I got kicked out of Evergreen in 1994 for anti-administrative graffiti I did because this was the kind of treatment victims were getting THERE, at one of the most liberal and progressive colleges in the country, and the student demands for change in policy and response were being swept under the rug. Awareness was raised and some change happened. But not enough. And this happens in all kinds of institutions.
Keep talking. Keep fighting. Keep opening eyes.
18 years later I still say FUCK THIS SHIT.
Kimya nails it.
PS Kimya, will you come play my backyard (we don’t have a basement).
