Millions of parents will drop their kids off at a campus that sweeps rape under the rug this fall without even knowing it. And here's the good news: We can help change that.

Thanks for signing! Thanks for speaking out. We'll send your signature and comments to the Princeton Review right away. Thanks Nancy.

We have allowed the politicians to confuse the idea of rape. The whole "discussion" about legitimate rape has some how given the impression that rape is acceptable.

Colleges like to sweep this sort of thing under the rug, to preserve their "reputations".
Often it is the idolized Football players, or other Sports Team members - or members of wealthy and socially-prominent Fraternities, that rape at Fraternity parties. With heretofore impunity.
The "Old Boys' Club" of socially-prominent and wealthy and politically-powerful Alumni, have INSISTED on the Cover-ups.
This is a REVOLUTION, Women and Girls!
Really, a REVOLUTION in Thinking and in the Social World...
[The prevalence of Rape is nothing new, it's been going on as long as co-education and Fraternities and Sports Teams - but the TALKING ABOUT IT is what's new.... and doing something about it, is a completely new CONCEPT.... before, the targets were simply dismissed as Sluts, and that was an end. This is a Revolution that's been A LONG TIME COMING.....]

BMutiny is dead on right.
Phil -castration will have no effect as rape is a mind/power game and can be committed with any object

We must think about this logically.
I stated on another petition recently, that I thought the next area for the conservative old white boys club to stop women from becoming too independent, would be hitting women in education.
This is a perfect example.
If they frighten enough women from wanting to attend college, they will have achieved their goal. Can't you just hear the _dads_ telling their daughters, ' I can't allow you to go off to one of these places where you could be raped!'.
The words are ringing in my ears.

As women become more independent, in general, men are more threatened. Of course, we all know we are talking about the insecure men in our society.
In the minds of lunatics, RAPE is the main method of humiliating women and 'putting them in their place'.

Can you imagine, how different the situation would be, if men were the ones being violated? Our Congress would be passing bills right and left to stop women from any negative transgressions against them.
They are such hypocrites.

Please, we must never forget that, rape is NOT an act of sex, it is an act of violence.

Charlene: The "Conservative old white boys" and the "dads", did NOT start this movement against Rape on college campuses!
It was the YOUNG COLLEGE WOMEN THEMSELVES who initiated it - against fierce opposition from the "old white boys", I may add!
There have, in the past year, been NUMEROUS Petitions STARTED by College Women at several Colleges - I have signed SEVERAL. They have been on forcechange and on change.org, and on Care2.
This particular effort by "Ultraviolet", is the CULMINATION of months and months of Activism and Agitation.
That is how REVOLUTIONS get off the ground...
Most people outside of colleges, were never aware of this before, because it was hushed-up and the Women were silenced. Now the cocoon of silence has BURST open! This issue can no longer be avoided... that's become impossible thru these strenuous efforts.

Signed and noted thus: I can't imagine why any institution dedicated to educating and improving the lives of our nation's children would NOT also want to be known far and wide as a safe haven for ALL of them.

In my opinion, an institution's ranking ought include more than academics, a lot more. And I think all higher education colleges, universities, and trade schools would be as proud of their safety records as they are of their sport's teams. Any that aren't, well, aren't fit places for anyone's child to go. Teach children not only how to better our world scientifically, in the trades, in education but also in civility and honor. Those are things parents and children should consider far beyond the "name" of any institution. I do.

There seems to be a growing acceptance among too many young people (not all obviously) that rape is funny or acceptable or both.

I don;t know how that happened but it is shocking and sad and scary.

Kids who are away from home for the first time, drink too much and haven't been taught any rules or boundaries. Girls haven't been taught that they CAN say "No!" - boys are not taught that "No means No!" or that having sex while a girl is passed out or drunk and unable to consent, constitutes Rape, both legally and morally.
This is besides the more obvious cases of force, used by guys who feel themselves "entitled", since they feel they won't face legal consequences.
In many cases these kids come from homes where sex is not rationally discussed, or where Women are still regarded as "second-class" and as men's playthings.
Colleges are now being pressured to include education about Rape in orientation and materials for incoming students. Rather than "pretending this never happens".
We live in a Rape Culture - as can be seen every day in magazine ads, rappers, films and TV, etc.
It is not surprising that kids are "confused" - they get mixed messages.
If the parents don't inculcate the right messages, especially in their sons, then the college will have to. That is the ONLY way to create a "safe environment" for students. Getting drunk for maybe the first time, leads to the kids making bad choices. Cracking down on both the legal, and moral fronts, is the way to limit the harmful consequences.
And it is not the GIRLS, the Women, that should be blamed, as has been traditional in our culture where "Eve is the culprit!"

N/S/T with thanks Nancy.
I maybe should not mention this, but the R. party has been bringing up a lot about women. I just saw a video where a Sen (R) says women need to learn to take a dime and keep it between their knees. I feel that drugs and booze are more prevalent at College and University parties in today's world, and there appears to be more gang rapes at these parties. I want to see young men and women get the highest education that they can, but staying away from the parties may help somewhat.The problem with rape is that it takes girls awhile to get the courage to report it.
