Boston University athletes sexual assault

Heard about this on NPR the other day- creepily relevant for us so I thought I would post some articles about it in reference to our beloved baseball player Sean. To me the controversy raises a lot of questions about male entitlement, especially in male athletes and how institutions will often wink at these kinds of abuses towards women. There have been 6 reported sexual assaults on BU females since the start of the year. I wonder how many more are unreported. It also raises the question of how women can protect themselves, it hits home that the man or THE MAN cannot protect her. She must protect herself- often times the only one on her side.
