In the middle of reporting on the Yale lawsuit against its Hostile Sexual Environment, a Good Morning America reporter experiences just what it’s all about.
This is rape culture folks. That this asshole thought it would be perfectly okay/appropriate/funny to yell this out, direct verbal abuse at women. That’s wrong, that’s rape culture.
What also needs emphasizing is that it’s going on in campuses everywhere. Universities and other similar institutions would rather sweep things under the rug by releasing useless statements and “handling it internally”. The pressure to settle quietly (and bless you if you even get to that point is more than overwhelming. A lot of sexual harassment and assault cases go unreported because the system in place in campuses is just plain traumatizing.
