University, teacher who ran website agree it tarnished school’s image
A Cal State Northridge associate professor who published an Internet guide to Thailand’s “girl scene” shut down his website Friday after he and campus administrators agreed it tarnished the university’s image.
Kenneth Ng, a tenured economics professor who created BigBabyKenny.com, said he concluded it was best to turn the site off amid criticism of his moral judgment and what he says was a mischaracterization of the contents.
“Unfortunately what happened with BigBabyKenny.com is the press got going and implicated me with human trafficking, pedophilia and prostitution,” he said in an interview.
The site offered a wide range of reviews and tourism advice about Thailand, but its main focus was on how to meet women in bars, including how to negotiate prices for sex. As Ng phrased it on the site: “Learn how to get banged better, cheaper, and more efficiently in the Thailand Girl Scene.”
University officials had taken the position that Ng was free to run the site as long as it involved his own time and resources.
