College Students Required To Offer Written Sexual Consent
College code requires students to sign and submit waivers before engaging in any sexual contact, or else risk being disciplined for sexual misconduct.
It was your typical college romance. John and Jane met at the beginning of their freshmen year at Justinuther University, and over the next few weeks, began to know each other a little better.
By the following semester, after attending a campus party, the two decided to take their relationship to the next level.
Jane invited John over to her dorm room, where she made the first move and asked him if he wanted to sleep with her. John complied, and the two had sex.
Despite both of them drinking at the party earlier that evening, both were sober enough to offer each other their consent and use protection.
The next morning, neither of them were ashamed of what they had done, and both were willing to do it again in the near future.

Movie Review: “Big Hero 6” Racist, Sexist
Disney's newest animated feature appears to be progressively multiracial, but pushes the same old regressive bigotry.
The Walt Disney Company has been the most notorious propagator of racism, sexism, and every other "-ism" within Hollywood, and the fact that it markets its movies to children and "families" (dog whistle for "patriarchal white supremacists") make them all the more problematic.
Ever since it was founded by that raging anti-Semite, Walt Disney, the company has been brainwashing children with toxic ideals such as white supremacy, patriarchy, heteronormativity, and cis-sexism, with its movies expressing bigotry both explicitly (Song of the South) and inexplicitly (Frozen's white-washed cast—seriously, being set in a predominantly white country and time period is no excuse for not having a single black character!)
However, the company has recently bee

Haunted House Scares Guests With Ebola, ISIS
This haunted house trades the ghosts, zombies, and ghouls for media boogeymen such as Ebola, global warming, and the Koch Brothers.
Tim Russet Potato
Every Halloween, the abandoned house at the end of Main Street has been used by the local theater group for their annual haunted house.
However, this year, instead of being haunted by imaginary boogeymen like ghosts, ghouls, and goblins, the house is hosting imaginary media boogeymen such as ISIS, Ebola, and the Koch Brothers.
The decision to update the house’s haunts was made in light of recent fear-mongering within the mainstream media, which proved to be harsh competition for traditional scares, the trope’s leader, Dr. Rector, claimed.
“When you have cable news channels pumping the public with fear 24/7 over Ebola and ISIS, suddenly classic horror monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein no longer scare people,” Rector said.
But rather than be

Paul Krugman Admits Being Poe, Quits Job
NYT columnist says he’s not a real economist, but he plays one in the newspaper.
Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman has stepped down from his 15-year position writing for the New York Times, but not without revealing his biggest secret: he’s not really an economist.
Krugman, who coined the term “very serious people” to mock pundits who are considered respectable despite holding mistaken beliefs, penned his final column last week in which he confessed to being one of those “very serious people,” revealing that his position as an economist was merely a ruse,
In reality, he never received a Nobel Peace Prize in economics. He never taught economics at Princeton. He never even studied economics in college.
Instead, he had originally graduated Clown College with the intention of breaking out into the entertainment business, but felt that his com
The history of Islam jihad and islamphobiaAh Islam, along with its sister religions Judaism and Christianity is one of the most hated out there and if your browsing on DA its no exception, if you type in Islam in the search button or see a comment section conversation about it you'll either see the art praising it or bashing it harder than most conservatives bash Obama, and the comment section will look probably look worse than that of your average YouTube video, and if your like me you'll be scratching your head wondering what the hell is going on while people call each other islamphobic or jihadist, well we can look to history for our answers, but first we need to go over some background informationThe history of Islam jihad and islamphobia1 month ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Why do you?"
"A fair answer.I fight to protect what I love. I believe that so do you."
"We fought each other ,yet our goal is similar. So I ask, why do we fight?"
"We fought because you were a threat to us, and in return we threatened you. Simple, really.Stupidly so."
"Tell me, was it worth it?"
"How do you mean?"
"Fighting to protect what is dear to you? Don't get me wrong, I mean if there was a different way,less violent, would you still do it? the same things you did?"
"Hmm...In a better world? No I would not. Problem is we don't live in a better world."
"Tell me, did you fight for your god?"
"...In a sense. Yes,I suppose I did in a way. Did you?"
"Indeed. Did your god not preach for peace,kindness and love of the other?"
"Didn't yours preach the same?"
God's dead in this town. It is said that love and compassion are necessities. Like mortar within wall of brick. That's why this town is crumbling. I walk with my hood up, eyes down, pride low.

I still have those scars from the south; on my back and on my stomach the memories lie. Designs of agony etched into my skin that feel so a part of me now It's almost overwhelming.
"You're safe here", I hear them all say it and I wish it was true. But I laugh too loud and people frown.
I cross this thresh hold and hold my breath, and when they look at me I'm not sure if I want to cry or laugh or scream but the emotion builds up in me and I don't allow it out, the pain of avoiding pain.
God's forsaken me, I think. Or rather... God's dead in this town.

Doch jedes mal wurde mir danach übel und ich musste mich übergeben. Ich orderte immer die Produkte die mir am ehesten zusagten, aber meistens habe ich beim Verlassen der Filiale nur die Produkte in der Tüte die auch die mehrzahl der Kunden bestellten, das sei so fairer sagten sie.
Es endete immer gleich, mit meinem Kopf über der Kloschüssel.
Ich redete mit vielen Leuten darüber, mit meinen Freunden, meiner Familie und öfter auch Fremden.
Manche sagten mir sie würden nichtmehr hingehen, die handhabe die ich nun auch für mich wählte. Einige das ihnen auch immer schlecht werden würde trotzdem gingen sie weiterhin hin, man müsste ja schließlich essen sagten sie.
Ich sage nun immer das ich denke das alle Menüs dort verdorben seien.

Trinity Point [57/100]Tristan scribbled lies, truths and uncertainties onto the tattered slips of parchment that held loosely to the binding of the notebook. He muttered any and all words that emerged from the depths of his work. Patience is but a moniker for insanity, especially when there's writing involved. Tristan called this the "Inception Process", a name he had coined for the part of writing that involves the most juggling and puzzle-making; the part of actually getting it done. Everyone knows that everyone else has a different way of accomplishing insurmountable tasks but really there are only two ways - you either get it done or you don't. It's an ultimatum that presses its blade against Tristan's temple. A bead of sweat drops. Too much too prove. Tristan can't finish it and now everyone will only see a failure at life. He shivers.Trinity Point [57/100]1 month ago in Short Stories More Like This
