I talk about two ways of defining rape culture and explain why the milder version is still disturbing and is clearly at play in my social circles (U.S. middle-to-upper-middle class millennials in a university setting). I look at the realm of dating to argue that notions of male superiority contribute to a rape culture and discuss alternative ways to frame dating to avoid naively absorbing this rape culture.
This book by a Classicist looks at the ways in which reactionary men on the internet appeal to the Classics from ancient Greece and Rome, and examines how such appeals help support their worldview.
For some reason, people have a mental image of racism as violent, ignorant, lower-class, crude, crass, and irrational.

This book is a look at the traits and mindset of abusive men. Some of its insights are surprising and shed light on why domestic abuse is so hard to detect and treat.
