High School football squad has dominated the news in recent days. Seven players have been arrested for alleged rape - holding down four younger teammates and sexually assaulting them over a 10-day period in September. The community has been torn apart, players have lost their college scholarships and lives will forever be changed. So many questions are unanswered.
Why would teammates commit such heinous acts? It is very clear that these acts are vile and completely reprehensible. Take this particular case.

Now I think perhaps it might be more beneficial to simply not allow men to join the public sphere until they can prove with absolute certainty that they understand two basic concepts: respect and consent.
