Harvard approves BDSM club
College Insurrection ^ | 11-29-12 | W. A. Jacobson

“The Harvard Munch”

Because Orgasm Seminars are not enough. And Incest Fest is so yesterday.

The logical next step was official recognition of a BDSM Club:

It started last October with a meal in Currier dining hall with a handful of friends who shared something in common: an affinity for kinky sex.

More than a year after the group first began informally meeting over meals to discuss issues and topics relating to kinky sex, Harvard College Munch has grown from seven to about 20 members and is one of 15 student organization that will be approved by the Committee on Student Life this Friday.

Michael, who was granted anonymity by The Crimson to protect his privacy, is the founder of Munch, an informal lunch or dinner meeting for people across the kink community.

For him, the recognition will provide a sense of ease for current and future members, knowing they are receiving institutional support.

“It’s a little hyperbolic for me to get teary-eyed and paternal about sophomores, but it’s really a joy to see the experience they will have now,” Michael said.

Michael said there are many benefits to being officially recognized on campus such as being able to poster for events and promote Munch’s presence.

“If you come to campus and you have the sexual interests we represent, you may not even suspect that such a group exists,” Michael said.

Munch is also now allowed to apply for DAPA food grants, making it easier to find a convenient time and location to meet, instead of gathering in small dining halls.

But for Michael, the biggest advantage to being recognized comes with “the fact of legitimacy,” he said. “[Our recognition] shows we are being taken seriously.”

Certain sections of it are well past insanity.

Hard to believe that Harvard started out as a divinity school.

And to think that Harvard was set up as a seminary.

American universities have adopted as one of their goals the total destruction of all the basis of morality and ethics, as found in the Christian/Jewish tradition.

Does your child’s university have a Sex Week? Probably does, with a different name.

Why can’t they just teach things to make the kids ready for a productive adult life? Oh, I forgot. They don’t want them to have a productive adult life. They want them to be little marxists, taking money from the fools who actually work for a living.

"“We are being taken seriously.” No you’re not."

Oh, but they are. I wonder how an application would be received if it was from a hetero normative, Christian group that wanted to me to celebrate and discuss the benefits of a traditional, nuclear family?

Freedom of ass-ociation is fine by me and should be supported by all and for all. Do not deny this freedom to christian groups, military and conservatives and I won't deny them to others. As to giving grants or any special recognition? Nope, sorry.
I don't want to attend their functions but I won't deny them that right as adults.

Maybe the Muslims are right. Our “culture” is corrupt.

“...20 members...”

Nineteen guys and one really fat, smelly, hirsute chick (that’s dreamed of this her entire life).

Ditto.

They want a grant of our tax dollars for a special meeting room?

I would think, with a little research, they should be able to come up with a centuries old basement that is dungeon-like beyond their wildest dreams.

Harvard has been around a long time and should have plenty available for free.

They could then put in a little "sweat equity" and outfit it with all the devices and equipment they can dream up.

They need to change the school name to Pervard.

I’m surprised it took this long for a student BDSM group to form at Harvard. And only 20 members? Out of over 20,000 students?

As for funding, Harvard has a big endowment. They’ll fund nearly any student initiative.

But he who pays the piper calls the tune.
