Parents: How much campus smut are you willing to pay for?

Donors should ask themselves the same question

Yale University, which has something of a moderately prestigious reputation, later this month will play host to a musician whose portfolio is not exactly family-friendly or even dumpster-friendly: At the school’s Spring Fling this year, the rapper CupcakKe will perform several songs from her catalogue, among them perhaps “Doggy Style” (a song in which she spends a considerable amount of time singing about ingesting semen), or “Juicy Coochie” in which—seriously—she raps: “I’m 18 but got a tight pussy like I’m eight.” In another song, “Duck Duck Goose,” among yet more lines about ingesting semen, she sings: “I thought I came but I peed on the dick.” Great.

Here is a serious and important question for the thousands and thousands of parents who send their children to Yale every year: Do you want your kids to be exposed to such authentically perverted smut? In one sense, of course, it is out of the parents’ hands: Virtually every student attending Yale is an adult, and is thus beyond the authority of his or her parents, at least as far as attending a dirty little concert goes. Just the same: Many parents, if they cannot directly control their children’s educational experiences, are nonetheless paying for it, an arrangement that at least gives them some stake in how their sons and daughters spend their time on campus.

Parents paying for a Yale education, or any education in which the university willingly invites such trashy entertainment onto campus, have a right to ask their student-children: Are you going to attend a concert at which a young woman will sing “If sucking dick was a drug I’m overdosing like Whitney?” More broadly, they have a right to ask the university to which they are sending considerable sums of money: Why are you promoting such obvious filth? To what end?

Donors, too, might ask themselves the same question. One gives money to a university presumably in part because one wishes the university to cultivate a certain educational and cultural worldview. Yale’s wealthy donors—it has an endowment of nearly $30 billion—should ask themselves: If the university believes that “CupcakKe” is acceptable entertainment for its young scholars, what else might it be doing wrong—and is this something to which we wish to donate?
