I think I agree with this assessment–that professors should focus on subject material except where students come looking for mentorship, which, I would hope does happen, but outside the classroom.
The problem with this article: Chief amongst the learning men and women get from casual hookups at a fertile age is pregnancy. And what do we do there? Encourage couples not to learn, but rather, to abort the learning, all because sex seemed like a good idea after a couple of drinks.
Of course, abortion brings with it it’s own hard lessons. However, as any Silent No More woman will tell you, the learning remains buried often for many years (which is why many Silent No More women are already in their 40s, 50s and beyond).
Yes. Our hook-up culture does indeed allow us to learn. But I won’t raise my glass to that, because it’s a painful, tear-filled lesson for so many.
