There are 30,000 to 50,000 sex slaves in America, said economics professor Richard Lotspeich at a Pizza and Politics meeting Wednsday. Lotspeich gave a discussion about what defines

human trafficking and how students, can put an end to it or raise awareness on campus. He said people mistake human trafficking for prostitution or when people are literally smuggled across the border. Human trafficking,

however, is actually forcing people into labor. “Human trafficking is not new to us. It may take different forms, but it’s just a new name to an old practice,” he said. PAGE 2

Members of the ISU community are welcome to take a single copy of each issue of this newspaper. The Indiana Statesman exists for four main reasons: to provide the ISU community with news and information, to serve the campus as a public forum for student and reader, to offer student staff members chances to apply their skills in different aspects of a news publication, and to give students leadership opportunities.

Students at the “Pizza and Politics” event broke off into groups and discussed questions regarding human trafficking Wednesday evening (Photo by Maggie Edwards).

Lotspeich said that human trafficking is a public “issue of injustice,” adding that victims don’t have a protection of their rights. It is also a public health issue, he said, due to the amount of assaulted victims and sexually transmitted diseases. “The people that are involved usually tend to come from people who lack personal security and come from poverty throughout their lives,” he said. Some students may turn a blind eye to the issue and won’t care much or think about it, since it doesn’t directly affect their lives, while others are going to be more sociably conscious and be aware of the problem and how to act on it, Lotspeich said. “There is a wide variety of responses that students can have. But we must also remember that students are very busy people,” he said. Altomise Harris, a freshman biology major, said that some students may turn a blind eye to the issue. “It’s not happening to them or people that they know and they’re too busy to care. They have that mindset of why should we care,” she said. Harris said she knew very little about human trafficking until she came to the event and wants

to be more aware about the issue as well as go to more events to give her support. Asia Frempong, a freshman elementary education major, left the discussion with her eyes opened to a whole new perspective. “There are 27 million people that are going through what they are going through. They are fighting for their lives,” she said. Frempong said she is going to bring awareness to campus, like the organizations on Facebook, so she and her friends can remain updated. “I wanted to let the people going through the situation know we are fighting for them and for them to know that they are loved, they are beautiful, they are stronger and that everything is going to be okay,” she said. Lotspeich said he wanted students to “take away a larger variety of awareness with the

problem of human trafficking and to go away with some critical thinking. It’s a complicated issue.” Students were placed in groups, so they could reflect their opinions and thoughts about the discussion. Each table had a group leader and a list of questions to be used during their discussions. To encourage student involvement, a presentation was given on victims who were rescued and on organizations, such as Love 146, A21 Campaign, Live Your Dream and Not for Sale, which raise awareness by making jewelry, t-shirts and posters. The proceeds go toward the victims getting rescued to get a fresh start. Students who want to spread awareness can also attend Human Rights Day on March 26, or check out No One Left Behind through Facebook and Twitter.

Students rally against sexual assault with multiple events

Above and below right: On Wednesday, students painted the number one on the palms of their hands as a symbol of unity against sexual assault. Student Health Promotions is hosting the series “No One Left Behind” to raise awareness about the affected victims (Photos by Mae Robyn Rhymes).

Jon Hook Reporter Student Health Promotions will be hosting two events to raise awareness of sexual assault. As part of a series entitled “No One Left Behind,” these events seek to raise awareness about sexual assault amongst students, faculty and staff and to provide support for sexual assault victims. Senior public health major Aubry Merkel, who is a worker at Student Health Promotions, said she felt it was important to stand with victims of sexual assault. “Sometimes victims of sexual assault don’t feel like they have a voice. With No One Left Behind we’re giving a voice to these victims and working to end sexual assault,” she said. On April 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Dede Plaza, students will have a chance to express their feelings on sexual assault by painting their thoughts on t-shirts which will be then be photographed as part of a series to help spread the word about the cause. Earlier this week students met at the ISU fountain to show their solidarity with victims of sexual assault by having the number one painted on the palm of their hand. The students then posed for photographs showing off

the characteristic symbol of unity. On April 9, at 8 p.m., Student Health Promotions will host the main event, No One Left Behind, at the Dede Plaza. They will be projecting the photographs of students taken this week on a big screen and will be offering a sexual assault awareness course called “Step Up.” Merkel said Step Up is a program aimed at intervention against sexual assault by teaching students, faculty and staff what to do if they ever witness sexual assault. “Step Up screens people on how sexual assault occurs and what to do when they witness sexual assault so they feel confident on knowing how to act,” she said. Student Health Promotions has worked with the Council on Domestic Abuse in the past and will be accepting donations of toiletries, furniture and gently used items in the future. To learn more about the programs they offer or to get involved with No One Left Behind, please contact the Sycamore Center for Wellness and Applied Medicine at (812) 237-3939.

Step up and speak out

For the past few years we’ve heard the crazy stories about the Westboro Baptist Church and the hate they spread. After no more than five minutes of being on their website I had to exit out because I was completely horrified. Kenzie Not only are these people McAdams racist and homophobic, Prove they even protest at military funerals. But despite their Them efforts to tear people down, Wrong one man is lifting people’s spirits. According to the New York Times, a man named Aaron Jackson decided to take things into his own hands and spread a little peace after he was inspired by seeing a picture of nine-year-old Josef Miles picketing the church with a small sign written in pencil that simply said “Gods hates no one.” After looking up the church, he noticed that right across the street from the church, a house was for sale. He ended up buying the house in Kansas and painted it with all the colors in the rainbow to mimic the gay pride flag. The Westboro Baptists spewed negative comments and said to the Los Angeles Times that “the Sodomite rainbow house is another instance where someone has declared their sin.” However, Miles says that everyone he has come in contact with has praised and thanked him. Now known as “The Equality House,” activist Jackson states that the people of Topeka are so happy for the change. His website,, says that the house is a symbol of equality, peace and positive change. CNN states that Jackson and his group will be running anti-bullying campaigns out of the house. According to, Jackson has raised over $24,000 in donations which just goes to show that there truly are kind people

left in the world. says that lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender teens are nearly five times more likely to take their lives through suicide than a straight teen is. An article by Kevin Caruso from suicide. org states that intolerance against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community is rooted in ignorance. Many people are ignorant to the fact that others feel differently than them. Some think that being homosexual makes them less of a person. Jackson says he wants these children and young adults to realize that they are fine just the way they are. The Trevor Project, founded in 1998 by James Lecesne, Peggy Rajski and Randy Stone, was created after a 13-year-old boy took his own life after being harassed by classmates for being gay. This organization provides help and intervention for homosexual teens facing suicide. This suicide prevention project is just one

of the many helping to erase the bullying of homosexual children and young adults. There are still dozens of people taking their lives due to bullying because of their sexuality. According to the Huffington Post, back in January, 15-year-old Jadin Bell hung himself at the local elementary school playground after being harassed by classmates online and in person. Huffington Post also says that in December, 17-year-old Josh Pacheco took his life after being bullied because he was gay. There are a dozen more stories just like this one. So many children and teens are dying because they feel hopeless and hated. We must stand up against hate and inequality just like Jackson is doing. Everyone deserves the right to love who they choose, so open your mind.

Not agreeing with the Pope won’t make you a bad Catholic

Julian Winborn Progress for Progress’ Sake

Throughout its expansive history, the Catholic Church has been at the center of controversy and political debate. Even so, the church has remained firm in its religious convictions, showcased by the election last week of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis. The meeting of the Papal Conclave following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, who will now be known as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, has reminded the world of the Catholic Church’s unwavering commitment to ritual, tradition and drama. The 150 Cardinals from across the world gathered in Rome at the Vatican to elect a new Pope, and carried out the 2,000-year-old pageantry that is emblematic of their religious

devotion. As the cardinals met in impenetrable privacy to pray and cast their votes, Catholics across the world were concerned with how the new pope would direct the church. Internationally, Catholics are debating the relevancy of the church and its views on leadership roles for women, rights of homosexuals and priests’ involvement with pedophillia. For more than 30 years, American nuns have raised a united voice in the hope that the

Vatican would allow them greater representation and freedom within the Church without the restrictions that have been imposed by church patriarchs. In 1979, Sister Theresa Kane, the president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, was bestowed with the honor of welcoming Pope John Paul II to Washington D.C. However, instead of preparing a standard welcome speech, she challenged the pope. She spoke for other nuns who questioned the church’s supposed “reverence and dignity of all persons” and encouraged the church to honor its message by “providing the possibility of women as persons being included in all ministries.” Although Sister Theresa’s bold charge to Pope John Paul II did not yield the result she desired, hers was the first brave voice to begin a public discussion about church patriarchy and inequality toward homosexual men and women even at the extreme disapproval of the Vatican. In its assessment, the Vatican has accused American nuns of engaging in “radical feminism” and promoting social justice causes and views that are not consistent with those espoused by church leaders. The issues that are facing the Catholic Church and the newly elected Pope Francis are serious and legitimate, and Catholics are very interested as to how Pope Francis will approach these issues. Thus far, many are hopeful, including the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Many see the new pope’s Jesuit background as an

indication of a progressive agenda, particularly in regard to serving the poor, promoting conversation between various faiths and addressing pedophilia. However, the pope’s anticipated agenda still does not appear to offer American nuns and Catholics the progressive social justice they strongly desire. For example, he has referred to gay marriage and adoption as “anthropologically backwards” and attributes the movement to the “Father of Lies.” Even though Pope Francis is truly an invigorating addition to the papacy, it appears that Catholics are far too concerned with how he will confront issues within the faith and not persistent enough in how they will progress the Church. The pope may be revered as the closest man to God within the Catholic hierarchy, and the Vatican may be the center of Catholicism, but the pope is simply a man and the Vatican is a conglomeration of men. Catholics do not have to wait for action to occur at the apex of the hierarchy for definitive progress. Rather, they must spur such change themselves, and that will result in no consequence that will damage their devotion to the faith. Catholics must now take their church into their own hands and decide for themselves how their millennia old institution will serve God and humanity for the years to come.

A life for a life, right? Two days ago at his sentencing at the court house, 17-year-old Ohio school shooter, T.J. Lane, laughed and flipped off everyone present. Lane killed three students and injured three students in a school shooting that happened on Feb. 27, 2012. Jacob Lane acted childish and immature Rivers at the sentencing, but he was too Letters to young for the death penalty. Instead he three life terms in prison and My Fish received no chance of parole. My opinions on the death penalty for murder cases are very strong, and Lane’s story caught my eye. Not only did he commit a vile crime, but the way in which he acted in court was despicable and calls for his death. Covered by ABC News, Lane came to his hearing wearing a blue button down shirt, and when everyone had arrived, he pulled off his blue shirt to reveal a white shirt with the word, “killer” on it. During his statement,

he said “f**k all of you,” to the families and the court and showed them his middle finger. While the families of the departed were giving statements such as, “I want him to feel my anger towards him, after today I refuse to give him a second of my thoughts. He is repulsive. We don’t speak his name and we never will,” Lane laughed as the mother spoke. He smirked when she called him a “pathetic excuse for a human being.” Lane will rot away in jail for the rest of his life. He will also have cable, air conditioning, three meals a day and a bed to sleep on. In a situation such as this, when Lane was completely unremorseful, why should Lane be allowed to live? At his sentencing, Lane acted like it was all a big joke. It was like he was enjoying the pain and anger of these people, and was happy that he hurt so many families. It simply isn’t right that Lane will live a comfortable existence in prison while the victim’s families pay taxes that keep him that way.

According to, the death penalty law in most states is only applicable to criminals over the age of 18. There are a few states that try criminals at the age of 16 and older as adults, but most high school shootings have involved an underage shooter. Since 2010, there have been 14 school shootings where the killer was under the age of 18, but the death penalty law hasn’t been lowered and no exceptions have been made. Would it be unlawful to sentence an underage shooter to death who killed multiple students, leaving their families and friends to suffer, to death? If students were competent enough to go on a rampage for no reason, they should be tried as competent adults. The court of law can be too easy on criminals, and some may disagree, but murder is terrible thing. Receiving a life sentence can be bad, sure, but being sentenced to death is a fair ending. An eye for an eye and a life for a life is the fairest sentence that can be brought upon people like that.

Campus celebrates nutrition month with screening of ‘Forks Over Knives’

The idea of using food as a method to alter overall health is not a new concept. From Hippocrates to Thomas Edison, many have been quoted supporting the benefits of proper nutrition as a way to combat diseases. Film maker Lee Fulkerson agrees with this notion in his film “Forks Over Knives.” As part of National Nutrition Month a group of ISU students and faculty gathered Wednesday in an effort to spread awareness of the importance of healthy eating. “What we choose to fuel our bodies with may have a direct effect on our mind, body and spirit,” said Crystal Durrill, a dietetic graduate student. “Being informed about nutrient-rich foods, reading food labels, proper food safety, portion control and exercise are all important parts of helping improve or maintain overall health.” The main event of the presentation was the showing of a documentary entitled “Forks Over Knives.” According to the film’s website it examines the claim that many of the “degenerative diseases” that affect American society can be avoided by choosing to eat a non-animal based and processed foods diet. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions, 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year. One-third of U.S. citizens are obese, and medical costs for diseases associated with obesity in 2008 were estimated at $147 billion. According to the film, many of these illnesses that plague America can be avoided and in some instances reversed by switching to a whole foods, plant-based diet. The film follows two researchers, T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn. They examine the impact the animalbased diet has on the overall health of individuals it was discovered that many health ailments such as heart disease and diabetes could be avoided by adapting a plant-based diet. In addition, various patients diagnosed with a degenerative disease were taught how altering their diet can improve their health much more than taking prescription medication. Durrill said the screening of the movie was not to promote a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, but to spark conversation about

making smarter choices when it came to nutrition and to get more informed about their own health. She recognizes that there can be inherent bias in documentaries. “We are the frontiers to better health,”

“Nutrition is so important because it is the medicine that feeds our bodies.” Crystal Orly, dietetic graduate student said Crystal Orly, a dietetic graduate. “It only makes sense that we educate ourselves as much as we can about exercise, nutrition, and environmental concerns so we can help shape up this state and this country.” Durrill said that currently, she and Orly are in the process of revitalizing the ISU Food and Nutrition Club to continue to spread nutrition awareness on campus. Seventeen students have expressed an interest in joining thus far and it is projected that the group will have its first meeting

sometime in April. Durrill said a Food and Nutrition Club was started in 2000 as a professional club for various students with interest in food management, safety and nutrition. “Nutrition is so important because it is the medicine that feeds our bodies,” Orly said. “We need to stop the fast food, Styrofoam using, pill popping mentality and just have another apple.” Durrill said the club aims to educate members on nutrition through various activities and meetings. Orly added that it is easy to indulge on college campuses and that students need to be more mindful of what they eat. “To bring awareness about nutrition is always a positive step,” Durril said. “Some students may already be well informed and some may not. The Food and Nutrition Club would like to increase awareness of nutrition education not just for the student body but for the community and form partnerships with other organizations on campus involved in improving overall health.”

Another Perspective: Workshop simulates challenges in adapting to a new culture Joseph Paul Reporter Imagine living in a completely different culture where, over the years, a hierarchal society dominated by women has thrived. In the process, several customs and traditions have arisen regarding interactions between men and women. Nick Penington, a Junior social work major, was tossed into this “counterculture” during the workshop, BaFa BaFa, held by the Office of Diversity on Tuesday night. As a male, he was not allowed to speak and was required to bow to his knees when in the presence of a woman. “I was like, ‘Oh, this will be easy, besides the language barrier and the Office of Diversity,’” he said. As a student who has studied abroad, Penington said he’s become accustomed to interacting with people of different cultures. But what he didn’t expect was such a drastic flip in his societal status. This hierarchy defines the “Alpha” culture as an imaginary culture that comes to life during what is called a “BaFa BaFa” workshop. Invented by Garry Shirts, Ph.D. in the 1970s, “BaFa BaFa” is a hands-on, cross-cultural experience designed to encourage positive interactions between different cultures and genders, according to the Simulation Training Systems website. This is the first year that the Office of Diversity has been involved with the event. On the other hand is the “Beta” culture – a society of traders whose main purpose is to drive a hard bargain and achieve the best possible deal. Those who participate in this culture are given color-coded, numbered trading cards and use a special “Beta” trading language in order to acquire the desired hand of just one color with the numbers one through seven. When the workshop begun, participants were divided into either the “alpha” or “beta” cultures and separated in order to learn their specific language and customs. Next, one member of either culture was sent to observe the other and then

asked to return and describe what they saw in their own words. Then, one by one, a member of each culture was sent to the other in order to interact and live as a minority. “The point is so that person can live in that majority [of people] and see how it is to live in a culture that you’re not used to,” James Jones, a student worker at the Office of Diversity and facilitator of the event, said. A short discussion was held after the workshop to address the importance of cross-cultural interaction. During the discussion, those who observed the opposite culture described how they perceived their lifestyles and customs. Jones asked participants to abandon these preconceived notions and experience other cultures first hand. “These are the things that we think

about when we’re experiencing new cultures,” Jones said. “Through a third person, it’s even worse because you don’t get the full experience of that culture, you only hear what they want you to hear … and that could put a big wrench in your mind when you’re thinking about experiencing a new culture, a new food, something new that you’re only hearing about through the third-person.” Penington said he attended the event because he believes too many stereotypes regarding different cultures, races and genders have arisen in the U.S. due to such notions. “I work in the study abroad office and I work a lot with international students,” he said. “But also my major is social work so I want to be more culturally immersed … especially in the U.S.

now where we need more culturally competent people.” Jones agreed that students at ISU and people across the globe could use workshops like “BaFa BaFa” to expand what they think they know about other cultures. “There’s always going to people - it’s not that they’re ignorant - that just might not understand different cultures,” he said. “They might not feel comfortable because they’ve probably had negative experiences in past cultures. Speaking about ISU directly, I think we expect a lot less from our students than we really should.” Those who would like to get involved with the Office of Diversity should attend an upcoming “BaFa BaFa” workshop set for April 16 in HMSU 407 from 6-7:30 p.m.

STUDENTS STAND FOR FREEDOM Students from the student organization Campus Outreach gathered at Dede Plaza then migrated inside Hulman Memorial Student Union to help raise awareness about a still controversial issue, human sex trafficking and bring awareness to the “End it” movement, which seeks to inform people on the same issue. As many people walked pass their booth, they asked them to sign a paper stating that they were against sex trafficking and to stand with a sign for 30 seconds. According to, there are 161 countries reported to be affected by human trafficking, there are 27 million slaves world wide and 80 percent of those enslaved are women. Left: Students were asked to hold up these signs to help raise awareness as they passed by the display.
