Sometimes, Assault Accusations are False. A Little Awareness is OK

Original Article

Diigo Post Excerpt:
The minds behind a crop of new posters displayed around the University of Alberta campus in Edmonton were undoubtedly looking for a reaction. They’re bound to get it, and then some. Hold onto your hats, folks; this might get messy. Riffing off of a successful anti-rape campaign in which men were warned not to “be that guy” (that is, ostensibly, he who commits a sexual assault), these new amended posters warn women not to “be that girl.” poster“Just because you regret a one-night stand doesn’t mean it wasn’t consensual. Lying about sexual assault = crime,” reads one of the new posters.
