The University of Oregon spent $24,000 to bring in a sex columnist, Dan Savage, to town to give a speech about sex. His speech included information about the sex lives of people who wear gorilla suits. The $24,000 speech provided in-depth intellectual insight — especially when Mr. Savage responded to one student’s question with “F*** if I know!” The University also hoped Dan Savage would promote their new college sex-game phone app. Ironically, the University has been very public about its sex life, but extremely private about how they spend our tax dollars since the $24,000 speech scandal was only revealed by a public records request from the local newspaper. The same University just approved 12% raises over three years, plus six weeks of new paid family leave. (Eugene Register-Guard 1-8-2013, Campus Faculty Association 10-13-2013)
