Default Sigma Nu Fraternity suspends ODU chapter after display of offensive banners

Quote:
The signs displayed at a home on 43rd street had messages like:
    • “Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time.”
    • “Freshman daughter drop off.”
    • “Go ahead and drop off mom too.”

The article quotes a number of people saying those signs threaten sexual violence (and those are the only signs shown or quoted), but I cannot see how they threaten violence, sexual or other, at all.

I thought those signs made it pretty clear what they wanted and that it really didn't matter if "baby girl" or "mom" was a willing participant.

Gotta agree with you, Sue. I think the subcontext is quite clear.

I mean, just the fact that they're addressing the fathers/husbands speaks volumes. Usually when I proposition someone for sex, I talk to the person I'm hoping to get naked with, not his mom.

I'm guessing ODU doesn't have a SAE chapter.
