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."

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!
In a lot of ways the society we live in has made young women irresponsible with quick fixes like abortion. Thing is that too isn't a quick fix with the psychological effect it has on the woman/teen.
“Sure wasnt that way at my college.
As usual, things are way exaggerated.”
Sounds just like the arguments drug dealers make, ‘go ahead everyones doing it’.
“In a lot of ways the society we live in has made young women irresponsible with quick fixes like abortion. “
I think its more about giving women higher status and rights than men. After all men are dirty rotten scoundrels according to the feminist movement.
I don’t feel much sympathy for “psychologists” who are afraid to tell the truth and submit to PC instead.
Silly me going to night school working my way through college.
Britney Spears was going to attend, but couldn’t find a thing to wear.
