STARTER MEMES // 'MOCKINGJAY' EDITION

  • “You love me. Real or not real?"

  • "That's what you and I do, protect each other.”

  • "Maybe some pants?"

  • “I must have loved you a lot.”

  • You like to sleep with the windows open. You never take sugar in your tea. And you always double-knot your shoelaces.”

  • “Some walks you have to take alone.”

  • "The problem is, I can't tell what's real anymore, and what's made up.”

  • "No one should ever underestimate the harm that fingernails can do. Especially if the target is unprepared.”

  • “I drag myself out of nightmares each morning and find there's no relief in waking.”

  • “I think... you still have no idea. The effect you can have.”

  • “Closing my eyes doesn't help."

  • “Let me go!”

  • "Go away! There's nothing left for you here!"

  • “They'll either want to kill you, kiss you, or be you.”

  • “I knew you'd kiss me."

  • "I'm in pain. That's the only way I get your attention.”

  • "Well, you're a piece of work, aren't you?”

  • “If I could grow wings, I could fly. Only people can't grow wings."

  • "So when did I become so special?"

  • "I thought we had an agreement not to lie to each other.”

  • “Is that why you hate me?"

  • "Please feel free to take this personally.”

  • "I can't do this anymore."

  • "We're very familiar with each other's screams.”

  • “You're punishing him over and over for things that are out of his control."

  • "She loves you, you know."

  • “You're still angry.”

  • "I will stand by what I said. Do you want me to lie about it?”

  • “Don't let him take you from me.”

  • “While I was waiting... I ate your lunch.”

  • “I'm not their slave."

  • “You're punishing him over and over for things that are out of his control.”

  • “No one knows what to do with you, girlie.”

Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits schoolSeptember 2, 2014
While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.
“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”
Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.
So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.
