The rules of consent

September 14, 2014 Executive Editor 0

I wonder if there will ever be a day when I walk out of my apartment and someone doesn’t feel the need to comment on my body. Earlier this week I needed to go out to get some flu medicine for myself. As I was walking to the store, every group of men I walked past made a comment on my body. These comments made me feel overwhelmed and unsafe because there was nothing I could do to escape the situation. All I could do was smile or ignore so they wouldn’t engage me. Why do these men give out their opinion when it was unasked for?

Gun control and crime on campus

August 25, 2014 Executive Editor 5

Crime on VCU’s campus has become a regular occurrence, even with the highest number of campus police officers in Virginia. The victims of crimes are usually women or smaller men, but mostly women. Whenever the media and academia calls for a national conversation about guns, it is usually a discussion between the left and far left. What the media never tells you about is their security team inside the building is armed with guns. How ironic it is that the media isn’t operating in a gun free zone.
