In an outbreak of rivalry among colleges at the University of North Caroline over which is the most diverse campus, UNC-Ashville recently showed a porno film to 200 students. Not to be outdone, UNC-Wilmington will screen the WOW documentary, TransGeneration, on September 14. The screening is a coproduction of the Office of Campus Diversity, the Office of the Dean of Students, and the UNCW Women’s Resource Center. As you already know, the documentary is not porn; it follows four students as they wrestle with gender transition and college studies over the course of one year. Two female-to-male, two male-to-female.
In a snarky column on townhall.com, Mike S Adams, author of Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel: Confessions of a Conservative College Professor, says he’ll attend the movie, and plans to ask a few questions, among them:
Is the Women’s Resource Center offended by the two women who wanted to become men? Will the two new men get their new hoo-hoo dillies from the two new women? How does that work, exactly?
When a woman has a hoo-hoo dilly surgically attached, does that not legitimize Freud’s sexist notion of penis envy? Is that something the Women’s Center really wants to touch – figuratively speaking?
In the past, UNC has spent tax-dollars to address the problem of teen self-mutilation. Why is the system now spending tax dollars to encourage self-mutilation in the form of sex-changes? Are we, a) having trouble making up our minds or do we, b) enjoy going in complete circles at tax-payer expense?
