Fox News host Andrea Tantaros: Rape culture is a war on boys

Rape culture? That's just a war on boys. Or so it is according to Fox News host Andrea Tantaros, who made the comments when discussing a now discredited Rolling Stone story about an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia.

The article received worldwide attention when it was published in November last year, but several outlets asked questions of its veracity. On Monday police said they had not found any evidence that the assault had taken place in the way that the accuser, known only as Jackie, had described it.

Tantaros said she was speaking "slowly here so all the feminist blogs can hear it" (Hi Andrea!).

There is a war happening on boys on these college campuses.

And so you have Lena Dunham, Rolling Stone — it is a theme in this country to go after boys in this rape culture.

What happens after they assassinate their character? What happens to Lena Dunham? What happens to these fraternity boys? Absolutely nothing! And it hurts the women and the victims at the end of the day the most.
