It was a moment Anthony Carbajal will never forget: standing on the stage of one of TV’s most popular talk shows, fighting for a cause that touches him and his family profoundly. All while his mom looked proudly on.
Roses are red
Sunflowers are yellow
Is one fine looking fellow
IM STILL LAUGHING AT THIS
I CANT EVEN….
"guys we’re on tv"
I don’t know who’s better here…
Because everyone needs happy 5SOS on their feed.
A girl on my floor was raped last night, in her room, on her own carpet.
The police waited until the next morning to take action, by which time other students had already spoken out via chalk messages on the sidewalk outside our complex.
The carpet on the bench is where this girl was raped, the crime scene.
Police are “investigating” but have not made any arrests that I know of. No names have been released but regardless of identity, this is so wrong. Like the chalk says, this sort of thing is why we need feminism. This is why we need to stop teaching girls how to avoid rape and start teaching men not to do it in the first place. It sickens me that that even has to be taught.
It. Should. Not. Happen.
She didn’t ask for it. She didn’t want it. She was in her own room. Spread this.
I’ve gotten a lot of negative feedback on this so to clarify:
I’m not saying we need feminism to get the police to do their job. They’re investigating now, I just wish they’d done so earlier, when the call was actually made.
I realize that by taking the carpet, the students who did so were accidentally tampering with the crime scene.
Many of you are saying that the students acted inappropriately and acted too fast with this protest. Maybe. But whoever the rapist was acted inappropriately too, and THAT’S what the feminist chalk comments are addressing. They’re addressing the fact that this happens far too often on college campuses to just ignore it any longer. They’re addressing the fact that the chalk is being passed off by the school as “the exercising of first amendment rights” and not a response to an actual crime.
I know the police have a job to do and that it takes time. I also know that what happened here was wrong on so many levels, and the fact that rape is considered a societal aspect is why we need our voices heard.
