Fascism at Smith College

I haven't seen a disruption of a speech this severe since the Minutemen were silenced at Columbia University in 2006.

An author named Ryan Sorba was invited to speak at all-female Smith College in Massachusetts about his book entitled The Born-Gay Hoax. About 15 minutes into his speech, lesbian activists began climbing through windows (am I the only one who finds that a little creepy?) and started shouting "We're here! We're queer! Get used to it!" Roll the tape:

I don't really care whether you agree or disagree with Mr. Sorba's premise that homosexuals are not born that way; that is not the point. The point is that he was an invited speaker who was brought there to give his point of view. These smug, self-righteous, cheering little fascists prevented Mr. Sorba from doing so.

More information about this travesty can be found here.

Good Day to You, Sir

When you spend $45,000 a year, I guess you expect popcorn with the entertainment.

Smith College keeps popping up for me--probably because I have an excellent former student who attends there. She wasn't impressed with my post about "feminized" engineering courses at Smith.
