Victory

From Petition Creator Molly Litfin: The Ohio State University came out very formally against these shirts, and decided that any who attempted to wear these non-licensed shirts into the games would be asked to exchange the shirts for non-offensive OSU gear. They will not be allowed to be worn into the games, which is both respectful and a satisfactory outcome. I know the shirts won't be permanently gone, and I know there are plenty of unpleasant people who think I'm awful (they've commented on sites or on my petition!), but I don't care. OSU took a stand in favor of the victims, and showed that being a respectful is much more important than dirty game tactics.

As a parent, a human, and a graduate of The Ohio State University, I am beyond sickened that this shirt has been allowed to be produced. I know that it's not only OSU that has used this nightmare as some kind of sick joke, but since it's my alma mater & my hometown, I'm asking the officials at The NCAA, The Big Ten, and The Ohio State University to step up and be the first university to call for an immediate halt in production & destruction of these horrible, offensive shirts.

      Working with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, both adults and children, there is no humor to be found in the actions of these predators and what their victims had to endure.

      Because there is NO evidence that the person responsible for these shirts have anything to do with OSU. They were made by some sleezeball who wants money. He/she is probably responsible for the ones at LSU and Iowa also. Lets find out who made the shirts and is tryuing to profit from the pain of others, and let's put him/her out of business by never buying anything from their company in the future. And--Molly Liftin, why did you, an OSU graduate jump so quickly to sy that it is 'not only OSU that has used this nightmare as some kind of a sick joke' , thereby convicting the university without any proof ? Way to stand up for your school. I as a graduate of OSU know it is below the standards of the school and the OSU students.

      Very disrespectful to the victims of this heinous crime! This is not humor of any sort.

      As a resident and big OSU fan, this is horribly disgusting. I don't think any of the schools are responsible; but, I believe that all of them should put out a public statement denouncing this sick individual.
