Transcript P&W Party Controversy surrounds big party The name of one of the Towers Program Board's (TPB) biggest parties brought controversy after several groups voiced concerns over it's tastefulness. The Pimp and Whore Party had earned the attention of an area women's support group and questions from students and administrators. TPB President Julie Brecht said the party was merely a costume party and was not at all offensive. "Three of our four officers are women and we did not deem it offensive. We're not trying to knock down women." Brecht added that consideration had been given to a name change, but that it was vetoed by TPB. "Administration had voiced concern about the name and that it (the party) was being held during Cougar Preview and asked us to look at another name. But we didn't feel like it was damaging to UH," she said. Assistant Director for Residence Halls' administration Bobby Brownstein said that administrators were concerned that the name would be offensive, but that TPB, which was left with the decision, approved the name. "It (the name) is no big deal with us," he said. Brecht said thought was given to new names, but it was decided against. "With some of the names we had, we thought that we couldn't use them because we might get sued," she said. She also said that using the initials P&W was not an attempt to defraud anyone. "We're not trying to pull anything sneaky; it's just an attempt to guard ourselves while Cougar Preview is going on," she said. Residence Halls Association President Lee Grooms said RHA supported the board's decision. "Sure, it's suggestive, but it's no different (from) what we see in print. It's something in the real world," he said. "The name does not promote risque behavior any more than what they (residents) would be responsible for at any other time," Bridges added. Interim President George Magner said he agreed that the name was a bad choice, but that no rules were broken. What did residents at the party have to say about it? "I thought the party went very well. There were lots of people there. Where else can you go see men dressed as women," said Rachel Del Rosario. -Story courtesy The Daily Cougar A One, Two, Three.
