DISGUSTING; University Course Entitled ‘Sexual Pleasure and Response in Infants’
A college class and textbook that explores human sexuality, has made it a part of the curriculum to study the sexual habits of infants and young children. Yes, You heard that correct. A college class and textbook that explores human sexuality, has made it a part of the curriculum to study the sexual habits of infants and young children.
The coursework even includes students taking a ‘field trip’ to preschools to observe potential ‘sexual interactions’.
The course titled “Psychology and Sexual Behavior” is offered at the University of North Texas!
Insanity at it’s finest! When is America going to wake up???
Big League Politics has obtained a copy of the textbook, the 13th edition of Our Sexuality, listed as the course textbook on the class’s syllabus.
One section of the lesson plan, titled “Teaching Ideas,” suggests that instructors take students on a “field trip” to observe children possibly engaging in “sexual interactions” during recess hours:
Take the class to a local elementary school playground, or ask permission for a few of your students to attend various school playgrounds, preschools, or daycare centers during recess to observe behaviors of children. Ask students to note interactions between same-sex and mixed-sex groups. Which group was more frequent? Which behaviors were most frequent? What kind of touching did children engage in? What about teasing behaviors? Were there any overtly sexual interactions? What was the age range of the children being observed? Have students write a report comparing their observations with information in the text.
The College Fix reached out to the writer of the textbook. This is what they discovered:
Robert Crook, one of the textbook’s editors, passed away several years ago. Karla Baur, listed as one of the editors of the textbook’s 13th edition, told The College Fix that neither she nor Crooks had a hand in writing the instructor’s guide of the textbook.
“[The publisher] typically contracts out that part of a revision. From my perspective, this ‘field trip’ seems rather odd, potentially problematic and fruitless. I’m not aware of any professors having assigned it – but I’d certainly be interested in students’ reactions to the proposal!” Baur wrote.
Baur said she retired from editing the book after the 13th edition was published. She directed The Fix to Laura Widman, the book’s current editor and a professor at N.C. State. Reached via email, Widman told The Fix: “I can say that as an instructor I have never used that activity and I would be quite surprised if any instructor has asked their students to observe children on a playground.”
Widman told The Fix that she has requested that the activity be edited for future editions of the book. When asked if she had requested the suggestion be deleted from the book, Widman replied: “Yes, I would remove that activity altogether.”
The Fix also reached out to the course instructor, Terry Davis. They asked if she has ever taken her class to any local elementary school, and if she notified the school or schools in question prior to doing so. Davis did not respond to multiple queries.
There is much more at Big League Politics, and I would encourage you to see the resources they have gathered there.
And we wonder why our young people are wandering into weird territory!
