Lots of people will tell you that abortion should be legal, though they personally are pro-life. Logically, all of those people should be called pro-choice, but some of them will tell you no, they’re pro-life. The pro-choice side thinks that’s a contradiction, that people who identify this way just don’t understand what they’re talking about.
I think the difference here is due to how people are defining their views. Pro-choice people are making a purely legal decision. They’re not talking about their plans if they find themselves in that situation; they’re talking about what laws should look like. It’s a political identification, not a declaration of their personal moral code.
I called to ask for them because Jesus.
For people who can’t directly participate in the Carry that Weight project, whether because of disability, being triggered by the rape mattress, or simply not being a student at college, there are many other ways to protest colleges’ lax attitude toward sexual violence. Shown here is one of them: declare an infestation at your school.
Anybody can participate: parents, alums, people in the community living near these places, anyone who objects to the violence. You can tape it to yourself as a sign while you go about your day and/or post it to your profiles. This was made with a meme generator; google your school, choose a picture, upload it, and make your declaration. If you’re fancy, you could photoshop this idea into a school banner, freshman welcoming leaflet, and campus signs. Enjoy.
Alternatively, the phrase #EducatingRapists might better suit your sense of irony and hypocrisy.
Disability accommodations tend to be seen as special privileges, as political correctness acting to deliberately lower the bar for people who aren’t qualified and thus shouldn’t be present. Superficially, a person who is not able to perform as required is not qualified, and thus should not be hired or admitted. Changing the parameters in order to account for that person’s deficiency, essentially giving that person “an extra hand” which nobody else is permitted, smacks of special treatment.
