Authors Note: If you are concerned about this kind of spending in higher education, please contact Governor Pat McCrory at http://www.governor.state.nc.us/. His remarks about liberal arts education have been right on target. He gets it.
I think the time has come for a line item veto in higher education. The people of North Carolina are being bankrupted by higher education spending that is simply not academic in nature. The problem was once confined to UNCs flagship campus in Chapel Hill. But now it has spread like a cancer throughout the entire UNC system.
For example, this week (February 4-8, 2013) at Western Carolina University, the Womens Studies Program is sponsoring Sexual Empowerment Week. Each day will feature an event funded by North Carolina taxpayers. Here is the scheduled lineup:
February 4. In the Multi-purpose Room, between 7 and 9 p.m., an All You Ever Wanted to Know about Sex but Didnt Learn in High School panel was assembled. The panel featured two professors - one in Psychology (Hal Herzog) and one in Womens Studies (Marilyn Chamberlin).
In case you didnt know, Hal Herzog is an expert on animal behavior. He once wrote a book asking profound questions such as Is it Okay to kill animals just because they taste good? and Why is it Okay to feed a mouse but not a kitten to your pet boa constrictor? and, finally, Can dogs read peoples minds? The learned professor even developed a personality test for baby snakes.
Dr. Herzog later studied chickens, and as part of his research interviewed and observed people who engaged in cockfighting. Maybe thats how he got to be a sexual health expert. Lets just hope he doesnt integrate his interest in human sexual behavior with his interest in animal/human relationships.
February 5. In the Multi-purpose Room, between 6 and 8 p.m., sex therapist Marsha Rand lectured on how to have an emotionally and spiritually healthy sexual relationship. The flier says First 50 people only. It is unclear whether that was meant to limit seating to fifty people or whether her advice is only good for ones first fifty sex partners. Oh well, I guess sexual ambiguity is just another form of diversity.
February 6. In the Multi-purpose Room, between 7 and 9 p.m., there will be an event called Safe Sex led by Barbara Starnes. Since it was dubbed an interactive session it is unclear whether students will merely talk about or actually engage in - safe sex during the session. So hopefully the attendance will be limited to fifty people in this session, too. Otherwise, that would be one serious fire code violating orgy!
February 7. Sexual Empowerment Week moves to the Grand Ballroom to accommodate the climax of the weeks events (bad pun, sorry), which is a Sexuality Exploration Fair. Information will include how to masturbate (which is something no one can learn to do without a college education) and how to engage in BDSM sexual practices. BTW, BDSM stands for bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism. BTW, BTW stands for by the way. I know a lot about acronyms. I went to college.
February 7. Sexual Empowerment Week will be completed in the Multi-purpose Room between 8 and 9 p.m. with a book discussion. The topic is the realities of dominant/submissive relationships. I would submit that S&M is a dominant theme in the week of events.
I would also like to submit a series of public records requests to Dr. Marilyn Chamberlin, the morally confused individual who organized this absurd week of events at taxpayer expense. Specifically, I would like to know how much this cost and what plans she has to fund events that counter her advocacy of sexual permissiveness. You know, in the name of sexual diversity.

These professors may be sick but they arent stupid. They have tricked us into funding their side in the current culture war. And the casualties are our children.
It’s a beautiful campus on the edge of the Smokeys, recreational opportunities abound, much natural beauty. It attracted granolas even when I was there in the eighties, but they didn’t hold sway. This is sad.
How helpful. If he were a professor of herpetology, it might even mean something, but psychology? Piffle.
It's really the perv professors - our tax dollars at work! - who get off on this crap. They should go to jail.
These classes were definaely not offered when I was in school, and is it really any wonder that these hedonistic adolescents can’find employment outside of mickey d’s?
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
That's just being silly. Everybody knows it's because the kitteh can do serious damage to the snake's innards by trying to claw its way out of the snake.
