Daren Miller of Calgary is a special person, at least he thinks so, and he’d like the rest of the world to believe likewise.
Eighteen years ago Daren graduated from St. Mary’s University in Halifax, and up until today, (Tuesday) held two of its bachelor degrees.
Saying he’s disgusted by a frosh week chant that glorified the sexual assault of underage girls, Daren, with media in tow, marched on his alma mater and handed over his papers to the school’s registrar.
“To me, those degrees are valueless,” said Miller. “I wanted to distance myself (from) the embarrassment and shame I felt from this sort of culture…I am not that kind of guy.”
Is Daren suggesting that those who don’t dump their degrees, ARE “that kind of guy”, a “guy” that might endorse, “this sort of culture?”
In my view, Mr. Miller is just seeking attention with his over-the-top reaction, so you may want to be sure to tweet his praises and score him a “like” on Facebook.
Saint Mary’s, like other schools “frosh bitten”, has soundly denounced the dirty little chant, butts have been kicked and apologies given…Miller’s theatrics, not really necessary.
Then again, maybe our daughter should return her diploma from Guelph University.
It’s signed by Chancellor…Pamela Wallin!
Does SHE want to be…”THAT kind of guy?”
