Scared, or scary?

India is supposed to be a country of sexually repressed people, isn’t it? And the US of A is supposed to be sexually liberated. The swingin sixties and all the rest of it. But just look how scared Liberty University* seems to be of sexuality and any expression thereof.

Even more scary (or is it funny in a hysterical, over the top kind of way?) is how ‘abortion’ and ‘Two or more individuals of the opposite sex together in hotel/motel room without proper permission’ are seemingly considered worse than racial/sexual harassment. So also witchcraft, and life-threatening behaviour. And a whole lot of other stuff: you have to read it to believe it!

Thank God I didn’t go there – I’d have racked up around $1000 in fines, and I was a good girl in college. Really. I wonder what would’ve happened to… ahem, okay, no names on blog. 

*Named for a town, apparently, not a value.

  1. why the emphasis?

  2. Hardly representative of American education, isn’t this? 🙂

  3. Mr. Nair: Bad question.

    Andre: Of course it isn’t! I hope not! But you must admit it’s scary. Or funny. Both?!

  4. Both, I think. Though I’m inclined towards scary. But aren’t such things common? Well, not common. Widespread. Certainly India has its share of freak religious/educational institutions.

    Oh, and I liked the asterisked footnote. 🙂

  5. Fair point. Doesn’t make it any easier to accept.
