A university that during a student orientation session showed a slide appearing to suggest masturbation as a deterrent to sexual assault has apologized. The Rochester Institute of Technology's slide featured the Winnie the Pooh character Roo, using the kangaroo character's name as an acronym about masturbation. Critics said the slide made light of rape and blasted the idea that masturbation could curb someone's urge to commit sexual assault. University officials said the screenshot was taken out of context and the discussion addressed options available should a potential sexual partner withdraw consent.
