    It all seems so futile, so impotent and, at times, belittling. When I see trigger warnings, I think, “How dare you presume what I need to be protected from?” I find this argument absolutely boggling and infuriating. First, just because something can’t be done perfectly doesn’t mean it’s not worth doing. I mean, there will be [...]

    Why be polite when you can lecture people about being “responsible” for their PTSD symptoms?

    If you want to know what rapists are about, read “I Never Called It Rape.” They surveyed a bunch of college men who admitted to rape when the word wasn’t used (they euphemistically said “forced to have sex” or something similar to get honesty). It has actual data with context that doesn’t excuse or apologize [...]

    I emailed them this: “When I was in high school, I was always excited to read your magazine. I found it engaging and intelligent. Now I wonder whether it was merely being a teen that led me to that conclusion or whether an editorial tumble into the depths of the worst of evolutionary psychology has [...]

    ThumbnailJust in case anyone questioned that kids pick up on parents attitudes about weight. I thought this said a lot about it. “So, the other day, Olivia’s mother and aunt were having a conversation, and her Mom was fretting about how she’d been overeating this week and how she was going back on her diet the [...]

    I know this is a triggering topic for many and for myself (which is why I don’t feel up to doing it alone): could people possibly help me make a list of incidents of rape jokes on Family Guy? I have started keeping track of episodes but I think it would be interesting/shocking to see the [...]

  • Today, the extremist anti-abortion group Operation Rescue has launched a petition in order to keep Dr. Carhart from performing abortions in Wichita, Kansas. Operation Rescue has claimed that in order for Carhart to be able to perform abortions in Wichita, "he must have an arrangement for treatment of emergency cases with a local hospital". They are now [...]

    According to rhrealitycheck, Dr. LeRoy Carhart, who has stated that he will provide late-term abortions now that Dr. Tiller is gone, has been abandoned by the Federal Marshals that were protecting him from violence. Amidst increasing anti-choice violence and threats, including the murder of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas, one can only ask "why?". Now that [...]

    Friday afternoon, five minutes before our last orgo exam, I heard a friend of mine say to a group of young women that he had gotten a "funny" text from a friend. Its content? "I just took exam, now I know what being raped feels like." The other girls laughed. I tried to find a way to [...]

  • Anne Marie wrote a new blog post: Porn? In my University?   5 years, 3 months ago · View

    My university was planning to show Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge in the student theater with a presentation beforehand on safe sex from Planned Parenthood. "The film was provided to the university for free, so no student fees or state money was used to bring it to campus." However, that’s when the state senate got involved. "Sen. Andrew [...]

  • I was relieved by the wording of the title of a Diamondback article about a sexual assault. “Man rapes, abandons student off campus.” For the second time in my college career, I saw a headline where the emphasis was on the actions of the perpetrator instead of something that just “happened” to a victim. Then [...]
