It’s not breaking news that universities across the country are dropping the ball when it comes to handling sexual assault cases. With many cases being denied or hidden away and with only a portion of offenders receiving barely a slap on the wrist, this issue is just another corner of the news world that terrifies and silences women.

Recently, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart covered an incident at James Madison University. A female student reported a harassment case that involved male students pulling down her bikini top and filming it, then circulating the video. Thinking this should be a pretty easy case to handle with clear evidence, the offenders were to be expelled upon graduation.

“‘Expelled upon graduation’?!” shrieked Stewart. “Isn’t that… graduation?!

Stewart reported that 55 universities are currently under investigation for the ways they handle sexual assault cases, which led to some “campus safety tips” from Jordan Kleper and Jessica Williams. As Kleper and Williams alternate on their safety tips, it becomes more and more clear the drastic differences between what male students and female students need to look out for on campus. While Kleper jokes and shares laughable wisdom like, “Beer before liquor, never been sicker” and “Bros before hoes,” Williams urges her fellow female students to watch out for roofies (“Don’t be a doofie, watch out for a roofie”), never leave your girlfriends at a party, never walk home or take a cab alone… You get the idea. In the end, Kleper turns to Williams and says, “Let’s be real. You’re telling me that women just spend their whole day navigating an obstacle course of sexual menace?”

“Yeah,” says Williams. “Pretty much.”
