How has sexual intercourse become so degraded?

 


I got 13 pages into the University of Minnesota’s report on football players’ sexual assault on a young woman last September before I had to stop for a time.

Reading the account of football players piling onto a young woman in a teammate’s bedroom was like witnessing a deer brought down by one wolf and other pack members rushing in to tear off a piece of flesh. The young men jostled for position, asserted rights to “my turn” and assaulted her two or three at a time while she clutched a blanket to cover her naked body. Even wolves wouldn’t instant-message videos inviting others to the scene.

The events of Sept. 2 encompass enough themes to supply a TV series material for a full season. The young woman downed four or five shots of 100-proof vodka before going out with girlfriends at 12:30 a.m. looking for parties. The young men, a high school recruit and several first-year members of the Gophers, exchanged instant messages bragging about “hoes” and “bitches.” They were so bonded that one player expressed more regret about trashing a teammate’s room than about the young woman they’d assaulted there.
