Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here. 

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.

We have had two turn arounds this morning! Now the security guard is throwing a hissy fit and shooing me away from clients with his umbrella. I was not having that so I gave him “the look” and told him babies are being dismembered, ain’t nobody got time for that. He is now massaging his temples as I sing Jesus loves the little children.

Yo, dude, you’re spending your time outside a clinic, scaring away people who may need a service, rather than actually helping people by - I don’t know - volunteering at a soup kitchen or a children’s hospital or doing something actually valuable with your time.
You’re not “changing minds,” you’re harassing people and scaring people who don’t need your defunct version of the Blue Steel.

One of the turn arounds was there to get a pregnant test and I sent her to a clinic that does them for free. The PP where I am charges a lot for them. The other lady came up to me and took the information then later she left on her own accord. 
I stand in front of the clinic to give information that the abortion industry won’t. The only harassment that happened today was the security guard when he was intimidating that couple by making them go into the parking lot.
If people want the info they initiate the contact by coming up to me or by rolling down the window. 
You can spin this around all you want, but I go out every morning and so many women tell me they don’t want to be here, they have no choice, no one will help them, I hate abortion but I don’t have health insurance, and just a full range of other concerns. 
Abortion doesn’t solve problems. It just creates more.
Just this past week I had three different girls (one in front of a high school, one at a college and a lady at my church) say they wished someone was out there for them. Marisa the little high school girl had tears in her eyes saying no one asked how she felt and no one would help her and why wasn’t I out there? That still hurts.
Reality is a lot bigger than Tumblr 

You harass people. You have the right to say whatever you want but you have no right to a trapped/captive/attentive audience. 73% of abortions happen because of poverty. Why not devote some time to paid maternity leave? Abolishing poverty? Is it really so hard to get off your ass to stop judging people and actually do something that matters?Guess it’s easier to mug it up for a selfie outside a health clinic than it is to actually help anyone. 

I would like to know what kinds of problems abortion causes that having giving birth would prevent.

Since I work at a clinic as an escort I know that the person who “took the literature and left of her own accord” was probably not at that clinic for a procedure. She was likely there to pick up BC, do a follow-up, or just pick up her records. 
And the whole “they initiate contact” thing is bullshit. You aren’t standing out there silently, so don’t even fucking pretend like you are, OP. The antis that stand outside my clinic *always* initiate contact by saying hello and greeting patients, and patients who have often driven for hours to a clinic they’ve never been to before will sometimes approach these people because “oh hey, someone is talking to me” and that is just what you do. 
That’s how ya’ll operate. Don’t play otherwise. Because when an escort is there to intercept the patient they don’t say “hold on a minute I want to talk to this stranger with a pamphlet standing behind the fence asking me how far along I am in a pregnancy they don’t even know with any certainty I’m experiencing as if it’s their business anyway”.
They say “wow, thanks for being here, I really don’t want to talk to these people”.
So yeah, it is harassment. And you CPC-promoting assholes know it. For the most part ya’ll have copious state funds with which to advertise your services. You don’t need to be outside an abortion clinic. You do it for the harassment factor. 
Because when a woman doesn’t want to talk to you is when you call her a murderer as she’s walking through the double doors. 
So yeah, all that shit you just said is bullshit and no one cares. Get the fuck away from that clinic, you have no business being there and you’re an asshole, OP. No one is impressed by you.

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

Hate to burst your bubble but this:

Is horseshit. The “Dark Ages” didn’t actually happen and there were a number of other factors contributing to why we didn’t advance as much as we could have. They could have had steam engines in Ancient Greece, but various factors prevented this.
This is a very oversimplified and inaccurate way of looking at history.

aight let me say this tho. when biphobic lesbians say things like ‘i don’t wanna be anywhere a guy has been” or the more cissexist/transmisogynistic “i don’t wanna be anywhere a dick has been”

you’re. kind of treating a bi woman like a used object. and totally qualifying her based on her past experiences. and deciding what does or does not impact her worth and “purity.”

and ur a piece of crap.
