Just when you thought maybe our generation was moving away from such disgusting things, a flyer entitled “The Top 10 Ways to Get Away With Rape” was found in the men’s bathroom of a Miami University dorm. The flyer is incredibly comprehensive, offering a guide for the modern man on how to slit throats, drug women and — as it says — get away with rape.
I would like to offer a fresh point of view on this story, but I really have to fall in step with everyone else bashing the complete moron who devised this list. It’s ignorant, repulsive and not even slightly funny! That’s the thing — when they figure out who’s behind the Top 10, you know the student will claim it was written in jest, that he does not actually endorse rape, yadda yadda. Get real, bro. I think the funniest thing here is that even he realizes he’s such a loser that no woman would voluntarily sleep with him.
While the university is currently working toward identifying this Prince Charming, student group Women Against Violence and Sexual Assault (WAVE) is spreading the word to students. I wish we all didn’t need to be reminded but, no matter where you go to school, be careful and smart when you’re alone on campus or attending parties. Travel with friends, watch your drink and look out for one another.
