Sexualising Student Culture

Links to recent articles from The Independant addressing the sexualised culture surrounding students and freshers week:

‘Slut dropping’ and ‘Pimps and Hoes’- the sexual politics of freshers’ week

We’re students, not slags

I came across these articles coincidently after a conversation with a collegue at university in which we discussed the sexual themes surrounding freshers week and student nights. I was outraged as my collegue told me about a local bar displaying a slogan reading “Grab yourself a slutty fresher”. The bar which is called ‘Bumper’ and based in Liverpool city centre, is apparently investigating the issue after a number of complaints from the public. Hopefully I will hear more about this soon and be able to provide an update.
