Posted on 12/13/2007 4:12:15 PM PST by wagglebee
If you think political correctness on our college campuses is a threat to free speech, I have a news flash for you. It's even worse than that. It's actually putting the lives of our young people at risk.
Sound a bit over the top? Only if you haven't read a riveting account by a campus psychiatrist who knows the price our children are paying mentally, emotionally and physically for the attitudes that allow the "sexual revolution" to rage unchecked in the halls of "higher learning."
That psychiatrist, Dr. Miriam Grossman, took a bold step last year when she first published "Unprotected: A Campus Psychiatrist Reveals How Political Correctness in Her Profession Endangers Every Student." So bold, in fact, that the original hardcover edition (now out in paperback) listed the author as "Anonymous, M.D." The potential for backlash, personally and professionally, was all too real.
Backlash for what, you ask? Oh, writing sentences like this: "Casual sex is a health hazard for young women." Believe it or not, such expressions the embodiment of common sense to just about every parent on earth represent rank heresy in Dr. Grossman's profession. You're expected to hand out condoms and push "safe sex" (or "safer sex") on students at every turn, but never, ever "pass judgment" on any behavior. One should encourage "experimentation" and downplay any moral and religious concerns as the undesirable traits of a "patriarchal" society. Abstinence is an unattainable ideal, and "tradition" is another word for "repression."

Wow. I have GOT to get to a college campus.
Oy. Reason #54673 that local community college looks good.
Stay the hell away from MSU! I have told my daughter to tell me about “trollers”. I’ll beat you into a greasy spot in the carpet.
Have a nice day.
I never understand this attitude. College should be the place to study all the accumulated knowledge of western civilization - so the student doesn't have to recreate the wheel.
After college is when a student should begin to apply what they have learned and to be creative at the outer edges of accumulated knowledge.
Some students get A’s, B’s, C’s, STD’s.
Unfortunately, the women who came on to me in college didn't smell nice. I don't know what the problem was, but it was a deal killer again and again. I must have had unreasonable expectations sniff wise.
Then a professor put the moves on me and it totally wierded me out. In retrospect it sounds interesting and kinda kinky cause she was pretty hot, but at the time as a 20 y.o., I was wierded out.
To make a long story short, I ended up being a monongamous kind of fellow. It kept me out of trouble, I didn't have to keep track of my lies and I am still married to the woman I met in college. The nice smelling one...
I now teach in a college that, as it happens, is probably much more Conservative than most.
I find students adding me to their Facebook accts. and I end up getting all these Campus Crusade for Christ announcements. Nothing wrong with that, but a very different environment from what I remember from 30 years ago.
Plus, very little drug use. Too much drinking still, but students are consistently disparaging and critical of dope and ridicule it without mercy.
Funny how the worm turns.
Lets lobby for next year to be a No Undie Run. This stuff never happened in my college days! WAH, WAH!!
>>**warning for pix of young college students in underwear**<<
The horror; the horror!
I've always thought that the best revenge was to be more Conservative than your parents. Kinda like Michael J. Fox in that old TV show.
In my case the college where I teach is populated by students who often are the first in their family to attend college. That makes it a serious business. Combined with the fact that it is an extremely expensive and specialized private college, it seems that they take it very, very seriously.
Oh, a banana peel or a little bud probably slips through the cracks...
All in all, very career focused.
And this is new? Sounds like college back in the 70’s when I went.
Don’t think the odor of fish and patchouli ain’t sexy ? :-P
There are much better books on the subject. I recommend, in particular, Unhooked by Laura Sessions Stepp. Here is its Amazon URL:
