And of ALL the days to do this, they choose mother's day...

Since Con Law studying and Mother's Day happen to be overlapping today, I am particularly attuned to any gender discrimination that might be going on here at F.U. Law. So you can imagine my surprise when I walked past the women's restroom on the garden level to see a letter posted on the door about a recent mugging in the neighborhood. I assumed that the same letter would be posted on the men's bathroom door to warn at least the gays not to walk alone in the 'hood, but, alas, there was no such warning. Being the procrastinator that I am, I set out to find where else said letter was posted. I have only encountered one other copy in the library elevator.

If I were to inquire into the purpose of these selective postings, I would have to say that F.U. Law security is making a classification here: girls and those people too lazy to walk up the stairs are the most likely to get taken advantage of by a 5 ft 4 inch 45-50 year old hispanic woman. I guess in the end, the gays were warned, since I haven't seen one take the stairs since September.

A Gender Based Classification.

No Letter. Someone invoke heightened scrutiny, and quick.
Or is it intermediate. I have no f-ing clue and the test is on Tuesday.

The Security Alert in question.

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but there was no FishWatch yesterday.

F Dubbs, there are my of us, myself included, whose mental stability depends on the daily postings of FU's trials and tribulations.

Yesterday, we were let down...and I think we all lost a little part of ourselves that we may never get back.

Please understand that your contribution is all some of us can look forward to anymore.

I like that the woman in the description was wearing sweatpants and flats. Because sweatpants and heels would have been a faux pas.

Sweat pants are never okay.
