We have to create a culture of zero tolerance to ghetto behavior.
It is time our young men and women actually look in their heart and recognize how our culture does not treat women as mere objects of pleasure. Respecting other woman like you would your own sister of mother is not a sign of weakness or stupidity.
So, everyone needs to introspect and address this issue as it it is impacting everyone of us. Suppose you are not one of the people misbehaving at such parties or suppose you do not even to go such events, it is still an important issue to us. If we do not change our culture at this time few years from now your little sister would not be able to safely go to the parties. Not only that if we let bunch of young men get away with thinking that such a behavior is unchallenged, it is only a matter of time before these bunch will pull such a behavior at every occssion.
We need to discuss such issues at organizational meeting and encourage people to share their views. First step to solve any problem is, accept that problem does exist.
If you witness such a behavior and do not speak up because you think the girl was asking for it or you wanted to mind your own business, you are wrong. The least you can do it notify the security and point them to the right direction.
After such an event has taken place not us not act as if it did not happen. Use this forum board and other means to discuss this issue publicly.
