A girl on my floor was raped last night, in her room, on her own carpet.
The police waited until the next morning to take action, by which time other students had already spoken out via chalk messages on the sidewalk outside our complex.
The carpet on the bench is where this girl was raped, the crime scene.
Police are “investigating” but have not made any arrests that I know of. No names have been released but regardless of identity, this is so wrong. Like the chalk says, this sort of thing is why we need feminism. This is why we need to stop teaching girls how to avoid rape and start teaching men not to do it in the first place. It sickens me that that even has to be taught.
It. Should. Not. Happen.
She didn’t ask for it. She didn’t want it. She was in her own room. Spread this.
“Action will remove the doubt that theory cannot solve.” – Petryl Hsieh
You can spend your whole life thinking and theorizing, but it is only through action that you gain clarity. I’ve noticed that theory can only take me so far. When I actually start taking action, things are much different than in theory….I can THINK about taking a walk all day but when I DO it then I have the clarity and don’t have to keep on the theory aspect anymore! -Source
I just saw a post on facebook and I can’t take it anymore. There’s this video where a kitten is placed in a plastic bucket, doused with gasoline and set on fire alive, while the kids laugh out loud. It’s still on Facebook and apparently it does not violate Facebook’s “community standards.”
A lot of people have tried to report videos and fanpages where violence, abuse and hate is spread towards animals. We want Facebook to reconsider those “standards” and change them.
I know removing those things won’t stop the abusers or make them pay for what they did, but we can stop their motivation to share the cruelty, it’s the least thing we can do.
