Masculinity is toxic, tragic and the most sensitive thing that a person can imagine. Not in an ‘aww, how cute, let us help way’, not any more sisters, but in a ‘GOD THIS SHIT IS FUCKING SICK WAY.’
Masculinity is weak. It is ironically the most feeble and rotten thing that the society has thrown at us, men and women alike. Gender affects all. But, this is not about gender. It is not about whether men forget that they have sisters and brothers, it is about a question of who gets to live, who gets to be safe, who is allowed to be, who is joke-worthy, and who becomes the joke. It is about who calls the shots, and who gets to wear their pants, not in a colloquial powerful, fun and sometimes sexist way this time, but quite literally.
Rape is not funny. Gender roles are not funny. Memes are supposed to be funny. Revenge porn is not funny. Rape jokes are not sick, they are disastrous and only show how damaged and broken we really are from our inside.
Can’t believe your eyes and ears? Here’s the Dankpuna at LUMS:
Sidenotes: RAPE IS A PROBLEM OF UNFAIR POWER PLAY, NOT SEX! And honey if you don’t got any consent, you a freaky sick minded rapist! People who may say that it is because of clothing, sexual liberation or some form of modernism should: a. check date and time on your phone and make sure it’s not medieval and then b. get some perspective!
See what are the people saying:
Now this group was mainly made by and made for men at lums. Us girls have a group like that as I just mentioned but not a single post on our group even reaches the type of “humor” these men were promoting. Now please try convincing me that all men aren’t trash

That’s just plain horrible. Should be dealt with by the Disciplinary Committee.
Meanwhile, the student body should both register protest, and have a conversation about just what type of space/community LUMS is supposed to be for women.
One of dignity and equality , I hope.

“They’re mostly freshmen kids, this isn’t Lums culture”
“We need to educate and not humiliate them.”
Boys defending other boys and crying “NoT aLL mEn ArE tRaSh” to women instead of talking about the real issue. Typical desi misogynist male behaviour.

You’re spending something like 6-7 Mil a year on educating yourself, where is all of that going? Are you for real, IS THE LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION DOING NOTHING TO YOU? And if that doesn’t do anything then where is your common decency? and that’s very very stringently saying, one thing is fo’ shiz, money don’t buy class, money certainly does not freaking buy humanity or human decency. 600+ sick Men, wow, that’s something considering LUMS likes to call it a small campus that selects the best candidates from thousands of them. Way to go bloody god-damned patriarchy!
