The male respondent was accused of making off-color jokes in class, some promoting rape culture. Examples included comments along the lines of: "What was the wife's favorite sex position? Facing Nordstrom's" and "Why were the sorority girls disappointed about being gang raped? Because they had to write so many thank you cards." The respondent acknowledged making similar jokes, although he denied some of the wording, including the word "raped." The allegation against him was substantiated by the Office of Equal Opportunity & Sexual Harassment/Title IX Compliance.
