The "dirty dozen" list of "America's Most Bizarre and Politically Correct College Courses" is out and Los Angeles-area institutions of higher learning have walked away with one-fourth of the ranked honors (or dishonors). Occidental College, an 1,800-student liberal arts school in Eagle Rock, is the only college on the list to collect not one but two citations for excellence at offering trendy theories of gender, skin color and white-male oppression at the expense of actual academic content.
UCLA didn't fare badly either, with one citation. And believe me, the competition was stiff. The Southern California colleges were competing against such nationally recognized PC heavyweights as Cornell, Amherst, the University of Michigan and, of course, Duke.
The list comes from the Young America's Foundation, a 40-year-old nonprofit funded by conservative individuals and foundations. Its No. 1 slot this year for bizarre class offerings went to Occidental, for a course called "The Phallus."
No, it's not a biology course. It's a survey, offered by Oxy's department of critical theory and social justice, of "feminist and queer takings-on of the phallus." Topics include "the relation between the phallus and the penis, the meaning of the phallus, phallologocentrism, the lesbian phallus, the Jewish phallus, the Latino phallus, and the relation of the phallus and fetishism."
You might wonder how a lesbian can have a phallus, or whether it's possible to say "phallologocentrism" three times without tripping on your tongue, but if so, it's likely that you won't be getting an "A" from Occidental professor Jeffrey Tobin, who is teaching the course this spring semester.

"the relation between the phallus and the penis"
Clearly, this "professor" professes there to be a difference between phallus and penis.
Which would lead me to conclude that the lesbian phallus is, in fact, a strap-on.
She said that the American Indian had the largest penis, and the American Jew had the hardest. I introduced my self as Tonto Goldfarb
Yes, but did she demonstrate the Apache Bris?
(See Ed Ames on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson)
I remember. I saw it when it happened.
I heard it was a hard course.
"She said that the American Indian had the largest penis, and the American Jew had the hardest. I introduced my self as Tonto Goldfarb."
And the redneck has the best technique - my friends call me Bubba.
It could be worse, you could have gotten a Phallus 101 in your A..
I wrote a book in which the word "penis" appeared 99 times.
The word "phallus" appeared once.
I guess I would have flunked this course.
Wouldn't that be a logical phallusy?"
This line of reasoning is fellatious.
Really, both of you are cunning linguists!
Sorry, meant to ping you as well to #51!
Me an Mabel found this rock in a National Park out west.
It wuz the only one in the park that didnt have a name wif a little sign tellin folks wut its name wuz.
I kid you not, I took this course in 2nd grade: The phallic theory centered around an oppressive partiarchal system with three characters name Sally, Dick and Jane. It was gratifying when Dick found Spot.
I never knew King Kong was Jewish!
I'm very proud of the fact that I took too courses in slang in college. They certainly were a lot more interesting than the Keynesian economics and (socialist) poly sci courses I endured.
Did you know they make special cabinets to store 'em?
