Reason number 7182 why (especially state funded) higher education should be avoided: science (…or something.)
Not even sure what this qualifies under: lesboceanic studies, innerseasensuality, anthroeconormativeness?
Earlier this month, a professor at Santa Monica College led students in an ‘EcoSexual Sextravaganza’ in which participants ‘married the ocean.’The event was “funded” by several campus groups with the main sponsorship coming from the university’s Public Policy Institute.
The purpose of the “wedding” was to bring about a deeper love for the planet through “ecocentric passion and even lust.”
The ceremony began with a former SMC student, proclaiming to those gathered, “today we stand upon this holy earth and in this sacred space to witness the rite of matrimony between the sea and us all.”
Next, leaders of the event distributed rings to the students, announcing “with this ring, I bestow upon the sea the treasures of my mind heart and hands—as well as my body and soul. With the power vested in us, we now pronounce you ‘married to the sea.’”
Some students then made their way down to the water, where they were urged by event organizers to “consummate” the marriage and “make love with the water.”
Because…it was super expensive to go make love to the ocean?
If it were you would you actually pose for the picture taken of the group?
