    I’m a school counselor and I hear the comments girls make of other girls all the time. I lead self-esteem workshops during lunch with a group of fifteen HS girls and I was shocked to hear some of their comments about the Steubenville, Ohio rape case. Some girls were so focused on what the victim was doing out drinking and what she was wearing, that they forgot to ask themselves ’why did those boys do what they did to that girl?’ It’s a common problem amongst girls, slut shaming. We need to go back to the basics like character ed because these girls are not sticking together. It’s both sad and alarming.

    I agree with you 100%. I first learned of this as a gender and women’s studies undergrad and took a course in men and masculinity. The course was amazing and really provided a reality check on the lives mean live and the many challenges they face. Currently reading Guyland, its a great read.
