The people pushing “comprehensive sexuality education” in your child’s school see nothing amiss in Tom Kubistant’s pedagogical methodology:
A college instructor at Western Nevada College is accused of requiring students to masturbate and publicly reveal personal sex-fantasies in order to pass a “human sexuality” class, according to a federal complaint filed in U.S. District Court last month.
Tom Kubistant, the instructor, allegedly forced freshman and late-high school students to “openly discuss their orgasms” and masturbate, according to the federal complaint, filed by former Western Nevada College student and aspiring social worker Karen Royce, 60.
Kubistant “locked the classroom door” and played a “90-minute movie… depicting females engaging in sex and having an orgasm,” Royce’s complaint says.
He also allegedly told the class, which included high school students taking the class for college credit, he would “increase their sexual urges to such a height that they won’t be able to think about anything other than sex.”
Kubistant “announced to the entire class they must masturbate if they intended to pass the class,” according to the complaint.
(Hat-tip: Ace of Spades HQ.) Kubistant’s course, entitled “Human Sexuality,” was offered by the Psychology Department at Western Nevada College and, according to the lawsuit, the “course catalog identified the class as having high transferability and relevant as to the areas of social sciences, education and humanities and public service.” The WNC catalog said the objectives of Kubistant’s class “have been aligned with the recommended outcomes from the American Psychological Association and the WNC requirements for freshmen level general education courses.”
Western Nevada College receives federal education funds, and students can use federal grants or loans to pay their tuition. Is Kubistant’s class the kind of “education” that you, as a taxpayer, consider a worthwhile expenditure of your hard-earned money? Are masturbation and pornography so vital to American society that they must be subsidized by taxpayers and taught by such “expert” instructors as Tom Kubistant?
Without regard to any social-conservative, religious, personal or moral attitudes toward the content of Kubistant’s class, isn’t there a limited-government libertarian argument to be made against this use of taxpayer dollars? Can you say, Higher Education Bubble?
