first_imgEmma Farnan | The Observer Panelists Fr. Peter McCormick, senior Annie Kuster and junior Daniel Esparza discuss consent and the hook-up culture at Notre Dame.To frame the discussion, the panel began with a short video called “Tea Consent,” which provided a humorous perspective on the topic by using the act of serving someone tea as a metaphor for sexual consent.The panel initiated their conversation by talking about the purpose of dorm parties and the consequences that on-campus parties entail.Esparza said students often uses alcohol and parties as ways to release the stress of a long week, a mindset that can hold potentially damaging ramifications.“It’s very important that people don’t use things like dorm parties and alcohol as a crutch,” Esparza said.Because of the ubiquity of on-campus parties at Notre Dame and the strong connection between residence halls and social life, Kuster said students can sometimes be lulled into a false sense of security when they go to parties in dorms.“We don’t necessarily connect going down the hallway with a place where some problem could be,” Kuster said.McCormick said these thoughts are consistent with his experience as a rector. While Notre Dame has consciously preserved the culture of on-campus parties because it values making residence halls central to student’s lives, he said the prevalence of alcohol on campus does involves some risks.“If we want you to feel that the residence halls are home, you should be allowed to welcome your friends over, and you should be allowed to have parties,” McCormick said. “The mindset of why parties occur in dorms is very much rooted in the community mindset of Notre Dame.”The panel also discussed the differences in social life between men and women in college.Kuster said boys have more power than girls over almost every aspect of a party, from the alcohol they provide to the music they play, because most parties are held in boys’ dorms. Although this may seem like a trivial issue, Kuster said this means girls can feel more helpless in unfamiliar situations.“When you show up to somebody else’s party and boys are the ones throwing the party, they have the control,” Kuster said.However, McCormick said, girls have the ability to decide which parties to go to and can always leave when they feel uncomfortable.“Woman actually have more power and authority than what they think,” McCormick said.The panel then examined the question of why hook-ups and sexual assault seem to be so prevalent in college.Esparza said many students enter college with naive ideas about how sex and relationships actually work, and consequently, can make mistakes without realizing their errors.“Sometimes, especially in college, many people typically don’t see it as rape because they really don’t understand how mutual relationships work,” Esparza said.Additionally, McCormick said the media portrays college far different from reality, with an emphasis on casual sex, drinking and partying. In particular, McCormick said, movies embody this myth and give incoming students major misconceptions about college.“The thing Hollywood doesn’t show you, the thing popular literature doesn’t show you, is how it feels when an unwanted advance gets made on you,” McCormick said.In order to break free from this ignorance, McCormick said students need to be actively involved in both learning about sexual assault and being mindful of their own actions.“We need to be more informed … about the fact that our actions, whether they be subtle, quick or even unintended, have significant impacts on people’s lives,” McCormick said.Tags: Fire Starters, Fr.

first_imgThe Spanish federation has cited concerns about competitive balance as to why the Barcelona-Girona match should not be played in Miami, rather than Girona, though the Spanish federation did approve the playing of the Copa Libertadores final second leg even though the match is a second leg that was originally slated to be played in Buenos Aires.A Copa Libertadores final in Miami would have helped give the La Liga-Miami proposal a precedent to point to as organizers continue to push for the match to take place in the United States.As things stand, it is looking like soccer fans in the United States have already missed out on one international final and are likely to also miss out on seeing an official La Liga match played on American soil. Another underlying subplot behind opposition to a potential Copa Libertadores final being played in the United States is the proposed La Liga match that soccer promoter Relevent Sports is working with La Liga officials to bring to Miami.Multiple sources told Goal that both U.S. Soccer and Major League Soccer are opposed to any official La Liga match being held in the United States, though both American organizations are believed to be counting on FIFA and the Spanish Federation to kill off the proposal before U.S. Soccer or MLS have to.Under that proposal, Barcelona would play Girona in Miami in January, but objections from the Spanish federation, as well as the Spanish player’s association, have created hurdles that could force the proposal to be pushed back all the way to September, if it ever happens at all. According to CONMEBOL, Cordeiro “didn’t want” the game to be played in Miami, Argentine newspaper La Nacion reported.Sources with knowledge of U.S. Soccer’s handling of the situation paint a different picture to Goal of what went down with the proposed Libertadores match in Miami. According to those sources, U.S. Soccer never received a formal proposal and there was no clarification provided regarding whether Boca Juniors and River Plate were on board with playing a match in the United States.The organizers of the proposed Miami match were never informed why the proposal was rejected by U.S. Soccer, first learning of the rejection from the report in La Nacion. Sources say they believe the fact the match would have taken place on the same date as Saturday’s MLS Cup final in Atlanta played at least some part in U.S. Soccer’s reluctance to approve the move to Miami.Concerns about being able to host the match in Miami on short notice look unsubstantiated after CONMEBOL succeeded in moving the final to Madrid, where it will be played at Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.
