"WOMAN IN TRACKSUIT PROBABLY NOT DISOWNED BY ENTIRE FAMILY"
I love translating news, commercials and TV like this, too. My dad is absolutely sick of it but I have a 15-year-old brother who needs to know he doesn’t have to be a shit head just because the media tells him to be.
So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowitz.
In her school hearing, Sulkowitz ” had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”
"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."
FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST
- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus
- When she went to the police, one officer said: “”You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”
- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”
And that’s. Why. People. Don’t. REPORT.
I want to set literally everything on fire.
women have a right to a safe education
ruin rapists’ lives
this has been on my dash a couple times now and I’ve seen Emma’s name plastered all over the place, but not the rapist’s, even though it’s been featured on severalsitesby now
Jean-Paul Nungesser, folks: don’t forget the name of a lowlife, and stay safe
no. this is awful. Budweiser only paid the beautiful town of Crested Butte $500,000 to turn a cute ski town into a generic, corporate hell. All of this was done with a great amount of secrecy, leaving citizens virtually no decision in the matter. Meanwhile, the streets are painted blue, as well as the light poles and many businesses have been stripped of local insignia and replaced with BudLight paraphernalia. Crested Butte is an adorable town with a ton of character and what BudLight has done should be a crime. No.
it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men.
and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.
