Item A surprising number of straight people are having same-sex experiences, study reveals

This is the official finding of a recently-published study, which analysed survey data from more than 24,000 undergraduate students. Research homed in on 383 men and 312 women, all of whom said that their last hook-up was with a same-sex partner. Of these respondents 12 per cent of men and 25 per cent of women identified as heterosexual.

According to the published abstract, there were a number of factors which differentiated these straight-identifying respondents from their gay, bisexual or ‘uncertain’ counterparts:

“Differences…included more conservative attitudes, less prior homosexual and more prior heterosexual sexual experience, features of the hook-ups, and sentiments about the encounter after the fact.”

Researchers then expanded by saying that some students claimed they hadn’t enjoyed their same-sex encounter, whereas others were just indulging in sexual experimentation in order to test their limits.

The only surprising thing is “surprising” in the title. This is the result of believing in “orientation”.

Item Betrayed by her own corporal: Foul-mouthed Army instructor faces court martial after his video of female recruit being reduced to tears is viewed 250,000 times

An Army instructor is facing a court martial after he filmed a female recruit and reduced her to tears in a shocking video that has been watched more than 250,000 times online.

Last night furious top brass were trying to track down the corporal, who may be booted out of the Army after using a phone to record the moment he subjected the distraught trainee to a torrent of verbal abuse during a bayonet exercise…

The instructor’s behaviour was described as ‘totally unacceptable’ by Lord Dannatt, the former head of the Army.

The disturbing footage is particularly embarrassing for defence chiefs as it comes just weeks after an advertising campaign aimed at prospective female recruits which said they were welcome to get emotional or even cry…

She cries uncontrollably and is reduced to a quivering wreck, before the instructor launches another verbal attack.

She and the other ladies will be fine under combat, though. They’ll tell the enemy that if they (the enemy) don’t behave they will be sent to sensitivity training. This is how England will reconquer the world.

Item Student Presents Thesis In Underwear After Professor Questions Choice of Clothing

“Strip, everybody!” said Letitia Chai ’18, as she stepped up to give her college scholar senior thesis presentation in a conference room in the Physical Sciences Building. Immediately after, 28 of the 44 people there slowly started to remove their clothes.

Chai led the demonstration Saturday morning after a clash with a professor earlier in the week, where the professor allegedly questioned her choice of clothing for a trial run of her thesis presentation on rehabilitation for displaced people and refugees.

“The first thing that the professor said to me was ‘is that really what you would wear?'” Chai explained as she detailed what happened when she tried to begin her presentation in her Wednesday section of PMA 3815 Acting in Public: Performance in Everyday Life.

Chai, who had dressed in a blue button down and cutoff jean shorts, said she was stunned…

A male international student in the class made a comment during the discussion that the speaker has a “moral obligation” to her audience to dress conservatively during her thesis presentation, at which point Chai left the room with two students following to comfort her.

One wonders if anybody threw dollar bills at Chai’s performance. This was at Cornell, which is no surprise.

Item 39% of colleges have 0 Republican professors

The latest study of American campuses shows that nearly 40 percent of the colleges surveyed did not have even one professor on their faculty who identified as Republican — confirming that liberal indoctrination in classroom politics is no myth.

In recently released research conducted by National Association of Scholars’ (NAS) Mitchell Langbert of Brooklyn College, 8,688 fulltime professors with Ph.D.’s from a sample of 51 of the 60 top-ranked liberal arts colleges — as ranked by a 2017 U.S. News report — were surveyed, and overall results reveal that for every 10 professors who register as Democrat, there is only one registered Republican professor.

“The political registration of full-time, Ph.D.-holding professors in top-tier liberal arts colleges is overwhelmingly Democratic,” Langbert divulged in his NAS article. “Indeed, faculty political affiliations at 39 percent of the colleges in my sample are Republican free — having zero Republicans.”

You cannot infer three are no Republicans from a sample containing none, but you can infer a low fraction. Also, there are more choices than what some of us consider to be a mono party, the Republidems or Democans. Yours Truly identifies as otherwise.


  1. Yay! More doom!

    You mean college students get drunk and do stupid things? You mean teenagers are subject to massive peer pressure and ‘expectations’?

    Filming basic training is unprofessional. Forcing the military services to accept women as combatants is unconscionable.

    If body shaming is bad, then clothing shaming must obviously be worse. Heinlein’s ‘crazy days’ are definitely here again.

    In breaking news, liberal universities are staffed by liberals. “Acceptance” and “tolerance” don’t mean of other political or moral views. At least, not to liberals/progressives/socialists/communists/whatever they’re calling themselves this month.

    Lee, what do you say to that?

    miss chai showed insensitivity toward other cultures. esp, those from which most refugees flee

    “She and the other ladies…tell the enemy ” remark: *when I cut and pasted it for clarity the formatting turned into a single line of vertical text taking up about five pages. Naughty Briggs is at it again. Setting little barbs and traps.

    The quote that won’t copy is silly boy talk straight from the playground so it does warrant a response in kind.

    Perhaps True faith or Sheri would like to join in? Big chief nockanpotty spends too much time writing about a country he’s never been to and pretends not to like. He’s fit right in.

    However England will conquer the world again unless the rest of the world develops a sense of humour. Some say (the Germans actually) it’s what won us the war. That and Tea. Those Germans who admit to losing!
    “Two world wars and one world cup, do da… “
