Did you know some Yale University students have had sex with animals? Three percent of Yale students in a “sensitivity training” workshop reported they had engaged in bestiality, so it’s taken us about 60 years to go from God and Man at Yale to Dog and Man at Yale.
This was one of the weird little facts I uncovered while trying to answer the question: How did Hugo Schwyzer get away with it so long?
Hugo Schwyzer is insane and is also a college professor, and one imagines his employer using this in a promotional campaign: “Pasadena City College: You Don’t Have to Be Crazy to Teach Here, But It Helps!”
Professor Schwyzer’s madness suddenly burst forth as headline news this month after he first announced that he was quitting the Internet and told L.A. Weekly he had suffered a “mental breakdown.” But then the professor went on Twitter and began spewing out a series of bizarre confessions, admitting that he was off his medication. His weird online meltdown inspired concerns for Professor Schwyzer’s safety and he was hospitalized again. He told the Daily Beast that he had been to the psychiatric ward three times in the past month and had suicidal thoughts. He told a Daily Caller reporter that he had made a “serious” suicide attempt.
As spectacular as his manic disintegration was, there had been clear warning signs for years that Professor Schwyzer was a sex-crazed lunatic. However, the red flags of mental illness were evidently ignored by the administration of Pasadena City College (PCC) and Professor Schwyzer’s peers, perhaps because sex-crazed lunatics have become so commonplace in 21st-century academia. . . .
UPDATE: Did you hear about the University of Georgia professor who had sex with a student during a trip to Costa Rica?
The sex was consensual, the committee concluded, though both parties “were under the influence of alcohol and/or potentially behavior-altering medication,” according to their May 2 report to Adams.
What’s amazing about this story is not that Georgia taxpayers spent money to send a professor to the tropics for a drunken sex romp with a coed. No, what’s amazing is that the professor lost his tenure over this incident. “Academic freedom” is under siege!
