Campus Warfare: Updated and Bumped

Guerrilla style!

I found this on da internets.

I’m very tempted to make a few 8.5×11 copies and place them on bulletin boards around campus in the early AM before anyone shows up.

Dare me?

UPDATE: Dare accepted!

Unfortunately, my college has no Wymins Studies department. The only thing listed in the catalog’s “W” section is “Welding Technology” and I’m sure it would go over quite well there. But that is not the point.

However, OPPORTUNITY has arisen from the fires of my imagination.

Seattle Central Communist College is not too far from my work and sits on Broadway in Seattle’s Capital Hill neighborhood. I am not known there. My visage being posted from any security cameras that I happen to not spot would raise no flags. It DOES have a Wymins Studies department. It is also the college that gives students class credit for attending protests. Most notably, the WTO riots of 1999. But any protest will do for them (except a Tea Party, unless you’re counter protesting).

So, let me look into printing costs and then I’ll give said print shop a couple of weeks to erase any security tapes they may record and I think I can camouflage myself in the native garb well enough not to stand out and see how it goes.

Anyone local want to join in the fun?

A couple questions from the comments: First, “Hate Crime”? Really? Is it the “Sanctimonious Scolds” that puts it over the top? And second, there is caution and then there is paranoia. It is a fine line but some folks walk right along it. This is a pasted handbill, not a Molotov Cocktail.

    What a riot… you must! bet they don’t stay up 10 mins tho. Maybe a few every day for a week? WOW does the truth hurt.

    I double dog dare you!!!

    What college student / blogger doesn’t want to be prosecuted under federal hate crime statutes?

    If you really have the guts, wear gloves from the moment you open the ream of paper, throughout the printing process, ’till you glue it up on a pole or building using industrial epoxy all over the back.

    The entertainment value alone as mortified wymmin struggle to scrape it off would be worth all the effort.

    I triple dog dare you.

    And make sure to wear a “No Fat Chicks!” T-shirt while putting them up. 😛

    Before you get started, you need to read this:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/18/AR2005101801663.html

    I think everyone who has a problem with anything our government does had better read this if they own a computer at all.

    When you go to print these flyers, wear gloves.

    Generate the flyers on an embedded Linux system that never has been and never will be connected to a network.

    Take your memory stick to FedEx / Kinkos, or your local small print shop and do the printing in their business center instead of on your home computer / printer.

    Ensure your memory stick is newly formatted and wiped clean before using it for this project.

    Before beginning at the print shop look around for cameras monitoring the area. Many walk in print shops have been held up and have cameras, just like a liquor store. If they have cameras, don’t use them, find another place to print.

    Your municipal or college library may have a self serve print section where you place dollars in a vending machine and receive a magnetic card with credit to run a color printer.

    Pay cash at the print shop!

    Yes, I’m a bit paranoid. As a former intelligence analyst, I’m advising you to take simple and reasonable precautions to preserve your privacy as you exercise your Constitutional rights.

    Glue ’em on with “Eagle Brand” sweetened condensed milk. If they stay up long enough to dry, they’ll still be there in 3010.

    Oh, and isn’t it “Womyn’s” Studies?

    You’re welcome.

  7. Oh hell YES!

    I heartily approve!!

    Be sure to wear a mask. Learn how to alter your walk and stride. Wear three layer of sweatshirts to throw ’em off as to your size and weight. Try to be as abidexterous as possilbe in the process of posting. Confuses ’em, if they watch surveillence videos.

    Wear nothing you can’t dispose of (burn, preferably) immediately after, and be sure to take a belt sander to the soles of your tennies, till they’re down to the insole. Then shred what’s left.

    Follow Armageddon’s link, to the last letter. It’s Gospel.

    And just like shooting fast, don’t get in a hurry. Be slow, be smooth. Be nonchalant. Smooth is fast, after all.

    Oh, and have fun!

  12. Mollbot says:

    I have a feeling that the line about sexual identity would be pinged as possibly a hate crime before the one about scolds.

    Either way it’d be a hoot.
