    Gay nudie pics, hetero nudie pics, whatever. What are you going to do, monitor their internet use for pornhub while they're at college as well? If I were you I'd be far more concerned about those credit card booths they set up outside every cafeteria in every university in the United States.

    Don't be obtuse. The question is, on what should they base their decisions about funding universities.

    It might be thought provoking (I haven't seen it).

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    that wasn't the question you asked. so i am not being obtuse i answered the question you asked. if you meant a different question then you should have typed it.

    they base funding on many things. in this case the state or someone in the state didn't think that they should be paying for books like this.

    i don't think you are reading her posts. she has stated if they want to spend their money or there time whatever.
    she doesn't want someone else handing it to them.

    i don't think you would take to kindly if someone tried to give you kid a graphical novel depicting sex scene's. i know i wouldn't. more so when i am being charged for it.
    hopefully by then i have raised my kids properly so that they know better.

    My response? Try purchasing the Bible for every incoming freshman, and I would bet Carjosse would have a different opinion.

    My opinion would stay the same. School has no business in the forced agenda business.
    Well from what I understand it is an introductory course, so I would say yes it is still appropriate otherwise I guess prospective students should only read childrens' books. Don't like it, don't go to the university or stop bitching.

    I'm reading her posts, and she can't control what people "hand them." I'm not saying she can't have an opinion about it, just that compared to concrete threats a graphic novel rates at the bottom.

    If I've raised my kids to college-going age and they can't react maturely to people handing them sexually graphic literature then I've done something wrong. One thing that kids of that age definitely need a strong talking to about is those damn credit card booths. Seriously, those things are a menace.

    No it really isn't and it isn't graphic either. Hell the movie is rated 16+ in Quebec and France. If by 17 you cannot handle sex in books in a mature manner, there is something wrong.

    I highlighted 'funding decisions' and asked, "Based on what?"

    A legislator who bases funding decisions on personal prejudices is stepping outside his job description. If you've decided to fund a university, write the cheque and be done with it. If you don't like what they do with the money, stop the funding. Don't presume to tell university administrators how they should do their jobs. What's next, cutting the funding that's spent on science texts that don't teach a creation myth?
