First, Cubbage's statement must be deemed one of the great statements summarizing the state of American university education. The University of Chicago just released a devastating report on American universities, the gist of which is that most American students learn little or even nothing during their first two years at college.
In the 1960s and '70s, university education was trashed. Required courses were dropped, as 19-year-old "grown ups" were told that they would now decide what they would study. One could henceforth attend most American universities never having read a word of Shakespeare or one verse of the Bible, never having taken a course on Western civilization or American history, never having heard a symphony or, for that matter, never having experienced anything uplifting or elevating.
Whatever was previously deemed great -- as in great men, great literature, great art -- was deconstructed to mean nothing more than some ethnocentric, phallic-centric, culturally biased nonsense. Too many DWEM -- Dead White European Males -- had been studied before. Now students would study Latina lesbian poets.
In Bailey's class and Mr. Cubbage's statement, we have reached the logical culmination of the '60s and '70s. Instead of studying Dead White European Males, students get to study a young white living female ejaculating with a f---saw.
Second, the complete secularization of everything -- from ethics to human sexuality -- has also reached its logical culmination. For four years, the American college student is taught that human beings are animals. The notion that humans are not only animals, but also creatures created in the image of God and therefore possessors of ineffable sanctity, is dead at our institutions of higher learning. Actually, worse than dead -- laughed at.
And since we are only animals, why shouldn't students have a woman come to orgasm in front of a hundred students? Except for the possible titillation, the exhibition is no different than watching a female baboon having sex.
By Northwestern's logic, a biology class studying the excretory system would watch a man or woman relieve themselves in front of a hundred students. I cannot think of a single argument the man-is-an-animal crowd could offer against it.
So, parents, just know that by and large that is the message your son or daughter gets at almost any American university for your $50,000 per year (Northwestern's tuition plus expenses). Most colleges don't have public orgasm sessions. But I'll bet almost none, aside from garnering bad publicity, can think of a single good reason not to.
