sewanee wc [the wick]

We are 12 undergraduate students trying to make a difference.
We attend a small liberal arts college in Sewanee, TN.
We work and live in the Women’s Center.
We are feminists.
We have things to say. We have stories and experiences to share. We think they’re pretty important and at the very least, entertaining. Someone said we should start a blog.
We said- why not?
This is us, in the simple (but often not so simple) day-to-day.

Should Tampons Be Free?

This Is What Happened When I Proposed To My Boyfriend

When you are an affluent-seeming white man and you ask for things that don’t belong to you, sometimes you’re not really asking. It’s sort like Bill Clinton asking Monica Lewinsky to have sex with him. There’s a context behind the asking.

When you ask a serviceperson for something that doesn’t belong to you, there is often a subtext of, “If I complain to your manager, you know your manager is going to listen to me. Just look at me, and look at you.”

And sometimes, of course, this is not the case at all, and you’re just being a garden-variety annoying customer. Or a bully.

If you seem to be “getting everything you want,” you should probably examine whether you’re getting it at someone’s expense, or whether you’re just constantly, in small ways, making the world worse.


This  (clink link) is the article in question. It says that the only way you can know is to ASK HER, and was written in response to the bullshit "10 Signs Of How ‘Down To F**k’ A Girl Is…Just From What She’s Wearing."
I think that C’s comment is pathetic and a little scary…I’m not sure what he’s trying to get across, other than he doesn’t want to get rejected by asking for consent, and is going to assume it’s implied?
