  1. Column: Syracuse University Has Kissed the Kiss Cam GoodbyeSeptember 30, 2015

    Syracuse University has kissed its Kiss Cam goodbye - at least temporarily - after one fan wrote a letter to the editor claiming that it sends the wrong message at a time when colleges are campaigning against sexual violence on campus. During a football game against Wake Forest, Steve Port said he witnessed two instances where women were forcibly kissed by men despite clearly saying no. According to Port, the men were engaging in “horrifying behavior” that made him “sick to my stomach.” Furthermore, he says the University is encouraging and condoning sexual assault and “a sense of male entitlement, at best, and an actual instance of assault, at worst.” In response, Syracuse suspended use of the Kiss Cam for the following week’s game against Central Michigan University. University spokesperson Sue Edson said, “We are taking time to assess the concerns expressed in the letter.”
