A story from a college-aged female about her gender studies class and one particularly vocal male student.

While discussing rape culture, the male student said the following things:

“Rape is a women’s issue…just like the Holocaust was the Jews’ issue.”

“If you’re a drunk girl, you should learn not to be sloppy, because if you get taken advantage of it’s your fault.”

“Women don’t report rapists because they are cowards.”

My female friend was so appalled that she didn’t even know what to say, and honestly, neither do I.
