You may be surprised to learn that Yale University, founded in 1701 to train clergy and political leaders, has a student-sponsored “Sex Week.” Supposedly designed “to help students discuss sensitive issues and real concerns,” this provocative event, in recent years, has degenerated further into a porn industry exhibit.
In the face of today’s hook-up culture, a fearless group of Yale students are refusing to accept the normalization of sexual degradation. They say:
“Simply put…It is trivializing to treat sex as nothing more than a casual weekend pastime. It is obsessive—and pathetic—to be as consumed with sexual curiosity as our campus so frequently is.”
Their concern over the sexual disrespect and promiscuity on the campus prompted a proposal for positive change. The “Undergraduates for a Better Yale College” recommend that the University discontinue “Sex Week” and that the student sponsored event “be prohibited from using Yale’s name and any Yale facilities.”
I say: Yea!
