Working from home in between sessions of icing my lower back on my liking room floor. Because of course my back would give out the week I’m seeing Tommy Wiseau in person and covering Chicago Comic Con (WizCon).
If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do.
