Some Angered Over Mankato Banners “Welcoming” Young Girls To College

As thousands of young women are moving into Mankato for the coming start of college classes, some signs that have been hung up in town have left a number of people upset.

The signs say things like “MILF drop off zone” and “Your daughters are in good hands,” which perpetuates rape culture according to Executive Director of the Committee Against Domestic Abuse (CADA) Jason Mack.

“Sometimes things like this happens and they think it’s funny and they don’t really think about what the actual consequences or implications are, such as reinforcing rape culture,” said Mack.

“Also, this literally can make people afraid. And the fact that it’s obviously referring to what could amount to a sexual assault, that’s really not something that’s funny or fun to joke about.”

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 1 in 5 women are sexually assaulted while in college.
