My whole life I have always been different. I was never interested in the opposite sex. I was the very fist girl from my school to take a girl to prom. I had to get lots of permission for them to even allow me to do so. Everyone around me has been supportive for me being out. I could not be happier to be able to be who I am and not hide from being with who I love. Living in Alabama, it is hard to be lesbian. I work as a certified nursing assistant and I have to hide who I am, because most are against it. I have been out since I was 14, I am now 22. I could not be more happier with myself, than I am being out to all my friends and family.

April 3, 2018

by Susan Dutca

A professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz believed she was "unstalkable" up until a student of hers began sending messages that were at first flirtatious and ultimately turned to threats of rape and murder. Much of the #MeToo conversation in higher education revolves around educators who "harass" or "target" students; but some educators themselves actually become vulnerable to harassment by their own students and remain silent out of a sense of guilt, embarrassment, and often the fear of losing their jobs.
