In both instances the author says the female participant visibly shook her head before kissing.“The instances I witnessed at the game encourage and condone sexual assault and a sense of male entitlement, at best,” the author said in the letter to Syracuse.com. “And they are an actual instance of assault, at worst.” Comments AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
