Universities Push Fetishes On Campus
Universities have long abandoned the idea that some lifestyles are better than others. Morality is an outdated idea on your typical college campus. Events such as these–promoting behavior that has no place in a decent society–are the result of an environment that refuses to distinguish between the moral and immoral.
Yes, President Obama Defended Free Speech At Rutgers. No, That Won’t Change Anything
President Obama certainly deserves some credit for his defense of Rice and free speech. Had he remained silent, he would have effectively given a green light for future censorship. However, his speech is unlikely to have any real impact in the fight for free speech on college campuses.

The Return of State-Sanctioned Segregation
UConn recently announced plans for a new university-sponsored housing development but with a twist–the housing will only be available to black male students. The university leaves itself some (narrow) wiggle room by making the house available to students who “identify” as African-American.
Universities Need Higher Moral Goals
Countless hours of online questionnaires and consent lectures have created a booming new industry for companies specializing in awareness campaigns but otherwise have little else to show for the effort. What if we’re aiming too low?
