For Stanford Class of ’94, a Gender Gap More Powerful Than the Internet -
“If a woman says no, she means yes!” “You’re all [expletive] slaves.” [Sacks] made it clear that he found the graffiti itself deplorable, calling it “sexist and violent,” in his first essay for The Stanford Review, a conservative-libertarian campus newspaper. But he also argued that an earlier round of graffiti — including a crude statement about President George Bush — had been just as offensive. [...] Keith Rabois, another former editor, said in an interview. But there was an ugly side as well; Mr. Rabois left campus in 1992 after yelling “Can’t wait until you die,” punctuating it with a homophobic slur. He said afterward that he had been protesting campus speech codes. Mr. Sacks was almost as abrasive, joking in print about an imaginary course called “Bathroom Self Defense for Heterosexuals.” [...] it was not clear that they recognized the basic concerns of many female and minority students — that they would not have the same opportunities as their white male peers.

BBC News - Robert Gordon University stops nurse masks training
The RGU spokesman said in a statement: "It was not our intention to add to the stigmatisation of people with mental health problems; in fact we continue to see simulation and role play, which includes the use of volunteer patients and actors, as a useful part of our teaching, particularly in helping students gain a comprehensive understanding of the impact of stigma. [...] Mental health awareness organisation See Me welcomed the review. [...] "However, we are very concerned that the visual appearance of the masks has the potential to increase the stigma associated with mental illness by reinforcing negative perceptions, not only in the general public, but also in the next generation of mental health professionals. "There has been a strong negative reaction to the masks and we regret the public's reaction was not fully considered.

My first and last time at the Crunchies — @ Medium — Medium
At the Crunchies, comedian T.J. Miller, a star of the show “Silicon Valley” (which I watch and love), threw out a bunch of playful zingers in his opening act. But then at one point, he engaged with a woman (Gabi Holzwarth) a few rows in front of me by calling her a “bitch”. She responded increduously, “Did you just call me a bitch?” He then said, “Bitch, Asians aren’t supposed to be this entitled in the U.S. … Is this bitch from Palo Alto?” The audience laughed nervously. I was so uncomfortable I wanted to leave, but of course I couldn’t given that our award was coming up. [...] At Crunchies I saw a woman get called a "bitch" onstage, then I did AOL TV & the host mocked me for being pale and made fun of my purse. [...] [ << Show of insecurity by taking the cheap road.
