Arizona State University offers female Women and Gender Studies students extra credit for not shaving their armpits

Yeah.

Arizona State University, perennial favorite for “nation’s least prestigious school,” is showing America why: students can now earn extra credit in a Women and Gender Studies class for being female and not shaving their armpits. One student—whose parents no doubt consider this either $6,000 (in-state tuition) or $10,000 (if she’s out of state) a year well spent—called her 10 weeks of stubble cultivation a “life-changing experience.”

Men are also allowed to receive extra credit, as long as they shave their bodies from the neck down.

    You mean to tell me the knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers in Women’s “Studies” normally shave their armpits?

    Do they get another one for not taking a shower and refusing to clean their teeth?

    @ Peter Blood: Apparently in Arizona, bless them.

    @ Sanne: Shhh! Don’t give them any ideas! 😉

    Peter Blood: Damn…I thought I was the only person living who still reads Rafael Sabatini! LOL

    As for Womyn’s Studies, you know the old saying: Sexism—only ugly bitches complain about it!

    I confess my ignorance; never heard of Sabatini till now.

    Sabatini was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad. Wrote some good yarns.

    I’ll have to look him up, see if I find some of his stuff at the library. Sounds right up my alley. 🙂

    He wrote the famous book about a doctor who became a pirate, Captain Blood, and another one about a guy who was an illegitimate son of an aristocrat during the French Revolution, Scaramouche or something similar. These are actually the only two books of his which I read. –

    Ah. I assume that’s where Peter Blood got his internet name. 🙂

    Yes, I think Captain Blood’s first name was Peter:) There is an old movie with Erol Flynn, it used to be available on YouTube.

    Yes, and I picked the avatar (Errol Flynn) thinking it was from Captain Blood, but it’s not. I think it must be from The Sea Hawk, another Sabatini story.

    Peter, are you a fan of vintage movies? Then you should check movie reviews on my blog, my husband sometimes asks me if I’m aware that movies come in colour these days:)

    Peter Blood:
    Besides ‘Captain Blood’ and ‘The Sea Hawk’ I’ve also read ‘Scaramouche’ and ‘St. Martin’s Summer.’ They made a movie on Scaramouche back in the 50s.

    Sanne:
    I’ll have to check out your blog I’m into vintage movies. Both novels and movies have gone downhill since about 1970…LOL (along with nearly everything else in the culture…)

    Eric, I’ve just done another movie review today, Beau Geste:

    I agree entertainment went downhill, that’s why I’m trying to promote vintage stuff on my blog.
