There are some disturbing remarks in the threads on @seattletimes article. These imply that because the study was small, it's irrelevant. But that is quite obviously false. Every raped woman is relevant. And the coercion of Native women by non-Native men has historical context.

idiots,. they can't live in your millitant post-post-modern dissent. you're using people you've coerced to be there as props. and none of you read the RZ report or attended subsequent meetings. you are not actually interested in housing at #58WHastings. clearly. #HousingJustice
