The editor of a high school newspaper here recently wrote a cover story on rape culture in the school. It was excellently written. So much so, that other teachers presented it in class as a testament to superior grammar abilities. The author is one of the school’s top students. She has a full-ride academic scholarship to a good east coast school. You can view the story here.
Well now, the principal has enacted a new policy that any feature story for the school paper must be approved by him. He met the author’s adviser and said that if it were up to him, the story would not have been published.
And now EVERYONE in the school — one of the largest in the state — is very pissed off. Our city newspaper got word of it, and we’re trying to spread the word. The author of the story is coming in to our office tomorrow to give our editor an interview, and I’m really hoping we turn out a good story about it. She’s already written and posted a letter to the principal that everyone is sharing. Check it out here.
I’d love to see this get picked up by more media. Even if it’s just statewide.
A student-formed petition has now been started. And kids have been writing numerous letters to the principal that they’ve shared through Twitter.
Guys, this is my high school. The people involved in this story and petition are my real-life friends. I used to write and edit for this paper. Please spread the word!
Wrist, Hand & Finger Stretching Routine. For those tired artsy hands! When it already hurts to draw (or write), we should stop for a moment and then stretch + rest our hands.
I’m gonna take a break and do this for a moment.
Very good for artists to do regularly. Doing these exercises regularly helps prevent long term issues like arthritis and carpal tunnel.
PEOPLE DO THIS, DONT BE LIKE ME DONT FUCK UP YOUR HAND DONT DO IT. make sure you have support for your entire arm when you writing/drawing.
