Potomac Fever is the blog of the Hamilton College Semester in Washington Program.
Not that I don't necessarily disagree with those who objected to the discrepancy in tone between the two required seminars, but I find it a tad intellectually honest to not at least acknowledge that Hamilton has dealt with some legimately concerning sexual assault cases in the recent past.
And by intellectually honest I meant intellectually dishonest.
I think this better exemplifies a conservative fetish with turning any educational seminar into a battleground for the social war. Why note, for example, that Hamilton has one of the highest rates of sexual assault of any of our peer institutions. Well of course that would be irrelevant...
Do you think that all women fear all men? What a dark view of the world. What a strange message for which to require attendance.
