dolcegabbana:

The Dolce&Gabbana Women Summer 2015 collection is inspired by the heritage of the Spanish culture on Sicily’s history.

The Sacred Heart is the main symbol of the collection and it is found embroidered or printed on most of the pieces.

The choice of the carnation was made not only because it is a flower that recalls the Spanish tradition, but also as an homage to Mr. Dolce’s mum, as it was her favorite flower.


Mr. Dolce and Mr. Gabbana’s challenge was to convey the Spanish influence in a non-conventional and literal way. They achieved this thru the use of very simple shapes matched with very rich details and embroideries. The result is a collection full of joy, love and sexiness.

I can not express how truly amazing yesterday was. When organizing this rally we never guessed that it would be as successful as it was. Our biggest fear was that when we opened up the mic to people, no one would speak. But instead, an unbelievable amount of students, staff and alumni came forward with their own stories. We heard over and over again yesterday “this is the first time i’m telling anyone this,” even “this is the first time i’m admitting to myself I was assaulted.” To me, the most important thing that came out of yesterday is that we have started a discussion. People who had been so scared about speaking of their experiences, were saying them into a microphone in front of around 300 strangers, and news stations. Yesterday, many learned that they were not alone. And that what happened to them was not their fault. Please don’t let what happened yesterday stop there. Engage with administration about policy change. Discuss ways to change our campus climate surrounding sexual assault and harassment. And know, that we can change the normalization of these crimes. 
End the Silence, End the Shame

Ancient Egyptian Woman with 70 Hair Extensions Discovered


  More than 3,300 years ago, in a newly built city in Egypt, a woman with an incredibly elaborate hairstyle of lengthy hair extensions was laid to rest.
  
  She was not mummified, her body simply being wrapped in a mat. When archaeologists uncovered her remains they found she wore “a very complex coiffure with approximately 70 extensions fastened in different layers and heights on the head,” writes Jolanda Bos, an archaeologist working on the Amarna Project, in an article recently published in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology.
  
  Researchers don’t know her name, age or occupation, but she is one of hundreds of people, including many others whose hairstyles are still intact, who were buried in a cemetery near an ancient city now called Amarna.

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.

Also fucking bullshit that a goddamn police officer doesn’t know what the legal definition of rape is. It literally takes 0.31 seconds to look up the Department of Justice’s legal federal definition on Google.

The new definition of rape is: “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”   The definition is used by the FBI to collect information from local law enforcement agencies about reported rapes.”

Nothing about inviting someone into your house/apartment/dorm. Nothing.

Just the mere fact that sexual penetration happened without consent.

But what is consent, officer?

The ability of the victim to give consent must be determined in accordance with state statute.

So what’s the state statute for Columbia University in New York? Again, it took less than 5 seconds to type that into Google and then pick the proper article section.

Where the offense charged is rape in the third degree as defined in subdivision three of section 130.25, or criminal sexual act in the third degree as defined in subdivision three of section 130.40, in addition to forcible compulsion, circumstances under which, at the time of the act of intercourse, oral sexual conduct or anal sexual conduct, the victim clearly expressed that he or she did not consent to engage in such act, and a reasonable person in the actor’s situation would have understood such person’s words and acts as an expression of lack of consent to such act under all the circumstances.

That is a “no means no" clause right there.

That doesn’t say “no doesn’t apply if you invited them into your residence”.

It says if she said no, and whoever decided to rape her anyways, THAT IS CONSIDERED RAPE - THERE IS LITERALLY NO DOUBT TO BE CAST.

[Said the non-law student toward the law enforcement officer who doesn’t even know how to do his job - and isn’t that a terrifying thought.]
