I walked into my first class this morning to see a talk being advertised that supposes that rape is not a problem in the United States, that women will know a rapist when we see one, that rape isn’t a problem on college campuses.
I wanted to cry. Instead I wrote down that Take Back The Night was scheduled for the same night.
And then I erased the details about the talk.
Accidentally of course. I was just so nauseous and had to take notes during class and was about to cry that I couldn’t concentrate and after all, it was distracting me.
For some reason, I can’t publish links right now- but HERE IS THE LINK to a petition asking my administration to condemn Professor Ted Everett’s disgusting colloquium that is creating such a hostile environment for survivors.
I have 4000+ followers. This petition asks for 500 signatures and already has over 100. Please sign. It would mean the world to me. I want to go to class and not have to stare at a chalkboard telling me my rape didn’t matter. That I should’ve known better. That it was my fault.
