{November 2, 2014}   A Culture of Misogyny

College Fraternity accused of creating Culture of Misogyny: http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/31/justice/lawsuit-phi-kappa-tau-fraternity/index.html?hpt=hp_t4

HERE IS A MAN BLOGGING ABOUT THE CULTURE MISOGYNY AFTER THE MAY 2014 CA REVENGE ON WOMEN SHOOTING (http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/may/24/elliot-rodgers-california-shooting-mental-health-misogyny)  …I have known nerdy male stalkers, and, yes, nerdy male rapists. I’ve known situations where I knew something was going on but didn’t say anything—because I didn’t want to stick my neck out, because some vile part of me thought that this kind of thing was “normal,” because, in other words, I was a coward and I had the privilege of ignoring the problem…other people’s bodies and other people’s love are not something that can be taken nor even something that can be earned—they can be given freely, by choice, or not.  http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/27/your-princess-is-in-another-castle-misogyny-entitlement-and-nerds.html

The NUS defines lad culture as a group or “pack” mentality expressed in activities such as sport and heavy alcohol consumption, and in “banter” which is “often sexist, misogynist, and homophobic”.   http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/07/lad-culture-women-rape-sexual-harassment-abuse-laddish
