I bet these baptists/methodists(?) have a fine understanding of male sexuality and female sexuality. I am not a hard core christian but it is based on the concept that we all sin (non-denial of doing bad things) and should go from that point. “Saved a wretch like me...”
(both religious-based universities (although Emory has pretty much strayed).
You are a sweet guy, but this argument is absurd. Cute though.
And ...btw, many people don’t really give a flip about football. Universities in general do because it brings in money. Universities need the money (most of them) to pay their … instructors.
The article mentioned how Baylor has a student code of conduct regarding alcohol consumption and premarital sex that caused students to have shame about being victimized.
codes of conduct...every building ever has codes of conduct. schools, offices. mostly common sense.
Then do something to help. Stop watching sports.
Ha, already doing that, but still interested in campus issues.
Also, don’t blame “Christianity”. That’s lame and a bogus scapegoat. Blame parents. Or blame educational systems that we’ve had in place (with their already set in place sex ed classes) for decades. But hey, are you more interested in scapegoats or solutions? To paraphrase what a wise man once told me, “if you don’t also bring a solution for a problem, shut up”.
Blaming parents or educational systems oversimplifies it. The solution to this particular problem is for men to not rape, literally speaking. At Baylor, it looks like because of the local campus culture, young men were allowed to rape women, and the Baylor campus culture could be fairly defined as “Christian” in its self-defined way.
I see the “bad parenting” and “bad education” argument every so often. Always found it lazy when complex social issues, like what happened at Baylor according to the article, always already include themes of privilege, class, violence, money, race, sexism, as well as religion among others.
Oversimplification? It’s not “lazy”. It’s right. There’s a problem with people who think like you in that you think you’re smarter than you really are. Where does one receive the values and morals that equate to a civil society with far less (it will never be zero) rape culture (and other such dreadful things)? IT STARTS WITH HOW THAT NOW YOUNG MAN/WOMAN WAS RAISED. Good grief man.
