Not a helpful sign . . .

Someone posted this picture on Reddit and claimed it was taken at UCLA.  I get it: guys being guys and all, they might just "forget" and rape a woman.  Sigh.  What a wasted opportunity to make a real statement about rape. How about a poster like this:

Hook-ups + alcohol = trouble.
Friends don't let friends hook up drunk.

Alas, the people behind this sign seem more interested in stereotyping men than in doing something to help sexual assault victims. Yes, indeed, this sign would be helpful . . . if sociopaths paid attention to sarcastic public service announcements. Since it's a pretty good bet they don't, why not address the culture of booze-fueled hook-ups that are at the heart of the college sex problem?
