Oceanside CA— MiraCosta College will hold a town hall meeting, “Locker Room Talk,” on October 27, 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Student Center on the Oceanside Campus, located, 1 Barnard Drive.

This faculty-led forum will deconstruct the current national conversation on locker room talk and sexual assault. Faculty members from psychology, sociology, and philosophy will comprise a panel that will also include members of the athletic department and student leaders.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • What is sexual assault?
  • How objectifying language can perpetuate violence
  • Trauma associated with abuse and objectification
  • The difficulties survivors face when coming forward
  • The importance of supporting sexual assault survivors
  • Myths of masculinity
  • Societal and cultural factors that may contribute to the problem
  • Political ethics: Is there such a thing?
  • Athletes in the locker room and the court room
  • Bystanders vs. Upstanders: The responsibility to stand up and speak out?
  • Campus resources

Mental health counselors will be available during and after the event.
