In response to the concern that the women initially expressed a desire to go on stage and dance(twerk) alongside B.o.B., what ultimately ended up happening was not what had been presented initially and may have pushed some these women out of their comfort zones.
Lest we not forget, the video Mines showed many of us when we first came to campus:
Mines hosted this event as a celebration for the community. No matter the extent to which the events that transpired occurred or how it may seem inconsequential to "compare adult girls, who, WILLINGLY participated, to people who had someone force themselves on another person," in the end, consent matters. These women agreed to do one thing and received more than they bargained for. Whether or not they were fine with it in the moment, E-Days has a reputation for students to destress in various ways. Things that were done over this weekend may have been out of character for many individuals. I can't pretend to know exactly what these women felt before, during, or after the concert, but from a bystander's perspective, I was taken aback.
The bottomline: No matter what these women agreed to when they initially went on the stage, the true events did not line up with the proposal issued by B.o.B. - Mines has an obligation to their students and their community to protect everyone who walks its campus.
