Remove "Rutgers" women's lingerie from the University Bookstore


I am gravely concerned by the prominent display of "Rutgers" women’s lingerie at the Barnes and Noble Rutgers University Bookstore on College Avenue. The display includes lacey red thongs embellished with rhinestone R’s and matching lace slips. I feel the display of this product in a place of learning expresses that male students come to the university for an education, while female students are merely sexualized objects for male pleasure. I believe this conveys a sexist message to prospective students and parents, current students, and anyone who enters the store. I call for the immediate removal of these offensive items from the University Bookstore.
