Nothing in the world smells as good as the person you love.
Somewhere on the brink of insanity, I fell in love with the idea of destroying myself.

I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here. 

So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowitz.

In her school hearing, Sulkowitz ” had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”

"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."

FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST

- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus

- When she went to the police, one officer said: “”You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”

- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”

And that’s.
Why.
People.
Don’t.
REPORT.

I want to set literally everything on fire.

A grassroots movement to help Emma Sulkowicz carry her mattress has already begun.

I feel sick.  

But the paper part tho! Actually wtf.

I’ve only just accepted that my mom is emotionally abusive. On some days with my mom it’s like I can’t do anything right. Anything I will say will make her angry. I’ll try to walk away from her verbal attacks, try to leave to be with my friends who support me, but she doesn’t even allow me that. By either physically trying to stop me, not allowing me to take the car, or telling me I shouldn’t be hanging out with my friends when I’m “walking away from the most important person in my life”.
It hurts me so much every time i think about it. My mother is the only person who can break me, she has done it for years. Years of verbal abuse, of being told i am useless heartless fat slut just like my father, selfish , a burden. But she has also caressed me afterwards bought me presents and told me she loves me. I feel like i am in an abusive relationship. Probably i am. I cant handle it anymore i want to leave this shit hole
