The Texas Student Media advertising policy allows TSM to “reject any advertising that can be considered to contain attacks on a person’s gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or any other personal trait.” As a result, we were concerned about the ad that appeared opposite the opinion page today because of its nature and the language involved. After deliberation among the advertising department, the TSM director and members of The Daily Texan staff, including the managing editor, suggested changes were made, and while the editorial board does not support the content, tone or language of the ad, it still complies with the TSM ad policy. It is an advertisement and does not reflect the opinions or beliefs of The Daily Texan staff or TSM. If you have comments about this ad, please contact TSM Director Gary Borders at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 512-471-5084.
