helps us," ex¬ plained Hauser, to educate about AIDS. Hauser looks forward to seeing Landolphi as long as the perfor¬ mance does not pose a scheduling conflict. Despite Landolphi's populari¬ ty, organizations have protested her appearance on their campus. A Campus Crusade for Christ chapter in Modesto, California at¬ tended her lecture there to protest it. But, Landolphi said, she asked that they Usten to her message and "at the end they didn't have one question or one complaint." The reason, remarked Lan¬ dolphi, is that "my end result is the same as theirs and they didn't reaUze it." "I'm looking forward," Lan¬ dolphi added, "to coming to San Antonio." Suzi Landolphi combines humor and safer-sex education in her speech, "Hot. Sexy and Safer."
