Woman sues Stonehill College over roommate's sexual activity
patriotledger.com ^ | 03/04/2012 | n/a

A former Stonehill College student is suing the college, saying it did not help her move out of a dorm she shared with a roommate who she claims was overly sexual.

Lindsay Blankmeyer, who says she suffers from depression and attention deficit disorder, is seeking $150,000 from Stonehill, claiming the college violated state and federal laws because housing officials did not give her reasonable alternatives for escaping a bad living situation.

In the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Boston on Wednesday, Blankmeyer alleges that her senior-year roommate had sex with her boyfriend as Blankmeyer tried to sleep a few feet away.

Ah, my brother's ex-college. I've been there a few times. Very green, very affluent sort of place.

Costs an arm and a leg, though.

I will say what everyone else is thinking... Was the roommate’s name Fluke?

Hmmm. Now here's a co-ed that I want to hear testify before Congress about the injustices imposed upon her by the morally bankrupt culture in our colleges that have otherwise been praised and celebrated by the Sandra Fluke's of the world.

Justice demands equal time, right?

I think her afflictions - “depression and attention deficit disorder” - will preclude that, but the article did mention her name, so she’s a legit target now. (Isn’t ADD/ADHD just “imagined”, as Rush has stated many times?)

Interesting, because Stonehill is an allegedly Catholic college. It’s run by the Jesuits, so that’s probably why the college never did anything about this woman’s roommate continuing to have sex, while she was trying to sleep in her own room! Who DOES that, anyway? That’s just disgusting, and makes me think of rutting animals, not human beings!

I have found that a 5 gallon bucket of ice water will stop sex pretty quick with dogs and people who act with the same morals as dogs.

I a surprised that the school did not act. She must not have complained much. I know some administrators there, and all they do, all day long is fix kids problems because the parents whine about it.

Funny stuff for a catholic college.

Are we just supposed to accept the fact that some room mates want to use their dorm rooms as brothels?

If I were paying between $8-10,000/yr for a dorm room, shouldn’t I expect that I am entitled to use the space to study and to sleep? Why should I have to pretend to not know that sexual activity a few yards from my half of the room and that I am just expected to put up with it. I don’t understand why anybody would put up with that on a regular basis.

I neve rethought this would happen to me. See, I am a student at a small Midwestern liberal arts college, and one night my roommate.......

Funny you should ask. A friend of mind said her former roommates in college did the same thing. Did not care if my friend was a few feet over from them. This was back in the early 90’s.

I went to college in the early 80’s and had a roommate like this for one semester. I am male, and walked in on him a few times. Finally got him to understand the need to let me know some kind of timeline or hang a sign on the door.

At the time, it didn’t bother me as much as it bothered his girl pals. At least at first, then later many would service him orally practically in front of me.

Ah, the days of youth...

My son had this problem with his roommate in college. The guy’s girlfriend slept in their room EVERY night. My son would leave and spend the night in another friend’s dorm room. WHAT kind of a girl has sex with her boyfriend all the while knowing someone is several feet away from you and can hear everything? Totally disgusting! Slutty even!!

Well, my ex-college roommate's current wife, for one, but of course the roommate was equally responsible.

Lust conquers all.

Those were some lonely nights.

“I have found that a 5 gallon bucket of ice water will stop sex pretty quick with dogs and people who act with the same morals as dogs”
Or she could have taped it and posted it on Youtube, that may have precluded from happening again!

I guess paying for contraception wasn’t an issue!

The following quote is from page 145 of the Stonehill College student handbook:

Stonehill College student handbook, page 145 (PDF)

"Students must obtain permission from their roommate(s) for a guest to stay through the night.... Behavior that is intrusive to the privacy of the roommate(s) is prohibited... As a Catholic institution, Stonehill College does not condone cohabitation."

Clearly, the school has failed to provide Lindsay with the kind of campus life that the school advertises in its manual.

Why would Laura even apply to such a school in the first place?

I’d take a loyal blue-eyed redhead with a brain over the frizzed-out blonde herpes farm at the peak of her 10 years of popularity. Any day. Oh wait — that’s not what this article’s about?

Looks like the media is playing “smear the square” with this girl’s picture. That’ll teach her to pretend she has the same rights to sue as a liberal woman.

You need to read the captions in #24 more carefully. I do believe you have the players reversed.

Thankyou for that astounding summary!

With so much to consider and debate sometimes the bigger issue can get a little clouded.Sometimes an issue just needs nutshelling to clear the intellectual air and clarify the bigger picture.

This you have done.Not with airs and graces and hollow platitudes but with a simple "yes" and "no".

Bravo sir!

Maybe her roomie would have been better off attending Morehead College.
