Trachtenberg tried to hedge his remarks on drinking and rape by first noting that sexual assault victims should not be blamed, but he still asserted that women really need to learn to drink less.

"Without making the victims responsible for what happens, one of the groups that have to be trained not to drink in excess are women. They need to be in a position to punch the guys in the nose if they misbehave," he said. "And so part of the problem is you have men who take advantage of women who drink too much and there are women who drink too much. And we need to educate our daughters and our children in that regard."

Sexual assault on college campuses came into the spotlight this spring when the federal government launched an effort to compile better statistics and the Education Department announced an investigation into the way 55 schools handled sexual assault complaints. AsWashington City Paper noted, GWU was not one of the 55 colleges.

At least you don't have to look at these at bus stops. A few years ago someone in our government got the great idea to post these all over Britain.

Of coarse women have to be trained otherwise we may form opinions. 

Quoting autodidact:

I think he has a point. Instead of teaching girls to be lushes, teach them how to beat the shit out of any man that comes near them.
Most young women today can't cook a pot of noodles but they can play quarters with the football team to the point of blacking out.

Old white men shouldn't give their opinions about women's bodies out freely. 

First we drink too much

last year it was we can't get pregnant through rape. 

Maybe they should just shut up now befor they dig better graves for themselves.
