I listened to Mark Steyn substituting for Rush today and discussing an Old Dominion University story about the frat guys that hung sexually suggestive banners across their private house to welcome the incoming freshman girls:
NORFOLK, Va. — Sexually suggestive banners hung from a home near the Old Dominion University campus have prompted a response from university officials, according to WTKR. The signs, directed at parents dropping off their daughters for school read:
Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time.
Freshman daughter drop off.
Go ahead and drop off mom too.
Naturally the white-knight president of the university had to ride his white horse to the rescue:
In response to the banners, Old Dominion University president John R. Broderick wrote a letter to ODU students, faculty and staff.
I am outraged about the offensive message directed toward women that was visible for a time on 43rd Street. Our students, campus community and alumni have been offended.
While we constantly educate students, faculty and staff about sexual assault and sexual harassment, this incident confirms our collective efforts are still failing to register with some.
A young lady I talked to earlier today courageously described the true meaning of the hurt this caused. She thought seriously about going back home.
Seriously? Let her go back home–anyone this fragile belongs in a glass bubble surrounded by medical personnel. I actually thought it was kind of tolerant that they were willing to take moms in too. Older women are always complaining about how men find them invisible. Here are some guys who found moms attractive and the response is to get them suspended.
Sure, it’s tacky behavior but it doesn’t warrant this kind of response. As Mark Steyn pointed out, this sounds like a prank that was tolerated in the ’60s but today’s SJWs have made the country, in particular the universities, a place of intolerant prudes. If women and white-knight university presidents are too fragile for this type of prank, they should have their own free-standing universities (asylums) where they can live in a bubble filled with other people just like them filled with unicorns and butterflies. These people are idiots and the frat guys are freedom fighters. Fight the good fight and stand up for free speech, even if it is offensive.
“Growing up in some places — especially liberal ones — makes people less likely to marry, new data shows.”
Update: Thanks to Mark Steyn for mentioning this post today, it’s important to spread the word about the idiocy of college administrators by calling them out by name and reminding people that we don’t have to take this ridiculous PC behavior.
