Controversy over Christ Church GCR consent workshop comments

first_imgA letter sent round to new graduate students by Christ Church’s Graduate Common Room (GCR) has been attacked by members of the Facebook based group for the student magazine Cuntry Living, for trivialising the consent workshops it was describing.The message, in the listing for workshops in ‘TheOldÆdesian,’ the GCR’s newsletter, read, “Consent is a thing now. Apparently it hasn’t always been (see Ancient Rome), but now it is. In a somewhat pleasant irony, you must attend, whether you consent to or not. But fear not, the atmosphere will be cordial and there will be delicious nibbles. GCR 3:00”Alice Nutting, an undergraduate at Exeter, commented, “I thought the wording of the newsletter was really insensitive as it appeared to trivialise the subject of consent and drew a bizarre comparison between having to attend a sexual consent workshop and being raped. It was also misleading as it didn’t stress that anyone can leave at any time, for any reason. The newsletter was screenshotted and discussed at length on Cuntry Living and the general reaction was one of horror and disgust.”Lucy McDonald, another undergraduate, said, “To imply that being forced to attend a sexual consent workshop (which is not happening anyway – the workshop at Christ Church is voluntary) is in anyway analogous to being raped is not ‘ironic’ or funny. The misogyny and general lad culture at Oxford is intimidating enough as it is, and now new students are being given the impression that their student body doesn’t care at all about sexual violence. It’s disgusting.”However, when contacted by Cherwell, the GCR President replied, “I would like to be absolutely clear that the topic of sexual consent is no joking matter in Christ Church. The inclusion of a joke by the writers of the newsletter was certainly not intended to trivialise the issue of consent, but was inappropriate and ill-judged nevertheless.“I would like to apologise unreservedly on behalf of the entire GCR committee, and hope that anyone who attends the consent workshops on Friday will see how seriously they are taken by all members and peers. Committee members have put in a lot of effort to ensure that these workshops are held in the first place, and by choosing to conduct them compulsorily during 0th week, our hope is to provide a safe space where members can evaluate and further their understanding of consent, and also to encourage community-wide conversations.”Meanwhile, Jordan Black, the original author of the text, commented, “The newsletter was written and edited in close conjunction with people of all genders, including survivors. These workshops are designed to spark a positive and productive discussion about consent, and in that light I would like to make it absolutely clear that the joke in question was not intended to trivialise the issue, but rather to highlight just how overdue these workshops are.”He added, “I worked to bring these workshops, which are currently completely optional for Oxford college common rooms, to the Christ Church GCR to make it clear from the outset that the issue of consent is taken extremely seriously.”last_img read more

Phish Displayed Their “Cow Funk” Mastery In Philadelphia, On This Day In 1997 [Full Video]

first_imgSETLIST: Phish | CoreStates Spectrum | Philadelphia, PA | 12/3/97SET 1: Punch You In the Eye > My Soul, Drowned, The Old Home Place, Gumbo > Also Sprach Zarathustra > You Enjoy MyselfSET 2: David Bowie[1] -> Possum > Jam -> Prince Caspian > Frankenstein > Harry HoodENCORE: Crossroads Late 1997: what a time to be alive for Phish fans. With the band at the peak of their technical and improvisational abilities, virtually every one of Fall Tour ’97’s 21 dates–collectively referred to as “Phish Destroys America”–can be singled out as a career highlight for the band. Their performance at Philadelphia’s CoreStates Spectrum arena on this date was no different. Coming off a similarly stellar show at the same venue the previous night, Phish delivered an absolute gem for the Philly faithful. After a blistering “Punch You In the Eye” opener, the band gave a tight rendition of Clifton Chenier blues staple “My Soul”.Watch Phish Play Their Longest Jam Ever In Worcester, Twenty Years Ago [Video]While “Punch”>”My Soul” served as a high energy, if somewhat textbook opening segment, the “Drowned” that followed was far from standard fare. The band took the Mike Gordon-sung The Who cover for a funktastic 16-minute ride that stacks up with some of the tour’s best pieces of improv. With Page McConnell leading the way for much of the song’s structure, the jam morphs into an all-out dance party, with each member of the band connecting on seemingly telepathic levels. This “Drowned” is the epitome of the sound that’s become the hallmark of ’97 Phish– “cow funk”–a moniker inspired in equal parts by the existing “cowpunk” sub-genre, the baffling number of cows in the band’s home state of Vermont, and a quote from Trey in Richard Gehr‘s The Phish Book: “What we’re doing now is really more about groove than funk. Good funk, real funk, is not played by four white guys from Vermont. If anything, you could call what we’re doing cow funk or something.” The top-notch first set continued with flawless takes on “The Old Home Place” and “Gumbo”, before the band sent the show to halftime with a fantastic “2001”>”You Enjoy Myself”.The show’s second frame kept up the energy that highlighted the impressive first set, as the band patiently works through an extended intro (including pieces of “Charge!”, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”, and “Baby Elephant Walk”, and a Simpsons signal, taboot) before going Type-II for a captivating major key jam clocking in at over 26 minutes in length. “Possum” came next, followed by a funky “Jam” segment that bled beautifully into “Prince Caspian”. The rest of the set was Phish feeling good, with Page laying down the groove for “Frankenstein” before closing it out with a beautiful “Harry Hood”.The band had one more trick up their sleeves for the encore, as they busted out a cover of blues classic “Crossroads”, originally by Robert Johnson and popularized by Cream. With that, Phish bid farewell to Philadelphia, and hit the road through the midwest for a soon-to-be legendary weekend run.You can watch both sets in their entirety below, courtesy of YouTube user Tyler Penn:Set 1:Set 2: [1] Simpsons signal. Unfinished.NOTES: Drowned included a Couldn’t Stand the Weather jam. 2001 contained Super Bad teases from Trey. Bowie was preceded by a Charge! tease, included Take Me Out to the Ballgame and Baby Elephant Walk teases, a Simpsons signal, and was unfinished.[Cover photo via LivePhish, from MSG 12/29/97]last_img read more
