The C-Word at Wesleyan U By: Mike Adams
Townhall.com | Monday, September 06, 2004

If John Wesley were alive today, there is no doubt that he would be pleased with the quality of education students are getting at Wesleyan University.

Just a few minutes on the university website shows that Wesleyan deserves its strong academic reputation. Those U.S. News and World Report rankings just don’t lie.

For example, students at Wesleyan can join the “c*** club,” which was formed to help reclaim the c-word and imbue it with a new meaning. Some of the 35 original members of the student organization were upset that the word “vagina” translated to “sheath to a sword” in Latin. Because of the warlike reference, they decided that “vagina” would not be as good as the c-word. So they formed a club, convened a meeting, and sat around saying the c-word all night long.

One of the c-club’s founders told the school newspaper she “didn’t come to Wesleyan and think, ‘I want to be a Vagina Warrior.’” But she admitted that she feels like she has since become a vagina warrior.

At the first meeting of the c-club, the group’s aims were stated as “mak(ing) sure that women’s bodies are safe and sacred, get(ting) a dialogue going on campus, and hav(ing) women (know) how to be pleasured and to pleasure themselves.”

This involved organized activities aimed at helping c-clubbers find their clitorises. They also handed out vibrators on campus, held a sex toy workshop, and brought a masturbation expert to campus. Members also came up with a “vagina-licious song” and co-sponsored a “vagina art party.”

A “women’s only party” was also sponsored by the group. There, women painted each others’ bare chests and took Polaroid pictures of their vaginas in the bathroom (a strange development, indeed).

But, of course, it isn’t fair to judge Wesleyan University by the conduct of a few overzealous vagina warriors. It is also important to look at various speakers and programs sponsored by the university as a whole. And, not all of those activities focus on the vagina.

For example, one Wesleyan speaker (also an alumna) gave a talk at Wesleyan entitled, “My life as a feminist pornographer.” Co-sponsors of the event from the Wesleyan Queer Alliance informed the crowd that the guest speaker had “her own signature line of butt plugs.” The school paper said that no other Wesleyan graduate had ever achieved such an “honor.”

Instead of being a pornographer, this noted alumna had wanted to be “a dyke activist lawyer for the downtrodden.” But she credits a professor of History and American Studies for leading her into the pornography profession. You can trust that your children will get wise counsel if they attend Wesleyan University.

In addition to the signature sex toys, Wesleyan’s proud alumna started conducting sodomy workshops after graduation. There, she has even taught septuagenarians how to have anal sex.  People of all ages can depend on her expert anal-ysis.

And, of course, the school paper rewards the success of graduates, but only when they have really made it big. Wesleyan’s feminist pornographer was described in the school paper as “a great model for Wesleyan students.”

Naturally, all of this talk about sodomy and vaginas has raised some concerns at Wesleyan University. In fact, some people in the university community were offended by the notion that having a vagina automatically means that you are a woman. To combat that crazy notion, Wesleyan added a trans-gendered monologue to The Vagina Monologues (TVM). In the words of the play’s director, TVM “is supposed to be about vaginas not only women and those two are not necessarily the same thing.”

The student newspaper observed that it was “fitting” that the inclusion of a trans-gendered monologue in TVM became a “hot issue” at Wesleyan. The paper saw an important need to correct the “common misconceptions about the implications of having – and of loving – a vagina.”

I don’t know that much about the implications of having and loving a vagina. But I do know John Wesley would be ashamed of Wesleyan University.
