NO IT REALLY IS HIS BIRTHDAY LOOK IT UP
don’t talk to me if your otp isn’t ron/mcgonagall
UNC Chapel Hill is a school which has received a lot of recent criticism over handling of sexual assault cases, to put it mildly. In this Jezebel article they discuss how the former dean of students was told to underreport cases of sexual violence. It’s been a messy and incredibly victim blaming situation, which has resulted in students filing against the Dept of Education. The girl Andrea, quoted in both of these articles is both a survivor and a friend of mine. She is utterly remarkable and so brave and resillient despite the stuff she has faced from administrators. Another mentioned, Landen Gambill, has been told that she has violated the honour code of the school for creating an ‘intimidating environment’ for her rapist, despite the fact she has NEVER identified him by name. She asked if, by being raped, she had violated the honour code and they said yes. They said YES. I am basically shaking as I’m writing this and we need your help because this is not just a problem here, and this same stuff is probably happening across college campuses. Please, please share this, send the message out that NO ONE should ever be punished for their rape or treated the way these, and other women have been. Please help us bring some attention to this. We need you.
Update: Andrea speaks out:
I still deal with the physical and detrimental mental effects of my rape, and they haunt me daily,
But nothing has scarred me more that hearing how my University, whose seal I wear proudly around my neck, has purposely silenced the voices of my fellow survivors.
I feel unsafe at UNC, because I have felt the screams trapped in my throat, and I have heard the stories of survivors. I have heard the stories of survivors who reported, who asked for help, who went through the process, and who lost - their stories are just like mine.
I have listened to, and relived these stories because no one else wants to believe it happens here.
It’s destroying me, because, in spite of the betrayal and the blood shed, Carolina is still in my mind.
After years, months, and hours of writing our stories, reliving our nightmares, and speaking out, our University chooses to maintain that silence. They will only respond to a complaint, they will only deny underreporting numbers, and are determined to fight us down.
But, we did not survive an attack on our lives to let the school we love mark us and ignore us.
We did not survive sexual assault to let this University shame us away.
Not without a fight.
thank you so so much to you who have helped spread the word, please tweet #standwithlanden!
Atoms For Peace - What the eyeballs did
Woman: “I woke up and you guys were taking advantage of me.”
Moreno: “Nobody took advantage of you.”
Woman: “You were having sex with me. I was violated.”
Moreno: “No you weren’t — nothing happened.”
Woman: “You’re lying.”
Moreno: “OK. It turned from us trying to help you to getting really crazy.”
Moreno: “What do you remember?”
Woman: “I remember getting up the stairs and waking up on the bathrooom floor. The next thing I know, I’m in my bed, you’re taking off my clothes and having sex with me.”
Moreno: “It wasn’t done intentionally. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I just got caught up. I’m sorry.”
Woman: “I need to know if I’m OK. Did you wear a condom — yes or no?”
Moreno: “Yes, I did. You don’t have to worry about any diseases or getting pregnant.”
Woman: “Was it only you?”
Moreno: “It was only me.”
Moreno: “If you stop drinking, I’ll be your boyfriend. I’m not a bad man. I’m a good friend to have.”
MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING: rape, instructions to rape
My friend who goes to Miami University in Ohio sent me this picture of a flier that was taped up in a men’s bathroom there. I don’t need to explain why this is horrifying, do I? She’s asked that we signal boost the shit out of it and get the word out about the degree to which rape culture pervades the campus. Please help her out with that if you can.
this is fucking disturbing..
I know I’m not Tumblr famous and I don’t know how many people are going to actually see this but for those that will see this, I just want them to know that this sort of thing happens all the time at my old school, and I’m getting sick of it. They tried to contact that media and it doesn’t seem to be working. I just want people to know that we need this to stop. If we could do something to help this situation, I don’t know what but something, it would help a lot. Nobody deserves this.
this is horrifying, and i sincerely hope op keeps spreading the word. i might even suggest a change.org petition — i think they are pretty good at spreading awareness and getting people’s attention on a larger scale. i’m really sorry for op and his sister. stuff like this makes me sick, and the sheriff’s reaction is DISGUSTING homophobic shit. op wants to raise awareness and is comfortable with this, so i hope it goes viral!
Fact: On my way to work yesterday I was wondering how long it would be before they did this.
So now we don’t even need men to have kids.
we don’t even need men to have kids
Two things that just happened:
I just had an image of feminists killing off all men and raising a flag on top of the highest peek of the Earth claiming this to be a woman’s planet. Keeping men in cages for pleasure or just killing them all off.
and the second thing was
I cried a little. Yes, I loathe children. But… I the thought of possibly having a child with my future wife that is ours and ours alone… I’m in tears.
WE DID IT
WE NO LONGER NEED MEN
on another note of this
does that mean that FTM Men can also have biological kids with their partners??
I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t! THIS IS SO COOL
Hooray for science!
