    It lies with the school, which obviously has no issue with this and likely finds it to be a good idea, since they are sponsoring it.

    Frankly, where your first assertion is concerned, the course titles and general tone in which the subject is being approached suggests exactly the opposite, in point of fact.

    The school is misappropriating public funds to advocate partisan political ideologies and promote deviant, and often dangerous, sexual behavior among its student body.

    Is that not "valid" reason enough to oppose it?

    Should the Rastafarians be able to host a "Ganja Week" touting the wonders of Marijuana next?

    Would that "benefit the academic environment" as well?
    Bull. They are using funds to teach students to have better sexual relationships. You have no evidence to prove otherwise. Titles of seminars that disagree with what you consider "healthy sexual relationships" are not evidence of anything.

    According to your completely subjective partisan ideology and worldview, and no one else's.

    Your lack of objectivity on this subject is duly noted. However, it doesn't change much of anything. The fact of the matter remains that this is a wholly inappropriate abuse of power, and the University deserves every ounce of bad press and legal trouble it gets into over it.

    Research shows that teaching children/teens/young adults about sex in a healthy manner reduces things like unwanted pregnancy, STDs, and unsafe sex in general. Talking about this stuff is good.

    Regarding contraception, the evidence is robust that sexual communication predicts greater sexual safety and the use of protection:

    It isn't merely my subjective partisan opinion that talking about sex is a good thing, makes sex safer and healthier. This is supported by research.

    I hadn't even considered the University's bad press and potential legal trouble for putting this sort of thing on.

    Can you just imagine if equal access were applied?

    So, again, Ganja, Binge Drinking, and "Gun Love" weeks, yes or no?

    Surely, the same logic applies there. Does it not?

    Hell! Maybe we should have a "drunken bar fight" week while we're at it! We clearly need to talk about violence, and the proper way to inflict it, so that we can prevent these students from hurting themselves, yes?

    Also, for the record, nice usage of weasel words. "Communication," as a generalized concept, is great.

    Communication in the context of "How to get laid," and "How to negotiate a threesome," on the other hand?

    Yea... Not so much. That's just your opinion

    Exactly. Where's "Marriage Week?"

    Where's the class on "How to negotiate a monogamous relationship?"

    Anyone who can't see the blatant partisan agenda at play here is either dumb as a box of rocks or simply playing stupid in order to avoid having to admit the obvious.

    None of those things can actually be shown to reduce something that a university might find affects students, like these sexual communication classes/seminars do, except maybe the "Gun Love" week, which I would be all for if the seminars included gun safety and training and laws and our rights concerning guns (did you assume that I am an anti-gun person?, I'm for responsible gun ownership and not acting like a douchebag with your guns, but still maintaining 2nd Amendment rights).

    You are not paying attention to the logic, but rather going off on your own tangents in relation to your own beliefs.

    There was not one entitled simply "how to get laid", but rather included more. And since there is nothing truly dangerous about threesomes or getting laid in itself.

    No, that is what you are doing. The simple fact of the matter is that there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to suggest that a bunch of classes instructing students in how to successfully acquire promiscuous sex and threesomes will serve to "reduce" much of anything. As a matter of fact, they are being deliberately marketed in such a way as to all but bash students over the head with the idea that they will actively promote deviant behavior instead.

    You're apparently "A-okay" with that simply because it happens to fit in with your political ideology.

    Instruction in safe sex is fine. Instruction in communication in relationships is fine.

    The ideological and moral context in which these concepts are being presented at this university, however, is not. It is inappropriate, partisan, and non-objective.

    That's frankly all there is to it.

    Are you trying to say that marriage isn't something that people learn about? I'm all for a seminar about building healthy, committed relationships, including marriage between all people. Willing to bet that was actually included in that week somewhere, just not mentioned since it wasn't something "sensational" enough to be noteworthy and ignored for the self-righteous outrage of the conservatives. If not, it isn't like we should be encouraging college students to actually get married while still in college either.

    Hell, this isn't even the first year some of these seminars have happened.
