While RamTalk is obviously a forum for undeveloped and partial ideas, it should not be a platform for spewing sexism and misogyny. The Monday issue of the Collegian included a comment suggesting that someone was going to throw punches at the wind as a metaphorical "nagging woman."

A culture that allows such a comment to be accepted as humor is a culture that fosters a dangerous climate of gendered violence. There is nothing funny about misogyny or gendered violence, and treating it lightly only encourages such attitudes and behaviors to continue.

Resources for challenging these conditions are available at http://wps.colostate.edu.
