"Student educators who promote healthy lifestyles"



Larry Moneta, VP for Student Affairs, wrote a letter to the editor at the News & Observer

In her column Feb. 6, Ruth Sheehan criticized Duke University for allowing a show on human sexuality that has appeared at numerous other campuses and venues, including Harvard, William & Mary and Michigan on its current tour.

At Duke, the event was sponsored by a group of student educators who promote healthy lifestyles, receiving financial support from the Women's Center, Sexual Assault Support Services and other campus groups.

Duke -- like other universities in the Triangle and across the country -- routinely hosts shows and speakers whom some people find controversial. The fact that it provides a venue for an event organized by students through well-established procedures does not mean the university endorses the views expressed.

Sheehan asked whether Duke had a clue how such events might be perceived in the wake of the Duke lacrosse case. The answer is they should be perceived as evidence that Duke continues to be a community filled with diverse people and opinions, and one committed to academic freedom and free speech.

Humilating a young man on a leash is education? That's what perverts say. You can hear the cheers of the 300 Duke students as the The dominatrix rides her "pet" pony and then simulates masterbation with a strap-on to the chants of the mostly female students. This is sick stuff!

Try academic license. The place is in dire need of a purge..Lenin style..since they seem to be such great admirers of his. I take it the bot has totally abandoned the place.

So, the official word from Duke is that perversion is healthy.

Human Sexuality? PERVERSION IS WHAT I SAW ON THAT VIDEO!

We send them off with the hope they will continue to grow into adults away from us. But teaching them how to mastutbate with a large dildo chanting in Chinese wasn't what we had in mind!

What the hell is going on at Duke?

I always thought that academic freedom had to do with events in a classroom, or something taken for a credit, or a seminar related to majors, etc., but not a striper show on the stage in the student union paid for as a special event.

According to larry mobetta, i must be wrong. And really Mr. larry sir, who cares where else this show has been parading around the country. Must Duke jump off the cliffs that Harvard jumps off? According to you, the answer is yes.

I agree with the freedom of speech stuff, but this does not equate to Duke being committed to academic freedom(s). It just means that Duke tolerates screaming mimi's who want to see porn.

Can Larry explain to me exactly how sticking a burning sparkler up your anus will "promote healthy lifestyles"?

if he dies it will help somebody to make up to 200k for his body parts. companies pay billins of dollars and do it without you even knowing

I wonder if Larry "takes it up the butt". When he does, maybe he can report back to us and tell us about the health benefit.

wow. i've never seen comments by so many closed-minded young people! and you took the video wayyy out of context. it was a demonstration of what keva went through on a daily basis when being subjected to the asian fetish held dear by so many white guys.

tommy c. said...

and so many anonymous postings? are you really that worried your parents are going to find out that you've been reading about such "naughty" things? grow up already! you guys are all at least 18, right? and what is that silly open letter to your parents? your mother ain't here! and you shouldn't expect your parents to pay for school anyway.

Anonymous said...

tommy c....The main issue here is Duke's hypocrisy not what "naughty" things may have taken place on stage. Duke bans strippers and the show did feature strippers.

As consenting adults, Duke students are free to choose there own entertainment but Duke policy prohibits strippers. Many colleges do not have an explicit prohibition.

Also, using your logic, the strippers weren't really stripping but just giving the audience a "demonstration" of stripping. Puhleeze!

Everybody shout "Tommy takes it up the ass!" What a loser.

Larry's excuse seems to be that everone else (Harvard, W&M, Michigan) is doing it so what's wrong with Duke doing it too. Yet, when the Lax team did the same thing that 20 other groups did that year, they were vilified and their coach fired. What a bunch of f'n hypocrits!

don t. said...

Tommy is an imbicilic chain-puller...wouldn't pay him any mind. The only attention he gets is by making moronic, inane statements.

are you people that stupid? it is all deliberit to keep you busy with other crap so you don't look in to what is going on with drugs,hookers and stealing body parts for research and transplants. the lax case is small beans to what is underground LOOK

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know if Harvard, W&M or Michigan has a rule that bans strippers? Duke does. Duke violated its own policy. Maybe the other schools had no such policy. I read that NC and NCST have no such policy. Is Duke's explicit ban ( Bryan said it was a "moral decision"), exceptional?

Before calling people stupid, you might want to learn how to spell. (Hint: start with "deliberit.")

Anonymous said...

The spelling Police strike again - well, I guess when you have nothing to advance the debate, spelling critiques is an option.

The Pres of W&M just got fired. Could Brodhead and Steele be far behind? One can only hope. I don't care about the Sex Show and I don't think the workers actually stripped.

Just calling everybody stupid is contributing to the debate? First learn to spell, then learn to think, moron.

far from moronic sherlock just planting seeds alot bigger than duke, its all done as a smokescreen for blackmarket corruption

Black market? No, the corruption of the criminal justice system is right there for all to see. No smoke screen required when feminazi activists want innocent men convicted.

Hey Tommy C. Not only are our parents paying for our education,but they are also paying for yours through that phony diversity scholarship you've gotten. This shows that diversity is perversity

The point is the hypocrisy of the Duke faculty and administration.

Do you see the hypocrisy? Why not?

By the way, who is "Tommy c"?

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!
