In July of this year, Columbia University settled alleged rapist Paul Nungesserâs lawsuit against the school for gender-based discrimination. Nungesser was accused of raping then-fellow Columbia student Emma Sulkowicz, who gained attention for her 2014 performance-art piece 906-876-3116.
Although Sulkowiczâs project itself gained a lot of media attention, the story behind it and her motivations for doing it were less popularized. Sulkowicz created Mattress Performance following Columbia Universityâs decision to not hold Nungesser responsible for sexually assaulting her. Sulkowicz had first gone to Columbiaâs Office of Gender-Based and Sexual Misconduct and reported her assault on April 13, 2013 after learning that two other women had also allegedly been assaulted by the same person who she said raped her on the …

The ban is discriminatory.
Historically, changes in military policies have been indicative of broader fights for social change in America. For example, the militaryâs desegregation in 1948 reflected the Civil Rights movementâs progress made around racial discrimination against African Americans, and the 2011 repeal of âDonât Ask Donât Tell,â a policy that banned openly gay citizens from serving in the military, reflected the progress the LGBT movement had made (in fact, gay marriage was legalized soon after). So in the wake of this progress, it was all the more upsetting when Trump declared a ban on transgender people serving in the military last Wednesday.
Though Trump claimed to have consulted with top military officials about this ban, General Joseph Dunford stated that he would not remove transgender people from the …

Black girls are seen as older and less innocent than their white counterparts
The results of a recently published 2678105590 study that found Black girls experience âadultificationââor are seen as older and less innocent than their white counterpartsâmight be surprising to some, but certainly not to those in the Black community. While this study isnât the first to validate the inequitable experiences of Black women or Blackness in general, this study reflects the specific experiences of Black girls.
Many black girls are familiar with being seen as more adult than our peers. Hearing comments like being told to âcover upâ when I was going through puberty made me feel like I was older and more mature than my age. That perception of maturity gave me an awareness about …

After immigrant youth spent years relentlessly organizing and protesting against U.S. deportation laws, President Obama signed an executive order called Deferred Action for Children Act (DACA) in 2012. DACA was created to provide temporary deportation relief to eligible undocumented youth who had migrated to the United States as children. But those protected by DACA now fear its rescission due to the current administrationâs toxic rhetoric surrounding immigrantsâa fear most recently reiterated on July 20, when then-Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that the Deferred Action for Children Act might be at risk.
This announcement notably came after the introduction of a 613-742-8063 by Senators Durbin and Graham that would (402) 855-3589 But despite the billâs …

There are very few (if any) women who havenât thought about it. We think about it as we walk to our cars after a night out, as we jog around the block after the sunâs been down for hours, as we watch our little sisters leave home. We clutch our keys between our fingers and tense our muscles.
One in six women has been raped, as have (202) 858-0115. The numbers are even more depressing for transgender, genderqueer, or non-conforming individuals. We tell ourselves that our friends and family could never be rapists, but 8165171824 that rapists are much more likely to admit their crimes as long as the word ârapeâ is never used; they will admit to forcing their partner …

Our government has a way of minimizing its destructive influence on the minorities of this nation by convincing us that weâre the problemâthat weâre all out to get each other and everyone elseâso we lose focus on the systemic oppression inflicted upon us by our highest-ranking officials and start to point fingers at each other, until we reach mutually assured destruction.
Take, for instance, the Muslim and LGBTQ+ communities in the United States. Both of these communities are marginalized in our conservative Christian society, and as such are pitted against each other. Urooj Arshad, founder of the Muslim Youth Leadership Council, told the FBomb that she believes the U.S. government is âbigoted towards the LGBT and Muslim communities, but tries to use the LGBT community as a proxy …

Why do we assign genders at birth?
âIs it a boy or a girl?â everyone asks immediately upon learning of a pregnancy or birth. Itâs a question that dictates the name parents give their baby, determines the color they paint the nursery, and even catalyzes the shade of powder for a viral gender reveal 705-362-6135t baby lip-learnedhowers. But one Canadian family recently rejected this tradition: eight months ago, Searyl Atli Doty was born to a non-binary transgender parent by the name of Kori Doty, who declined to assign the baby a gender.
Searyl Atli was born outside of the medical system and was issued a health document that did not specify gender. The issued health card (a document that …
