The Poisonous Nature of Rape Culture

Recently, I read an article which I would describe as being fairly judged, necessary and, unfortunately, somewhat troubling.

Find a link to said article here, in which Laura Bates discusses the danger of sites such as Uni Lad which serve to encourage and normalise 'Rape Culture' in younger generations. The danger here is that the jokes about rape and abuse of women will spill over into real life, reducing these issues to triviality and a humour tool.

Do you think that...

Do you think that people who have degrees are wealthier because, having lived in student housing, they are used to not being able to feel their hands at home and therefore never turn the heating on?
