Re: “The quintessential coming-of-age question 'What do you want to do with your life?' doesn't scare this college student

"There is no greater happiness than helping someone else." Amid a modern American culture that too often seems to glorify narcissism and unearned fame, wealth and "winning" at the expense of others, the clear-eyed wisdom of an modest and unselfish 19-year old woman shines like an evening star. Thank you, Clara. You're an inspiration.

Such a wonderfully written piece from a bright young woman. If only every young college student took their opportunity to study and change the world so seriously. I wish I had.

Re: “A Predators fan on coming to terms with the NHL's rape allegations

Isolated incidents involving two of the league's thousand or so players.... Overreact much? I am guessing you hate football? Because they actually have a problem on their hands. You want a moral dilemma how about watching NFL games knowing very well the participants are going to be unable to function like normal humans in 30 years. People who support the NFL are such hypocrites.

Re: “A Predators fan on coming to terms with the NHL's rape allegations

I'm feeling conflicted about watching hockey now. The excitement of a new season about to start isn't there anymore and I have an uneasy feeling in my gut.

Re: “From UVA to UT and beyond, the response to victims who bravely step forward is downright disgusting

Dear BOOB,

I do feel great frustration with the journalist who got hoodwinked and failed to perform basic journalistic due diligence. But one poorly reported story in no way means that rapes aren't happening on campuses. I doubt that you are an expert on what goes on in dorm rooms and party houses on American campuses, despite your comical overconfidence and the delight you take in mansplaining and employing the caps lock key. Do I feel "safer"? I'm not even sure what you mean. I will say that being small and female leaves a person feeling vulnerable in ways that I'm not sure you will ever really understand.

I long ago lost count of how many people (not all of them female, BTW) who have quietly shared their stories with me of being attacked or molested by uncles, grandfathers, fathers, pastors, teachers, their friends' fathers, their friends, fellow students, boyfriends, and occasionally, strangers. So is there a "crisis"? There's no real answer to that, since we haven't defined or quantified the term. But I'm here to tell you, this is happening to actual people. And when something like this happens to you personally, I an assure you: it's a crisis.

Most of all, you've missed the whole point of basically everything in your last line: If there is a "rape crisis" on campus, it's not the parents of daughters we need to discipline; it's the parents of rapists and the bro-wingmen who do nothing to stop them.

Re: “What we talk about when we talk about 'rape culture'

I know I am late to this thread, but I am grossed out by some of the victim blaming comments here. First, I am very sorry this happened. I'm also sad that we can't even have an article, CLEARLY addressed to decent guys, without turning it back on the women who find themselves in these situations. Can we as a society not sit for more than two seconds on the ugly reality of rape without totally pushing the conversation onto the woman for being at fault or for not being properly responsible (which is an entirely different conversation, one that I too am weary of as Kim mentioned)? This article, again, was directed towards the good guys out there. If that framing makes you squirm, maybe you should question whether or not you are even in that camp.

Re: “Fifty years after the Voting Rights Act, a daughter of the Old South imagines modern America through the eyes of someone her family once owned

This is a nice musing. I would quibble with a few things but one I think important thing.

The two women were born in the twilight days of slavery and died on the eve of the civil rights movement, within a few months of each other, when both were 96 years old.

No, they died on the eve of at least the second if not third round of the civil rights movement. Reconstruction -- 1865 to approx. 1871-ish -- was most certainly the first civil rights movement. Voting, economic, education, political rights and participation were not only the law at the Federal level, but here in Tennessee at the state level as well. The failure of the first civil rights was through violent vigilantes, social/economic "challenges," and legal structures that eventually overturned civil rights laws and instituted Jim Crow segregation.

It is 150 years since that time and it is high time for us, particularly white Americans and Southern white Americans, to own up to what happened after the end of slavery and in many ways continues to this day.

Re: “In which I address every bad argument I've heard against booking more women at music festivals

So do you think that bands with women booked at festivals should be represented proportionately to the acts in the scene with women? Or are you encouraging an "affirmative-action" style of booking that promotes more acts with women to push them forward? In my mind, the second results in a poor impact on making a change in gender neutrality in the scene. My band is a rock band, not a "female-fronted" band. I despise that "female-fronted" is becoming a genre of sorts. Note Icon for Hire's latest song "Now You Know". Maybe you should ask us how WE feel about.
