School boys are making rape jokes in bid to score ‘lad points’, headteachers are warned
Why would the medium change boys?
School boys are using memes and social media to make rape jokes in a bid to score “lad points”, headteachers have been warned.
More than a third (36 per cent) of 11-18 year-old boys have shared racist or homophobic pictures, more than double the amount shared by their female peers, according to a poll of 20,000 children.
The survey, commissioned by the organisation Digital Awareness UK (DAUK) and Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC), found that four in ten boys see offensive memes daily.
The other 6 are better at hiding their tracks.
