WAKE UP Parents!!!!!
It is time for parents to wake up to what their children are being taught! Our children are our most precious resource and yet we have schools who are teaching children how to download pornography (HT:Tracy at Anti-Strib) and asking our 1st and 2nd graders about their sexual fantasies among other things. You think I am exaggerating? Take a look at this list of credit courses from some of our more "prestigious" universities:
- Princeton University's The Cultural Production of Early Modern Women examines “prostitutes,” “cross-dressing,” and “same-sex eroticism” in 16th - and 17th - century England, France, Italy and Spain
- At The Johns Hopkins University, students in the Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll in Ancient Egypt class view slideshows of women in ancient Egypt “vomiting on each other,” “having intercourse,” and “fixing their hair.”
- Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania offers the class Lesbian Novels Since World War II.
- Alfred University's Nip, Tuck, Perm, Pierce, and Tattoo: Adventures with Embodied Culture, mostly made up of women, encourages students to think about the meaning behind “teeth whitening, tanning, shaving, and hair dyeing.” Special projects include visiting a tattoo-and-piercing studio and watching Arnold Schwarzenegger’s bodybuilding film, Pumping Iron.
- Harvard University's Marxist Concepts of Racism examines “the role of capitalist development and expansion in creating racial inequality” Although Karl Marx didn't say much on race, leftist professors in this course extrapolate information on “racial oppression” and “racial antagonism."
- Occidental College has 2 —one a course in Stupidity, which compares the American presidency to Beavis and Butthead and the other The Unbearable Whiteness of Barbie: Race and Popular Culture in the United States which explores ways “which scientific racism has been put to use in the making of Barbie [and] to an interpretation of the film The Matrix as a Marxist critique of capitalism.” .
- University of California, Los Angeles offers The Psychology of the Lesbian Experience reviews “various aspects of lesbian experience” including the “impact of heterosexism/stigma, gender role socialization, minority status of women and lesbians, identity development within a multicultural society, changes in psychological theories about lesbians in sociohistorical context.”
- Duke University's American Dreams/American Realities course supposedly unearths “such myths as ‘rags to riches,’ ‘beacon to the world,’ and the ‘frontier,’ in defining the American character".
- Amherst College in Massachusetts offers the class Taking Marx Seriously: “Should Marx be given another chance?” Students in this course are asked to question if Marxism still has any “credibility” remaining, while also inquiring if societies can gain new insights by “returning to [Marx’s] texts.” Coming to Marx’s rescue, this course also states that Lenin, Stalin, and Pol Pot misapplied the concepts of Marxism.
- Brown University's Black Lavender: A Study of Black Gay & Lesbian Plays “address[es] the identities and issues of Black gay men and lesbians, and offer[s] various points of view from within and without the Black gay and lesbian artistic communities.”
- Students enrolled in the University of Michigan's Topics in Literary Studies: Ancient Greek/Modern Gay Sexuality have the pleasure of reading a “wide selection of ancient Greek (and a few Roman) texts that deal with same-sex love, desire, gender dissidence, and sexual behavior.”

What can a parent do? Discuss your child's course work with your child and with your childs teachers. For universities, with hold donations if you are an alumni. Attend school board meetings and run for the board if you feel the board is not listening to the concerned parents! Find teachers who are willing to stand up to the NEA/MEA and encourage them. Help the teachers take back their unions. In other words, get involved. Write letters to your local paper. You have the power to take back your community if you are willing to get up and work for it.
Now is the time - GET INVOLVED!
