    I don't think Rape culture had to do with the ban so much as it had to do with why any person would think it's okay to make these shirts at all.

    I have noticed that there seems to be a culture of young men thinking it is ok to rape.They have no problem with voicing this on the internet,making videos,posting pictures,or in music.What lead to this acceptance?How is this being taught that this is ok?I know rapes happened back when I was younger but boys/young men did not go around celebrating rape.This has to change.Females are at such a risk from so many things and I fear for our future.

    I think rape was defined much more narrowly when we were young. Young men certainly celebrated and bragged about "scoring" and similar euphemisms. The difference was that acquaintance coercion wasn't called "rape" back then.

    It could have happened anywhere, unfortunately. At least your alma mater took action.

    Very true. And to be honest, I think they would have gotten away with these shirts way back when I was there! Things are so different from even a decade ago.
