Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014
While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.
“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”
Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She alsofiled a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.
So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”
As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
DO YOU SEE THIS? DO YOU? ALL OF YOU WHO HAD WRITTEN OFF PLUTO, WHO HAD CROSSED IT OFF YOUR PLANET LIST? REMEMBER HOW IT WAS ‘TOO SMALL” TO BE A PLANET? HOW NASA, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION REMOVED ITS PLANETARY STATUS AND CHANGED ITS NAME TO 134340? HOW EVERYONE THEN CONSIDERED THERE TO BE EIGHT PLANETS, NOT NINE?
BUT SOME OF US REMAINED LOYAL TO PLUTO. IT WAS NEVER FORGOTTEN. AND NOW HERE WE ARE, AND JUSTICE IS UPON US AFTER 8 YEARS.
BECAUSE GUESS WHAT? PLUTO HAS AT LEAST FIVE MOONS, A PRETTY BIG NUMBER FOR A ”DWARF-PLANET”, HUH? ESPECIALLY WHEN EARTH, QUITE BIGGER THAN PLUTO AND AN OFFICIAL PLANET ONLY HAS ONE. AND GUESS WHAT ELSE? ERIS, THE PLANET WHICH EVERYONE THOUGHT TO BE BIGGER THAN PLUTO, MAY NOT BE BIGGER AFTER ALL. AND THE BEST PART IS THAT PLUTO HAS AN ATMOSHPERE. THAT’S RIGHT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, A SUPPOSEDLY NON-PLANET HAS AN ATMOSPHERE. AGAIN, ISN’T THAT IMPRESSIVE?
SO LOOK AT THIS. NEW FINDINGS, AND A NEW AGE FOR PLUTO. AN AGE OF RECOGNITION AND APPRECIATION. AND ALLOW ME TO CLOSE THIS -somewhat aggressive-PRESENTATION OF OPINION WITH THE MOTTO OF THE PLUTO APOLOGISTS: VIVA LA PLUTO!
Get “Viva la Pluto” to be a trending tag
The Pluto fandom doesn’t fuck around
Let me tell you what this article says and how it is twisted.
To be a planet it must be round, orbit the sun, and clean out any debris in it’s orbit. Pluto has failed to do the latter so even a petition won’t bring Pluto back.
The thing about Pluto’s five moons? They’re irregular, not round. This often happens in the Kyper belt. Still doesn’t make it a planet.
Just because Pluto is a few miles wider than Eris doesn’t mean shit. They would both have to be planets if Pluto were accepted. As well as planets near that size (and there are tons).
Pluto has an atmosphere? Only part of the year. It isn’t like life could EVER be there. Even when the atmosphere is there it doesn’t mean shit because it is too weak.
OHANA MEANS FAMILY AND FAMILY MEANS NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND
THEN PLEASE NAME EVERY DWARF PLANET NEAR THE KYPER BELT, ONLY KNOW ERIS AND PLUTO??? HOW ABOUT THAT GETTING LEFT BEHIND THING
WELL FIRST OFF THERE ARE
1. MORE THERE ARE A SHIT LOAD OF THEM TOO MANY TO COUNT
2. THEY WERE NEVER PART OF THE FAMILY
TO BE EXCLUDED LIKE PLUTO THEY HAD TO ONCE BE LIKE PLUTO YOU CANT HAVE A FAMILY OF PEOPLE AND LATER KICK ONE OUT BECAUSE IT DOESNT FIT YOUR REQUIREMENTS AND IF YOU DO YOURE AN ASSHOLE
scientifically youre-a-winchester-sammy youre right but you have to think of morals
IF CANT PLUTO CANT BE EXCEPTED WHO CAN
If a bunch of scientists can say no, then I can say yes
kinda really want to see a bitter, angry version of empty chairs at empty tables, give me closed eyed tears at oh my friends and clenched fists at meet no more, kick a chair at what your sacrifice was for, give me a bitter, falling apart marius seeing the ghosts of his friends and hating the system that put them in their shallow graves
thinking you passed a test but failing anyways
thinking you failed, but then passing by a few points
Does anyone else feel really guilty when they start talking about their own feelings and then immediately regret saying anything because you just feel so annoying and pathetic and ugh
