Letter from the editor

| Editor-in-Chief

Dear readers,

Today Student Life published an op-ed piece titled “A letter to my rapist on his graduation,” written by an anonymous Washington University student, on our website. Student Life typically does not permit submissions to be run anonymously, but due to the sensitive and personal subject matter of the piece, we have made an exception for this article. It has been subjected to the same level of scrutiny and editing as all other op-eds published by Student Life. If you have any questions or concerns about this decision, please do not hesitate to contact me at editor@studlife.com.

Thank you for your understanding and continued readership,

Sam Seekings, Editor-in-Chief

  • Art Bell Not really

    You would have been better off publishing information about local Law Enforcement, and other resources available to Rape Victims and encouraging them to call the police, get the rape kit test done, and press charges.

    As for the anonymous letter, it is merely the reflections of someone who lacks the character to stand up for themselves and instead prefers to be the victim.

    Don’t be a victim. Fight Back. Call the Police. Press charges.

    Whining accomplishes nothing. We ALL want rapists punished.
