    BREAKING: DOE's Office for Civil Rights to investigate Yale for "hostile sexual environment" | Yale Daily News


    This students summed it up pretty well: No mention of the pundits. No mention of the university sponsored "sex week," that, while it features talks and workshops on a variety of topics, no doubt also features events that definitely make some on this campus uncomfortable. No mention of YDN comics describing sexual acts including "spreading manure" and "role playing as cows" (see today's comics - homo or hetero, there are some things best left unsaid and role playing as cows is one of them).

    Seems to me this is a witch hunt aimed at men, athletes, and fraternities. I agree there is a hostile sexual climate on campus, but it is a direct product of the move from romance to a hook-up culture, in which we're all complicit - men, women, athletes, LGBQT - everyone.



    What should or could school officials do about it?

    DOE is the Dept of Energy. Made the thread title very confusin.

    ED or even DoED is the abbreviation for the Education Department.

    People in the education field refer to the Dept of Education as the DOE. This was not in the energy forum. Sheez.
