Rape reduction proposal #4

Practice makes perfect

"What's really going to make the difference is a cultural shift in male students' attitudes toward female students," concludes Hirshman. That's why we've brought in Frat MANers, an educational team that goes after rapists where they live: in fraternities. The photo above was taken at a Frat MANers-supervised rush week at Southwestern Georgia State. That's Mandy the Mannequin there in the teddy. The pledges have to drink a 12 pack of beer, and after each beer, an article of Mandy's clothing is removed. No matter how drunk and/or naked things get, the pledges must continue to address Mandy in a respectful fashion. And they must accept that no means no, even when they're talking to an unconscious figure. And that's just one of their innovative techniques. We have high hopes for the program's success here at SDSU."
