Rape culture at its worst. The details of this woman’s experience should be enough to make anybody take a stand against sexual violence, yet Eugene’s District Attorney has declined to press charges.
One of the three players was involved in a sexual assault investigation at a previous school. There will be no charges in the case.
The District Attorney’s decision to drop charges against these players is, without a doubt, an indicator of this school’s complete inability to make our campus a safe place for survivors of sexual assault and those who are at risk of becoming victims. The University of Oregon has long received criticism for being a school that values athletics above academics, but it’s truly disheartening to discover that school officials and law enforcement also value athletics above basic human rights and safety.
Píntame una mujer peligrosa
una que coma culebras
una que ladre
que se peine la barba
una mujer con la vagina violada
con las tetas caídas
una que singue y goce
una que tenga cucarachas aladas
al lado de la cama
píntamela para poder mirarme al espejo
