    This is ridiculous. You can’t tell a dang sexual assault or a rape story without graphic details because those crimes against women are graphic not “artful” or about decorum. OMG. And Amazing Grace lines? Really? Spare me the rhetoric there. I mean I get the metaphor about blindness in the greek tragedy and not being gratuitous, but I think this male professor is putting forth more weak reasoning and nothing real for students of journalism.

    A lesson in “decorum” might be the male professor not using a Greek tragedy reference to make his point when encouraging his journalism students to be “artful” about the details of sexual assault and rape when a Greek system Fraternity was actually involved in the controversial case being dissected now. The Greek System is already silencing women, now we gotta be artful… and graceful? This is BAD FORM. If you can’t convince me, you’re not going to convince smart students or readers.

    I’m sure that telling a story like that would evoke strong emotions in most people.
