On Case McCoy and our Oversexed Culture

Yesterday, Texas Longhorns (backup) Quarterback Case McCoy was accused of rape.

The incident happened at 2:48 in the morning.  Alcohol was involved.  We shouldn't jump to conclusions.

That being said, this is a tragedy; the details don't matter.

Yesterday, I linked to this piece from Josh Charles and Chandler Schmidt about the shooting in Connecticut.  I read it again after learning about Case.  Josh and Chandler nail it:
Our culture can no longer preach moral chaos and apathy and then act surprised when we see it on full display.
Here's my question: if our culture didn't place such a high premium on belt notches, would Case McCoy have been in that bar in the first place?!?

Food for thought.
