Anonymous, in a statement responding to the suicide of seventeen-year-old Retaeh Parsons of Nova Scotia, Canada. She was allegedly gang-raped by four boys, one of whom is known to have photographed the attack. The facts of the case bear a chilling resemblance to Steubenville, Ohio police’s own blind eye to the rape and assault of another young girl.
If law enforcement chooses not to act, Anonymous will.
Fuck yes I will.
All he wanted was a Pepsi…
Why would you write in to tell me that? To gloat?
Piss off, anon. Not all of us are as lucky as you.
They are $2775 per semester, but yes. They’ve been cut for many students.
When Republicans took the House majority in 2011, the first piece of legislation passed included $5.7 billion cut to Pell Grants, though the bill never made it through the Senate. Later, however, Pell Grants were cut during the debt ceiling debacle in the summer of 2011.
Then, in December 2011, when a government shutdown was looming, the deal congressional leaders struck included a provision which preserved the maximum Pell Grant, but reduced eligibility to use them from 18 semesters to 12. An estimated 62,000 to 100,000 students could be hurt by this change.
It doesn’t matter if you went full-time, part-time, or somewhere in the middle — if you use the Pell, it counts toward your limit. I knew I had 18 semesters, so when I was going to school part-time and working full-time, I expected it not to be a problem.
I’m not sure what wizardry financial aid did in the fall, but I wasn’t even supposed to get it then. But it ended this semester, not only for me, but several other people I know who are parents going part-time, or those who’ve worked full-time like I did.
Well, I have a degree in psychology, will graduate with my degree in Criminal Justice this spring, and I focused primarily on the intersection between social psychology, policy, and the law in my undergrad research. I also researched various forms of media and its effects on different demographics and balanced it all with a pre-law concentration focusing on conflict theory and economics.
So yes, I’m a DJ, but I also understand the implications of the articles and their methodology/conclusions.
In conclusion, piss off.
1. You are not a gentleman.
2. “Rape bait” — or people can wear whatever the fuck they want because you don’t get to rape people and blame it on them. If you’re calling women “rape bait,” it leads me to believe you’ve thought about it at least once. At the very least, you’re a misogynist who actively perpetuates rape culture.
3. Really? “PoliceMEN?” Are you fucking kidding me? Did you know there’s female cops? And we women can even wear pants now, too!
4. What’s more feminist is to work to end sexual violence, plus identifying and prosecuting perpetrators. And how about teaching people not to rape and assault others, versus pithy self-defense statements that put the responsibility of a rape on the victim who didn’t try hard enough, fight back, carry keys between the fingers, walked in the dark, had a vagina, didn’t have a vagina, was too young, too old, etc…
And by the way, referring to women as “rape bait,” and insinuating we need guns and turtlenecks to protect ourselves from heterosexual men unable to control themselves at the sight of our flesh is a rather insulting view of male sexuality, isn’t it?
I could say more, but I doubt you’re truly serious. If you were, I might take you seriously.
Oh, hi there anon! Glad you could crawl out from under your rock to join us.
