UNC’s new literature professor penned porno poems – about students

You just can’t make this stuff up. The University of North Carolina – Wilmington hired a new professor of literature. His name is Alessandro Porco (?).


He writes pornographic poems about his female students. Example:

“Who would say No to a gang-bang?
Who would say No to Prof. Poon-Tang?
Who would say No to my scholarly toungin’?
Thank you fathers for your daughters.”

The university supports him:

He “was hired based on his record of scholarship, experience, subject matter expertise, and references,” Janine Iamunno, executive director for university relations, told Campus Reform in a statement on Friday.

“[W]hile some may disagree personally with the content of an individual’s writings, the content of those writings constitute protected speech,” Iamunno added.”

    It is protected. However. So is speech excoriating this douchebag. So is speech in letterwriting campaigns and speech in phone calls to the university condemning his hiring. So is speech telling the University that you’re pulling your kids, and your money, out of their cesspool.
    Free speech merely means you get to say what you think. It doesn’t sheild you from the actions or consequences your speech generates.

    Our culture is increasingly filthy, degraded and worthless.

    Just because you CAN say something doesn’t mean you SHOULD say something. This SOB should be out of a job. Gentlemen,and Ladies, this is what our colleges and university have become. When I was taking a lot of Liberal Arts classes to get into The Writer’s Program here at the University of Iowa I got a lot of this crap and in most cases I spoke out against it. A lot of the times I pulled the TA aside outside class and told him that this shit could not and would not continue. There are sometimes it is good to be an “OLDER” student.

      Did it work for you, Ray? Did they try to get even? I have heard many times about students objecting to what they were being taught and then having their grades reduced for it or they were subjected to ridicule by their teachers in front of the rest of the class.

      • Ray Davies says:

        When it’s done away from the class they think twice about dropping the grade. Another advantage I had was being on the UI staff and not having to worry about a grade. I just let them know the shit would not be tolerated while I was in class. I think they were a bit intimated by age and manner,I was in my 40s at the time.

    Signor Porco Swordo should meet Lorena Bobbitt.
