I can't believe this cretin is actually in college. What a waste of his parents money.

I really didnt think it was that bad. I dont see why people got so upset about this. To me its hilarious. Women need to be put in their place once in a while.

This is an embarassment to CCSU, the State of Connecticut, and the whole Connecticut University System. why is state money and student tuition paying for something like this? How safe is a campus that promotes rape, homophobia and racism in its papers?

Bobo - you are an idiot -- "rape wouldn't hurt if you didn't fight it"?? What!! Here, let me stick something up your butt and we'll see if your not fighting it makes it not hurt!!! Rape hurts emotionally, and if the woman is not attracted to the man (lubricated) it DOES hurt - idiot!

I just can't believe my eyes after reading this article! Not only that I am appauled, but shocked by this article. How can this idiot have the nerves to say that rape is something that is "magical" or something that was of a benefit. I am a 44 years old mother of three who was raped at the age of 16. The experience has caused me to do drugs at the time because I felt angry at myself & guilty because I didn't fought the assailant hard enough. It took many years for me to overcome this experience. The experience of rape, no matter how long it happened, will always scar your mind for the rest of my life, and for this jerk to print this article is not only a slap in the face to rape victims' integrity, but this person also raped our dignities. I speak out for every rape victim all across the nation, young and old, and of all nationalities.

Editors who do this sort of thing are the people who end up working for the National Enquirer.

I am writing this in hopes that this will be read by someone who can help me.
I would like this blog that is in response to "Rape only hurts if you fight it" to be deleted because Words DO reopen scars and to keep this up here is unfair!
I agree that the "satirical" article that was written by John Petroski was and is not funny. I am asking you to PLEASE delete this blog and erase the hurtful memories that this article brings up. The issue is OVER and instead of causing people more anger and discomfort by having this articles lying around the internet, let's put a DEAD topic to rest and DELETE this!! I see in this article that you were all about helping John Petroski realize his mistake. It is now many years later and I can tell you myself that he has changed and he IS a different man now.
I am John Petroski's wife and it pains me to see my own husbands name on google so many times for such a stupid thing he did in his past. PLEASE delete this article and show us that a person changing for the better CAN be rewarded for his previous faults.
And if you needed any more reason to delete it, then I will also add that this blog is libelous.
PLEASE DELETE IT!!
