The College Fix reported that Ohio State University’s “Sex Week,” a seven-day event marketed as a “judgement-free, inclusive, relatable space” for sex education was funded in 2020 mostly through “crowdsourcing” and some partnerships with local restaurants, according to information that an event organizer provided to the news outlet.
Of the dozens of sex-themed events and meetings featured were workshops with a dominatrix as well as a woman who is a self-proclaimed “orgasm coach” and erotic writer.
Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness sponsored this event. According to its website, OSU’s Sex Week is designed for the purpose of “educat[ing] our community about sexual health in all its forms.”
“We believe that realistic sexual health is interdisciplinary, and includes non-traditional topics like LGBTQ sex ed, healthy masculinity, gender equality, and reproductive rights. We aim to connect to our peers through dynamic, comprehensive activities that are geared towards the needs of our community,” the organization declared.
The event’s Twitter account posted last month that it expected to raise $3,000 for the week’s events which concluded last Sunday, February 16. According to the school’s student activities portal, student organizations can “apply for up to $2000 or $3000 in programming funds,” but club president and founder Abby Rinderle informed The College Fix that the group was not using university funds to finance the project.
Rinderle said in email correspondence with The Fix that the school does not grant the highest level of funding to new organizations. “We actually are not eligible for $3,000 because we are a relatively new organization and you have to be established for a few years. We are eligible for $2,000, though we are not using any of those funds for Sex Week. We fundraise outside of Ohio State and partner with various Columbus organizations in order to make Sex Week happen,” Rinderle claimed.
Rinderle noted that the group’s funding came from multiple sources.
“The vast majority came from crowd funding. A small proportion came from restaurant fundraisers, where OSU has a list of restaurants that will allow any student organization to get a certain percent of profits from sales accompanied by a flyer for the organization in a given night,” she stated
Rinderle also mentioned that most of this event became possible because of volunteers.
“I think people are usually surprised by how many speakers simply volunteer their time. Everything is organized and run by students who are passionate about the topic. Almost all event spaces are on campus, and therefore free for students to rent.”
Rinderle opted to not specifically mention any of the community partners, “but they are all health-related non-profits or smaller Columbus businesses,” she claimed.
Instead of focusing on higher education, most colleges are either promoting leftist indoctrination or give organization that promote degenerate social behaviors free rein while eschewing traditional morality.
Will Josh Hawley be the Next Champion for an America First Foreign Policy?
America First May Have its Next Leader to End Wars Abroad
Does America First have a new non-interventionist champion?
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been viewed by many as one of the figures who could potentially lead a Trumpist movement after Trump, should Joe Biden end up being installed as president on January 2021.
Hawley has made a name for himself as a champion of Middle America and questioning the neoliberal orthodoxy on immigration and trade. Lately, Hawley has made a pivot towards questioning the interventionist conventional wisdom on foreign policy.
In early October of this year, the Missouri Senator called for the American government to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. Hawley tweeted, “Almost 20 years now in Afghanistan. Long past time to draw this war to an end.”
Hawley’s foreign policy has been a work progress over the past two years. During a 2019 speech Hawley gave at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), he questioned the nation-building policy prescriptions of previous administrations, demonstrating some degree of skepticism towards non-stop interventionism abroad on the part of the Senator.
That said, it remains to be seen if Hawley’s legislative record will fully match his rhetoric.
Hawley is a staunch China hawk, who fears the rise of China and is a strong voice against China’s expansionist efforts. Hawley’s track record shows that his foreign policy views are rough around the edges. Daniel Larison of The American Conservative is not as optimistic about Hawley judging by his votes on the Yemeni Civil War. Larison cited several of Hawley’s votes that may be cause for concern:
“Sen. Hawley voted against the Senate’s resolution of disapproval that opposed the president’s effort to circumvent Congress with a bogus “emergency” to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. More important, he voted with the president and most Senate Republicans against the antiwar Yemen resolution that would have cut off all U.S. support to the Saudi coalition.”
Nevertheless, Hawley’s comments on Afghanistan are a good sign that Hawley is catching on to the fact that Americans are tired of foreign wars. Politicians can change their views and behaviors. Hawley is likely recognizing that the America First movement is exhausted by the endless wars and wants candidates and elected officials who offer withdrawal plans.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, a fierce interventionist skeptic, maintained cautious optimism about Hawley. In a tweet, he commented, “All kinds of reasons to be skeptical of the authenticity here, but — purely as a matter of rhetoric — just imagine any national Republican speaking this way about a Dem administration even 10 years ago. The framework of politics is radically shifting.”

The jury is still out on Hawley. Regardless of flaws in his voting record, America First advocates should continue to push him and other America First leaning Republicans in the right direction. We should never forget that politicians are still receptive to political pressure and the grassroots holds the keys to political change.
Young senators like Hawley are the future of American politics and it makes sense for foreign policy restrainers to lobby them and push them in a direction that favors non-interventionism.
