Imagine your boss called you into his office and asked you these sorts of questions and subjected you to this kind of training. If you didn’t punch him (or her) in the nose, you’d have a good case for sexual harassment, among other things. This is what happens in academia when the inmates run the asylum. There’s a reason why there’s civilian control of the military; I think there needs to be more oversight in how colleges and universities are run.
