All human culture is evil, tainted, since the Fall.

Some more evil than others.

True.  But all human culture is still evil.  If you seek God by moving from one culture to another, you will always fail.  God comes to us in His Church, which is beyond any culture.

I think there's truth to that. There's a very bohemian girl I know who actually me she only wears skirts and dresses.

In addition, despite it's supposed liberalism, academia can be very hostile toward women.  Academia is one of the few professions left where it's completely acceptable to fire a woman because she has gotten pregnant.  Perhaps my school was an outlier, but I was really shocked at the way male professors treated their female grad students.  And I am not talking about subtle sexism, but the you-better-have-sex-with-me-if-you-want-funding kind of sexism.   I didn't think that sort of stuff happened anymore.

That kind of stuff will always happen.

It's just human nature.

I was just really shocked to see this behavior in people who were supposedly liberal and pro-women. I know it shouldn't surprise me, but I really was shocked. Even more shocking was how many feminist scholars turned a blind eye to a lot of this abuse or even joined in it. It was very much good old boys club.

I guess what's shocking was not so much that it happened, but that things happened so overtly. I had a classmate who announced she was a lesbian, but it was widely believed she had only done this to stop advances from her advisor. I have no idea what her orientation is, but it says something about the environment that we all assumed she was lying about being gay.

There's no such thing as sexual "orientation."

I hate that PC lingo.

Are catholic eastern european countries any better? (Poland, Ukraine, etc)

If you have that as cash you had better hurry.  Obama and Bennie are printing like madmen.  Those dollars are eroding in spending power fast.

If he has $250,000 in the bank than I am Rick James, witch! 

St. DS,

You apparently have contradicted yourself in your new claim of having banked $250,000.  I seem to recall that you said you were 19 considering seminary or joining the military.  Perhaps you have quite the inheritance, but your posting doesn't seem to mesh with that situation.

Do you mean that your plan would be to move to Central/South America after socking away this?

That's the  way I read it. If so, he's  got plenty of time for research! LOL
