no, i don't like censorship

UPDATE FROM 11/15/2009: here

and i'm not a prude and i have a good sense of humor but NONE of what i am reading about this so called 'satirical' column appeared to be very funny to me

however, i have no idea how someone can say it was harassment. i don't think it is at all. i think it's hurtful and stupid and evil. i think whoever wrote it is an ass. it's NOT funny when women are portrayed as 'hood rats', whores and full of diseases. i think the staff of the paper should have declined to publish the column because it was in bad taste. to me that's not the same as censorship. that's EDITORIAL DECISION

first we have all that shite at the central connecticut state paper (you know how it's fun to rape women then the comic where a young latina was pissed upon. yeah, real funny)

i get frightened sometime. i thought we were raising our children these days to RESPECT WOMEN.

i guess i thought wrong

fuck that. it's not funny to rape women. it's not funny to tie women up put them in a closet and piss on them. it's not funny to write a column about fucking every skanky woman in sight and brag about it to your friends and humiliate the women. it's NOT FUNNY

but no one at fairfield university seems to care about that. what i'm getting out of this story is they are ONLY worried about the paper's funding

it's an ap article so i can't print any part of it. you sure can click on the link below and read it for yourselves

Conn. student newspaper faces harassment claims

ah, never mind. i found a NON AP article!

Fairfield U. newspaper faces discipline over column’s ‘harassment’
By Linda Conner Lambeck / Connecticut Post, Bridgeport (MCT)

FAIRFIELD -- Three months after The Fairfield Mirror newspaper ran a column that some Fairfield University students found highly offensive, the independent student publication faces harassment charges before the school’s Student Conduct Board.

It’s the first time the campus harassment policy has been directed at a student organization rather than an individual, said Fairfield U. Dean of Students Thomas Pellegrino. Pellegrino also told the Mirror staff that they violated the ethical and procedural guidelines of the newspaper’s funding agreement, making it "null and void."

However, the lights are still on in the student newspaper’s Campus Center office and bills are still being paid. Pellegrino insists his intention is not to take control of the paper or subject it to pre-publication censorship. He was unwilling, however, to say what penalty The Mirror could face at the hands of the conduct board or if he is satisfied with revised policy standards recommended to him Monday by student editors of the paper.................

i didn't watch oprah, nor am i going to

i don't LIKE oprah at all. but that's neither here nor there. i don't know if i would be able to handle actually hearing charla nash tell her story. so i didn't watch and no, i didn't click any links to see any pictures either (and i won't). i just think ms nash is one hell of a brave and courageous woman.

i just can't imagine. i just can't imagine

oh and p.s. WILD ANIMALS SHOULD NOT BE LIVING IN YOUR BATHTUB, IN YOUR LIVING ROOM, OR IN YOUR BACK YARD. i've felt this way all along. it's not fair to the animal AND they are indeed WILD no matter how tame you think they are.

Chimp Victim Speaks To Oprah

The Stamford woman injured in a chimpanzee attack showed her face on national television today, speaking with Oprah Winfrey in her first interview since the attack.

Charla Nash, 56, lost both hands, her vision, nose, lips and eyelids in the attack. Much of her scalp is also missing, a piece of her leg was grafted to create a nose, and she has a hole in her face through which she can eat and drink from a straw. Doctors were able to reattach one of her thumbs.

She wears a hat with a veil hanging from it that covers her face to avoid scaring people, she told Winfrey.

Tabloids have been vying for a picture of her, and a guard stands posted outside Nash's room at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio to protect her from photographs, Winfrey said. Winfrey said Nash decided to reveal her face on the show because she wanted to do it in her own terms. And in the interview with Winfrey, which was taped Tuesday, Nash said she was not concerned with how people would see her.................

a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor

a women pleads GUILTY to BEATING HER DAUGHTERS (for a lesser charge of course). the abuse, goddess knows, was going on for how long? perhaps since they were in elementary school? it appears they are in high school now (or at least 2 of them are) because the article mentions a conard resource officer.

so, the woman, sandra cedeno, gets a REDUCED SENTENCE (meaning NO jail time). i have no idea how long her kids were taken away for (IF AT ALL), but obviously the kids were placed BACK IN THE HOME.

what happens then you wonder (well i know you're NOT wondering. i KNOW YOU KNOW what happens next)

good ol' sandra starts (allegedly, although this article said she again admitted to it. BUT she's not been proven guilty so i have to say allegedly) BEATING THE GIRLS AGAIN WITH A METAL BROOM HANDLE. she must have (allegedly) beaten them hard because the handle when found by the police was all bent up.

i wonder if the kids have been taken away (if good ol' sandra is out on bail)? if yes, how long is it going to be before our good ol' dcf GIVES THEM BACK TO THE ABUSER (she is an abuser as she has pled guilty at least once before)

West Hartford Woman Charged Again With Assaulting Daughters
The Hartford Courant

WEST HARTFORD - A local woman on probation for assaulting her daughters has been arrested again for assaulting the girls, police said.

Sandra Cedeno, 31, of South Quaker Lane, is charged with two counts of second-degree assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor for allegedly beating her daughters with a metal broom handle. She was arrested Nov. 2 and posted $5,000 bail.

According to the warrant for her arrest, the social worker at Conard High School contacted the state Department of Children and Families to report the girls were being abused by their mother. A DCF investigator interviewed the girls, who said their mother had struck them in the head, back and arms with the metal broom handle for violating house rules.

One daughter was struck, she told the investigator, because she took food to her bedroom. The other was struck because her mother found that she had chewing gum, which could damage her braces.

After the DCF official substantiated the abuse, Conard's social worker contacted Officer Arthur Yepes, who is the school resource officer at Conard. Yepes wrote in the application for an arrest warrant that he could see bruises on each girl. One had bruises on her left shoulder, face and left hand. The other had bruises on her right arm and hand.
