In high school, I was often told that coming to class mattered a whole lot. Teachers may have rounded grades at the end of semester, but only if they saw you in class frequently or participating. Attendance was an integral part of the course’s final grade.
I was talking with a friend Saturday night and he told me he felt like he was raped by a class. Looking back on the class, it was extremely difficult. Almost no one received an “A” and a disproportionate number of students failed the exams regularly. At the end of the day, the professor wasn’t very good at his job and he was unable to write fair exams and communicate information in a coherent manner. It’s not that we say the word “rape” that is the problem, it’s the fact that this word is so often used out of context and when we joke about rape or compare it to something like the difficulty of a class, we belittle the fact that people are actually victims of rape. Using rape as a joke and colloquialism is damaging.

According to the New York Times, both Madeline Albright and Gloria Steinem believe it is important for young women to support a female presidential candidate. So much so that Albright said: “There is a special place in hell for women who do not support each other.” We cannot help but assume that Albright is referring to young women who are not planning on voting for Hillary Clinton and instead are planning to vote for Bernie Sanders, since she was at a Clinton rally when this was said. Steinem also claimed that young women are only voting for Bernie Sanders to impress young men, according to The Guardian.
