Anything-goes sex on campus
WorldNetDaily ^ | 12/13/07 | Rebecca Hagelin

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."

Most parents are either unaware of the "sex with anyone, at anytime, in any fashion, for any reason" culture pervading today's campuses, or they just don't want to know. Don't be one of those parents. For the sake of our children and our grandchildren, it's time to get involved and make a difference.

It certainly is!

When dad asked him over Thanksgiving the most challenging part of his first months at college, the son replied, "The pressure to declare myself homosexual."

Oy. Reason #54673 that local community college looks good.

Isn't that what youth is about – questioning, idealism, change?

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.

I was a college student during the mid to later 70's and as a teenager, of course, wanted to live up to the expectations of the Free Love generation.

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.

Really? Not even marijuana or banana peels?

It is funny. I always thought that for this generation to rebel they'd have to be more conservative.

"I always thought that for this generation to rebel they'd have to be more conservative."

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.

While I generally agree with Dr. Grossman's conclusions, a scientist she isn't. Her statements should be viewed as anecdotal only. I put her book down at the point where she asserted that human monogamy had become widespread only within the past 5,000 years.

There are much better books on the subject. I recommend, in particular, Unhooked by Laura Sessions Stepp. Here is its Amazon URL:

2002 - 19 year old cried rape

problem was her friends had video taped the alleged rape

tape revealed this young woman was the agressor

she reported the rape 3 days after she had sex with the young man publicly

morning after regrets to the max

-----------

another case -- 21 year old -- went to a young man's apartment off campus -- drank heavily, smoked pot

his friends taped the encounter

while she tried to cry rape... she had actually encouraged the young man

both cases very sad... and these young women were haunted by what they had done

I wondered at the time why their mothers didn't warn them about this behavior

I’m one of the dinosaurs on FR, having been born in 1950. Of course sexual attitudes were more restrained in the past, especially those of women. (”Nice girls don’t do it and so forth.) Attitudes were even more restrained before the mid-1960s. To get a sense of that, look at old television shows. I remember that in the late 1950s, a man down the street stayed up late at night in order to see the bra commercials on TV. They were considered too sexually-charged for anything other than late night television.

I certainly hope these college men have a better idea than a video capture system.

In some schools they’ll press rape charges against the guy if the girl as had even 1 drink. Evidently under the concept that he took advantage of her in her drunken state. Brown University is one example that pushes this.

But, it happened 30 years ago just as bad.

I am in my first year teaching TV production and speech in middle school. It is awful...the discipline issues. I hope I get it figured out; if not, I can’t do it next year!

I might get my doctorate in history and teach college then.

"The pressure to declare myself homosexual."

I had read a vague little line about an Ivy League campus where homophobia was considered " the unwillingness to engage in sodomy." 1/3 of the males there had supposedly declared themselves homosexual. Looks like Columbia is that school.

I don’t see change happening. Colleges are run by liberals; promoters of the sex positive agenda. The results have been high out of wedlock birth rates, single mothers, welfare, crime, 1.3 million abortions per year, an increase in STDs, etc. A society with problems needs more government intervention, and in step the liberals. This country will need a religious revival and/or pervasive change in attitude for a change. I don’t see it happening. Look at the replies to this thread on FR alone.

I have to say that this sort of thing was going on in England back in 1981, when I was at college in London. No strings shagging 'relationships' were fairly common.

Looks like nothing much has changed and college students are the same the world over!

Thats a load of crap. Does casual sex happen at college? Yes. It also happens before and after college. Is it accepted? Again yes, Sex and the City anyone? Does it occur in any semblence to what's described here, NOPE.
