If EKU puts don't the booze, weed and prescribed meds will they not have to take back as much of the night?

Thank you so much, WTVQ, for shining a spotlight on Take Back the Night! As I said at the event, the thing you do doesn't have to be something huge for it to make a difference. You don't particularly have to stop a rape or save someone's life to change it. If someone makes a joke that upsets you, that you know upsets someone else, or that simply IS NOT FUNNY, you don't have to laugh. We are taught our entire lives to be polite and to laugh when boys try to be funny. Guess what? You don't have to. You don't have to be polite to someone who is being a jerk. They gave up that right. And maybe the person doesn't mean to be mean or rude or hurtful. So inform them. Tell them that their "joke" has upset someone. Let them know that they have hurt someone. If they are someone you should keep in your life, they will care and listen. Rape culture will die when people realize that small deeds and jokes matter.
