I started reading but then my brain started to die. I'm sure everything came together with brilliance and clarity later in the article, but is the writer's view that whether or not it's appropriation turns on how it's presented, or on who the designer is, or on who the model is, or what?

Also:
1. It's tough to tell, but that female model might be really attractive (cheekbones!), but if so they've done a pretty good job of hiding the fact and making her look like a transvestite vampire. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
2. "Zak Cheney-Rice" is totally a made-up name by somebody who aspires to be an NPR personality someday. Dude was undoubtedly born Jimmy Wilson or some such.

Very heteronormative of you to assume only women carry purses. Check your baggage privilege.

I'm sure no one considered that an Athabascan ain't an Ojibwe so one is culturally appropriating from the other. Different language trees folks, different culture.

I'm sure it's also patriarchal to assume that women should be able to look over the five billion variaties of smart phones and buy one of the many versions that actually fits in their hand.


Did I just mansplain? Trigger warning?

I don't know. The woman who posted that is someone I went to HS with. She is basically a 40 year old younger version of Elizabeth Warren. She made up some like 1/32nd Indian ancestry to try and get free college, she has said things like "I would literally be too afraid for my life to live in Texas [because her ideas are so radical those Texans would just kill her obviously]," and she generally is the one who posts all of the stuff I post in "dumb political shit your friends post"

I don't think you could have come up with a more unappealing description of someone

It worked then. She is how I know that at least some of these sjws aren't trolling.

Sorry to break ranks from the admittedly enjoyable "let's laugh at the idiots" tenor of this thread, but this is what a good article on "date rape" looks like: http://www.thenation.com/article/202353/entering-mind-my-rapist-exercise-extreme-empathy

Fun facts: her son played the young Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot; and she was married to a childhood friend of mine, though I have never met her.

Interesting read, Dopey. Shades of grey, and all that.

Seeking justice in a date rape will always be messy and prolonged, no matter the era, because it will always come down to a question of he said/she said.


I really get tired of hearing shit like this. I don't know who first coined the term but it represents a massive misunderstanding of the American criminal justice system.

First, what he says and what she says are not on equal terms. The jury does not have to believe the he (assuming that the he here is alleged perpetrator) to acquit him. It is the strength of the she's testimony that has to convince the jury beyond a reasonable doubt that the he is guilty. She must be believed, he does not.

Second, criminal defendants still have the right to refuse to testify, with no adverse inference should they choose to do so. So the "he said" should not be considered as a factor unless the he chooses to testify.

What if there had been a way for me to report the date rape to the administration, to define that crossing of boundaries in front of my rapist and a panel of well-trained adults, and to express, in a safe forum, my extreme disgust with his actions in such a way that my rapist would have been forced to at least listen to and ponder the hurt he’d caused, followed by sensitivity training and reeducation?


Oh jesus fucking christ.

Am I delusional?


Yes, but not for the reasons you think.

In a recent 2014 study, “Campus Sexual Misconduct: Restorative Justice Approaches to Enhance Compliance with Title IX Guidance,” authors Mary Koss, Jay Wilgus, and Kaaren Williamsen propose various well-constructed models for restorative justice—a k a “RJ”—in the handling of campus date rapes that I hope are at least being thoroughly read by university officials if not carefully and respectfully implemented as policy. It’s an excellent paper with excellent ideas. And it offers that elusive “third option” I was denied, post-rape, on that sad and painful morning of my college graduation.


I simply do not get this stupid obsession with having Colleges adjudicate sexual assault allegations. It's ridiculous, who wants to pay tuition to a board of assholes to determine whether you have to undergo forced reeducation?

A criminal justice system already exists. If you were raped, call the fucking cops. Otherwise just shut the fuck up you whiny cunt.

Quote:
the fact that one of us experienced it as a rape should have been enough to force an immediate discussion in which proving guilt, beyond a shadow of a doubt and at the expense of my reputation—a second rape, if you will—was not the goal


No American jurisdiction requires guilt be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt in rape cases. Get a clue.
