Sexist 'Welcome' Banners at Ohio State

August 25, 2015

Old Dominion University is not the only institution talking about "welcome" banners at off-campus homes that are sexist and that critics say make light of sexual assault. Ohio State University students put up banners at a house saying, “Dads, we’ll take it from here,” and “Daughter day care 2.0,” WCMH News reported. While many called the banners sexist, some of the male students in the house don't see it that way. Said one student: “People have been saying we are misogynists, we are sexist, we are degrading towards women. My dad, he is a good Christian man, I am a good Christian man, but we just do this for fun. We are not trying to cause any havoc or stir up any trouble, we are just trying to have some fun.”
