You're Really Voting For Kerry??
Regular readers of this space might recall that after the Senate vote authorizing the Iraq war I said that I'd "vote for Hitler before I vote for Kerry." I was angry. It was obvious to me then that Bush and his cronies wouldn't let the UN get in the way of enforcing U.


File Sharing

Peer-to-peer (P2P) applications such as BearShare, Warez, Morpheus, BitTorrent, iMesh and KaZaA make it easy for users to exchange files over the Internet. While these programs are a good way of sharing information, they are not entirely harmless and can cause problems for your personal system as well as the University network.

The alcohol culture: Now is the time to act

Fort Collins, Colorado. Boulder, Colorado. Norman, Oklahoma. Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Do you recognize the pattern?

Four large public universities, each considering stern measures to address the issues associated with high risk alcohol use and fraternity culture now that each school has lost at least one student this semester in what appear to be alcohol-related deaths.


Cheney Lies and Misleads at Debate

Tuesday night's vice presidential debates proved to be a war of words between two candidates desperately vying for the coveted undecided votes and swing states. Edwards waged a debate with articulate, straightforward answers grounded in the facts. Cheney, on the other hand, struggled through the night, his answers wrought with misleading statements and deceptive lies.

Women's studies coordinator reflects on past, supports speak out

This afternoon I went to the Speak Out organized by the Feminist Action League in support of a TNH columnist who had received death threats for an opinion she voiced concerning fraternities as agents of violence against women. I am outraged that a reporter, that anyone, was subjected to such hostility for articulating an opinion-an action that underscores the violence within our society.


Race not the issue in oppression

I would like to respond to an op-ed from the senior Jason Ratliff, in the Oct. 5 TNH, entitled "Williams Leads Feminists in Wrong Direction." First I would like to say that Jason seems to have an honest interest in feminism and an open mind to have taken a feminist class that can be intimidating to many men.

The Definately - Not - Satire Satire Column

Although parking remains a constant issue at UNH, Saturday morning may mark a strange first: Two students are planning to duel to the death over a parking-related dispute that began yesterday morning.

Alexis Scuderi, a commuting student from Newmarket, says she saw the whole thing.


Feminists on the wrong path

Let me get something out of the way before I rant. Rape is very incredibly bad. Death threats are also very bad. I am not supporting or defending anyone who commits or supports them. That being said...

I don't know what scary culture you have all been growing up in, but mine does not promote or condone rape.

Women are not "just fine"

Last Tuesday Christopher Mohan argued that "women are just fine." However, I refuse to be told by a male, oblivious to the oppression women face, that I am "fine." Women are not "fine." If we were, we wouldn't be speaking out.

Yes, women have the same equal rights as men, but just because women can vote, get jobs and go to college, does not mean women are "fine.


Mohan helps prove Williams' point

In his op-ed, "Women are doing fine in today's world," Mr. Mohan gives a myriad of reasons why women do not earn as much as men, including working more overtime, working at more dangerous jobs which yield higher pay and the fact that women enter motherhood, which temporarily or permanently takes them out of the workforce.

We Are All Whitney Williams

I am not going to attack anyone today for their words or their views. Instead, I am going to provide the TNH reading community with a sample of the many words that were shared at the Speak Out this past Tuesday.

For any of you who are unaware of the situation on this campus, I will explain.


Ratliff's comments found offensive

Ms. Whitney Williams' columns in TNH have gotten quite a stir on campus. I am not a feminist fan, but I have a few words in response to "Williams leads feminists in wrong direction" by Mr. Jason Ratliff, which appeared on TNH Oct. 5, 2004.

When Ms. Williams said "our culture is a fraternal one, owned, governed and controlled essentially by white man," I guess as a non-white male foreigner, "our" means America.

Do Take Note

(This column is dedicated to Andrea Dworkin and to all other women who refuse to be silent.)

"I came here today because I don't believe that rape is inevitable or natural. If I did, I would have no reason to be here. If I did, my political practice would be different than it is.
