“…women’s advocates at BU said bigger changes would be needed to address a pervasive “rape culture’’ at the school”
“My concern on a much larger level is that we have students on this campus who don’t know how to treat each other. We have students who have been in situations where they are sexually assaulting others. I want to make sure we engage all our students in thinking about and understanding the serious nature of such allegations.’’
Northeastern’s athletic director Peter Roby comes out in support of Knockout Barstool!
Men Can Stop Rape’s new College Bystander Intervention campaign.
laughinginflowers asked: Hey, I just came across this blog and just wanted to say, I fully support what you're doing. I go to BC, and signed the petition with enthusiasm today. When my brother (Northeastern boy) told me he was going to Barstool and I thought it was just another party, but then I really looked into it and was disgusted. I just hope he decided not to go. Keep prevailing! Rape should NOT be the butt of ANY joke.
Thanks for your support!
Some Boston College students have started a petition against Barstool Sports and their Barstool Blackout Tour, which is scheduled to take place for BC students on the same evening as their Take Back the Night event.
You can check out their facebook group here.
The petition is online here.
It’s awesome to see students at other schools rallying back against Barstool! NU students are in full support and solidarity with Boston College students. Stay strong!
