Oxford University sends rugby players to anti-sexism classes re-education camps

Students at Oxford University are only being allowed to compete in the biggest rugby tournaments of the season if they agree to attend anti-misogyny workshops re-education camps, under a new scheme.

The attempt to combat sexism on campus is the first time that the classes camps have been made a condition to participation on the sports field.

Campaigners said they hope to introduce similar conditions for involvements in other sports, such as football, rowing, hockey and cricket, and organisers are in talks with other universities about introducing the scheme nationally.

Every Oxford college rugby team had to sign up the hour-long workshops in order to enter this year’s Cupper knockout tournament.

The “good lad” courses are an attempt to combat the “lad culture” prevalent on campus, and include discussions about sexual harassment, consent, “lad banter” and team initiation ceremonies.

The idea came from Dave Llewellyn, 27, an Oxford graduate and sportsman who said he got fed up with the levels of boorishness in the locker room…

    This is surely a moment for a rather loud fuck you and the boys organising their own tournament on some bit of waste ground.

      An electrical engineer I worked with used to play Rugby League in the UK as a young lad. One of his first games away was in North Yorkshire and he said he knew he was among the hard men: their field was made of gravel. Not a blade of grass.

    I’ll bet dollars to donuts that this David Llewellyn chap has a petite penis. Oh how I loathe the David Llewellyns of this world. I fantasize thriller movies in which guys like this are rounded up, taken to a warehouse somewhere, and filmed fucking one another up the arse and down the throat. Then they are released with instructions to shut the fuck up. The sequels are all about how each candidate does once stripped the possibility of striking a public posture of moral righteousness.

        You are far, far kinder than I am, Drunk. My plans for Dave would be far, far more harrowing. I will try to be a better person, but guys like Dave make that so effin’ HARD, know what I mean?

          I’m willing to escalate.
          Morally, he’s no better than a STAZI informer.
          He’s a low creature.

    What till someone informs him that “Roll Me Over, In The Clover” is for male and female singers.

    Feminists wanted all the rules changes so that women didn’t have to behave like “ladies” anymore. I suppose it didn’t cross their minds that men would stop acting like “gentlemen”.
    I also don’t believe that men’s behaviour is all that bad. I have spent my whole life working in overwhelming male or all male environments and I haven’t seen the sort of behaviour that is getting Dave’s knickers all twisted up.
