Taking the fight over sexual academics to Facebook

When he last appeared in the AJC two weeks ago, state Rep. Calvin Hill (R-Canton) had — before a House committee — backtracked a bit on his criticism of state universities that offer programs with a sexual emphasis.

Hill defended his interest in the issue but said he never specifically accused Georgia State University of doing anything wrong. He also said the media had blown the subject out of proportion.

“It’s been taken sideways by people who like the titillating words,” he said.

Apparently, Hill’s interest has been revived. On his Facebook page yesterday afternoon, the lawmaker posted this:

Exposing the Obscene Classes in GA Universities: You are paying for it!

They just don’t get it! Those off the wall folks that think I am gay bashing when I exposed classes on “Queering The South” at Kennesaw State and “ Queer Theory” at UGA, not to mention Georgia State’s experts in Male Prostitution, Queer Theory and Oral Sex.

I am exposing what your taxes are paying for. I have checked other state’s major Universities and they do not offer such drivel.

Perhaps this is why the American Council of Trustees and Alumni have rated the University System of Georgia with a big F. This includes an F for “performance as a criterion for funding.”

Why are our Universities pandering to the sex crowd? Georgia State is holding programs like “SEX? What’s your Position”, an interactive game. Or how about “Sex in The Kitchen”[?]

Hill offered GSU links here and here to prove his point.

And damn that media for twisting his titillating words.

It is obvious what State Rep. Calvin Hill’s intent is with his rhetoric: Turning Safe Sex and LGBT Outreach into something ugly and divisive among his constituency.
