There’s no doubt that a lot of people don’t believe in the #metoo movement. In fact, when it resurfaced in Fall 2017, I didn’t want to believe that my personal story was a part of it. Two years ago, I transferred to Roger Williams University from Saint Anselm College. Emotional abuse happens…

I can confidently say that music is a huge aspect of each and every one of our lives... and so is sex. What a coincidence. We spend a large part of our day with our earbuds in or speakers blasting as we listen to the sounds of our favorite artist or genre. Because of this, our music tastes i…
