Students experience prejudice, hatred in Tunnel of Oppression


Students got a taste of what it feels like to be victims of hate and discrimination yesterday on the opening night of the UA's 17th annual Tunnel of Oppression.

United States swimming in a culture of torture
photo There's nothing like staring at an inflatable bondage chair at the Continental Adult Shop over the lunch hour on Valentine's Day to make you positively optimistic about torture. On the front of the box, a pert and giggling school girl is tied to what looks like a giant black marshmallow with loose-fitting electrical tape. Compared to the news these days, it was almost chaste.

Metal, ink and flesh: the painful pleasure of tattoos and piercings.

No living human is a stranger to pain. But why do humans choose to endure pain in exchange for something as aesthetic as a tattoo or piercing?

"I don't know," she said. "I think I'm addicted to piercing. It's kind of a rush." [Read article]
