When the CRs tried to post a notice that the speech had been moved, a university employee said that the poster (showing my name and picture next to an American flag) ?might be offensive to some students.? Is one university employee?s prediction that a form of speech ?might be offensive to some students? sufficient to trump the First Amendment at Georgia Tech? Did they seriously think that such a stupid remark would not appear in one of my columns? And why was a Georgia Tech student recently forced to take down an American flag posted above his desk just because it offended a foreign student? Wouldn?t it be easier to tell the ?offended? student to get the hell out of the country?
Hemingway and hate speech. The other day, I was reading A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. In the second chapter of the book, he recounted a conversation he once had with Gertrude Stein on the topic of homosexuality. He quoted her as saying: ?(T)he act male homosexuals commit is ugly and repugnant and afterwards they are disgusted with themselves. They drink and take drugs, to palliate this, but they are disgusted with the act and they are always changing partners and cannot be really happy.? I can?t understand why college professors aren?t assigning Hemingway very often these days. Can you?
Masturbation workshops. When Grinnell College initiated its ?masturbation workshops? and its ?vagina week,? what were they thinking? And who runs the masturbation workshops? How do they compete for the directorship of such a workshop? Do they have a resume that boasts of their experience in this area of expertise? Does someone who has been practicing the art of self-stimulation for ten years get the nod over someone with only eight years of experience? Is age discrimination a potential problem, here? Does anyone else have a bad feeling about this?
Tolstoy and tolerance. Instead of talking about feminism and ?queer literature? in the classroom, when will college English professors return to teaching the great works of literature? The first paragraph of Anna Karenina reads: ?Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.? Isn?t that the truth? Is there any better way to summarize the lie of diversity and moral relativism? Don?t children who understand this have a better chance of finding true happiness? Don?t we want our children to be happy? And, finally, how can that happen when they are being taught by those who are so utterly miserable?
Beautiful conservative columnists. Why do people always write me to express their opinion on the question of ?who is the most beautiful conservative columnist in America?? And why do they always argue about whether it is Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin? Isn?t it obvious that the most beautiful and classy conservative writer is Phyllis Schlafley? And just because Phyllis is too classy to comment about how ugly and angry most liberal feminist columnists are, does that mean that I can?t? And when will Heather Nauert start to write a column? Man, is she good looking or what? And, finally, is my wife reading this?
