In what probably started off as a well-planned inside joke, a recent graduate of Duke University emailed a Powerpoint (NSFW) entitled “An Education Beyond The Classroom: Excelling in the Realm of Horizontal Academics”. As these things go, her virtual “sex-list” went from being a joke between friends to a viral, public, internet phenomenon.
The writers over at Jezebel interviewed the author, Karen Owen, who apparently seriously regrets her decision.
“I regret it with all my heart. I would never intentionally hurt the people that are mentioned on that,” said Owen.
Honestly, the thing is worth a read. The Jezebel article includes a censored version of the document, for those of you want something a bit more easy on the eyes. I can’t help but wonder what would happen if something like this happened on my campus.
