Dr. Miriam Grossman, a psychiatrist at UCLA, originally concealed her identity out of fear of losing her job when she wrote the exceedingly politically incorrect book, Unprotected- A Campus Psychiatrist Reveals How Political Correctness in Her Profession Endangers Every StudentHere are disturbing excerpts from the work, as cited in an article by Wendy Cook:

–        “My profession has been hijacked. I cannot do my job, my patients are suffering, and I am fed up.”

–        “Radical politics pervades my profession, and common sense has vanished.”

–        “These changes are the result of social agendas foisted on the campus community, and in my work at the counseling center, I see the consequences daily. Dangerous behaviors are [put forth as] a personal choice, judgments are prohibited– they might offend.”

–        “Attendance at ‘multiculturalism’ workshops to increase my sensitivity and inclusivity, and confront my sexism, racism, and homophobia, are mandatory.”

–        “During my years on campus, thousands of students have opened up to me, and shared their private lives. With some frequency, they suffer the consequences of our hook up culture: sexually transmitted infections– some have them, others have significant anxiety about contracting them; unwanted pregnancy; confusion, loneliness and heartache due to chaotic and empty relationships.”

–        “It’s bad enough that today’s freshmen arrive on campus having grown up with Friends and Sex in the City, brainwashed to believe in the ideology of sex without consequences. What’s worse is when our universities, and some health professionals, accept this risky lifestyle as unavoidable, and in some cases even promote it.”

–        “One study showed 57% of college women agreed that being promiscuous is a way to fit in, [b]ut I’m troubled by something different: a culture that dupes a young woman with the fraudulent ideology that they are like men.”

–        “Not that every man is comfortable with multiple casual encounters, but we have hard science indicating a young woman is more vulnerable, physically and emotionally. But that research doesn’t reach college students, and so when some of these women find themselves confused and angry after hooking up, they think there’s something wrong with them.”

–        “Instead of giving a false sense of security, we need to declare war on hooking up, and deal with these urgent issues with the same no-nonsense approach we’ve used in health campaigns.”

–        “When students see that we, the experts, are alarmed about risky behaviors, and have faith in their ability to make smarter decisions, then perhaps they will consider it.”

Thank you, Dr. Grossman, for speaking out in spite of personal risk.
