Genius Duke project calls out the offensive phrases we say every day

The normalization of homophobic and misogynistic language, especially among young people, is nothing new. But while there may be a growing awareness of the problem, there haven’t been many organized initiatives dedicated to eradicate these types of problematic expressions — until now. Enter Duke University’s campaign “You Don’t Say,” which is an effort to remind students that language is powerful, and that word choice has consequences.

What’s makes blackout haunted house different is how they have real life scary scenes, like VIOLENT RAPE. 

The following content contains spoilers on what goes on at the haunted house:

Cracked.com had an article in which the guy explains what he had to go through, it includes things like being suffocated, witnessing horrifying violent sex scenes, and he himself had to go to do some pretty gruesome things to escape. He had to put his hand through a toilet bowl filled with vomit to obtain a set of keys. He even was told to staple his hands together. (Not real vomit and staple gun was empty)

He says that past schemes at this house had other horrifying things, like making the visitors suck on bloody tampons. 

It’s a psychologically twisting place. Luckily if it’s too much for you, you can yell SAFETY and you will escorted out. You won’t get your money back tho (that’s $50 gone).
