Colleges are places you send your daughters to be drugged and groped by porn-brained men who played a sport in high school… and they look forward to it!

Important: essay-writing was the one big edge that American students had over others when I was in college.
Replying to @flaviusclemens
"Most people don't need those skills in the real world." Debatable—obviously no one writes the 5 paragraph essay in the real world (a wretched format, anyway). But the basic skills are often useful...

The film revolves around his coworkers trying to get Andy laid. All of their attempts fail: he is nearly killed when he agrees to let a drunk bachelorette drive him home, he is assaulted by weirdos and pervs on a blind date, and he is made to wax his chest (more on that later)

In one of the most important scenes of the movie, Paul Rudd gives Andy a box of pornographic films and other paraphernalia—at once a look into the sad and repulsive lives of modern men and a look into how much more accessible this material became only a couple years later.

Eventually, at the urging of Rudd, he asks out Trish, a woman who owns a ridiculous store selling stuff on ebay. With a sexual misstep—they are interrupted by her teenage daughter when they attempt sex on date # 1—they go out, agreeing to chastity until 20 dates. How cute.

Notably, the relationship seems to flourish without sex. He is loved by her kids, she helps him sell his collectibles on Ebay for massive cash, and they maintain some physicality. Meanwhile his work friends all hit the skids, with their relationships going nowhere fast.

The rom-com drama occurs when he resists breaking the agreement with Trish concerning date 20. He flees the scene in anger and the next night goes on a date with a local floozy. He leaves her, but Trish has found the box, yadda yadda, they make up and get married. Happy ending.

But then the film does something revealing: after the unseen "first time," Carell leans over and begins singing the 1967 "Hair" song "Age of Aquarius." All his friends join in, dressed in white linen, dancing in fields with ribbons, etc: invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=fdsCGm4b…

This is where the film truly becomes reactionary. The song sings of the new era the hippies of the 1960s thought they were creating, or more accurately, receiving. They anticipated the dawning of a new era of human existence, one of harmony, understanding, and total liberation.

Yet what has led him to this euphoria? He has married a woman before a priest (in a rather trad surplice, mind you) and on his wedding night consummated their love. He has, in other words, done nothing short of reject the sexual revolution's liberation and found happiness.

His work friends show what the Age of Aquarius has actually earned mankind. Seth Rogen is a weed-addled degenerate who takes what he can get; "Jay" is an unfaithful playboy with a knocked-up girlfriend; and Paul Rudd (the most sympathetic to us and to Andy) is a simping loser.

Carell rejects a life of easy sex many times in the film, but Cal's method is also rejected. Paul Rudd has his sexuality stunted, literally put into a box; he pines for a woman who isn't worth it and encourages Carell to get his chest waxed: to strip away his manliness.

We note that the film also criticizes the gynecocratic sexualization rampant in modern society. Carell is surrounded by sex, running away from ads and lurid TV; he mocks the obvious ridiculousness of the condom and he convinces Trish's teen daughter not to get on birth control.

(The latter is a particularly charged scene where he lashes out in anger and disgust at modern "sex ed" and the perverse parents who place their trust in these degenerate systems, earning the rebellious and risque daughter's respect and obedience: invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=ekrwAb--…)

Andy rejects easy sex, pornography, simping, contraception, metrosexuality, and domestication; he refuses to lose his chest hair; later he confronts Trish about selling his toys and demands that she respect his hobby; he stands up for virility and chastity against low perversion.

Notate bene: the toys show that their relationship without sex does not actually flourish, as he tries to change for this woman; he is trying to become a half-man, pliable and lacking any interest in sex (despite obvious evidence to the contrary in the film's famous first scene).

He becomes a full man only at the film's conclusion. Having asserted himself to the world and finally to Trish—only able to do so because he is not beholden to sexual desire—he brings the relationship to its fullest conclusion, on his terms, with sex manifesting marriage bonds.
1

In short, this is the most right-wing film in recent memory, completely rejecting and making fun of the supposed "liberation" of the sexual revolution (even, as shown below, mocking the film's risque nature).

Carell transcends the slavish and unmanly world of (post-) modernity; like Socrates and Aristophanes, he holds the judgement of the crowd in contempt, and mocks the conventions which none dare mock. Trish is surprised by him. Why? Because he is man according to nature alone.
