Emma Sulkowicz: The Girl who Cried Rape



Perhaps you have heard of the Columbia University student who is carrying around her mattress on campus as both a protest and as a visual arts project intended to drive her rapist out of the University. Quoting:

[Emma] Sulkowicz said she was assaulted in her dorm room by a classmate on the first day of her sophomore year. She accuses Columbia administrators of mishandling the investigation into the incident, and has protested the dismissal of her case against the assailant, particularly as two other women have claimed they also were raped by the same man in separate incidents.

Holy shit. If there needs to be a picture in the dictionary next to the entry "attention whore", this cunt has the job. As you see from the picture above, my interpretation of her protest is it must have felt pretty damn great being raped, if you carry around your mattress as a memento. Most people who get raped carry things like ... oh, I don't know ... pepper spray, or a gun, or even a dinky whistle. This bitch carries around her mattress. Does Emma Sulkowicz keep a display case on her wall with the semen-stained panties she wore the night of the assault? Does she keep the unwashed blanket upon which she was raped, and wrap herself in it while studying for finals? Does she keep the song she was raped to on her iPod and play it during family dinners? Quoting Emma, "This is the song I was raped to. Would you please pass the stuffing?"

    1. I am glad you enjoyed it. I have been meaning to set up a Wordpress site, but by golly do I have a niggerish level of laziness. I think it was about six months ago I got as far as creating the front page and gave up.

  2. That's fucked up, dude. Do you think rape is cool? Who cares if she is a fucking attention whore, I don't care if she walks around butt naked, it's not okay.
