John Brown has some thoughts on Barry Dank and Consenting Academics for Sexual Equity, a group now under the umbrella of Academic Sexual Correctness (it also appears in the Daily Beacon).

Brown's comments are, to say the least, wildly speculative and inflammatory. I recognize the ethical concerns that come into play when faculty and students have close personal, even sexual, relationships, but that does not preclude me from appreciating the moral principle upon which Dr. Dank and others stand - that the University should not legislate the sexuality of its students or faculty.

It is a shame that John Brown did not approach the issue in a less sensational manner. It is not, after all, a breaking news story. Dr. Dank was organizing this movement over ten years ago, probably about the time John Brown was involved in much more important affairs like little league baseball or the 6th grade. Perhaps John Brown was not interested in doing anything with his writing other than stirring up paranoia and encouraging ignorant stereotypes. If he was, then job well done.
