Today, I wouldn't trade places with an 18-year-old guy for a million bucks.
It's a wonder our sons don't end up in the loony bin, given the schizophrenic messages we bombard them with.
The latest "you've-got-to-be-kidding" example to cross my desk involved frat-boy antics at Yale University -- home to lots of folks who pride themselves on being among our nation's best and brightest.
A few months ago, it seems, a group of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity pledges marched onto Yale's campus and chanted crude slogans "making light of" rape and necrophilia, according to the Yale alumni magazine. ("No means yes, yes means anal" -- you get the idea.)
A "storm of controversy" erupted. Yale administrators expressed shock and outrage.
"We will confront hateful speech when it has been uttered," vowed President Richard Levin and Dean Mary Miller, according to the magazine. "No member of our community should engage in such demeaning behavior."
The Yale Women's Center went ballistic, of course, and "students, administrators, and alumni all wrestled with how to respond to a public display that many found offensive."
An online alumni petition condemning the chants drew nearly 2,000 signatures. Predictably, the frat boys -- denounced on all sides -- apologized for their crude behavior.
OK, OK, the Yale critics are right. Young gentlemen should not conduct themselves this way. But wait, what else is happening on campus?
Well, there's Yale's biennial "Sex Week" -- a nine-day, student-sponsored event timed to coincide with Valentine's Day and blessed by university bigwigs. Last year, a Sex Week headliner was porn megastar Sasha Grey.
Grey's claim to fame is her insatiable appetite for being sexually brutalized. Among porn performers, she stands out for "her take-no-prisoners attitude toward the hardest of hard-core sex scenes and consensual degradation," according to the Los Angeles Times.

The left is so offended by “the words will never hurt me”
While engaging in perverted “sticks and stones”
Let's get this straight. Yale big wigs invite young men -- buzzed by testosterone -- to experience and celebrate the outer edges of male sexual prurience. They invite them to ogle female fellow students in garters and leather bustiers as they slink down the catwalk in the university dining hall.
But when the guys take the invitation seriously, an outraged chorus denounces them for "demeaning" and "hateful speech."
She's into philosophy. She also did something (related to biology perhaps?) titled "Sasha Grey's Anatomy", but I chose not to post that cover photo.
The hallmark of the liberal mind is the complete inability to link cause and effect.
If someone is making money by influencing the culture in this way, it’s a good thing.
If someone is not making money, and is acting as a normal person, who is influenced by the culture, they’re punished.
Give my guys a charter. We’ll really give them something to talk about.
How is this confusing to anyone?
Guys do something normal for guys - bad.
Leftists promote any type of debauchery they want = good.
How about if whites - dare it - were to set up a whites only housing unit - sponsored by the campus? To celebrate white culture?
The left is just morally and intellectually bankrupt. The author is just late to the realization.
Sasha rocks! You should see what she does in a movie called “babysitters”
But, ultimately, this is just about a bunch of women who are so ugly they can’t get laid...
What creeps. Marching on campus advocating a violent crime.
They link cause and effect all right, just not Nature’s cause and effect—that which is designed by God. It is man made—to twist and pervert the human being into just a “trousered ape” —no such thing as God and morality. They are intentionally destroying the idea of God and the connection of sex to procreation to dehumanize people and make sex a commodity and nothing of importance.
To destroy the idea of man and woman....they have to destroy everything that makes sex between the two beautiful and life-affirming. It is the cultural Marxist rot from brains of Ayers and Ginsberg and Marcuse that was injected into all the universities in the 30’s through 50’s.
They particularly loathe Christianity and authoritarian males (that which made this country great and not easy to manipulate-—the patriarchy)....The cultural Marxists have been destroying morality for decades to destroy the Christian paradigm. They use sex—combine Freud with Marx to seduce the weak and uneducated.....even the educated have been brainwashed into their secular humanism through public schools.
The real men that are left?????? should revolt and stop this cr*p.
Take a gander at the comments.
Some very angry people out there. How dare you criticize our porn!
Best and brightest?
Maybe close in science.
But in the humani-joke majors?
The problems the DKE pledges presented to the politically correct left-wing are: 1) they are men, 2) they decided on their own to speak and act, 3) their words and actions reflected heterosexual sex and 4) they projected male dominance.
Of course, they did this to project their own machismo, which is encouraged by the left-wing; however, it is not encouraged to build up the traditional male stature, but to have something to attack them with, as they did in this situation.
If they were women, or they were part of a school-sponsored program, or their demonstration was about any sort of non-heterosexual sex or they protrayed themselves as weak or effeminate, they would have simply been another campus celebration.
The entertainment and marketing industry have swung into overdrive the past few years in evoking this kind of behavior by producing trash just shy of pornography (which makes pornography appear normal and acceptable) and always presenting men in a degrading fashion as worthless, spineless morons, thereby rationalizing any idiotic thing men do, since, well, they’re idiots according to hollywood.
Conservatives should, of course, always teach their sons to be gentlemen, which renders this tactic and many others useless.
