Sorry, but I have to ask - do you face or have you faced problems with people turning up their noses at academic research about sexual fantasies? I don't know, because I'm not involved in that sphere, but reading "I published a paper on gay cuckold fantasies" elicited an automatic response of 'it's hard for me to take this seriously' even though I know that the work you do is perfectly legitimate and there's no real reason to laugh it off. What has your experience been in academic circles when sharing your research to those in different fields?

Is this your first time on /r/iama? Most of the posts here are ads. Self-promotion is exactly how this sub attracts celebs and interesting people to answer questions.

Idk, he's answered some more pointed questions on the schools unorthodox accreditation structure, the small numbers of faculty, the 2-year graduation rate, the large class size, the high cost, etc. This post is obviously an ad for his college but otherwise I don't see anything fishy here.

I'm a budding space nut myself, but theres something I dont get that maybe a higher-level space nut like you can help me with. How are private organizations like SpaceX doing so much better than NASA with so much less funding? Why couldn't it be NASA that designed the BFR and reusable boosters, for example? What is it about private organizations (thinking mostly about spacex here) that make them so much better at what they do? Would it be a better use of funding to give stimulus packages to private orgs?

And I won't do cases involving animal cruelty. Never.

But cases involving human cruelty, that's totally fine and everyone deserves a defense?
