Is reporting campus sexual assault a dead end?

22 Jun

The woman’s father called the Rev. Thomas Doyle, a high-ranking Notre Dame administrator, to express his anger. After listening to his concerns, Doyle suggested they pray together over the telephone, the father said.

“We’re as Catholic as they come,” the woman’s mother said. “But are you serious? Pray on this? That was not good enough.”

The woman now wonders if she should have ever reported the incident to police. An estimated 95 percent of college students who are victimized do not report sexual-related crimes to law enforcement, according to a study funded by the Justice Department.

“It’s a long, painful process, and in the end, nothing happened,” she said. “The only way a boy would be guilty is if he said, ‘Oh, yes, I did rape her.'”

The Mile High Club

23 Mar

A group of men from my home county (shoutout to the Skook!) is asking people to join the mile high club.There’s no flying necessary. All you need to do is walk a mile in some high heels.

To promote their walk-a-thon, these awesome gents made a high-larious video, which includes men riding ATVs, hunting, karate-chopping, and drinking burrs (translation:beer) in some crazy high heels.

Oh, and the best part? All money raised from the walk goes to Schuylkill County’s Sexual Assault Resource and Counseling Center (SARCC).

Walk on, gentlemen.
