According to the course description, Language of Ladies "aims to take a critical look at dating across lingual/cultural barriers. Experts in each local will be brought in to the class for instructional purposes. Coming out of this class students should feel informed enough about different mating rituals to approach women of different national backgrounds."
Some students and faculty are uncomfortable, however, and are calling the class chauvinist and even racist. One concerned reader pointed out pictures on the course's Facebook group page that feature scantily dressed women saying things like "I make a great stocking stuffer" and "Like the United Nations...I am here to serve mankind."
The first lecture - which the Asian Students Alliance protested - was labeled on a Facebook event as "Orienting yourself for women of the orient." (This was not the actual name of the lecture.) Edit: The Asian Students Alliance was invited to sit in on the class in order to "verify its content."
