No Sex in the Dormitory Room
Ahhh, how I miss the days of some good college fun. Looks like some folks think some Jacksonville University students took it too far. What'd they do? Installed a stripper pole in their room:
Several students at Jacksonville University have been reprimanded for installing a pole-dancing stage in an on-campus apartment and taking pictures as female schoolmates performed on it.But really, it's entirely wrong that these students are getting killed. Just ask them. They had no such intentions at all:
About a dozen female students, most of them freshmen and most of them drunk, competed for a $100 Victoria's Secret gift certificate Sept. 11, said James Foster, the 20-year-old junior from West Palm Beach who hosted the party.
Honestly, we just wanted to say we had a stripper pole," Foster said. "We never actually expected girls to dance on it."Umm, ok. And O.J. is searching for the real killers. Got it.
In any event, whatever their true intentions really were, I think it's pretty safe to say that their resident adviser spectacularly misses point:
"Resident adviser Amber Davis said the party degraded women. 'There are other ways they can go out and get a girlfriend, if that's what they want'"Who knows? Perhaps they were just providing the women with a place to prepare for paying their college tuition. Who said chivalry was dead?
