Roast Busters: we can’t let such Facebook groups thrive

Internet forums created for men to discuss their sexual “conquests” are nothing new. There is an entire online community of “pick up artists” dedicated to reducing women to rating systems and helpless victims of evolutionary psychology. Sometimes, more disgusting and violent pages arise. Revenge porn, sites dedicated to naming and shaming women, university “walk of shame” photo galleries and city-specific forums are depressingly commonplace.On Sunday, a story broke in New Zealand about a Facebook group called Roast Busters. The group, which had been active for two years, allegedly had boys in their teens bragging about having sex with girls who were drunk and suggested to be underage. It has since been revealed that one of the boys involved is the son of a police officer, another, the son of an actor.
