There may be some people who still believe that the slim-majority-approved and loudly campaigned-for acceptance of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual) orientations will complete the alternative sexual orientation revolution.

Anyone so naïve needs to consider the March 5 Campus Reform report by Katherine Timpe, which included the following:

“On Saturday afternoon, Yale hosted a ‘sensitivity training’ in which students were asked to consider topics such as bestiality, incest, and accepting money for sex. …

“The session was hosted by ‘sexologist’ Dr. Jill McDevitt, who owns a sex store called Feminique in West Chester, Pa.

“Survey responses revealed that 9 percent of attendees had been paid for sex, 3 percent had engaged in bestiality, and 52 percent had participated in ‘consensual pain’ during sex, according to an article published in Yale Daily News. …

“Event director Giuliana Berry ’14 told Campus Reform in an interview on Monday that the workshop was brought to campus to teach students not to automatically judge people who may have engaged in these sorts of activities, but rather to respond with ‘understanding’ and ‘compassion.’

“‘People do engage in some of these activities that we believe only for example perverts engage in,’ she said. ‘What the goal is is to increase compassion for people who may engage in activities that are not what you would personally consider normal’ …

“‘We are not all heterosexual, able-bodied folks who have standard missionary sex.’

“During the workshop, McDevitt taught the approximately 40 students that just because people think something is deviant does not mean that it is bad.

“‘It’s sensitivity training. Don’t judge other people, because we all have something we’re embarrassed about.’

“The event was part of Yale’s Sex Weekend, which ran from Feb. 28 through March 3. Sponsors included Yale Women’s Center, Undergraduate Organizations Committee, the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response Education Center at Yale, and SeLF: The Sexual Literacy Forum.”

All of this raises a number of questions, including the following:

  1. When will the administration of Yale University approve of any undergraduate organization operating houses of prostitution?

  2. Will the university conduct any sort of health analysis to determine if the rate of student venereal disease has increased as a result of this “sensitivity training”?
  3. What has the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – as well as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – have to say about Yale teaching sensitivity to bestiality?
  4. Do the trustees at Yale believe that any classroom support of bestiality should be confined only to freely consenting beasts? Or is there any scientific evidence that all beasts (rather than only some beasts) try to escape being raped by humans in that alternative sexual orientation?
  5. Will the Yale administration be inviting another alternative sexual orientation to meet on its campus, called NAM/BLA – the North-American Man/Boy Love Association – for pedophiles and their small boy victims?
  6. How does this Yale bestiality sensitivity class fail to illustrate rival Harvard’s panning of the Yale tribute, “For God, for country – and for Yale,” as: “The greatest anticlimax ever written”?
