This week, I noted an odd episode that has occurred with a state-run university.....requiring training....which is all computer-based....and at some point, it asks the individual about his sexual history and habits.
The college? Clemson, out of South Carolina.
The questions get down to asking you the frequency, the number of partners, and the general methods of sex that you do. Fairly personal information.
What the college says....I should note they are the only college in South Carolina requiring this...is that it's all necessary because of Federal Title IX rules.
So they built a computer-based one-hour training program which is supposed to prevent you from illegal crimes of passion (as federally mandated), and these questions fall into the requirement. Again, I will note.....this is the only South Carolina university doing this.
People answering correctly? I'd take an amusing guess that absolutely no one is putting down factual information. Some punk college kids are probably answer they do sexual activities at a rate of a hundred or more times a week.....and have at least three-hundred different partners (some imaginary). All of this data is then pumped into a report, and they will try to get various government funding to examine the further sexual nature of Clemson students (a fairly hot and lusty crowd, by the nature of the answers).
You could see some dimwitted questions being added, and this thing taking five or six hours in the decades ahead.
You could ask the punks about their fishing habits, and the lures they use. You could ask the punks about sugary drinks.....Tab, Dr Pepper, or Mountain Dew.....that they consume. You could ask about their driving habits (if they use the parking brake). You could ask about their consumption of moon pies or beef jerky. You could ask about their preference of deodorant, discovering that almost no guys ever use the stuff. You could ask about puppet preference (Ernie or Bert or Cookie Monster). You could ask about their fetishes....noting that a quarter of the women role-play and pretend to be Xena-Warrior Princess. You could even ask about their wiping habits....if they use one, two, three, or multiple layers of toilet paper when they do their business.
I'm guessing that Clemson recently hired someone with an agenda, and they are in charge of this mandated Title IX training deal. If you refuse to accomplish this by November....the college can toss you out.....so they've signaled their intent to force you play along. Honest actions by the students? No....don't anticipate anyone will answer truthfully. So it's pretty bogus, and then you start to wonder.....if it's bogus, why bother?
Yep, we've got problems in American education....but it's getting more and more creative, if you ask me.
