    An Experiment at Dartmouth | Education

    This was a silly idea 40 years ago. I am bumfuddled a college as prestigious as Dartmouth would fund such a thing.

    Your thoughts?

    Let's see...vague, ill-defined purpose; use of the word "dialog"; middle-school-level sexual titillation; waste of money -- yep, that's a college project, all right. :cool:

    I thought that Kim Jong Il was the President of Upper Korea, not President of Darmouth.

    So the Dartmouth co-eds got a mirror to look at their privates for some silly undergrad's social science experiment.

    So what?

    Why is this a big deal?

    I don't get it.

    Didn't they do stuff like this back in the 1960s and 70s as part of the Feminist movement? I don't think this is new or groundbreaking. :rolleyes:

    It definitely shows how dumbed down 'higher' education has become.

    The human body is a natural thing. (For the most of us anyway.) To be ashamed of a part of yourself or not being aware of your body parts is ... not right. The objective here might be ok but the method was wrong. They should have sent fliers out and those who wanted the mirrrors could have gotten them. Although how many will use them for the intended purpose?

    The cost factor is another issue but colleges get a lot of donated funds and this would have ammounted to less than $5000 probably. The cost of a couple of classes tuition, maybe just one there.

    Maybe she caught the scene from "Fried Green Tomatoes" and had an instant brain fart.

    It's much better that the girls use their cell phones and take pics O the Puss and download them on thier puters and the internet. That way they can get the useful second opinions. :lol:
