Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014

While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”

Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.

So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.

the thing that really got me in bioshock infinite was the scene when you leave shantytown after the uprising and come back to the main plaza and there are hordes of those rich, white columbians you saw earlier in the game scrambling to escape on little floating airships. and a guy on the airship says, “you need to remove some of your belongings, or we can’t get any more people on board!” and then booker says something about how fitzroy is just as bad as comstock.

and it’s like… really? presumably, the people escaping on this airship are the same people who hung out at the fair at the beginning of the game and took part in the stoning of interracial couples. presumably, their wealth was built on the backs of fink’s slave trade. and now that the people they’ve violently oppressed have guns, they’re trying to escape - and i’m supposed to feel bad for them because they can’t get all their possessions on board? these people have so much stuff that they can’t carry it with them. and i’m supposed to feel bad for them. when i’ve just seen how the people in shantytown live off rotten food and live in lean-tos. okay.
