Stuff I Learned in English Class

It's that time of year again. The time when students write silly things in their papers and I feel guilty for pumping them full of insufficient and erroneous information.

Today I learned that:

"Raping women was common in medieval times. Men would frequently rape women as a means of expressing their power and demonstrating their dominance over women."

I also learned that:

"When I say romantic love, I mean a love that hits you like a brick wall when you first see someone."

More coming up . . .

Raping women was about as common in medieval Europe as now, from what I've read. And it sounds like the reasons aren't all that far off, either.

What an enlightened society we live in! If only...

What was the context? Was the student trying to differentiate between now and then, or?
