OSU Is Fully on Board with the Sexual Revolution

Commenting today on the much-publicized Stanford rape case and the whole concept of "affirmative consent," Dr. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, makes mention of Oklahoma State University's interesting description of affirmative consent ("a voluntary, sober, imaginative, enthusiastic, creative, wanted, informed, mutual, honest, and verbal agreement").

Unfortunately, Mohler says, "once you abandon a sane, rational, objective sexual morality in terms of right and wrong and try to replace it with nothing more than a morality of consent, this kind of moral meltdown [which we see in the Stanford case and elsewhere] is inevitably to follow. ... American culture at large, and especially American colleges and universities, have launched upon a massive experiment in terms of human behavior and even human nature."

#ThunderPup


Well, Lincoln and I are coaching the Thunder.

Not that Thunder, of course. I'm talking about Oliver's YMCA team. Today we had our first game. Oliver had a robust cheering section:


We were so proud of him when he went coast to coast and scored:


Great job, little dribbler! It's as if he's been practicing or something.


Here's to a great season!

It’s a Sin: University President Denounces Action as ‘Morally Wrong’


There’s been a fair amount of disturbing activity in Oklahoma’s higher education system lately, but sometimes things reach a point where a leader has no choice but to speak out. So it was that University of Oklahoma president David Boren recently told reporters that a certain activity is “morally wrong”—even going so far as to suggest it is a “sin.” In today’s quiz, you the reader must identify which one of the following two-dozen items sparked Mr. Boren’s moral indignation.
  1. After becoming aware of a hip-hop artist whose lyrical stylings include “f*ck the police,” “you went to jail as a b*tch, came home as a dyke,” “these niggas was robbing your sh*t,” and lyrics much, much worse than that, OU agreed to pay him $40,000 to perform on campus.
  2. Oklahoma State University recently held its annual “Dragonfly” drag show in which students competed for best drag queen and drag king. The show “is adult in nature,” OSU has warned, “and is not recommended for those under the age of 18.”
  3. Before finally (after months of bad PR) reaching a settlement with a Holocaust victim, OU obstinately displayed in its art museum a painting stolen by the Nazis—all the while using expensive lawyers and complex legal arguments to prevent the victim from getting her family’s painting back. As one attorney, himself a self-described admirer of OU’s president, acknowledged: “Frankly, it is revolting to see our university perpetuate crimes against humanity committed by Hitler.”
  4. The student newspaper at the University of Central Oklahoma recently reported that UCO “will not deny access” to men wanting to use the ladies’ room.
  5. When the clock ran out on a student representing OU in a national college debate tournament, he refused to yield the floor, yelling: “F*ck the time!”
  6. UCO launched a new program geared toward “bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, intersex, asexual, queer, questioning, and allied students.”
  7. The OU student newspaper reported that some students are committing acts of sodomy in the library.
  8. OU has hired a new diversity czar at an eye-popping $220,000 a year to, among other things, oversee mandatory “diversity training” for new students, covering things like sexual identity, white privilege, and implicit bias. His office has created a “bias hotline” so students can anonymously inform on their neighbors.
  9. A young man who has threatened to “blow your brains out. You a f**k, n***a” enthusiastically performed for members of OU’s SAE fraternity. (And you thought hostile, racist, threatening chants weren’t allowed!)
  10. OU staffers set up a table in the student union to teach students about “safer sex” and provide free condoms for students.
  11. OU hosted a conference on “how to promote reproductive justice in red states.”
  12. “A night full of food and sex is a way some Oklahoma State students relax,” the student newspaper reports, so OSU brought in a sex educator to discuss the matter with students.
  13. OU is continuing its partnership with a hostile foreign power likely responsible for the largest cyber-attack ever carried out against our country.
  14. OU's “Assistant Director for LGBTQ and Health Programs” (yes, that's an actual job title) recently announced the opening of a separate-but-equal “LGBTQ lounge” on campus.
  15. An English professor at Langston University told an “evil” GOP lawmaker “f*ck you” over the lawmaker’s criticism of Obamacare.
  16. OU hosted a “YouTube star and sexual education activist” to give a speech devoted to “dispelling myths around basic human sexuality and removing the social taboos that lead to harmful understandings of sexual matters.”
  17. The Oklahoman reports that “the human resources director at the OU athletics department is complaining in a lawsuit that she has been discriminated against at work because she is black, a woman, and disabled.”
  18. OSU hosted a “trans homoeroticism” lecture and slideshow.
  19. The Oklahoman reports that a former assistant band director at OU has filed a lawsuit against a university regent, “accusing him of gender bias and using his influence to interfere with her employment.”
  20. Oklahoma taxpayers are being forced to pay for “social justice” activism via an “Activist-in-Residence” program at OU.
  21. The OU student newspaper distributed 11,000 latex condoms by attaching them to the front of the newspapers.
  22. “At OU, minority and female faculty members are outnumbered and receive less pay on average than their white male coworkers,” the student newspaper reports.
  23. UCO hosted a production of “The Vagina Monologues.” As the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute points out, “the vulgar messages inherent in this production glorify social deviancy, sexual perversion, and lesbian sexual assaults—all while condemning men!”
  24. Some Oklahomans believe that government subsidies to higher education should be reduced.

Gun-Control Advocate David Boren Can't Seem to Stay Out of Politics

"Anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg is on a mission to bring his New York City values to Oklahoma," Travis Couture-Lovelady writes in the Tulsa World.
He knows Oklahomans value their freedoms and would reject his efforts if he presented them for what they are—an attempt to impose his gun-control agenda on law-abiding gun owners—so he is using underhanded tactics to try and deceive folks. Bloomberg has enlisted local gun control supporters to sell his agenda as “common sense” gun safety. The point man for his insidious campaign is University of Oklahoma President David Boren, who sits on the board of Everytown USA, one of Bloomberg’s gun-control groups. Bloomberg and Boren are using influential business leaders to spread lies about a bill that would let voters amend their state Constitution. If the Constitution could be amended, gun rights would be strengthened.
The proposed amendment is "an effort to repair Oklahomans' right to arms," Oklahoma City University law professor Michael O'Shea has explained. But Mr. Boren—who just can't seem to stay out of politics—wants no part of it.
