WATCH: Trump administration rolls back Obama-era school lunch rules
College textbooks aren’t typically given a proper look. Let’s be real. When I was in school, hardly ANYONE looked at their college textbooks. They used them to study for tests, but anything beyond that wasn’t going to happen. Heck– if you could get away with skimming by without paying for the overpriced book, you risked it.
Perhaps we should be paying more attention to the material colleges are asking students to read, because some of it is quite disturbing.
According to this, there’s a class at the University of North Texas called “Psychology and Sexual Behavior.” A guide associated with the course book reportedly encourages students to examine “sexual interactions” between children. What’s worse, one of the lessons was titled, “Sexual Pleasure & Response In Infants.” IN INFANTS.
The textbook is part of a course titled “Psychology and Sexual Behavior” offered at the University of North Texas. That course made headlines last week when the news website Big League Politics reported on it, specifically what appeared to be a presentation in the course exploring “sexual pleasure and response in infants.”
Big League Politics reported that it obtained a copy of a “lesson plan” from the course instructor. That document appears to be drawn from the 13th edition of Our Sexuality, listed as the course textbook on the class’s syllabus.
One of the lesson plan “suggestions” involved bringing students on a field trip to watch “sexual interactions” between CHILDREN on a playground.
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.
“What kind of touching did children engage in?”
This class sounds like a sick pedophile’s dream.
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.
Still. At this point, that “suggestion” is associated with the book, which is sickening.
This is what some colleges are trying to pass off as “education.”
