Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014

While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”

Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.

So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves. 

Where is the rapist’s information? why is his identity being withheld?

Today’s mental health reminder: a relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days, (or whatever your step back may be) does not decrease your value. Take your time, do some self care, reflect on the progress that you have made. You are strong; one step back is nothing when you look at the journey you have already made.

Needed to hear that

not all character development exists to make someone a better person

people turn into assholes, too. They become more  manipulative, arrogant, clingy, irritated… complex.

and that’s okay, that’s important.

explore that.

cute story: I have a friend with a prosthetic arm, and he once confided in me that, after seeing this movie, he’s always wanted someone to ask him for this. Then, the one day, I was at the grocery store with him and a couple other people, and one of our friends couldn’t reach a box on the shelf and asked him, “Dude gimme a hand here”. And, I swear to christ he practiced this because the speed at which he slipped off his prosthesis was blinding, and then he hurled his arm at her. He, unfortunately, got a tad overexcited, and instead of it just landing near her, it spun out and essentially bitchslapped her in mid-air.
Now we say it all the time around him, and he blames Disney for the fact that he has no girlfriend.

rest in peace, go eunbi. 
condolences to family,friends,and others who were injured/killed.
other fans,kpop or not,are here for you,ladies codes fandom.
stay strong. #prayforladiescode

Honestly, there isn’t a lot I can say on Eun B personality-wise because I’m not a fan. However I know she was an artist, a talented person, an idol, a living human being, who probably had goals and ambitions and wishes. She was young and still had a whole career a whole life ahead of her. She had family,friends, acquaintances, and friends and fans who are hurting right now.

Listen, I don’t care what fandom you’re in or from but this is a very, very hard time for all of them, especially the ones who lived/are trying to live through the accident.

Many people have just lost someone important to them. Many people are grieving. Do not let your ignorance and selfishness get the best of you.

Either pay your respects or simply be respectful. Don’t use this tragedy to make whatever point you wanna make about kpop and kpop fans. Don’t use this tragedy to further your own agenda. 

Most of all, don’t make this tragedy about you.

Your idol/idols are still alive. You will probably see them at X airport tomorrow.

I know it scares you that death (as it does all) that things like this can happen to them and some might of actually had some close calls but at the end of this day. They are still alive. This girl isn’t. Not to mention, others are still in critical condition.

So think before you speak and if you can’t then just don’t.

Be supportive or be silent.

Once again, rest in peace, Eunbi. You will be missed greatly.
