was surprised to discover that a colleague of mine at a top law school could find this an appropriate thing to share.
Are you delusional? even at UVA, I will bet you any amount of money that I will run into another student who will make far more inappropriate comments (directed at me or a friend).
However, I kind of see what you're saying, but all the hypothetical "could" penalties someone who makes these types of comments might suffer won't likely deter anyone. As for "getting the joke" contributing to what makes UVA special (I don't believe any of us ever argued this point).
The Feb Club pictures are far more disturbing than what is said on this forum. If you choose to participate and have your picture there (look carefully at the captions for each party - lot of derogatory and sexist language).
Overall, I don't agree that this humor is insensitive (in the context of the internet and posters background), but it is sophomoric. For J-Rod's transgressions, I'll post a new avatar to counterbalance all the sexist negativity in this thread.
I guess, bring this thread back to shows like Entourage, Lost, and Gossip Girl (all shows that somehow accentuate the positive qualities of the American culture (drugs, alcohol, lacks of morals, etc.)
