Rape Tips Found in Miami University Dorm Bathroom (Updated)


Update: The Miami University administration has decided to punish two male students for cooking up the rape pointers found posted in the dorm bathroom.

But the school has released little else in terms of info, according to Newsnet5. Neither the students' names or the details of the punishment is now known, although the handbook does suggests it could include "removal from residence halls, mandatory educational programs, and suspension."


With piss dunking and bus uppercuts, Ohioans are really rocketing into national headlines with quality behavior these days. Add this latest to the list: college boys outlining the 10 tips for successful rape. It's hard to imagine something as crude as this being serious, but just such a list was posted in a bathroom at Miami University.

“Top Ten Ways to Get Away with Rape,” was the name of the list, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. The paper was found in the men's room of a co-ed dorm. It includes a lot of charming suggestions like “If a womens window is unlocked sneak in and rape her to teach her not to do it again [all types of sic],” and “If your afraid the girl will identify you slit her throat [again, a lot of sic].” (Grammar does not appear to be a big thing at Miami — at least among would-be comedian-rapists).

When the list was discovered, school officials called a dorm meeting to discuss the incident. But campus groups are raising their voices against the administration, arguing the response wasn't commensurate with the violation.
