Like so many colleges and universities in America, Columbia has an egregious sexual assault problem. Fortunately, the administration has come up with a totally sufficient and effective means of eradicating sexual violence on campus once and for all: they're canceling a semi-annual concert over "safety concerns associated with drinking and sexual harassment." Way to go, guys! You did it! You vanquished rape culture!
This April, 23 students filed a federal lawsuit against the school alleging that the administration had systematically discouraged students from reporting sexual assault, discriminated against LGBTQ students in offering counseling services, failed to adequately punish students found responsible for rape and permitted serial rapists to remain on campus, among other allegations. So inadequate was the administrative response to sexual assault that students began restoring to vigilante justice, distributing copies of a "rapist list" containing names of repeat offenders whom the school had failed to expel.
