    Here is a letter written by a professor in North Carolina named Mike Adams. It was a rebuttal to a public accusation by a guy named Ed that he was the biggest embarrassment to higher education because he publically said that marriage is between a man and a woman.

    "Dear Edward:

    I want to take the time to thank you for writing and telling me that I should be fired from my position as a tenured professor because I am "the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America." I also want to thank you for responding when I asked you exactly how you arrived at that conclusion. Your response, "because you insist that marriage requires one man and one woman," was both helpful and concise.

    While I respect your right to conclude that I am the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America, I think you are wrong. In fact, I don't even think I'm the biggest embarrassment in the state of North Carolina. But since you are a liberal and you support "choice" -- provided we are talking about dismembering children and not school vouchers for those who were not dismembered -- I want to give you some options. In fact, I'm going to describe the antics of ten professors, official campus groups, and invited campus speakers in North Carolina and let you decide which constitutes the biggest embarrassment to higher education.

    1. In the early spring semester of 2013, a woman's studies professor and a psychology professor at Western Carolina University co-sponsored a panel on bondage and S & M. The purpose of the panel was to teach college students how to inflict pain on themselves and others for sexual pleasure. When you called me the biggest embarrassment in higher education, you must not have known about their bondage panel. Maybe you were tied up that evening and could not make it.

    2. At UNC Chapel Hill, there is a feminist professor who believes that women can lead happy lives without men. That is nothing new. But what is different is that she thinks women can form lifelong domestic partnerships with dogs and that those relationships will actually be fulfilling enough to replace marital relationships with men. I can't make this stuff up, Ed. I don't drop acid. Well, at least not since the late 1980's. But I promise this story is real and not an LSD flashback.

    3. At Duke University, feminists hired a "sex worker" (read: prostitute) to speak at part of an event called the Sex Workers Art Show. After his speech, the male prostitute pulled down his pants, got down on his knees, and inserted a burning sparkler into his rectum. While it burned, he sang the Star Spangled Banner. I believe that stripping incident was almost as embarrassing as the other one involving the Duke Lacrosse team.

    4. A porn star was once paid to give a speech at UNCG. The topic was "safe sodomy". After her speech, the feminist pornographer sold autographed butt plugs to students in attendance. I'm not sure whether the ink could contribute to rectal cancer. I'm no health expert. But I do know it was pretty darned embarrassing when the media picked up on the story.

    5. A few years ago at UNC Chapel Hill, a feminist group built a large vibrator museum in the middle of the campus quad as part of their "orgasm awareness week." I think that was probably the climax of the semester, academically speaking. But they certainly were not too embarrassed to display a vibrator that was made out of wood back in the 1920's. Keep your batteries charged, Ed. We are about half way done.

    6. A feminist administrator at UNC Wilmington sponsored a pro-abortion event. During the event they sold tee shirts saying "I had an abortion" to students who.....well, had abortions. That's right Ed. The students were encouraged to boast about the fact that they had killed their own children. That's how the UNC system is preserving the future of our great Tar Heel state.

    7. The following semester, that same UNCW administrator sponsored a workshop teaching students how to appreciate their orgasms. I learned art appreciation in college. Today, college kids are taught orgasm appreciation. I will let you decide whether that is an embarrassment to higher ed., Ed.

    8. A few years ago, a UNCW English professor posted nude pictures of under-aged girls as a part of an "art exhibit" in the university library. The Provost then ordered the nude pictures to be moved away from the library and into the university union. This decision was made after several pedophiles had previously been caught downloading child pornography in the university library just a few yards away from the location of the display. The English professor was incensed so she asked the Faculty Senate to censure the provost for violating her "academic freedom". The faculty senate sided with the feminist professor. The provost was later pressured to leave the university.

    9. A different feminist professor at UNCW accused a male professor of putting tear gas in her office. She as later caught putting her mail in a microwave oven. She did this because she thought people were trying to poison her with anthrax and that the oven would neutralize the toxins. She was not placed on leave for psychiatric reasons. Instead, she was designated as the universities official "counter terrorism" expert.

    10. And then there is Mike Adams. He thinks marriage is between a man and a woman.

    So those are your choices Ed. You can simply write back and tell me which of these professors, groups, or guest speakers has caused "the biggest embarrassment to higher education" -- either in North Carolina or in America altogether. Or you can just concede that our system of hire education is the real embarrassment because it has been hijacked by radical feminism. And please pardon any puns -- especially those that take the form of ms-spelled words."

    He should have taken it as a great compliment by these Orwellian liberals. You know like in 1984, good is bad and bad is good? By them saying he is an embarrassment they are saying the opposite of what he really is. Food for thought.

    Actually that is Biblical. In the end times good will be called evil and evil good. I wonder if that amounts to plagiarism.

    It would be considered an original idea in the end times.

    The "end times". Ha ha.

    By the way, I think Ron Paul is the unsuccessful antichrist.

    I agree with Ed. Mike Adams is the biggest embarrassment in higher education. Mike confirmed that with his stupid response letter.

    Really? You actually think that #1-8 have anything to do with 'higher education'? Do these Universities use #1-8 in their brochures they send out for recruitment of high school seniors show casing the fine 'higher education' that they offer?

    Ron Paul eh? Your probably right on that. What with all his voting while in office in acord with the constitution. What is worse is his continuous fighting for everyones liberty. Damn! I think you pegged him!

    Has anybody verified Mike Adams claims? Does anybody care? Why is it that Mike Adams didn’t address the issue of same-sex marriage in his response (except for the last throw-away comment under # 10)? For example, does Mike Adams think that the state has a compelling interest in legislating his definition of marriage (so far as I know, he hasn’t said so)? Does Mike Adams think that the rights of heterosexuals would be somehow violated by the state(s) allowing marriage of homosexual couples (so far as I know, he hasn’t said so)? Does he think that same-sex marriage is worthy of reasoned discussion and debate? (I wouldn’t use his letter here to claim that he doesn’t, especially since I don’t know the content of “Ed’s” correspondence.)

    Has anyone seen a copy of “Ed’s” correspondence? Perhaps its content and tenor deserved nothing more than Mike Adams’ sarcasm. Perhaps it did. Does anybody know?

    I agree that his position on same-sex marriage (though I disagree with it) does not make him an embarrassment to higher education, and that he is free to express his personal opinion—as are those who disagree to express theirs. Apparently he is a professor of sociology and criminology—and perhaps a very good one.

    I’m sure that Mike Adams will have plenty of supporters and detractors. Hopefully, they will both want more (verified) facts than are evident from just reading this one-sided piece of correspondence.

    You have to understand that higher education in the states, if not also in Europe, is dominated by narrow minded militant leftists. So what you wind up with are a bunch of arrogant individuals who shove sexual deviancy in every form and fashion down the throats of the students and faculty, while condemning any opposition to it as bigoted and intolerant.

    I prefer the term "obstructionist".

    In the mind of a liberal, you are either an all agreeing drone, a speed bump, or an obstructionist.
