James Madison University, a well-known public university in my hometown of Harrisonburg, is handling the ‘worst case of sexual assault’ in their history by allowing the perpetrators to graduate and banning them afterward.

Meanwhile, the student who was assaulted lost her financial aid when her grades slipped while trying to deal with bringing her rapists to justice and had to leave school.

The links in question:

So even when there is absolute definitive proof on tape of an assault, the victim is paying the biggest price and the perpetrators are allowed to stay at school.

This is not right.

so its clear, the perpetrators are facing:

banned from campus after graduation (cannot go to commencement or tailgate in subsequent years (if the police recognize 4 white dudes))

banned from student organizations



that is it

"oh no
i cant go to commencement”

This sends the worst sort of message to the student body as well as the victim. “We’re only taking this seriously enough so as not to harm your reputations or careers in any way” . The problem being, these sort of moral lapses are supposed to have consequences- at least for people who aren’t the victims. 

I’m really quite tired of seeing universities intentionally fail the victims and enable the perpetrators. 

WHAT THE FUCK

So ashamed of my school….

a walk home in 20 degrees 

Salt stuck between the ridges of my shoes
Out of breath from my afternoons
A buzz.
A number.
A hum of rap.
An apology for running into you and you. And you.
A sound.
A signal.
A second guess.
Cold hands out of pockets,
Cold hands on metal,
Cold hands on him.
A taste of cheap liquor with a hint of cigarettes.

Good poem
