There was much shock and outrage over the revelations after a sting operation found out that a representative from Planned Parenthood was caught discussing the sale of the fetal organs parts from aborted babies on video. Senator Rand Paul, in another of his obviously insincere attempts to pander to conservative voters is working hard to block federal funding for the organization in a rare Sunday session. It is indeed morally outrageous to see how taxpayer money is being used to subsidize such organ trafficking but it is hardly the only truly offensive thing that the government is paying for using the dough that they shake us all down for. There is also the matter of – get this – doling out money for freaking masturbation classes!
As reported by investigative journalism website Reveal in the expose “GI Bill pays for unaccredited sex, Bible and massage schools”:
Iraq War veteran David Rodriguez steps into a softly lit classroom at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, crosses his legs and sits on a pillow in front of an altar decorated with a rope, a model of a penis and a statue of a Hindu god.
Rodriguez, a retired Navy lieutenant commander who led an engineering battalion that dismantled roadside bombs, is here for a class on “sexual bodywork.” When instruction begins, he will join his classmates in practicing different forms of masturbation.
“They do vulva massage and penis massage and anal massage,” said instructor Ariadne H. Luya, who holds a Ph.D. from the institute, an unaccredited graduate school founded in 1976 by an iconoclastic Methodist minister who amassed a large collection of erotic art and pornographic films, including child pornography, that is kept at the school.
“We want to get people out of their ruts. Have you been masturbating the same way for 20 years?” she asked rhetorically. “How’s that going for you? Would you like to try something new?”
Rodriguez is funding his studies with the GI Bill, which means taxpayers are covering his tuition to pursue a doctorate in human sexuality – more than $20,000 over the past two years. He says he wants to counsel veterans with sexual problems.
Back at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, the Rev. Ted McIlvenna, the school’s president, walks down a narrow hallway cluttered with erotic paintings and sculptures, pornographic magazines and reel after reel of pornographic films.
“This is where we keep the kiddie porn,” he said, pointing at a 10-foot-long locked cabinet. “You have to have a doctorate to open it.”
McIlvenna offered a parting gift: two etchings of naked women, a promotional poster for the 1978 X-rated film “Hot & Saucy Pizza Girls” and a DVD of “Pretty Peaches 2,” a 1987 pornographic film that the institute digitally restored. It includes a rape.
The gist of the piece is that we taxpayers are on the hook for a lot of pretty bizarre stuff through some unaccredited ‘schools’ that offer flaky curriculum and are outright ripoffs that are kept in business by a lack of oversight by the feds. There are a hell of a lot of things that I have very serious problems about what my hard earned, confiscated money is used for – for example, the government spying on me – but there is something very wrong about this particular institution and that we are forced to cough up coin for what sounds like a graduate school for perverts.
Like the trafficking in fetal body organ parts it makes one very queasy if they have any sense of moral decency.
