9. Professor implied committing sex assault is a right of passage for men. Now he says that was satire

"To have someone in a position of power espousing sexual assault is not a joke. It's something that needs to be taken seriously," she said.
She has organized a protest for 12:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Langbert, a 64-year-old associate professor who teaches on weekends, said the post was parody, and he apologized to anyone who was offended.


"I was trying to be satirical, but I guess I'm no Jonathan Swift," he said, referring to the Irish author from the 1700s. "I appreciated that it may have been in bad taste and I have apologized for that and I will again. I'm sorry people got offended. I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings or cause them to not feel respected. I honestly didn't expect them to read it."

He said he has turned over threats of violence toward him to authorities.
