‘You Deserve Rape’ sign held by ‘Brother Dean’ outrages University of Arizona students

Dean Saxton, a student at the University of Arizona, stood on campus Tuesday wearing a shirt that said “Virgin Pride” and holding a sign reading “You Deserve Rape,” The Huffington Post reports. Saxton, who’s known on the UA campus as “Brother Dean,” gathered a crowd of onlookers by holding the sign and suggesting women who wear short shorts in 90-degree weather are asking to be raped, the Daily Wildcat reported. Saxton had other signs, too, which read “Rapists Deserve The Death Penalty,” “Frat Boys Are The Rapists” and “Sorority Girls Are Whores,” according to a video posted on YouTube. As seen in the video, Saxton yelled, “You deserve to be raped,” at women walking by, insisting their fathers hate them for allowing them to dress in that way. He also shouted, “All Muslims are pedophiles,” at one point in the footage. The video also shows a few men losing their temper and attempting to knock the sign out of Saxton’s hands, only to be restrained by others gathered in the crowd.
