So, I for one am completely and totally against a witch-hunt, speculating “who’s next”, etc. And I’m not about to accuse Jason Munday of any illegal behavior or misconduct in relationships, because I have no evidence or inklings of such.
However, I AM going to fucking accuse him of responding to a young woman’s legitimate qualms and concerns over the rape culture with belittlement and anger.
Yeah, go back up and read that again. Jason Munday just said that if you don’t want to live in the rape culture then too fucking bad. His awful, sarcastic solution to escape abuse and rape? Just remove yourself from all men and thus, culture at large, until placed in an arranged marriage.
I’m not saying Jason’s statements here are on par with the level of awfulness that Luke and Alex’s actions lie on. But what he said is entirely reprehensible, and should not be forgotten.
The full quote [1:56 in the video]:
Jimmy: What should you do if you feel pressured within a relationship to maybe have sex, or to send explicit pictures, or to do anything you don’t feel comfortable with?
Carrie: It’s about having the confidence and the self-esteem and the self-respect to say ‘I don’t want this’, ‘I don’t wanna do this.’
(Note: this quote is followed by a discussion on consent, which is important, but it does approach it from the angle of ‘oh that can be quite romantic’ rather than ‘hey that’s a legal obligation’.)
three seconds spent reviewing evodevo and I’m already bored shitless
I thought I heard my phone ring in the next room but decided to be lazy and let it go to voicemail and then I agonized about how lazy that decision was for like a solid minute before realizing that I was literally holding my phone and I had imagined it ringing
Mary Jones takes pride in the neatly tucked corners of her bed and the spotless countertops of her kitchen in the small efficiency apartment she calls home in northern New Jersey. A little sign next to the front door reminds her: “Success starts with a single step!”
Born partially blind and with cerebral palsy, Jones savors the independence of living on her own with just weekly visits from an aide. So when she was offered work at a local Goodwill charity store in the fall of 2012, Jones said, she looked forward to the independence of a job. But the reality was much different.
“They had me downstairs in their store, trying to hang clothes up on the hangers,” Jones said. “And to make a dollar, I had to hang a hundred pieces. If I was lucky, I made 50 cents. It was a penny per item of clothing. I felt worthless. I just didn’t want to go. They made me feel bad because I couldn’t work fast enough.” Jones is not using her real name out of a fear of retribution.
desperately want to audit an MIT seminar next semester but it’s a credit/non class? but on the other hand I would be taking 5.75 credits if I took it for credit?? but also credit nons especially not at wellesley are hella easy??? but also there’s no real benefit to taking a course credit/ non versus auditing because I won’t get a gpa bump either way so I may as well audit since I don’t need the credit???? but if I audit will I have incentive to show up when it’s like a 45 min trip each way????? but I’ve wanted to take an MIT class since day one and this is my last chance?????? BUT
I always mix up ASOIAF and TFIOS so I’ll read a post tagged TFIOS saying “I hate Gus he’s so pretentious” and be like “who the fuck is Gus? Which house is he? Is he a Frey? A Lannister? From across the narrow sea? Is he dead yet?”
One of the things about coming to college is learning to adapt to new experiences.
Wellesley is a traditionally women’s school. That means that most students identify as women. That means that (just like at any other school) there will be students who are sexually attracted to other women.
I came from the south and pretty homophobic parents so I say from experience that prior to college I had never met a female-identified lady-lover my own age before, but my very first best friend at Wellesley happened to be a lesbian. Certainly I had a lot of questions, as any curious person does when faced with a new experience/culture/ etc. But I was respectful.
If your roommate is into girls, and you are not, it is perfectly okay! If your roommate is into you and you’re not, she will certainly pick up on your uninterested vibes and not embarrass herself.
But one important thing to note is that Wellesley will not, does not make people start liking girls. Some people come to Wellesley confident in their sexuality; some come open minded, experiment, and decide girls aren’t their cup of tea, or maybe they are. Some come scared and unaware of what it means to be queer and discover that queer people are no different from straight ones and just as fun to hang around. However, one of the things we love about Wellesley is that it is a diverse campus, a welcoming campus. Being roomed with someone of a differing sexual orientation from yourself will not be reason for you to change rooms. Your roommate could become a best friend; or just be someone you see every day like a sibling; but whatever your relationship, it should be cordial, on both ends.
This response was supposed to be diplomatic bc it’s associated with the Wellesley name but if you’re homophobic, Wellesley is not the place for you. And if you’re so concerned, your roommate wouldn’t be too happy about living with you either. Sorry boo. Wellesley will not make you gay but hopefully it will open your eyes to being accepting of people of all walks of life.
