csevet: junecsea: timetravelrabbit: roqo: Reminder that protesting is worth getting suspended for #yeah a walkout is disruptive but you know what’s more disruptive? FUCKING SHOOTINGS I’m reblogging this again because I wanted to add a note: PROTEST ANYWAYS. If your schools threaten to suspend you, protest anyways. En masse. Because you know what gets tracked by district, state and federal administration? Suspensions. Schools and schools systems *must report* their suspension levels etc. Every year all this data from the state gets compiled into a huge report and presented to the State Board of Education and the state legislators. By. School. You know what happens to schools districts with unusually high rates? Big Trouble. So if your principal/superintendent threatens to suspend any student participating in a walkout? Still do it. Because here’s what will happen: You’ll walk out, get suspended, the school will be empty basically for *days* effectively starting a strike, the principal will have to report it to the district, the district will have to report it to the state and there’s a solid chance your school’s administrative team could be replaced. YOU HOLD ALL THE CARDS HERE. Don’t let them think otherwise. There is literally nothing they can threaten you with that won’t come back to bite them square in the ass. if your school is like mine was and authority figures squawk about “your permanent record”, please keep in mind i’ve never seen evidence that postsecondary schools or potential employers can see disciplinary records from your school days if they can, tell the truth, calmly and professionally. “yes, that week of suspensions was over the 2018 Student Walkout (or whatever it ends up being called), we were peacefully protesting the lack of action against gun violence in schools.” if the school/workplace is any kind of decent, they’ll understand that. : T-Mobile Wi-Fi 4:51 PM a vox.com EXPLAINERS POLITICS & POLICY MORE Texas superintendent threatens 3-day suspension for students who walk out to protest gun laws "A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally. A disruption of the school will not be tolerated."

draumbouy: wtttl: collababortion: kittydoom: salon: We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture. Amazingly, not The Onion: “[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.” I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION PLANET IS READY FOR MANDOWN CULTURE MANDOWN MANDOWN MANDOWN MANDOWN i swear to god youre all idiots. did you even read the fucking article? first of all no. we do not live in a rape culture.   Rape has actually decreased by over 80% since 1979, despite an increase in the willingness of victims in reporting it, and an increase in the overall number of rapes that were reported at allprior to discovery.   The “1 in ¾ women” “statistic” being passed around on places like Tumblr is hilariously FALSE.  Female scholars and other journalistshave written off the concept as nothing more than a form of mass hysteria.   The leading organization devoted to helping victims of rape discourages the notion from being taught on college campuses, as it tries to take blame off of the actual rapist, and place it onto some poorly-defined, imaginary boogeyman.  so now that we’ve put that myth to rest lets actually look at some of the stuff in this article. Last year, a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association found that less than 30 percent of college students had more than one partner in the previous year. now i dont know about you but one lay a year isnt really enough for me. shit if i dont have sex at least once a month i get moody.  this article is criticizing a Bloomberg piece about mens fear of being falseley accused as rapists. which by the way is a very realistic fear. Men who are accused of rape on a University campus can have their right of due process and trial by a jury of their peers stripped from them. In place of it, they can then be “convicted” by the university if the investigating body believes there is a 50.0001% chance that the man committed the rape. In addition, the accused is not allowed to seek any outside legal counsel, also taking away his right to an attorney. what this means is that men are literally stripped of constitutional rights to an actual investigation and can have their entire life ruined just because some dumbass sorority girl falsely accused them. and lets be real here who do you think they’re gonna side with? thats right. the girl. nobody’s gonna side with a college guy. people already think they’re the scum of the earth right? and now they’ve got some poor girl with crocodile tears enforcing that belief. that guy is pretty much fucked. Pollack said a patient recently told him about making out with a girl at a party. Things were going fine, the student said, when suddenly a vision of his school’s disciplinary board flew into his head. “‘I want to go to law school or medical school after this,’” Pollack said, recounting the student’s comments. “‘I said to her, it’s been nice seeing you.’” basically what this dude is saying is that he’s scared of even kissing a girl because she might report him for sexual assault if he hurts her feelings. Earlier in the piece, Gill said he no longer offered female classmates beer at parties because he doesn’t want to “look like a predator … it’s a little bit of a blurred line.” this dude wont even offer people beer at parties because girls automatically assume guys are rapists.  and this article up here. all its doing is basically spouting nonsense saying that men are blaming rape on the victim. but thats not whats happening. MEN ARE JUST SCARD TO HAVE THEIR FUCKING LIVES RUINED FOR SOMETHING THEY NEVER DID. and all of you fucking bought it. you just bit the hook and reblogged it without even reading the fucking thing so that you could laugh at an injustice men face. i mean its bad enough that we dont even have fucking rape legislation. and on top of that we have our constitutional rights taken  away by our college just so they can ruin our lives based on a rumor. and all you’ve done is make fun of it.  fuck your erasure of anything that isn’t all about women. fuck your political ignorance. fuck this article, and fuck you. : College dudes worried that movement to take rape seriously is ruining their sex lives "Some men feel that too much responsibility for preventing sexual assault has been put on their shoulders" %3D KATIE MCDONOUGH Follow draumbouy: wtttl: collababortion: kittydoom: salon: We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

superopinionated: teenboypopstar: thepeoplesrecord: Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits schoolSeptember 2, 2014 While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus. “I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.” Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication. So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.” Read more As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.  this is what a hero looks like This woman is my fucking hero. : superopinionated: teenboypopstar: thepeoplesrecord: Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits schoolSeptember 2, 2014 While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden.
