This is proving controversial , possibly because he’s conservative , or possibly because he compared a Black teenager to a primate and suggested women who have abortions should be hanged. In reality, the anxiety over Williamson’s hiring is revealing a fissure in how we think opinion-column space should be distributed. Under the reflective view, opinion columns should roughly mirror — reflect — the opinions that exist in the wider public around politics. We should have conservative columnists because many people are conservative, and it’s important that the readership be exposed to that common view. Under the legitimation view, by contrast, opinion columnists should be chosen because the editors conclude that their views are affirmatively worth considering. This almost certainly falls short of requiring agreeing with the views — I can think of many opinions I don’t share but which I nonetheless think are worth wrestling with — but it does represent some commentary on quality. A string of gibberish isn’t heard often in august editorial sections, but that doesn’t mean it should be published.

Why Hookup Culture Isn’t Responsible For Rape On College Campuses [Lady Bits]

Christ Is In Our Midst: Recently I read an article in the New York Times that I found depressing and distressing, though, sadly, not very surprising. Based on interviews conducted at the University of Pennsylvania with 60 female students over the course of a year, the article described a trend found among students at Penn and other universities who have given up on what they see as an outdated notion of dating or courting.

Jul 14,  · In general, she said, she thought that guys at Penn controlled the hookup culture. But women played a role as well. “It’s kind of like a spiral,” she said.

Compiled by comments left on the NY Times page that succinctly put the words to my feelings. Folks romance and physical attraction are so exciting on their own that alcohol only dulls the experience. The process of a relationship is part of the experience of being a human being. Lots and lots of great sex. A dose of romance and real caring for each other. Resorting to hook-ups to escape relationships only delays the inevitable.

Jan 14,  · The latest Hollywood movie to give comic books a bad name, “Elektra” stars Jennifer Garner as a superheroine who lays waste to every man in sight.

Women interviewed anonymously, which is telling in itself at Penn State recognized that they were not going to succeed in their desires for a boyfriend, and decided to just join the blowjob party in exchange for what they COULD get: But at the same time, they want to, like, have contact with guys. Women said universally that hookups could not exist without alcohol, because they were for the most part too uncomfortable to pair off with men they did not know well without being drunk.

At one point, she asked the young women if any of them wanted to marry and have children. How do the men feel? Actual men are not required to blame all men. Responding to Tina Brown, who thinks young women are making a big mistake to play along, Marcotte has this to say: Did we get that? Men are selfish dicks who treat women like blowjob machines. Hell, I did it. The reality is that many of the young men who are all caught up in masculine posturing in college mellow out afterwards and become completely eligible bachelors who are totally capable of offering love and support in return for getting it.

Way back at the beginning of the semester we were introduced to Marxist ideas about sex. One of the main ideas was that because of its focus on performance, sex has come to resemble work. With the shift towards a corporate culture comes a whole new set of values and beliefs. People are no longing working to live but rather living to work and with this shift comes a shift in priorities.

This work-hard mentality is also present on college campuses, specifically the ivy leagues and other particularly rigorous universities. Because of this, Kate Taylor, in an article for The New York Times, argues that college aged women, at Penn for example, embrace hook-up culture because having causal sexual interactions is more productive and conducive to their busy schedules than investing in a relationship.

However, if both men and women share this fear, as the interviewee and her friends seem to suggest, then its no wonder that casual hook up encounters are going to flourish on college campuses. Hooking up allows for both men and women to act on natural sexual impulses without being emotionally and temporally invested. This is contradictory to what Bogle argues in her exploration of hook up culture.

The article, which flagrantly cherry-picked and misrepresented the attitudes of Penn students, was based on the incredible premise that the sex lives of college-age women are both newsworthy and deserving of censure. There is a necessary place for those, like Katz, who would champion temperance and modesty, but such arguments must be made without demeaning and punishing women who make other choices about their own bodies.

Too often, as in the Taylor piece, discussion of modesty turns into slut-shaming, which portrays women who choose sex as not just different, but disgusting and wicked. In response, both laws and social mores have condemned those women brave enough to admit the fact of their sexuality. Katz rightly explains how the strictures of halacha can be deeply empowering to her and to all Jews seeking refuge from the chaos of modernity. Katz is entirely sensible in her contention that the sweaty, anything-goes atmosphere of a frat party is more conducive to vice than to virtue, and the dialogue she begins is an important one to have.
