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.
