Guys are guys. You don't need game to hook up with a guy. You could say, "peas and carrots" and they're down.

I have a friend. Something similar happened to her, and she told the school. And they made her feel like shit. They told her she was a slut, basically, that she was crazy. No, you're not going to go to them. You told me, and I believe you. It was one night. Okay? One shitty night. Don't let it ruin the rest of your life.
===
Did you ever say "no"?
-Yes.
You just told me you said, "wait," but did you ever use the word "no"?
-Yes.
Are you sure that you said "no" and that he heard you?
===
I didn't know that I was going to be the one on trial. "How many people have you had sex with? Were you flirting? Did you have an orgasm?" An orgasm? Oh, yeah, it was really enjoyable. Especially the part where I woke up bleeding, not knowing what happened…

Do you know how they got off? I mean, there's a video proof.
-Yeah, but you couldn't really see their faces. They said she was a freak, into gang bangs. It became a classic he said/she said situation. Well, that's like Daisy, remember freshman year? Yeah, she got raped by her ex-boyfriend. He was on the basketball team. ... And he beat her, too. Like, bad. And you know what the school did? They put him on probation for probably like a week. I don't even think he missed any of his games. He graduates right on time. Nothing happened. It was just a little blip in the time line.
===

===
Look, I'd just appreciate your help.
-Like you want a tip from the poor girl who couldn't prove her rape? Okay. For every one of me, detective, I'm guessing there are a few who never even tried -- rightfully. Why don't you start there?

So, you know that nail polish, it changes color if there's a date rape drug in it? You put it on, you swirl it around,
-it'll change colors?
--Oh yeah, I've heard that.
Right? We totally need that on campus.
-I love that. We should urge the school to provide it for incoming freshman.
---Or guys could just stop drugging and raping girls so we don't need color-changing nail polish.
That would be nice, but until that day comes, I think we need to be prepared.
---What if we're not prepared? What if we have a drink? What if we wear high heels and we didn't learn taekwondo? What if we forgot our rape whistle at home and we didn't paint our nails with color-changing nail polish that tells you if your drink is drugged? Then what? We just get raped? How about instead of that really useful fashion advice, the administration starts teaching guys that they can't stick their dicks wherever they want?

There are other ways to create change.
-Like what? Writing letters to congress?
Sure. Whatever it takes short of murdering someone. But that's just me.
-Yeah, I think it is just you.
You ever heard the saying, "an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind?"
-The world's already blind.
===
I couldn't let him get away with it.
-It's not your responsibility.
Whose responsibility is it, then? The cops? The school? They are not protecting us…
===
Well, I didn't know any of the victims personally, but from what I hear, they didn't really sound like stand-up guys.
-Good guys, bad guys, short, tall-- you break the law, there's going to be consequences.
I guess it depends on which law you break.

Why art? One of my earliest memories, I was painting a sunflower with my watercolors and somewhere in my little-kid brain I knew that this perfect sunflower would shrivel up and die one day. But I had the power to preserve it, to immortalize the beauty around me... to save it from the brutality of life. Leonardo Da Vinci said, "Every painter should begin with a wash of black on their canvas, because everything in nature is dark except for where it's exposed by light." Perhaps we are conditioned to begin on a white canvas. But maybe what we need right now is to see the water turning murky, to see the petals falling. Maybe it's through art that we come face to face with our own darkness and that's the only way we can change. Mfa class of 2016, i urge you... Aim not to preserve the beauty, but to expose the truth. Dare to make the world uncomfortable with your honesty no matter what the consequence is, because the world will be better for it.You will be better for it.

Clint’s daughter played a victim turned vigilante who used extreme measures to target sexual assailants in her college where she was a "Master of Fine Arts" student. A decent enough story with compelling female-centric narratives that we are failing to address and protect young college teens, many first time away from home, from brutal campus rapists. For a short but good graduation speech on "Why Art," see "Quotes."

It is a sad and tough topic. Francesca Eastwood gave a breakout performance. That movie is worth to watching. It is so sad to see all the rapist got away with women's innocence. People never take innocent women seriously. Women always suffering more than men. All colleges and universities never cared on their female students. Always focus on men and eager them to success with their future more than women in the campus.
