Pop culture

Jessica Valenti, New York Times:

The rape jokes on ‘‘Family Guy’’ make me nauseous. About three years ago, Lakshmi Chaudhry wrote this great piece called ‘‘Men Growing Up to Be Boys.’’ It’s about how the new model of masculinity is perpetual adolescence.

Every Family Guy episode I've seen featured male characters punching female characters. I understand it's a popular show!
