Drawings in magazine called degrading
by UPI

CHICAGO -- The publication of graphic sexual drawings has threatened the future of a literary magazine at Chicago's Loyola University.

Action on a resolution to oust the editor of Diminuendo and revoke its funding has been tabled until Tuesday by the student senate, The Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday.

Introduced by five male senators, the resolution calls on editor Bre Kidman to resign for publishing drawings termed "degrading and disrespectful to members of the student body."

In addition to Kidman's resignation, the resolution seeks to revoke student funds remaining in the literary magazine's account.

"The debate is still fiery," said student government chief Scott Harris. "The resolution is in a state of disarray."

Last month Loyola took copies of the magazine off the racks saying some of the art contained in it was offensive to women and could even be considered pornographic.

Kidman has apologized to anyone who was offended by the drawings but defended the publication's right to print the work.
