The Dildo Orgasm Heard 'Round The World


I had no idea that the sex toy demonstration in Prof. Bailey's "Human Sexuality" class was such a big deal until my mom texted me late last night asking me about it. Woke up this morning, and there's a full-blown media shitstorm going on. Front page of the Tribune. The Huffington Post. Even Dave from The Smoking Section chimed in.

No one fucksaw should have all this power.

It's common knowledge on the NU campus that Human Sex class is raunchy. That's why people take it. If Prof. Bailey only taught us how Fallopian tubes work or brought in erectile dysfunction guest lecturers, the class would just be called Health. And nobody would go. And Bailey probably wouldn't be tenured. If you register for the class, you know up front that you're going to hear, see, and maybe even feel some pretty awesome explicit stuff. Animal rights groups don't protest Biology classes when they find out some poor baby pig has been dissected for the sake of research. It comes with the territory. Such is the case with Bailey's class and sex acts. It comes with the territory. Hard.

Most "troubling" for me has been my school's immature, irrational and, in President Schapiro's case, insincere reaction to all this. NU is "conducting an investigation" right now, and Schapiro is on the record saying how "disappointed" he is with "Bailey's poor judgment". Reread that last sentence. If you can get through it without choking on all the bullshit, maybe you should be the next person to demonstrate in Human Sex. At least under the law, we are all adults on this campus. If the sight of a vagina being penetrated offends you, don't go to the class. If hearing about a vagina being penetrated offends you, then life is going to be rough. And celibate.

The entire time I've been at Northwestern, all I've heard is how we're supposed to set the standard of maturity, rationality and intellectual understanding for both our peers and the rest of society. We're the shit, essentially. So when something happens that challenges us to live up to those ideals, what do we do? We retreat to conservative dogma and political soft-shoeing. We have a published Holocaust denier on tenure here, and yet a dildo orgasm offends people. The bullshit is mind-blowing.

The fuck saw demonstration was performed by adults and for adults. It was voluntary, after class, and students were warned of what was about to occur. No laws were broken, so no "investigations" need occur. I hope Bailey has R. Kelly as his next guest lecturer just to spite Morty and the rest of the peanut gallery.

Call bullshit out when you see it. Please.
