Site name: bigbabykenny.com

Site theme: promotion of sex-tourism, gambling, economics

Site quote:
“Other Thailand Nightlife Blogs blow a lot of smoke and frequently play fast and loose with the truth to promote their hidden agendas.

Here we try to blow away the smokescreens other sites are blowing to obfuscate the truth.

All to serve the higher purpose of getting laid better, cheaper, and more efficiently.”

Operated by:
Professor Kenneth Ng
California State University Northridge (CSUN)
Los Angeles, California

Open Questions:

1) Are the faculty and administration of the CSUN College of Business and Economics, Department of Economics and the California State University system aware that Professor Kenneth Ng operates a blog which promotes sex-tourism and by his own words engages in
sex-touristic activities?

2) Are these institutions and authorities aware that engaging in and promotion of prostitution are illegal under Thai law?

3) Are these institutions and authorities aware that it is rare for nightlife establishments in Thailand to closely scrutinize documents supplied by potential employees, that identification which falsifies age is common among Thai sex-workers, and that an American who enters into a place of prostitution or engages the services of a prostitute has a significant likelihood of being in violation of provisions of 18 U.S.C. ยง 2252(B)(b), the The PROTECT Act of 2003?

4) Has it been established if Professor Ng has been misusing computer equipment and networks which are the property of the CSUN College of Business and Economics, Department of Economics and the California State University system to engage in blogging on and promotion of sex-tourism in Thailand?

5) If it can be established that Professor Ng has been misusing computer equipment and networks which are the property of these institutions and authorities, and as the bigbabykenny.com hosts paid commercial advertisements, does this constitute a violation of CSUN Policy 900-04 regarding Commercially Oriented Activity?

6) Can it be established that prior notification has been made to the appropriate authorities within the CSUN College of Business and Economics, Department of Economics and the California State University system regarding the activities of Professor Kenneth Ng and they chose a course of denial and inaction?

7) Is it possible for Professor Ng to disprove by an examination of his passport that he was in Thailand during the time he was
photographed in the Duke of Wellington Pub and/or the dates on which images posted on the bigbabykenny.com website were taken inside other establishments (“G-clubs”) which are acknowledged by the author, Kenneth Ng, as places of prostitution?

8) What would be the potential impact on CSUN and the other entities involved if media focus from local press (LA Times, etc.), national broadcast media (Fox News, etc.) or internet (Huffington Post, etc.) were to be brought upon them?

Other illustrations-

“FYI, for those who don’t wish to descend into the muck, Prof. Kenneth Ng’s hobby site at bigbabykenny.com is devoted to the promotion of sex-tourism, youth-focused sexual exploitation and other illegal acts. Wholly unacceptable in academia, a blight on CSUN and, most
pathetically, he can’t even grasp the economics of the pay-for-play marketplace.”

“I was shocked to find out that Professor Ng runs a website called bigbabykenny.com. He should be tossed but he’s tenured and the university is hiding behind freedom of speech. I would not want my daughter being around this guy for sure.”
