A person is not a “PR disaster”—a person is a person. And a person who’s been sexually assaulted shouldn’t have to wait for an embarrassing and potentially financially damaging federal lawsuit, a critical mass of outraged bloggers, and the threat of disgruntled alumni (alumni = $$$) to shock their college administration into taking them seriously. Care for victims should be a more powerful motivator than fear of bad press. Unfortunately, in our current culture, it’s not.
