…mattress in protest of the administration’s exoneration of a fellow student she said had raped her. Though I was obviously in no position to know for sure what had happened (no one but the two people involved are in any such position), the sudden national obsession with female endangerment on college campuses struck me much the same way it had in the early 1990s: well-intended but ultimately infantilizing to women and essentially unfeminist.
Or maybe women are just in danger? WTF? Why all the god@mn over thinking? If people are getting knocked over the head, dragged behind dumpsters and raped — maybe just maybe, campus life is dangerous for women? Ya think?
Nah! Of course not! God forbid we face the truth about any goddamn thing! God forbid!
Rape is great! All the true feminists think so!
