Duke Vice-President calls Sex Show Educational


In the last two years we have often observed the hypocrisy of Duke University Administrators in the handling of the Duke Lacrosse Hoax/Frame. So it comes as no surprise as news of the Sex Worker’s Art Show hit the press Duke Officials were left with another PR nightmare. How could they explain the conflict between the University policy of not allowing strippers on campus and what happened last Sunday night on campus when 300 Duke Students watched a sex show?

The Sex Worker’s Art Show featured strippers & self proclaimed sex workers who perform various acts from stripping, to a dominatrix leading a young man on a leash and pretending to masturbate with a large dildo while she humiliated & degraded her “pet."

(Click here to watch an excerpt of the educational video)

Last September Stephen Bryan, Duke’s associate dean of students and judicial affairs director explained the decision to ban strippers from campus events.
"It's a moral choice. We made a decision that a stripper at a campus event is something that we don't want to support." ESPN
Hypocrisy

How was Duke going to explain away the clear violation of policy in Duke's Bulletin of Information and Regulations? How was Duke going to respond when asked the obvious question why then was it wrong for the Lacrosse team to hire two strippers? Why were they chastised by President Brodhead and faculty members in the press and on campus when Duke had just authorized a sex show on campus? Why was Coach Pressler forced to resign because unbeknownst to him strippers were hire, yet here, Duke Administrators had done something much worst? They pre-approved it and it was a violation of their own policy.

Duke's Solution

The solution fell to Larry Moneta, Duke's vice president for student affairs, who said the performance "raised issues for discussion." Asked about the difference between the art show and the lacrosse team's hosting strippers, he said, "one served the purpose of personal gratification and the other had educational value." ABC

Educational Value?

On the web site of the Sex Worker’s Art Show it states the show entertains, arouses, and amazes. Clearly if Larry had watched the video of her “performance” one would question the educational value of sexual humiliation? Keva I. Lee is described on their web site as ”ball-crushing, whip-yielding, nipple-torturing Dominatrix! She’s learned the ropes and acquired more than a few tricks in her bag. She explodes and exploits stereotypes surrounding Asian women: dragon lady/ passive lotus flower, exoticism, fetishism, perpetual foreignness, language as a faux cultural barrier. She uses these stereotypes as an erotic tool for her own amusement and gain.”

After listening to the cheers of the 300 Duke students as Dominatrix Lee in her leather outfit riding her pet “pony” around in his collar on a dog leash we wonder what lesson was Larry referring to? What was the lesson taught while she simulated masturbation to the cheers of the audience yelling faster faster in Chinese? What was educational value of watching a topless stripper singing a lewd song about a Catholic Saint as she climbed a stripper pole? What value did a topless transvestite in a pool of kitty litter with a lit sparkler coming from his butt have?

Duke parents wonder that also.

How can Larry Moneta state the team had strippers for "personal gratification". Did he ask them? If he bothered to read the boys statements or listen to them, something we know Duke had no interest in doing, I think he would have discovered there was no personal gratification, but they attended the party for team camaraderie. You can argue otherwise, but then again, I think you can argue that Duke students could have been educated on new mastrubating techniques, by reading a book or searching on line. As far as celebrating the 4th, a celebration of our independence from an oppressive government, which is the only reasonable explanation for a sparkler in one's anus, I am sure there are other ways to learn about that. Duke continues to amaze with their hypocrisy! Violate laws, deny equal rights, presume guilt, deny due process in the goal of being politically correct. Now theses are the lessons that Duke is teaching its students. Clearly at Duke, some students are more equal then others.

At the recent UNC-Duke game, I saw a T-shirt that said on the front "Flush Duke" and on the back "send them back to the cesspool that is Durham." I think that fits rather nicely especially after reading about the sex worker show. And Duke pretends to engage in "higher education."

I wonder if the Asian students at Duke were amused at the Farrari (pronounced Fallili) comment?

No doubt they were educated to the fact that people do not belittle Asians when they ridicule their speech, they are merely expressing dominance and love.

With 300 attending this show - out of thousands of staff and students, it looks like a major failure of the event.

I only would have had a problem with the dominatrix act if she had called her "slave" something like a . . .

How low can Duke sink? I have stopped telling people that I went to Duke.Why is Brodhead still there?

another tactical manuver to get people not to see what is happening in the underworld. it goes all over the world, goverment colleges companies and cops mastermind and controls billions & billions of dollars and reaches unthinkable pockets, that much money always does. your wasting time debating other matters all it does is give them more time.research it and learn about trafficking and corruption then do something. look up public records, catch them cus they are not invisible

I'm still grappling with Moneta's explanation of the "difference" between the art show and the lacrosse team's hosting strippers.

Can I now assume that strippers, oh, excuse me, I mean "sex workers" are no longer banned from campus if their performance can also be shown to have some educational value?

So if the strippers or performers read poetry or tape political statements to their derrieres as part of their act it's OK with Duke policy. The possibilities are limitless but I think the Chinese lesson was a stroke of genius.

Don't forget that Larry Moneta, John Burness, Richard Brodhead, and everyone else in the Duke administration is morally superior to the rest of us, and we dare not question anything they do. If they insist that a transvestite with a sparkler up his rectum is education and artistic, then who are we to challenge these guys?

After all, we know that Brodhead and Company cared deeply about the truth during the LAX case, and that they never rushed to judgment or helped to frame innocent people.

Thus, we need to lay off them, as they are so morally superior (not to mention more intelligent) to the rest of us that we cannot even be permitted to stand in their presence, lest we profane holy ground!

Larry Moneta had a letter to the editor today in the N&O if anyone wishes to get the thrill of their life from a Duke VP.

AHHHH HAhahahahahahahaha....Duke.

Unfortunately, I am now embarrassed for Duke University where previously I would defend them till life was ended.

"Can I now assume that ... 'sex workers' are no longer banned from campus if their performance can also be shown to have some educational value?"

Perhaps the assumption should be that "sex workers" may perform on campus if, and only if, they do it with a heavy overlay of postmodern jargon promoting multicultural causes du jour.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think having a white male on his knees as a sex slave is degrading to all white males? Why is it OK for women to disrespect males and not vice versa? Doesn't Duke have a student code that requires respect for ALL, regardless of gender, race, et al? Where are the "rights" police and where is the outrage??? Switch this one around, woman on knees with male "master", (men cheering in the audience)or black male on knees with white "master" and it suddenly becomes some overblown symbolism illustrating oppression. Regardless, at Duke, everyone is valued and protected --unless you are a white male... The "Art" show is nothing more than a hard porn show - don't pretend it has educational vlaue, we are all not as stupid as the Duke Administration!

So let me see if I understand what the trolls are saying.

1/ The right of the boys to due process doesn't matter. What matters is the "right" of Duke to hypocritically hire strippers for the "educational" purpose of showing everybody how to stick sparklers up their butts.

2/ We who participate on this blog are all a bunch of idiots and cowards for

a/demanding that Duke hold itself to the same standards it held the boys (setting aside the whole guilty until proven innocent thing) and

b/ because instead of logging in under phony names such as "Tommy C" we mostly log in anonymously.

Am I right or did I miss something?

Yeah 3:21 They were not boys but young adults. Dave Evans - one of the originators of the event was 22
I don't think you are idiots and cowards but obsessed with an event that is over.

Anonymous said...

Excuse me, but what does "one of the originators of the event" mean? The originators of the event were Michael Nifong and Crystal "Meth" Mangum.

You still don't get it, do you? The boys were innocent. They were the victims of a malicious fraud.

People like you really, really need to have the same thing done to you; maybe then you'll have some sense of what you're babbling about.

"I don't think you are idiots and cowards but obsessed with an event that is over."

How is it "over?" This was the worst crime anybody could ever commit and the perps are walking free, in open defiance of society.

If this was a rape would it be considered over? No, but this crime was much, much worse than rape.

Anonymous said...

Tell the 22 nurses killed by Richard Speck that this is worse crime any could committ. Or the hundreds of young girls killed by Ted Bundy and to numerous to mention other killing and kidnapping. They will continue to walk free.

Anonymous said...

Those victims are dead and no longer have to live with what was done to them, but these boys will always have morons like you to contend with. So in terms of the harm done to the victims, this was indeed even worse than murder.

There was also a severe violation of the public trust involved here, so this went way beyond anything that Speck or Bundy ever did.

No, but you would rationalize Duke's hosting of this pathetic "art show." Hypocrite.

The money is grossly inadequate; no payment could ever be enough for what was done to these innocent boys. But there are plenty of sleazoids out there who would rather give the money to Crystal Mangum, so that she can continue to violate the law.

As usual the troll just has to have the last word. Only then can he crawl back into bed with his mommy.

But it really doesn't matter if it was two great big years ago; a crime has been committed, and will only be resolved when the perps are locked up in prison where they belong.

Believe me bitch, this issue isn't going away until that happens.

What is the big shock here? The families have every right to sue the city for negligence of an entire political system that failed miserably! This is by far NOT the biggest case to be media worthy, but one that has brought to the light of day a sample of what people in power do every single day and nobody even knows or cares!

Well, I am here to tell the WORLD and every entity watching, that As God is my witness I will not go to my grave without speaking out about the same system that has not only covered over my beloved brother's murder, but have mocked us, threatened us, and continue to deny us the right to know not just how my brother died, but everything that was done and NOT done!

I have contacted EVERY person their is imaginable, excluding the President, and still have been denied not just documents, but the right of a family to know how their loved one met their death, and to know what was done, and not done to his body!

We have been lied to and threatened by the Durham Sheriff's Department, have been shuffled through 3 years and 3 District Attorneys, countless complaints filed to numerous governmental agencies, even our own Congressman Dennis Kucinich, and STILL NOTHING!

We have sent our documents that we have been able to glean from the system to Mr Ekstrand, but due to his obligation to the LAX team is unable to represent us but would if he could! I have sent him, the FBI, and several others copies of the BLUE blood coming from an entrance wound, none from 2 exits wounds, a inconclusive and actually negative GSR screen, proof of fraud and collaborative deception, and have been to hell and back in this maddening chase to expose this city and system for allowing crimes against humanity to go unannounced, while innocent people suffer from the hands of the very powers who took oaths before God and man to protect and serve!

So, here my family and I are coming forward to beg the media to help us to solve my brother's death, and expose a system of debauchery and evils that not only baffle the mind, but leaves you breathless and speechless! I have tried and done all that I can alone, and now have 2 months before the state can be held liable for not just one mans death, but expose a system that feeds off the helpless, then leaves them for dead!

So, in closing I will say the purpose of this letter now on this thread is to also gain attention to the enumerable failures within the system, to right a countless injustice done to a plethora of lives that have been left completely devastated, and to make our government be held responsible and accountable for FAILING us the citizens, and the dead who have no voice but scream beyond their graves! The truth is worse than a nightmare because it is REAL and more HORRIFIC than you could ever have imagined!

Never could I have guessed such wickedness by not just individuals, but extremely organized and calculated, and failed by the very country and leaders we so blindly put our hopes and faith into! My heart bleeds for the truth, and mourns those who have been so wickedly tortured! My brother and countless others did NOT die in vain, and I will be damned if I will let fear keep me from Justice For Jack, but JUSTICE For ALL!

Imagine instead, your child or loved one MURDERED, and not only does it take Law Enforcement over a YEAR to send ONE single report, they LIE to you from the beginning, and not only REFUSE to do any investigating, but fail to adhere to ANY role of conduct and protocol, then threaten you and LAUGH at you?!



Yes, I have the utmost sympathy for the team, but let us not forget just how many OTHER cases have been corrupted by the exact same system! WHAT has been done to answer and solve the murders of my brother, Janet Araboa, and Michelle Young?! What voices have they now they are dead?!



Where is the outrage, and public and media attention for our families?! Nifong is by far the only knave on the long list of miscreant marauders who care nothing about rights of citizens, and care only for what is in "their" best interest! Wake up people and ask why the Department of Justice has not intervened, and why do our nations leaders just watch and do nothing about an abjectly corrupt and politically ran city?!



I never would have imagined what I now know, and am sick that nobody has taken our pleas, and heard our cries! Our loved ones not just dead, but murdered, and we will never see them hear them, or feel their touch ever again! Unfair?! Unjust?! Impossible?! The cesspool of corruption flows deep into a murky quagmire of wickedness that should expose our own government for allowing it to continue!



True and REAL crimes against humanity ranging from organized crime and drugs, to kidnapping, slavery, prostitution, and murders for global sale of body parts! Google human trafficking in organs, and learn exactly what is going on behind closed doors "the powers that be" never want to see opened! The reality is not only horrific and unimaginable, it IS happening every single day across the world, and Durham is just one of the many links in this chain of the grisly, dark underworld!



I have fought for nearly 3 years to restore my beloved best friend's respect, and JUSTICE he, and all of the others desperately deserve, and will never quit until something is done and things are changed! NOBODY deserves what mine and countless other families have endured, and for us I am begging the people and media to make a difference and care about all of the other serious matters that have fallen to the wayside for needless years!
