Arizona students are conflicted – do women deserve rape, do women deserve grape, or does nobody deserve rape? It’s a tough one.
One Arizona student has it figured out though. Dean Saxton, a junior at the University of Arizona, created a stir on campus this week when he interrupted a campus sexual assault awareness event and started preaching against women while holding a sign proclaiming, “You deserve rape.”
Saxton, known for his on-campus Christian rants, told the Arizona Daily Wildcat that his sermon was meant to convey “if you dress like a whore, act like a whore, you’re probably going to get raped.”
“I think that girls that dress and act like it,” Saxton said, “they should realize that they do have partial responsibility, because I believe that they’re pretty much asking for it.”
Hmm. I think I’d rather ask for grape.
Others agreed, because the Dean of Students Office received a ton of written complaints, emails, phone calls – basically every form of communication. But Kendal White, the interim dean of students, said that despite the offensiveness of Saxton’s sermon about women, since he never directly threatened anyone, the school couldn’t take any action.
“We find it to be vulgar and vile,” White said. “However, it is protected speech. He has yet to, at this point, violate the student code of conduct.”
In other sermons, Saxton, a religious studies major, has ranted against people who are gay, have pre-marital sex, masturbate or have lustful thoughts. He’s also anti-Muslim – shocker.
Students can often hear him on campus shouting things like “All you homos, you’re going to hell. All you masturbators, you’re going to hell,” while wearing a T-shirt that says, “You deserve hell.”
I don’t know about hell, but I think I know someone who deserves a little rape…
