Northwestern U hosts event for female students who are ‘having trouble masturbating’

sex week

Campus Reform: Northwestern University is sponsoring an event for female students who are “having trouble masturbating.”

“Vulvas too confusing? Having trouble masturbating? Wanna please your consenting female-bodied friend?” asks the “Cum*tactics” event description posted on a college website.

The workshop will be taught by Early2Bed, a “feminist sex shop” in Chicago. It is not clear why Northwestern was concerned about the ability of its female students to masturbate.

The event is part of Northwestern’s Sex Week, which will also feature events on BDSM and a screening of “Unhung Hero,” a film about a man “born with a micropenis … on a fact-finding mission … as he confronts the stigma of having a small dick.”

The school’s Sex Week runs from April 7-12 and is sponsored by the College Feminists, the “premier feminist and only pro-choice organization” on campus, according to its website.

The orgasm workshop will be co-sponsored by the school’s Sexual Health & Assault Peer Educators group.

Sex Week organizers did not respond to requests from Campus Reform in time for publication.

More about this “higher education” event:

  • “We will have free condoms, lube and candy to help you get in the mood for all of our lusty events.”
  • “Sex origami, sex toys, sexy trivia, prizes and more! There’s a very small chance that you’ll have the opportunity to explore and experience all these sexciting things in one location again.”
  • “For our headlining event, feminist blogger Kara Brown will discuss the importance of Beyonce’s new self-identification with feminism, the necessity of a departure from traditional/academic views of the feminist movement, and the role of sex and sex appeal in feminism.”

Outrage over Northwestern’s bloody football jerseys honoring Wounded Warriors

uniform1

DailyMail: Northwestern University has sparked outrage after it unveiled special edition ‘blood splattered’ football uniforms, which the team will wear to raise funds for injured veterans.

The Illinois college released photos Monday of its Wounded Warrior uniforms, which the Wildcats will don instead of their usual purple for their upcoming home game against Michigan.

The grey jerseys feature accents of the American flag splattered with simulated blood on the helmet, gloves, pants and  shoes, and have been labeled an ‘asymmetrical patriotic mishmash.’

Where players’ names usually are, one of seven core values is printed: Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country and Service.

After the game, the Under Armour jerseys worn by players will be auctioned online, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors Project. Additionally, 10 per cent of proceeds from non-game jerseys sold will go to the foundation.

But the jerseys drew immediate reaction from online sports commentators and Twitter users. ‘Isn’t ‘flag covered in blood’ a little  on-the-nose for something honoring a group that operates programs for injured  veterans?’ Deadspin‘s Barry Petchesky asked on Monday. Meanwhile, Twitter user Jordan Pascale wrote: ‘Oh no no no no no. These Northwestern uniforms are not OK.’

But others supported the uniforms, with Bleacher Report columnist Jesse Reed describing them as ‘classy’ and  ‘sharp-looking.’

‘The men and women who sacrifice their freedom by serving in the military  far too often go unheralded for their exploits. Those who return home after injuring themselves in the line of duty deserve even more gratitude and praise, and any chance we have to honor them, we should,’  Reed wrote.

On social media, the jerseys were dubbed everything from ‘beautiful’ to ‘the most patriotic uniforms in history.’

Northwestern spokesman Paul Kennedy defended the design on Monday and apologized for any ‘misinterpretation.’

‘It’s a distressed pattern on both the stars  and stripes that was inspired by the appearance of a flag that has flown proudly over a long period of time,’ he said.

Simply Amazing Elephant Story. Must Read to End.

This is Truly An Incredible Story

FwDoElep11n 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.

As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.

Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.

The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn’t the same elephant.

Sorry, but I just had to.  :lol:
