Many students at Purdue University are angry about the latest installment of a regular feature in The Purdue Exponent, the student newspaper, WLFI reported. The feature is a cartoon, "Sex Position of the Week," and the latest such cartoon is being viewed by many as suggesting that rape is such a position. The student journalists say they never intended to condone rape, but students who created a Facebook group called "Tell Purdue Exponent Advocating Rape is NOT OKAY" believe that's exactly what the newspaper did.
