The absence of women in history is man made.

How petty

Columbia Law School may not have a room 126, but it strangely has a room 102b. And now it has a post-it note.

MY FACE IS ON 12(b)(6) !! AHHHH!!

I would also like to say I got caught doing this by the school’s CPA and had to explain myself.

WORTH IT.

The realist part of this trailer is when Daya says to…the guard (can’t remember his name)…that he has power and she has none because she’s an inmate.

So.

Real.

Woke up to this.
It’s going to be a good (fri)day!

Fun Fact: I am VERY bad a hydrating myself. If I ever die unexpectedly it’s probably because I just forgot to drink water for a week.

I can’t believe how lucky I am that I get to call this girl my friend. She’s the bravest, smartest, and most compassionate person I know, and she’s full of wisdom beyond her years. Happy 24th birthday, Aimee!! Can’t wait until we aren’t transcontinental friends anymore!! (In honor of #tbt and @aimee_itscoldoutside ‘s birthday, please enjoy these semi-embarrassing pictures from 2007, when no one had an iPhone and the Valencia filter to avoid looking washed-out and overexposed :-) )

Trigger warning for rape, police incompetence.

My blood is boiling over right now, reading this. One of the reasons sexual assault is vastly underreported is because of the insensitivity of police, who frequently blame the victim of the assault or accuse her of lying. I know that sounds harsh, but if we don’t start coming down hard on the systems that perpetuate rape culture, nothing is ever going to change. Anyone working in the field of law or law enforcement should be required to undergo training in trauma-informed counseling. The rest of us need to take a stand to ensure that this disgusting story is never repeated.

 I can’t put my finger on what is worst in this story (i.e. which system failed the victim the most): the UTTER APATHY of the policeman doing the investigation, the approval of his superiors of his horrible investigative work, or the response of the school community to the allegations.
The phenomenon of victim blaming/shaming has many sources, not the least of which are peer doubtfulness (“Oh, well, she had been drinking a lot that night…”) and the popular media (“Was she dressed like a slut? She had it coming.”) etc.

Another problem in this story, of course, is the college athletics aspect; at the very end of the story, the author discusses how when the story broke, the people at the school were so quick to come down on her as lying and holding him out as a stand-up guy. GAH. NO WONDER rape is underreported. When you read stories like this it really should come as no surprise.

I AM SO DISGUSTED.

I’ve actually lost friends at my school because of this. I feel your pain and I would like to say that I am sorry. I am ashamed of the reactions of my classmates. I’m ashamed of the shoddy police work. It’s egregious and the worst kind of rape apologist bullshit. 

Oh girl, I feel all of your pain. I currently go to Penn State (ha, yeah, PSU is so good about responding to sexual assault allegations…OH, and we just hired FSU’s old president. Joy!) I have literally seen people put their hands over their ears when someone makes a completely accurate statement about rape apologist Joe Paterno. I feel that people like you and me need to spread these stories like wildfire, call the guilty out on their shit, and make sure they’re held accountable.

And obvs, you are too good to be friends with anyone who thinks any part of this story is okay.
