Washington, Apr 28 (ANI): A college in western Massachusetts has gone one step ahead by inviting a porn star to speak.
Williams College's speaker, Jiz Lee, is described in the college calendar advertising the event as "an award-winning genderqueer performer, author, artist and pleasure activist." Friday night, a sample of the performer's work is scheduled to be shown on campus followed by a discussion with students.
Some have been shocked by the graphic description of the porn star's talents.
"For me I think the biggest question right now is a matter of whether the event has academic merit or whether it has social merit," Fox News quoted Marina Bousa, a junior studying anthropology at the college in Williamstown, Mass as saying.
"What I really love about Williams is it's really kind of an exciting place to be.
"Even though we're in the middle of nowhere, we have these really passionate students who care about what they think and are willing and eager to create events where they can express their views and learn about things that Williamstown doesn't necessarily always have to offer.
"I can see why the event would be an exciting opportunity for that, but, on the other hand, I question its academic value," Bousa said.
College officials say they've received roughly a half-dozen calls from alumni and one parent expressing concern.
Critics of the porn star's visit have questioned the administration's judgment and funding of the event, but Williams College officials say the money is coming from a specific endowment received 20 years ago that focuses on education regarding human sexuality and orientation issues.
Founded in 1991 through a gift from Mike Dively, a 1961 graduate, the Dively Committee for Human Sexuality and Diversity is made up of faculty, staff and students who plan events each year.
Bisexual activists, gay athletes, transgender performers and a wide variety of others have been welcomed to speak. (ANI)
