We Don’t Have to Have More Fergusons...
Hello Stranger ... Want To Have Sex?|
May 7, 2014
Controversy has once again hit the campus of UNC-Wilmington. This time it's not
my fault. The controversy is actually the fault of a student. His crime is
simple: He decided to behave like a feminist behaves every day on campuses all
across America. Unfortunately for him, he chose to do so without the proper
genitalia and without the approval of the UNCW Women's Resource Center.
I was introduced to the controversy shortly after a student of mine finished
taking her final exam of the semester. After she had left my 2 pm exam, she came
into my 3:30 class and, as discreetly as possible, told me that a male student
had just walked up to her and asked if she wanted to have sex with him. It took
me a few minutes to figure out that she wasn't joking. So I asked her to give me
more information as we walked out into the hall to look for the offending
Apparently, the young man had been working his way through the building asking
every female student he saw if she would like to have sex with him. Some just
walked away, but some wanted an explanation for the wildly inappropriate
request. When pressed, he simply told them he hadn't had sex all semester and
didn't want to go home for the summer until he had. One woman reacted a little
more strongly to his indecent proposal. She started to cry and went upstairs
looking for help from someone in the psychology department. That's when things
Fortunately, the visibly shaken student found a concerned psychology professor
who went downstairs with her, found the male student, and told him to knock it
off. The propositioning student became incensed and told the professor he needed
to get over his hang-ups about sex. The student's argument was pretty simple:
Asking someone to have sex is no different than asking them to engage in any
other recreational activity such as playing basketball.
Of course, that argument was rejected and the UNCW police were called in to
apprehend the student. Fortunately, the psychology building is in walking
distance from Dunkin' Donuts so the police made the trek in less than an hour.
Upon arrival, they scoured the building in search of their suspect.
But what crime did the desperately horny student commit? Did he sexually harass
these women in a traditional sense? No, this was a case of creating a hostile
environment in the workplace. Had he done this in a bar, rather than on campus,
there would be no controversy. In other words, the venue made a difference.
Of course, there is another important variable to consider. If he were a female
student, his conduct would have been seen in a very different light. In order to
assess the possible role that gender played in the incident, please consider the
-Every year when they put on The Vagina Monologues, UNCW feminists send out an
email that begins with the line "Greetings vagina lovers." And they use the
university email system to send this to everyone. Feminists at another UNC
Women's Center advertised The Vagina Monologues by purchasing a six foot vagina
costume. They later took turns walking around campus dressed as a giant sex
-Feminists at the UNCW Women's Center once advertised The Vagina Monologues with
a large sign saying "p***ies unite." It was posted outside a campus diner where
faculty and staff often took their children to eat. Note that those responsible
for making the profane sign were professors, not students.
-Feminists at the UNCW Women's Center sold "p***y pops" made out of candy and
shaped to resemble female genitalia. Some feminist professors walked around the
lobby of Kenan Auditorium licking the candy-coated genitals in front of
-Feminists at the UNCW Women's Center have set up tables showing people how to
put condoms on cucumbers. But this isn't nearly as bad as the feminist students
at UNC-CH who actually built a vibrator museum and erected it (cough) in the
middle of campus.
-Feminists at the UNCW Women's Center posted pictures of nude women- some of
them under-aged - in the lobby of Randall Library as part of an "art" exhibit.
-Feminists at the UNCW Women's Center sold "I had an abortion" tee shirts on
campus so students could let strangers know they had killed their own children
and were proud of it.
All of these incidents are a reflection of a consistent philosophy promoted by
feminists here at UNCW. That philosophy is made up of two core principles: 1)
Women have a right to act as vulgar as they want in public because the rules of
ordinary decency and civility don't apply to them. 2) The key to personal
fulfillment is to have sex with as many people as possible and to view any
restrictions on sexual liberty as forms of patriarchal oppression.
So what was the crime of the male student who was publicly asking for casual sex
with female students who were total strangers? His crime was simply that he
accepted feminist arguments and behaved in a manner that is consistent with
feminist philosophy. But he did so without the proper genitalia.
Some who were near the propositioning male student said they overheard him
saying he had a premonition he was going get to a "yes" from one of his targets.
This talk of "premonitions" caused some to speculate that he was mentally
However, if accused of a specific crime, the offending student should not plead
insanity. His chances of acquittal would be better if he had a sex change.
