Rape Culture at DePaul University

enasshole:

So this just went up on campus to protest the university’s response to allegations that a depaul athlete raped a young woman at a party. The university has turned a blind eye towards the allegations and have made little to no progress in terms of disciplinary action against the athlete. Students are suggesting that the University is more focused on its new stadium and burgeoning football plans to care about a measly rape allegation.

We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work.

Knowledge is for me that which must function as a protection of individual existence and as a comprehension of the exterior world. I think that’s it. Knowledge as a means of surviving by understanding.
