Don’t be friends with rapists

I’m glad we’ve all agreed to stop watching Woody Allen movies, to delete R. Kelly’s songs from our music libraries. But I also think we need to stop hanging out with the rapists we actually know.

Taking a stand against awful celebrities is important: it sends a clear message to our communities that we won’t tolerate violence. Cutting out of our lives people we never actually knew, though, is a lot easier than refusing to tolerate the abusers that surround us. I’m not talking here about survivors who struggle to leave bad people. I’m talking about the friends, the relatives who decide not to “take a side,” and in doing so, firmly side with rape culture.

Title IX enforcement is getting better, but the Education Department needs to do more

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Dana Bolger and John Kelly. Dana is a student at Amherst College and founder of Know Your IX. John is a student at Tufts University. They are both organizers of ED ACT NOW. (And an editor’s disclaimer: I’m a member of ED ACT NOW.)

Last July, dozens of survivors, activists, and allies descended upon the Department of Education (ED) in Washington, D.C. to demand that the federal government take seriously the violence that has been perpetrated against college students and better enforce Title IX compliance on our campuses. (Title IX is the landmark federal legislation that protects victims ...

College faculty, staff, and admin: anti-violence documentary needs your help!

A few months ago, I posted that the team behind the Invisible War is shooting a new documentary on campus sexual violence — and is looking for students to tell their stories. Now, the same team would like to talk to other members of educational communities. Producer Amy Ziering writes:

We’re an Oscar and Emmy nominated film team currently working on a film that  examines the proliferation of sexual assaults on college campuses, the devastating toll they take on survivors, their families and the community at large,  and the failure of institutions to seek appropriate redress for these crimes. We are looking to speak with  college and university staff, administrators, or faculty members (current or ...

Quick Hit: University of Edinburgh bans “Blurred Lines”

Here’s proof that campuses don’t need to be the cesspools of misogynistic violence they so often prove themselves to be.

The University of Edinburgh has banned Robin Thicke’s summer rape anthem “Blurred Lines,” also known as “No Means Yes, the Musical.” The Independent reports:

Featuring lyrics such as ‘I’ll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two’, the American’s international number one has sparked widespread criticism of sexism and been accused of referring to non-consensual sex in lines like ‘I hate these blurred lines, I know you want it’…

The campus ban on Thicke’s worldwide chart topper falls in line with ...
