Rape Jokes Aren't OK

On Friday, 17-year-old Ain Husniza shared a TikTok video describing how her teacher allegedly made rape jokes during a conversation in class about sexual harassment and abuse. This led to a lot of anger and calls for the Education Minister to investigate and take stern action on the matter. We talk about how we can do better in schools by generating healthy conversations during sexuality education. Then, we look at rape culture in the wider society, and how to address it. And finally, we check in with a comedian about how to address the mentality of ‘it’s just a joke, where’s your sense of humour?’.
