Critic’s drug date rape article

As I’m in Dunedin today, and going to visit my old university this afternoon, I should offer a view on the near annual outcry against a student newspaper article – this year being a Critic article on drug date rape. Warning the article is truly offensive.

I don’t have an issue with the article. I think it does more good in wanring people about how it can be done, than any harm it may do by telling would be rapists how to do it. They can find that out from the Internet (quick ban that also) anyway.

I do have an issue that students are forced to fund Critic through compulsory fees, but that is a seperate debate.

You can also see TV cameras being set up to interview the Critiic editor here.
