Sex Week and Spring Break are two phenomena happening each year on America’s college campuses for which struggling parents pay hard-earned tuition dollars as alums glorify abject debauchery parading as the latest form of academia’s political correctness. The Sex Week displays at six major universities (including Yale and my alma mater, the University of Illinois, held this past February in Champaign) leave me utterly speechless. When an undergrad degree is now criticized as being little more than an eighth grade diploma, why on earth would we support such decadence, decay, and destruction of the coming generations that will be tasked with running our country?
Scott Greer, writer for the web site Campus Reform says of the U of Illinois sex week speakers: “A residence hall at the University of Illinois has invited Annie Sprinkle, a famous porn star from the 1970′s and 80′s, to conduct a sex education week, which is set to culminate with an “Orgasm Workshop” Thursday night. Sprinkle was planning to show the “students” her documentary featuring interviews with orgasm experts and present herself as a “poetic homage” to the big O.”
The homosexual agenda is very popular in sex education seminars and curricula as described by authors Alan E. Sears and Craig Osten: ”Parents in Hayward, CA protested a school policy that allowed schoolteachers and staff to talk openly about their homosexual behavior with students during classroom instruction time without parental permission.” But the law entitled “The CA Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000″ relieves schools from having to inform parents about such lesson plans to their underage children.
Required reading for every parent of college age students is the “Sex and God at Yale” book by Nathan Harden. He gives a hard-hitting expose of political correctness and academic freedom gone horribly wrong. “An art student received departmental approval–before the ensuing media attention alerted the public and Yale alumni–for an art project in which she claimed to have used the blood and tissue from repeated self-induced miscarriages.” A reviewer of Harden’s book comments: “What passes for culture is the completely hookup culture, drunken parties, and occasional suicide.” Along with naked parties for coed entertainment, topics at sex week may include golden rain, SM apparatus with techniques, grooming, and even the infamous hamster and concrete ER crisis an Illinois doctor and his assistants had to furiously work before the concrete hardened! The cutting edge science of human egg harvesting informs female students about the profits that can be had.
The reviewer of the Harden book points out that “Yale was founded for the sole purpose of spreading religious faith.” (p. 226)
I emailed my journalism school and alumni contacts in Champaign this past week and cc’d my memo to the alumni club in Naples, FL. Teaching college students how to have orgasms or find each other for gender-driven sex events somehow does not compete in my mind with teaching them the English composition, American Literature quotations, and the 50′s journalism that I was privileged to have been taught.
