The face of a girl that wishes she was at home in bed right now. Or had coffee. #TooTired

I love every aspect of this.
NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.
Dear Professor [name],
My name is [Preferred name], and I will be attending your course [blank] on [days] at [time] this [term]. I am transgender and have not yet legally changed my name. On your roster is my legal name, [Legal name]. I would greatly appreciate it if you refer to me as [Preferred name] and use [pronouns] when referring to me. Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to starting your course next week.
So I’m moving into a new apartment, and I was told that the room had been damaged, but nothing could have prepared me for the fact that someone had carved Li Shang’s head out of the bathroom door and written “We must defeat the Huns!” on it.
They really got down to business.
Amazingly, not The Onion:
“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”
I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION
NO NO NO
Please actual read this article
The title is shitty
Bu the content does not really reflect the title!
The article is responding to another piece (that does seem like an Onion article)
But the article itself has gems like:
An incoming freshman from North Carolina named Clark Coey told Bloomberg that he is aware of the schools that are under investigation for Title IX violations, and is “concerned how [consent] will be defined when other students, including women, may be using drugs and alcohol that affect their decision-making.”
However, I am sad that he is apparently the only one of the group that said this:
Coey is the only person interviewed in the piece who makes clear that more education is needed to address consent and healthy relationships in the brave new world of university life. “I haven’t learned anything about consent since I was a freshman in a health class,” he said. “They have to give you a better understanding of what’s right and what’s wrong.”
The misleading title prevents us from actually reading the piece in which the author, Katie McDonough, addresses the problem that men are “woried that the movement to take date rape seriously is runining their sex lives”
This is what happens when we when we publish stupid piece after stupid piece blaming women’s behavior for sexual assault, when we don’t encourage young people to communicate openly and regularly during romantic and sexual encounters, when we don’t teach affirmative consent or really any kind of sex education.
Sadly, to get our attention, the poorly titled article is used and people jump to conclusions without reading it. So yes, men believe the content of the title, but the article is not supporting it or even just addressing it, they are responding to it
And that is what we need, rather than just getting angry about it, we need to respond and take action. If you are a college student, check the policiies and reports and make sure the Dean of Students (usually the office covering conduct) is responding appropriately to sexual assault cases. If you aren’t, call your senators, march in rallies, take action in any way you can!
