Superb Opinion

  • A prime example of why universities should not be free. If you got time for that nonsense I'm going to assume you have the money to blow on that for yourself. It's a joke and waste of resources. Looks like getting into college needs to be harder then it is now. It should be a place that the elite and most ambitious can attend, not just anyone. That's why having a college degree means really little now. You gotta ask what their degree is in and where they got it. Americans are getting dumber and both the left and right have had polls which show this. I bet the idiots attending the course don't even know what year the USA became a country or know anything about the civil war aside from "slavery", don't know what the emancipation proclamation is, or who JFK was, or know a damn thing about the first World War, couldn't tell you what state mount Rushmore is in, couldn't name the 13 colonies, who don't know anything about the Alamo or French and Indian War. The list goes on and on. They probably never even heard of Paul Revere. 🤦‍♂️

  • I disagree with the class for the reason that they WATCH porn in class and study it. I don't believe it's necessary to "partake" in something to learn how bad it is.

    On a side note, it's hilarious that any time something about Utah comes up, there's a bunch of people ill-informed enough to automatically think "Mormons".

    Perhaps a history lesson would be beneficial for the anti-Mormon crowd on here.

    Westminster College was founded in 1875 by the First Presbyterian Church. In 1974 they ended their relationship with the Presbyterian Church, and in 1983 they cut ties with the United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church--completely cutting all ties with religious schools and becoming "non-denominational". At no point were they affiliated or associated with the "Mormon" church.

    Only 67% of Utah identify as Mormon, so that leaves 33%, about 1/3 of the state's total population as non-religious or of other religions. Too bad most people won't read this and will continue on with their daily uninformed lives. 🤪

    • Hey thanks for this addition ^^

    • @TyLeeAndPink no problemo. I kinda feel like my bottom factoid should be automatically added anytime people start talking about Utah. 🤪

    • Lol, I agree

  • I mean I've heard about colleges offering classes in human sexuality, and I only know that because before I chose nursing I considered psychology and that was one of the required or recommended electives, one of the two I can't remember for sure. I would feel sort of weird taking a class like this, like everyone would be looking at each other like "I wonder why you're taking this class?", lol.

  • It doesn't affect me so I don't care. It doesn't hurt anyone so I don't care. If someone wants to take the course for credits I don't care.
    It just doesn't affect me in any way so that makes it pretty much none of my business and I have more of my own business to handle without getting involved with one that has nothing to do with me.

  • I already heard about this, about the study of it and basically how bad it is, and problems it causes. History behind it and so forth, seems like a interesting subject that has probably never been studied in college like this before.

  • Westminster is a Reformed Presbyterian name. Is that a Bible college offering porn⁉️

    • Most American colleges started as Christian schools. That doesn't mean they're still Christian.

  • I think it's kinda cool! It's quite a large step in dissolving the stigma around sexuality.

    • I see you post on a lot of questions like this Would you be comfortable giving advice?

    • @OnyxianGhostsLove What sort of advice?

    • sex/sexuality. Its related to things I've posted. You can answer those or just hit me up if you want.

  • The forsaking of cultural societal hypocrisy is LONG overdue...
    a recent internet meme rightfully observes...
    Historically "a parent CANNOT 'child-proof' the World THEREFORE
    they MUST 'world-proof' their Child."

    And one, cannot do that through
    promulgating the 'polllyanna artificially prolonging' naivete as 'innocence'.
    One merely sets their nubile child's nascent atavistic appetites and curiosity
    to make that child as 'prey'. Pragmatic Polynesian 'primitives'' begin their
    juvenile sexual experiences around age seven. Of late, the Dutch school boards
    have instituted candid visual sex ed. beginning in the third grade.

  • Well I was going to say why wasn't that ever offered at my college LOL

    Well I see that it's in Utah so it's in the Mormon state so I would have to say that it's probably a negative

    But who knows which way it goes I would be interested in just learning what's a class it's going to be. Learning I would love to know the professor's name I hope it's not big daddy and I would like to know what he's going to teach

  • What I find funny is that is says, "We will watch pornographic films together"... LOL... I will have to look up this college to see what it is all about. Obviously this isn't Bringham Young University... LOL

    • @arrowheadsw Yeah that me scratching my head a bit thinking "um will they be editing out the actual pornagraphic parts" lol.

    • @whirled_up_girl LOL Especially since most porn doesn't really depict normal sexual encounters. I can't quite picture sitting in a college class watching it... 😂

  • What do you think about this college in Utah offering a class about pornography?

    I’m willing to bet enrollment in that college & traffic to their schools website went up. On the other hand I’m sure a lot of people are going to fact check this one & according to other sources the class is set to open in May.

  • If I went to that class which I would NEVER!. I would be wearing a full face mask, rubber gloves, and a full insulated rubber suit.

  • An incredible waste of money

  • Sounds interesting!
    Seems more like a sociology class

  • It's just an excuse for a lot of teachers and students to watch porn. "Oh, I'm studying it. Yes, that's what this is. Research".
    Not that there's anything wrong with watching porn, as long as it's not the nasty illegal stuff.

    • As if college student don’t already watch pornography lol

    • They do, but now they have a legitimate (kind of) excuse if ever their mother suddenly walks into their bedroom and catches them doing it.

  • It's despicable. And also, pretty confusing. What exactly are they hoping to accomplish with it?

    • I’m pretty sure it explains it in the description

    • Maybe you're seeing something I'm not (entirely possible).

    • " discuss the sexualization of race, class, and gender and as an experimental, radical art from"

  • 1000% prefer Sunday Night Football, to be honest...

    • So you’ve never watched porn?

    • yes, I have... but not on the hardcore extreme of pornography and never surrounded by a bunch of dudes, which I assume this class is going to be... and not during Sunday Night Football being on, especially play offs... lol, hence the use of my word "prefer"

    • Lol.

  • This is a waste of money and has no form of merit for anything beyond college. More than likely just an additional class for the gender studies field or sociology to normalize things on a social context instead of preparing students for actual jobs.

  • Why not? It's a part of human culture.

  • I think it's going to be full of horny guys that want two easy credits

  • It has a high drop out rate, But some keep it in and give it their all...

  • It strikes me as sensationalism to make a quick buck for the university. There aren’t many topics which academics can’t overanalyze. It would have been more edgy and taboo 10-15 years ago, but now isn’t that special. Course descriptions are unreliable almost to the point of meaninglessness in most cases as they are more of a marketing tool than informative. If the professor teaching this class were better known or qualified or respected on their credentials and student feedback, flashy attention-getting courses like this would be unnecessary. It will still fill though.

  • This is... Kinda weird to be honest.

  • It's probably just a long class about the negatives about porn.

    • I dought it's anything more than that taught in Utah in a class room.
