“Its shorter and you can find moments in it that telling females that you can find moments in it where its telling females that they can be sexy even if they’re not consuming and there’s sufferer blaming and its extremely triggering to a position in which a great deal of associates of our team have not carried out it even although its past because of.. its triggering and we really don’t want to total it.”
Organizers say they specially want the fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha banned. They also want Winthrop to cease mishandling sexual assault conditions and correct the corruption within the administration.
