But the Governor was just bringing to light the uncomfortable truth that many college courses have no practical application. He was not trying to turn universities into vocational schools. He just wanted to highlight the fact that taxpayers and many students pile up enormous debt taking courses that are not worth their time or money.
Women's Studies is a case in point. Here are some of the courses given by well-paid feminist faculty to teach in North Carolina universities. I'm not making this up; these courses are listed in the college catalogue: Introduction to Sexuality Studies. Gender and Global Change. Comparative Queer Politics. The Social Construction of Women's Bodies. Assumed Identities. Race, Sex, and Place in America. Plantation Lullabys. Leadership and Violence Prevention. Spitting into the Wind: American Women, Art and Activism. Introduction to Gay and Lesbian Culture and Literature. Feminism and Political Theory. Women's Spirituality Across Cultures.
There are lots more of these Women's Studies Courses, but I'm out of time. Do you want your taxpayers' money to pay high-salaried feminist faculty to waste young people time and money with such courses?
