express anger, the students facial expressions, tone
of voice and hand gestures all suggested the given
emotion when the alphabet could not. When bore
dom was the emotion, students avoided eye contact
and fidgeted. Attraction illicited eye-to-eye con
tact and open body stances. Whatever the feeling
was, an observer could easily see examples of
nonverbal communication that are usually taken
for granted. Dr. Dubs’ point was evident; your
tongue may lie but your body always tells the truth.
Dubs then moved the discussion on to
practical applications of body language and im
plicit communication, such as brushing off a co-
worker’s pass, letting a companion know when
enough’s enough or even preventing a potential
“Men and women don’t communicate as
well together as they do when they’re separate” Dr.
Dubs said. “Women pick up nonverbal communi
cation more easily than men do. This discussion,
though covering a different genre, seemed to have
essentially the same point as Dr. Belford’s: when
it comes to communication between the sexes, we
seem to have a problem, verbally and nonverbally.
This proved to be the focus of the two
groups 'joint discussion. Since date rape combines
most or all of the elements involved, it proved to be
a focal point for the students opinions. Some males
felt that a female should realize sex is expected if
certain checkpoints are passed, while several fe
males vehemently denied the validity of such
“checkpoints”, choosing instead to say that a simple
“no” is more than enough. This led to a much-
needed confrontation of the ever-present gender
stereotypes that exist in society; females as over
assuming teases and men as sexual gluttons seek
ing mere physical pleasure at any cost. Most
agreed that it was the individual’s responsibility to
avoid such situatioas, and that alcohol provides no
excuse for irresponsibility or wrongdoing. Dr.
Belford suggested that men and women should be
more honest with one another about their needs
while Dr. Dubs cautioned everyone to check their
body language to make sure it matches what’s
coming out of their mouth.
By the end of the discussion, it seemed the
focus had moved away from examining communi
cation between the sexes to the actual enacting of
