How much are parents paying in tuition at this school? Where’s the higher critical thinking in defending this kind of cultural perversion? And just who is championing this subject at the university?
The College Fix has the story:
UMich presentation appears to ‘dignify and redeem’ sex between men and boys
A presentation at the University of Michigan will deal with the subject of pederasty, or sex between men and boys, with the professor giving the speech apparently hoping to “dignify and redeem” what he calls “intergenerational modern pederastic relationships.”
The workshop, scheduled for today and titled “Pederastic Kinship: Deidealizing Queer Studies,” will be presented by Kadji Amin, assistant professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University, according to an event listing on the University of Michigan’s website.
Hosted by the university’s Doing Queer Studies Now “interdisciplinary workshop,” it will explore the “kinship form” of “modern pederasty.”
“To identify a relational form as ‘queer kinship’ is to implicitly dignify and redeem it,” the event listing reads. “What are the limits of such redemption? This talk tests the boundaries of the discourse of queer family by investigating a sexually, ethically, and politically dubious kinship form: namely, modern pederasty.”
And this is what students and parents are paying tution for, so the next generation can earn bachelor degrees, and go forth and lead/shape our culture? Here’s who leads that charge:
According to his biography on Emory’s website, Amin holds a PhD in Romance Studies and a graduate certificate in Feminist Studies. He was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in “Sex” at the University of Pennsylvania Humanities Forum in 2015-16.
His biography states he has researched “the disorienting effects of the queer and transgender past on politicized fields of scholarship,” and his upcoming second book “uses the history of transsexual science to rethink the priorities of transgender and feminist theory.”
So, apparently someone thought it was a good idea to hire a professor with this background at a major university, because why? This enhances learning and critical thought?
