1) The ppl who have criticized me for using "guys" have all been from California (Bay Area even, I think); from what i hear, it's a pretty gendered word there? Here in the Pacific Northwest, where i'm from, it's totally nongendered, but i think sometimes ppl forget that we don't all speak the exact same English. Anyway, when someone's intent is clear, criticizing them over using "guys" instead of something else is shitty, i agree. Don't tell people that their dialect is dumb and yours is better, that's colonialism.

2) Calling someone a cunt is really strong offensive language but gender-wise it's akin to calling them a dick? I could totally see someone getting offended by you using the word, and that's their right, but if they're not a part of the conversation they maybe shouldn't make a big deal about it, that's kinda a shitty thing to do.

3) Feminists who tell other ppl to call themselves feminists are pushing identity labels on others and feel free to tell them to fuck off. If you are a feminist who thinks other people should also call themselves feminists, i urge you to maybe take a hard look at what that word is really doing and why you seem so personally invested in its use.

4) You should not side with rape victims. You should not side with rapists. The only people who should be involved in that conversation are the people directly involved, the people they turn to for support, and the law. It's really not any of our business.

5) In terms of speaking out, taking action—my approach is to avoid politicking like the plague. It's not worth it trying to engage with dogma. Form communities, have discussions with people who understand where you're coming from.

Conclusion : Some capital-F Feminists do shitty things and are oppressive and really aren't helping anyone but themselves. It seems like you've been attacked in the past, and I can see why you would be bitter. This doesn't mean rape culture, gender norms, racism, etc aren't real or problematic, and that we shouldn't be working to create safer communities, but i think we need to approach the problem from a less prescriptive angle. Trust and communication gets you a lot farther than telling people what to do.

Sure let's have some challenging discourse, that's what academia is about. Except when "challenging discourse" means having to listen to someone explain to you that women are hysterical for wanting to feel as safe as men do in their daily lives.

How dare women want to be able to walk down a street without harassment and fear. We should be sure to adopt quasi-liberal criticism of "safe spaces" because they don't challenge survivors and women generally to think about how hard it must be for men.

When someone called you a "dick" have you ever felt, truly felt, that you were about to get raped, beaten, or assaulted? Ever really felt weak hopeless or scared?

No. You might have felt a semblance of shame, or fear of shaming which you might have mistook as real fear.

Capital F, I don't know who you think is saying women are hysterical and so on. Someone can challenge your opinion, or the idea of safe spaces, or all the tenets of capital F Feminism without being threatening, insensitive, or misogynist. Maybe that's the problem with what this article complains about: if you shelter yourself, then any challenge seems like an assault.

I'm so happy to see this here. I'm all for the idea and practice of safe spaces, but there is a point where it goes too far. Hell, a direct quote from that article reads, "I was feeling bombarded by a lot of viewpoints that really go against my dearly and closely held beliefs". I mean, that's absolutely ridiculous. You don't go to college to be in a hugbox, you go to college to learn, and what you learn you might not agree with, that's just the world. If your reaction to a talk you dislike on campus is to regress in a room with "cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies," you've got some shit to figure out. College is for adults, not children.

Society has a problem with letting people grow up--it's understandable, because that involves getting hurt, and nobody likes to see other people get hurt--but it comes at the cost of creating a whole generation of adults sheltered and out-of-touch with reality. We need to ditch the nanny society and toughen up. Can you imagine how much better the world would be if every teenager was sent away from home at 18 and forced to do manual labor for a year?

Is anyone else—

      Scared of sex?

I get really uncomfortable when people talk about sex or hookups. I'm not against people having sex and I don't think there's something sacred about it or whatever, but the idea just terrifies me.

I'm not sure if it's because I'm inexperienced and have no idea what would be or wouldn't be sexy, if it's because I'm insecure about my body, or if it's because I'm scared of physical contact. I'm not very attractive and I'm on the verge of overweight, so that probably contributes. I get stressed when people get in my personal space bubble (I like hugs but only when I'm ready for them) and I get hyper aware of my every movement/body part when people get too close. I'm not sure where this fear comes from but it's clearly deeply embedded and not going away any time soon without some serious work on my part.

Has anyone else dealt with something like this? I don't think I have something specifically triggering it that I can blame it on, but still. I actually enjoy other people and I wish I could get hugged more but I just get so physically uncomfortable that I can't enjoy physical contact when it does happen.

If it helps at all, I'm a female, 20, and I do go to therapy already (for depression) but I absolutely hate it because expressing emotions and talking about myself is not really my forte.

^I don't think the OP is misusing the word here. I think they just mean it in the sense that it caused something, as in "trigger a chain reaction," or in their case, a specific factor or circumstance that is causing them this problem. To say something is a trigger when in fact it just bothers you is certainly a problem, but I don't think that's what the OP meant.

OP, maybe you could talk about it at therapy and see if your therapist has a solution?
—Anonymous
Posted at a quarter to two in the afternoon on March 23rd, 2015.  link  
Yeah, I don't think they're using it wrong here either. Google says:

1. cause (an event or situation) to happen or exist.
"an allergy can be triggered by stress or overwork"
synonyms: precipitate, prompt, elicit, trigger off, set off, spark (off), touch off, provoke, stir up;
or
2. cause (a device) to function.
synonyms: activate, set off, set going, trip
"thieves triggered the alarm"

So saying "something specifically triggering it" means "something specifically causing it to happen"

As someone with PTSD, anxiety, and phobias, the OP didn't use triggering incorrectly.

Back on topic:
OP, it could be a number of things. While talking about your emotions and self can be challenging, it's a good thing to do and practice. Try bringing it up with your therapist maybe.

ravers of whitman—

      do any of you enjoy going to EDM shows and/or raves/rave like events? i've never been before but i really want to go. seems like the closest place with a scene is seattle. is it worth it to drive that far? do you know of any smaller/underground scenes closer?

I remember there being one in tri-cities last semester, so it's definitely possible to go to something like a rave. But do you really want to go to them? Rave culture is dead, apart from some underground clubs/warehouses in big cities.
—You know rave's gone to shit when there's a dj who wears a mouse helmet and doesn't take drugs. I repeat, DOESN'T TAKE DRUGS.
Posted at a quarter past eleven in the morning on March 23rd, 2015.  link  
You must go to TKE's Earth Party! It will be the biggest rave-like event at Whitman, hands down. I love dance parties/raves/edm shows/etc. Been to quite a few and am going to a couple in the near future (Earth Party, Go Hard Seattle, Paradiso, hopefully more!)

Other than that, probably have to go to Seattle. I am from tri-cities, that show was an anomaly, not a normal event. Depends on your definition of "rave," but a lot of dance music (know as EDM in America) is picking up around the country (we are always behind Europe taste-wise).

Seattle has some great shows, Spokane every so often. Foundation is a great club in Seattle with constant good "raves". Go Hard Seattle is probably what you are looking for, a "rave" on April 25th.

Posted at a quarter past ten in the morning on March 30th, 2015.  link  
By my definition of it, I think rave died when people started facing the dj instead of dancing with each other, and trying to outdo each other with clothes. Then it became another aspect of commercial society, rather than the free love all out craziness that it was. You can still get that feeling, but it's moved on from rave to other things.

The guy above me is right, though. If you're looking for rave/EDM, go to Seattle. Sure it ain't Studio 54 or the hacienda, but it's fun.

      Really like Walla Walla? I feel like many people at Whitman complain about being here without fulling realizing how great of a town Walla Walla is. The people are friendly, it's located in an absolutely beautiful area, and it has a lot to do for a town of its size. Sure, it has its problems (just like any city) but as a whole I feel like its a pretty great place that I could see myself living in someday. Thoughts?

I think they just do that to whitties sometimes. We don't have a great reputation with some Walla Wallans but are sometimes seen as entitled, smartass, birkenstocked pricks. When I decided on whitman, a family friend jokingly told me that when she sees me crossing Isaacs she won't try to run me over. But other than that I think it's a pretty swell town.

Walla Walla's cool, but it has its pros and cons. I don't really like the pretentious touristiness that comes with all the wine (makes everything more expensive, too), but if it wasn't for that this place wouldn't look half as nice as it does. It's rural and has its foundations in agriculture, which means it is laid-back and conservative; personally i've lived around that my whole life but i could see how it would turn some ppl off.

Typically you can go to the HC during doctor's hours and they can test you right then and get you a prescription. However, since it's spring break, there aren't doctor's hours. You can call and ask if the nurse can send out a sample for testing and if you can get a prescription that way, but I'm not 100% sure you can do that. Otherwise you should go to urgent care, which sucks because it's expensive. Good luck, and drink lots of cranberry juice/ take some Azo!

Agreed, don't just drink cranberry juice and lots of water. Make sure that you go get an examination or a pee test at one of the clinics in town. An untreated UTI can sometimes progress into a more serious infection in your kidneys.

It sounds to me like Whitman security has a problem with profiling, but not necessarily the rest of campus.

I stand with Security on this one. It's 2 A.M. and the people on duty are told to call in almost anything they see that seems suspicious. Factor in Thanksgiving break (less students around), the recent break ins, and I think Security was in the right on this one. Plus, if it had been an actual break in and Security let it slide, you'd be jumping down their throats for not doing their job. It's regrettable that it happened to a student of color, but I'm betting most of you would rather be safe than sorry.

I agree that security isn't necessarily at fault, but i think that the administration definitely needs to put more thought into when it is acceptable to ask for documentation. While in this case it (maybe) made sense to check that the student belonged at Whitman, giving security the right to ask anyone, for any reason, to provide proper ID seems a little suspect imo.

I am defiantly not homophobic, but I think it's interesting to note how many people post the names of homosexuals, simply because these people are homosexuals. Of course, they endure more suffering than most, but is it's worth discussing whether that merits being a favorite person.
—im about to get a lot of shit

...I think you just might be being homophobic. Or at least cynical. Everyone can be expected to have a different favorite person. If you don't see the people being posted as being so great, well, that's you, not them. You really can't speak for the other posters.

Additionally, I really didn't notice a strong LGBT trend, but I also don't know that many of the people posted about.

But, keeping up the happy favorite-people trend, Gene Hoffman!

I'm sorry, but how do you know that they posted certain people "simply because they are homosexuals"? That's a completely unfounded statement.

To the first poster brave enough to voice his mind: it is a symptom of the tokenization of people at Whitman. Just one of many reasons why I hate this college.

I didn't know any of those people were gay. Most of them are just genuinely good people. (I say most because I don't know a few of these people)

"The first poster brave enough to voice his mind"--how can you say that?? You don't know that.
I don't see a symptom of tokenization here... I see an epidemic of creating imaginary issues so you can push your own self dissatisfaction with yourself onto the school as a whole and ignore your own issues that you need to deal with. Fucks sake.

This is why I can't stand this site. Somebody tries to post one positive thing-- one! -- and some asshole decides he wants to start a flame war.

This is why we can't have nice things. Every other goddamn thread is already filled with negativity-- put your vitriol there. Let's just have one thread where the guiding principle is "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

I love frat people. They get a lot of shit from Whitties and still they host parties for all the campus to partake in.

ahahaha no. it's not. when someone said something along those lines to me, dignity has pretty much kept me from even going near them again, but I still think of them far too much. It makes no logical sense, but I'm no longer shoving my brokenhearted memories about that person away. I'm using what I learned from the situation (what to do, what not to do, what I loved about them, what I hated) to guide me.
