Oh Help. Oh Help. Oh Help.


Here is a news item that I once might have made up as parody. It is hard, though, to imagine anything too absurd not to exist in a university.

Female Arizona State University students can receive extra credit for defying social norms and refusing to shave for 10 weeks during the semester.”

Accompanying the news of this enlightened policy was a photograph of the beneficiaries triumphantly exhibiting their armpits. The children were of course trying to shock, which is normal among adolescents. What once would actually have shocked is that the alleged adults in the alleged university encourage their alleged scholars in extended juvenility. (Stray thought:  Why are so many feminists ugly enough to make a freight train take a dirt road?)
