Is Aggieville Safe? Get Educated, Get Smart. Life in 2010 is a Jungle.

Who can you trust?
When can you relax?
 (Remember, 1 in 10 men
and maybe 1 in 30 women
are high in the sociopathic trait.) 
(or larger HERE ) is a video of
 4 women who attended a K-State event,
(Miss Black and Gold) then went to Buffalo Wild Wings for Dinner.
This vid shows what we encountered as we left dinner and walked to our vehicles.
 Sirens, ambulances, drug deals, vomiting, and the constant harrassment of unknown men.
I admire and frequent many businesses in Aggieville.  It is generally a great collection of folks. Varneys, for example, and some bar owners, and the Aggieville Business Association ae working to promote a safe environment.. BUT There are a few bars/bar owners who do not seem to care about what happens to those they serve. Add that to the sneaky manipulating woves in sheep's clothing, the dark, and alcohol, and you have the perfect mix for trouble.

All I'm saying is, get smart.
Aggieville stories from
K-State Men and Women: HERE and HERE

I swear!
Why Can't we all get along??

Ok, this blog has many stories throughout.
 Brave women have contributed their own experiences
of hurt, trauma, betrayal, and
 healing, friendship, and growth.
Here are links to some of them:

You Think You Know Something Of Love?

You Think You Know Something of Love?

A Vulture's Glance and the State of Your Soul

Are your fruitfully Engaged, spreading splendors of light and Fecundity--a root gathering waters of life--
or NOT; are
the Vultures
trying to clean the decay from the residue of your acts of violence:

 Is there desolation or fruitful movement? Is there a
Vulture's Glance
 for scraps of dead closer up:

After commiting a crime of violence, you have but one way to get rid of this condemned feeling.

The light comes on.

The Fruits of the Mystical Sex Act (with Strangers-Use a condom?)

Holy Moley. Yer kiddin me, i'm old and need to pass quietly away. I need to find a mountain and go die.
The school paper (College Level) has an editorial about since college students might find themselves having sex with strangers they should keep condoms handy.
The story is here: Collegian thursday,  9/16/10

Here is my little reply. (Perhaps they will publish it on tuesday. Perhaps i will be tarred as an extremist? no. no one cares.

Editor: Really?
Thursday’s lead editorial, Hooking Up, in the Collegian states K-Staters need to “start protecting their bodies when they are out in a social setting where they might have a sexual encounter with someone whom they are not familiar” –Holy Moley.
Forget about your heart and soul, forget about your mind and intelligence, forget about your ideals of who you are, what kind of man or woman you intend to be.

Just make sure as you wander about, without any direction or principles, that you cover your genitals with bits of plastics to lower your chances of getting diseased, from "someone with whom you are not familiar”...
Really! BTW, Did you know that 10-15% of condoms are faulty? Did you know, women, that you can pick up a sweet case of Lifetime Genital Warts even if the “unfamiliar” stranger is wearing a condom?
You can know the weight of an action by its fruits. The fruits of the sexual act are enormous. The sex act is connected with love making babies, the ultimate enjoyment of connection, the union of individuals, the procreation of the race, lifetime diseases—that is, it’s Not Just a Cup of Coffee.

College students “should be” intelligent enough to make important decisions based on their principles, using a measure of self-discipline and foresight. If you can’t handle managing this giant act, it’s no wonder I hear faculty constantly complaining about the lack of discipline and foresight in students’ academic performance.
Please inform me: Is it really the norm to act as if you are 5 years old, wantonly eating candy with your rotting, decaying teeth? Is falling onto a stranger’s genitals in accidental blind stupors typical for students? Or is the “media” painting a false picture and making it look as though this is the norm?

Is giving strangers a go at your genitals at the risk of giving them Rot so much more important than making sure the other 99% of your Self is beautiful, intelligent, extraordinary, vigorous?

Nature has a way of thinning the herd. Get smart, Fu'cryin' Out Loud.

I hope you will educate me, and start a discussion among the k-state collegian readers. I really would like to know where the norm is.
