Male academics think the rape and torture of women happened in history “for obvious reasons.”

Boss Lady Soraya Chemaly on “Why it matters that the Internet is made for men, by men.”

University of Vermont systematizes a third gender: Neutral. Next on the docket: change name of the “history department” to the “theystory department.” Go #Feminism!!
