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:
They are just now realizing this????? Geez.
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

Sounds like the best advice for college men is to install a video capture system.
Most parents are either unaware of the “sex with anyone, at anytime, in any fashion, for any reason” culture pervading today’s campuses. No no, this is nothing new and has been going for ages, trust me...
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 spent WAY too much time in laboratories when I was a student.
I certainly hope these college men have a better idea than a video capture system.
Note to self: re-enroll at alma mater.....
All the guys are running around in boxers and most of the girls are running around dressed like strippers. Guess these young women are really empowered.
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.
Michigan? Minnesota? Mississippi? Montana? Moldavia? Mali? Madagascar? Malaysia?
Must have been anchovies
Midrassa Shia University...
Thanks for sharing.
Keep up the great, rewarding work teacher.
Sure wasn’t that way at my college.
As usual, things are way exaggerated.
Does some of this go on.....yes. At some schools, more than others.
But, it happened 30 years ago just as bad.
What subject do you teach?
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 children who grew up in the Clinton era have come of age. Their whole lives they were instructed that oral sex was not “sex”.
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.
Hmph... it was worse when I was at college, back in the days before HIV and herpes. Today's kids are pretty good, actually.
Looks like nothing much has changed and college students are the same the world over!
And that's just the hep test.
What my children learned was: If the name Bill Clinton occurs on the car radio, the volume is immediately turned off.
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.
I cancelled the cable TV when the Clinton special prosecutor's report hit the news.
It’s astonishing. Almost as astonishing as the amounts of money people pay for this “education.”
Colleges are actively promoting the sexual license desired by radical atheistic secular leftist materialism.
Oh man. A little too early for that comment FRiend. Yuk!
