Spectators’ groping ‘defeated spirit of the streak’

“To the spectators at the streak Wednesday night:

“As loyal streakers to Carolina, who happen to be female, we do not feel that touching our breasts and/or other genitalia is necessary to the spirit of the streak. It was degrading both to us and the people who did it. We feel that it has defeated the spirit of the streak, which is to promote unity and togetherness of men and women.”

— From “Some degraded coed streakers,” a letter to the Daily Tar Heel from “The 64 Carolina Coed Streakers” (March 8, 1974)
