Mostly just for me and swashbucklr

The schedule of the Dismantling Rape Culture Conference at UVM next week, with me bolding the things I'm more interested in.

* Stop Porn Culture's "Who wants to be a porn star? Sex and violence in today's pornography industry"

11:00-11:15 AM Break

11:15 AM-12:45 PM Workshop Session #2

* Perpetrators are Predators: What Research Tells Us About Perpetration Patterns
* Stop Porn Culture's "Who wants to be a porn star? Sex and violence in today's pornography industry."
* A Survivor's Panel
* Why Are More Men Not Involved in the Movement to End Men's Violence Against Women and Can We Change That?
* African-American Women and Rape/Sexual Assault: Working at the Crossroads in a Rape Culture

12:45-2:00 PM Lunch
2:00-3:30 PM Workshop Session #3

* A Call to Action: Addressing misogyny, sexism and homophobia among queer men
* A Passport to Safer Travel: One Survivor's Story
* "Until the Violence Stops" - Film Viewing and Discussion
* TENTATIVE Clery Act Mandatory Reporting Panel
* TENTATIVE Creating Culture Change through Art and Graphic Design

Decisions. I has them. I'm sketchy on the "why aren't men involved?" thing just because I dislike this being framed as a men vs. women thing; I'm not interested in the porn panels because if they are Against All Porn Ever, well, I don't think porn = rape, so that's just not my topic.

Most of what I'm most interested in is in session #2. Why are they not repeating any of those, and instead we have two rounds of "porn is evil"? No fair! I demand that the world adjust itself to my interests!
