Daily Jolt post is respectful towards women

Editor’s note: This article was initially published in The Daily Gazette, Swarthmore’s online, daily newspaper founded in Fall 1996. As of Fall 2018, the DG has merged with The Phoenix. See the about page to read more about the DG.

In response to a “Tri-Co All-Star Hot List” which mostly mentioned students who have already graduated, or “that Bryn Mawr whore from Sager,” GN 11:52 wrote a post that was frankly unbelievable in the context of the Jolt.

In the post, GN 11:52 made the following assertions: that Bryn Mawr students should be called “women,” not “whores,” that Tri-Co women had better things to do than trying to look “hot” for guys on the Daily Jolt, and that “throwing cans at sluts” could be construed as a misogynistic act and was almost certainly not going to get anybody laid.

The next three posts, in order, went “Funniest post ever (9),” “thanks for the input, women’s studies major,” and “i blame the freshmen.”

Although her identity has not yet been ascertained, GN 11:52 is almost certainly a woman, and may well be a women’s studies major. What was she doing on the Jolt in the first place? That question may never be answered.
