Even after I give birth to my first child, I’m pretty sure I’m going to tell my mom and dad that I’m a virgin. It’s like, my duty as the fourth child of two Hardass Asian Parents (who, as far as I know, are also virgins). It’s how we roll, yo. We’re expected to avoid dating but marry someone rich and virile, have babies without ever making sweet monkey love, and teach our kids to do the same.
So the first thing I thought when I read on HuffPo that an Aussie producer put together a cast willing to auction off their virginities to the highest bidder for a reality TV show was: I’ll be damned if there’s an Asian-Australian on that show!!! Hardass Asian Parents would go ape shit.
Apparently, all of the parents are pretty unhappy about the show’s concept.

Up until today, Cal State-Northridge Economics professor Kenneth Ng had a website.

Not just any website, mind you, but a Thai sex-tourism one called “Big Baby Kenny” that took you through the, ahem, ins-and-outs of the “Thailand Girl Scene” and promised “No Hidden Agenda, No Censorship, No Bullshit.”
[By "Girl" he means "Hooker."--BULLSHIT RED FLAG #1]
But then people got wind of it and thought, SHOCKINGLY, that it was creepy and inappropriate and, what else? Oh right: creepy. Then Cal State-Northridge said it wouldn’t intervene or discipline Ng because he didn’t run his creepy site using public/University resources. A free speech debate ensued, with Ng as his own most vociferous defender. As he told the LA Daily News:
“I’m not going to let anyone make me take it down. That’s just a personality thing.”
And by “anyone,” Ng did not mean himself, apparently, because earlier today, he actually took down his own site [BULLSHIT RED FLAG #2]. NOT, as Cal State-Northridge’s Provost Harry Hellenbrand said in a statement “because [Ng] considered the subject matter and content as unsuitable for public discourse, public discussion, or public debate,” but “because of the deleterious effect it had on the university’s reputation.”
[Which never occurred to Ng in the entire year during which the site was up, when he was waxing economic about prostitution--"The Thailand Girls Scene is all about expanded opportunities. It allows you to do things that just cannot be done in 'The World' or lowers the cost so much that a guy with a normal income can do things which he could never afford in 'The World'"--a trade that engenders child abuse, violence towards women, and human trafficking in Thailand.--BULLSHIT RED FLAG #3]
No, the reason Ng took down his website is because it was just too good [BULLSHIT RED FLAG #4]. In the only post you can now find on Big Baby Kenny written by Ng–all others have been deleted (although his delusional, grandiose prose lives on in this gem)–the professor writes:

Hak-Shing William Tam, secretary of the Christian Evangelical Group called American Return to God Prayer Movement and official California Prop 8 Backer, testified as a hostile witness yesterday in the lawsuit to overturn the ban on same-sex marriage.
In a piece published today on the galvanizasian of Bay Area Chinese evangelicals in opposition to same-sex marriage, the NYT discussed Tam’s testimony,which was solicited by plaintiff’s attorneys to prove the success in passing Prop 8 was “born of virulent homophobia.” Though Tam refused multiple requests for an interview, the Times highlighted a selection from one of his widely-distributed Web essays, which basically argues that “acceptance” of homosexuality kicks off multiple slippery slopes to mass destruction.
“In a macro environment in which homosexuality is gradually accepted as being normal, child molesting by gays is gradually being viewed as normal in academia. Children who were subjected to sexual abuse only know to socialize with other men through sex. When they grow up, they would do the same to other children by molesting children of the same sex. Therefore, gay people grow in numbers even as most of them do not have children of their own.”
On the stand, his tone did not waver. HuffPo commented on some of his testimony:
