Is Clone-Sex on the Curriculum?
Via Dan Drezner, a fine-grained distinction:
"It's not sexy sex sex, where we're talking about whips and chains, but we will talk about whips and chains," said graduating student Robbie Morgan, 33, who left her job teaching sex education in Chicago to attend the Sexual Diversity Studies program, one of the largest of its kind in North America.
Morgan does, however, allow that "We'll talk about whips and chains in a political, social, cultural, religious context of sexuality and how that sexuality affects those institutions." And there you have it. Admittedly, I took an entire class on Eastern European science fiction (good class, too), so there's a lot of random stuff being taught.
