"The real feminist message should be that when you lose the ability to be responsible for yourself, you drastically increase the chances that you will attract the kinds of people who, shall we say, don’t have your best interest at heart."

"Puking in your hair, peeing in your pants, and engaging in dangerous behaviors have to stop being considered hilarious escapades or proud war stories and become a source of disgust and embarrassment."

"If female college students start moderating their drinking as a way of looking out for their own self-interest—and looking out for your own self-interest should be a primary feminist principle—I hope their restraint trickles down to the men."

"If I had a son, I would tell him that it’s in his self-interest not to be the drunken frat boy who finds himself accused of raping a drunken classmate."


...seriously?! Rapists don't "find themselves" accused. Rapists commit illegal acts of violence.

"Educating students about rape, teaching them that by definition a very drunk woman can’t consent to sex, is crucial…But nothing is going to be as effective at preventing alcohol-facilitated assaults as a reduction in alcohol consumption.”


In what world is teaching men “a very drunk woman can’t consent to sex” less important than telling women not to drink?

“The 2009 campus sexual assault study, co-authored by Krebs, found campus alcohol education programs ‘seldom emphasize the important link’ between women’s voluntary alcohol and drug use ‘and becoming a victim of sexual assault.’”

"Of course, perpetrators should be caught and punished. But when you are dealing with intoxication and sex, there are the built-in complications of incomplete memories and differing interpretations of intent and consent."

"Lake says, 'The biggest change in going to college is that you have to understand safety begins with you. For better or worse, fair or not, just or not, the consequences will fall on your head.' I’ll drink (one drink) to that."
