Duly Quoted: Navid Nourian

“We’re not implying any sort of hate towards homosexuals, we’re not even mentioning them, other than the word faggots, twice.”
—Navid Nourian, editor-in-chief of U of T engineers’ lampooning newspaper, The Toike Oike, defends his paper to The Varsity. An article in a recent issue—written by what Nourian called “a crazy homeless man raving, an exaggerated caricature”—was titled “Faggots! All I see is Faggots!” It’s since been changed to “Maggots! All I see is Maggots!” [PDF]
