This Thursday, 8:30pm @ Happy Dog West, please come to a benefit show for the campaign to unseat Judge Aaron Persky. The show is $8. There are raffle goodies graciously donated by local vendors (Blue Arrow Records, The Black Market, Cleveland Print Room, Salty not Sweet Boutique, & Voodoo Monkey Tattoo… to name a few).
Judge Persky sentenced Brock Turner to six months (he served only 3 months) in county jail for assaulting an unconscious woman outside a fraternity party, behind a dumpster. Prosecutors had asked for a six-year prison sentence, because this was “not typical assaultive behavior that you find on campus, but it is more akin to a predator who is searching for prey.”
GRLCVLT PRESENTS:FUCK RAPE CULTURE
Please come, support the cause, protect survivors, not rapists. Be a part of positive change and shaping the future!

(This is in reference to Drump’s pussy grabbing statements but I found it very moving. The principal is my cousin and a stand up dude.) “Real men don’t treat women this way. We don’t talk about women this way. We don’t cheat on our spouses. We don’t force ourselves on women. We don’t joke about assaulting women. We don’t make light of assaulting women. We don’t strategize about assaulting women. Rapists do these things, not real men.”- Kline
