I know we have some younger readers of this blog, so only read this if you're over 18. If you are under 18, maybe now's a good time to catch up on Terrence Howard.
For everyone else, you'll recall that last year I wrote about a female orgasm seminar at Harvard. Apparently Brown is in on the "fun" as well.
I can't possible go into all of the details here that the article from the Brown Daily Herald does, but I would like to add my commentary to this event.
I'm disappointed that feminism means to these people only that men need to learn how to please women sexually. I'm sorry, but to me there are much more important issues at hand, like ensuring basic rights for women around the world who don't get to vote, can't go out in public alone, and are forced to be silent. I also think the seminar was all-too-casual.
I wonder if the presenter from Planned Parenthood discussed STDs, safe sex, commitment, responsibility, etc. It seems that the workshop was focused only on one aspect of sex--pleasure. I dare say a more radical feminist approach would look at how men can respect, support, and love women.
