“Every woman in my life has had to ask herself the question: What does consent mean to me?” 

My friend Sophie told me this when I first verbalized feelings about my experiences with sexual misconduct. 

I was confronted with the enduring effects of these experiences at the beginning of this semester, so I started developing the vocabulary I needed to explain what happened and how it impacted me. The effects of sexual harassment and sexual assault manifest differently for different people, and my reaction has always come in the form of compartmentalization and avoidance.

The University of Michigan had a total enrollment of 48,090 students in fall 2019, but apart from people flooding Ingalls Mall during Festifall or joining the crowd walking toward the Big House on game day, there has seldom been a moment I’ve felt the weight of how huge the University actually is. People are constantly bustling through the Diag, earbuds in, laughing with friends or climbing up the steps to Hatcher.

I remember my early childhood as the stack of picture books my parents read to my brother and me each night before we went to bed. My consistent reading habits were rooted in these bedtime stories and grew throughout my primary school experience. I would take bi-weekly library trips with my mom that would result in her cutting the stack of eight novels I brought up to checkout to four.

It’s officially June, which means two things: The Peony Garden in Nichols Arboretum is due to bloom any day, and it’s time to celebrate Pride. LGBTQ+ Pride month has gone through many evolutions since its origins in New York in 1970, where the first Pride was held to commemorate a year since the Stonewall riots.

I have walked past the “Bookstore Mural” hundreds of times during my two years living in Ann Arbor. Whenever my errands drag me across the Diag, my heels instinctively turn the corner and put me onto the perpetually busy street of East Liberty. I find myself momentarily distracted from whatever music I have blaring through my earphones, and I glance up to see it, exactly where it has been since 1984.

Quote from article

I was sitting with my two best friends in a dorm room, laughing after an afternoon of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, when one of us received the first text from a friend. “There’s an active shooter in Mason Hall,” he said to me. “That’s not a funny joke to make,” I responded, hoping he was kidding but knowing he wasn’t from the serious look on his face. This initial message, followed by many more, sent us into a frenzy of checking all our group chats, texting and calling everyone we knew and telling them to stay away from the Diag, stay indoors and stay safe.
