Unilad: Shock and Horror at Student Site

I am absolutely horrified at this article that I have just read:

http://www.thenationalstudent.com/News/2012-02-02/UniLad_Magazines_Surprise_Rape_Article_Unsurprisingly_Causes_Shut_Down.html

Unilad.com was a website (now shut down) supposedly aimed at male students. This website included misogynistic photographs, racist posts and politically incorrect articles. I  was not aware that this site even existed until I was informed by the nationalstudent.com website this morning, and I am still trying to overcome the horror. Rape, racism and other forms of abuse are completely unnecessary, and leads me to question the type of ‘uni lad’ who reads this kind of trash.

If this is the state of our student culture then the country cannot hold out much hope: if the graduates of our future are binge drinking racists who support sexist propaganda, then there is no hope of change in the style of government, policy or everyday attitude in this country: a devastating thought.
