Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits schoolSeptember 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.

#SOCIALMEDIAANXIETIES is officially out! The first-ever compilation of affective accounts on social media (and a thing I kind of thought would never happen). Thanks to everyone who submitted.
View at ISSUU or download here. 

I’m gonna be making a few FULL-COLOR PRINT COPIES of the zine for the opening of Subplot Zine Shop in ATL. You want one? Let me know and I can factor it in at the press.

I want one. But I’m not in ATL. If that’s no good that’s OK.

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten/some] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

AH THIS IS SO HARD, OK, off the top of my head:

Mysteries of Small Houses - Alice Notley
the she said dialogues : fleshmemory - Akilah Oliver
Illuminations - Arthur Rimbaud
Loving in the War Years - Cherríe Moraga
Le Corps lesbien - Monique Wittig
Tropismes - Nathalie Sarraute
The Color Purple - Alice Walker
Dictee - Theresa Hak Kyung Cha
Not Me - Eileen Myles
Dutchman - Amiri Baraka
Autobiography of Red - Anne Carson

Also Audra put Julio Cortázar’s Rayuela (which I read in English as Hopscotch) & the collected Emily Dickinson on her list & if this could be longer they would definitely be on mine too. Ahhhh sorry, breaking the rules//oops already put 11 books instead of 10, so I guess this is like 13, “unofficially.”

Ok so both skunkdoily and ghoulchantsister tagged me & they already tagged a bunch of people whose responses I’m interested in, sooooo um, to tag some other people: vulturechow, cahun-caha, stainedglassgardens, curate, afterthecall, & even though I haven’t seen you much on tumblr lately: 2ofpentacles
