As news of the guidelines — issued last month — spread online this week, the university was slammed by social media users for suggesting that women were responsible for sexual assault.
On the Twitter-like Weibo platform, one user wrote: “Why is a woman’s ‘freedom of dressing’ deemed as ‘temptation’? It’s mainly because the hearts of some men are unclean.”
“I hope text in the future will say: ‘Some men should please correct their thoughts’.”
“Women have not yet been raped, but Guangxi University has prepared to slut-shame them,” another user wrote.
The topic had over 210 million views and thousands of comments on Weibo as of Wednesday.
