Regarding Sev Onyshkevych ’83’s comment (in “Crashing the Conservative Party,” January 2023) that today “it is much more difficult to be an ‘out’ conservative than it was to be Jewish, Black, female, or gay in my day” — you will not find a better example of the breathtaking arrogance and blinkered entitlement that underlies such thinking. Please help me understand what makes Mr. Onyshkevych a reliable source to help understand and appreciate the difficulties faced by Jewish, or Black, or female, or gay students in the Princeton of the early 1980s.
