So my school has this thing called the “Condom Fairy”. You just go to the Student Health website and state your preferences. You can choose male and/or female condoms and weather or not you want lube. Then a few days later an envelope appears in your mailbox free of charge! Also with that cool little note about consent.
This is a brilliant idea
Starting next spring, they will teach a Lady Gaga course at the University of South Carolina:
The original course, Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame, was created and will be taught by Mathieu Deflem, a longtime USC professor of sociology and Lady Gaga fan. To the best of Deflem’s knowledge, this will be the only full-time, university-level course of its kind in the country.[via DailyGameCock]
“We’re going to look at Lady Gaga as a social event,” Deflem said. “So it’s not the person, and it’s not the music. It’s more this thing out there in society that has 10 million followers on Facebook and six million on Twitter. I mean, that’s a social phenomenon. It’s a global social phenomenon. So the central question of the course is, this fame, which is ironically also the theme of her first records, how can it be accounted for? What are some of the mechanisms and some of the conditions of Lady Gaga’s rise to popularity?”
I’m sorry.. But is it me or are American Universities getting weirder and more esoteric, or am I just used to Electives for a Bachelor degree actually meaning something and teaching something that might be NECESSARY for that Degree? And Yes I know this is probably an elective that is more on par for a B.Arts but really… WHY?
