    It's totally out of line.
    Even dh, who tends to be less ragey than me, immediately saw the issue.

    Rape culture aside, I don't know why they would even contemplate a frat theme. The main thing that Aussies think of would be excessive drinking, something that goes against RSA.

    Disgusting. There's no other word for it. I find it abhorrent that the hotel thought it was ok to go ahead with the frat theme and those sorts of slogans and DIDN'T think there would be any kind of backlash!

    Or worse, that they knew full well it would cause controversy and give more attention to their revolting themed night.

    I was really pleased to see on social media, the vast majority of posters slammed the hotel. Only one I saw was telling everyone to lighten up, bringing up leftists and feminists as insults. That only attracted a single like.

    It seemed to be a shift from the wicked campers incident when it was about 50/50 in support and then against the company.

    Default WDYT? Harmless fun or promotion of rape culture?

    Anything that normalises and parodies the rape culture is nothing short of disgusting and totally out of line.

    I'm not a prude by any stretch, but this is not funny and it automatically brought my thoughts to the American college campus scene.

    I remember how disgusted and rightfully so, men and women were at Redfoo with his collaboration on the song Literally I can't.

    It's vulgar.

    Stupid, not funny and tasteless.

    I'm not sure I agree with the rape sentiment personally but I can definitely see how others can.

    The party theme has been cancelled due to public complaints and they're just having a normal Saturday night.

    I'd love to know what's happening internally and if anyone is getting fired...I just can't imagine anyone with decency and a brain approving the signs!!!!

    I just saw a photo of another one saying: "you teach her morals and we'll teach her or*l" - it's just awful!

    Disgusting. Especially as I'm pretty sure a woman was assaulted there not that long ago. Anyone with half a brain would know the signs were offensive and their "apology" was total cr@p.
