Yale’s Latest Sexual Perversion

You won’t believe what they’re up to in New Haven. The latest example of a Yale’s depravity is so graphic that I can’t even mention much of it on these family-friendly pages. It involves an innuendo-filled flyer that appeared all over campus this week, advertising a fake event by a female author of a sex-themed book supposedly entitled “Let’s Find Out The Hard Way.” Crude, and woman-demeaning, this is comic material worthy of a 13-year-old’s intelligence and sophistication. How bad was it? Take a look for yourself at the Yale Daily News.

The fictitious flyer wouldn’t be so troubling if it weren’t so true to life.

In my new book, Sex & God at Yale, I set out to warn America that the institution charged with educating our next generation of political and cultural leaders has collapsed into a bizarre and sad sexual dystopia. I showed how the porn aesthetic had been mainstreamed by a generation of left-wing academics so enamored of moral relativism that they allowed the classroom to become a revolving marketplace for corporate interests in the sex industry, including porn companies and sex-toy manufacturers. Meanwhile, Yale’s sexual culture became so unhinged and radicalized that Yale has become infamous for a series of high-profile cases of sexual assault.

Predictably, my warnings have been dismissed by the left-wing media establishment. In the New York Times, feminist Hanna Rosin criticized me for being “protective and patriarchal.” In The New Republic, Nora Caplan-Bricker tried to make the case, most implausibly, that I wrote a 300-page book about college sex culture because I don’t like it when people “think and talk about sex too much” — an absurd critique that Andrew Sullivan nevertheless felt compelled to reprint on this blog at The Daily Beast.

According to the critics on the left, there’s no problem in New Haven, nothing demeaning, immoral, or unworthy of one of the world’s most influential universities. Nothing wrong, more broadly speaking, of this generation’s internalization of the porn aesthetic. Women, they argue, have been empowered by hyper-sexulization.

I ask Rosin, Sullivan, & Co. to take a look at the Yale Daily News link and reconsider: Is this what women’s empowerment looks like in 2012?
