Re: “Slap in the face

When a 16 year old student commits suicide rather than deal with the ordeal of a trial and the publicity of her sexual assault by a teacher, can we open our eyes to who gets blamed and shamed? As my 94 year old Grandma Polly said, " It's always the woman's fault."

Re: “Shut it down

What is the incidence of sexual assault, injuries, and mortality in the community based services for people who experience developmentall disabilities, and specifically for those who are court ordered due to risk to harm themselves orothers?

Re: “Slap in the face

As a rape survivor in Missoula and as a victim in the late 90s both quietly ignored and defamed by the University AND the DAs office - siting my egregious reputation as being "loose" as a reason to not press charges -- what should truly be recognized is that all the victims deserve an apology. What I endured was awful -- but was more awful is the powers that be basically ignored it and turned it into being my fault. All because they didn't want any bad press.

Re: “Slap in the face

This is an excellent response to what the author here correctly calls a slap in the face to the victims of the rape culture. We don't need clever visual retorts that seek to uphold the violent, denial ridden status quo. We don't need weak "think positive ignore the negative" analysis. What we need is a commitment to truth and justice through compassionate thinking and action.

Re: “Daines doesn't listen

Montanans have reached out to Senator Daines repeatedly and asked him to take concrete actions on climate change. Not only has he chosen not to act, but he actually voted to deny the reality of significant human-caused climate change on the Senate floor. Daines should be thoroughly ashamed of his position.

Re: “Daines doesn't listen

What exactly should they have listened to? There's a video of you idiots going in, sitting on floor and throwing a tantrum!
