This presentation focuses on ways students on college campuses reproduce and sustain rape culture through humor. Sexist jokes are generally accepted on college campuses. This trend in college-educated individuals devaluing and debasing women is a growing problem. This presentation analyzes how we can use offensive behavior to deploy feminisms that correct this cultural phenomenon of humorous misogyny and patent acceptance of anti-feminist jokes to derail the prevalence of rape culture on college campuses.
