When Columbia University student, Emma Sulkowicz, carried her mattress around as a symbol of rape, it made for great theatre. Others also began carrying around a mattress in sympathy. Meanwhile, the alleged rapist, fellow student at Columbia University, Paul Nungesser, had his reputation blown into a billion ugly pieces.
