Porn Shows OK at PA School

CMUIf our previous posts about the University of Maryland Porn Controversy (here and here), haven’t sated your appetite for XXX news, we have more. This time, the news is from Carnegie Mellon University.

Today the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote:

Don’t expect heavy breathing or shady-looking patrons slumped furtively in their theater seats.

It’s true, “The New Devil in Miss Jones” is hard-core pornography. But several hundred students expected to settle into soft green seats in a Carnegie Mellon University auditorium April 26 are a different kind of audience, likely to snack on popcorn, laugh and applaud as they witness a controversial expression of modern culture.

“The New Devil in Miss Jones” will be this semester’s pornographic movie at CMU.

There are not many parallels between the University of Maryland and CMU. CMU being a private school means that it doesn’t draw funds from the state. This was the main issue the Maryland Legislature had with “Pirates II” airing at UMD, state funds being used to pay for porn.

The porn showings at CMU have been hardly controversial. Religious groups have complained in the past, but the school decided to allow the showings to continue.

At Carnegie Mellon, several students interviewed Friday had no problem with the campus screenings and said anyone who is offended need not go.

“It was pretty shocking freshman year when I learned that the school was letting people do that, but [now] it really doesn’t bother me,” said senior Sarah Hsieh, 21, an electrical and computer engineering major from Columbus, Ohio. “People think of it as sort of funny. It’s not taken that seriously.”

I wonder if Penn State students would have the same carefree attitude?

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
