Tempe12 and an attempt at activism

Ok so I've just come up with my new number 1 rule of activism:

NEVER DRINK AND TRY TO DO ACTIVISM WORK...you will fail miserably...

That's all I wanna say about last night and my attempt at making the head guy of Tempe 12 calendar aware that his work objectifies women.

You win some, and you lose some...

Random comment on Tempe 12. The day before they were on campus I saw the bus going down monroe. I had no idea what tempe 12 was except that their bus was covered in women in little swimsuits. anyway I was outraged and disturbed by this bus. But there were these two students walking toward me that were even more disturbed by it. Asking me "did you see that" "what the hell". They were both visibly upset at the objectification and sexualization of the women. Then I read about what tempe 12 was in the paper and visited their website which I wouldn't suggest doing. I just couldn't believe it especially how tempe "plays up" the gpa of the women. anyway I just had to share my story .. :)
