The sexual misconduct policy was amended this semester to specifically prohibit students and advisers from copying documents from the adjudication or investigative processes. “Copying” not only includes audio recording, photographs and scanning, but also “transcribing” – suggesting that students aren’t allowed to even take notes. FIRE’s guide says the “absence of a record makes both appeals and lawsuits against the university for wrongful actions far more difficult.”

Men are scared of women on campus now, and fear breeds anger and prejudice. Women are frustrated by men, which inspires a lack of desire to collaborate for solutions. “I have male friends who want consent and sobriety written in writing before any physical intimacy, and they’re getting laughed at by their female companions.”…”In a sense, it’s annoying and debilitating to be constantly questioned about whether or not I have agency and am a sexual human being.”

I receive emails from many who are falsely accused. I am often saddened at the manipulative nature of the accusers, and shocked by the powerful Title IX gender specialists who think every female accusation is true, and treat every accused college male as a sexual deviant. The gender specialists are Title IX snake charmers hypnotizing young college girls to believe they’ve been assaulted when they haven’t. Young accused men are denied their college degree, they are isolated from their college community and sports teams, they are denied access to college dining halls, denied access to professors, denied access to the library, and viciously shamed into a rubble of manhood. Accusers rarely call the police or seek a rape kit. Accusers always call the Title IX snake charmers. Below are some of the accusations that I know.
A male is studying in the library for an exam and is staring off into the distance. A girl in the library files a Title IX complaint because he stared too long in her direction. He is suspended for one year, and can not be on campus. Title IX says staring is sexual assault.
A High School male senior is accepted to college and ready to enroll in classes during the summer. The male is informed that his HS ex-girlfriend (who is not going to college) called his college to say her ‘rapist’ is coming to their college. The male can not register, or move into his dorm, while Title IX investigates this girl’s accusation of a kiss that happened not at college, but at HS 200 miles away. The young male’s life was in turmoil and nearly ruined before he even began college. A lawyer had to be retained for true justice. Title IX says sexual assault includes believing an accusation from a jealous HS girl made against a rising freshman.
In 2011 a male broke up with his girlfriend through texting. She filed a Title IX complaint. The girl’s father is a Professor at the college. The male was expelled and denied an education. Years later the girl admitted she lied and signed a notarized document stating that the male never assaulted her. The male is still being denied his college education. Title IX says sexual assault includes revenge from an ex-girlfriend.
In 2013 a sophomore male had consensual sex with a freshman female. “The freshmen class was subject to a new political order, and it really had an effect on the impressionable women…these young girls were so unsure of themselves and how to maintain adult encounters with mutual emotional respect that the only way they could assert their identity was through rash and damaging behavior.” The female filed a Title IX complaint. The male was expelled, denied his education, and still can not transfer to another college. Title IX says sexual assault includes consensual sex.
In 2014 during a family neighborhood gathering a girl pursued a guy who already had a girlfriend. For a year this girl ignored the guy’s wishes who kept saying he had a girlfriend. In 2015 the guy finally got through to the girl. Five months later the girl filed a Title IX complaint for an ‘assault’ that happened 150 miles away in 2014 during the family gathering. The male was suspended a year before graduation. The girl then brought her accusation to the male’s work place. He was fired. This male lost his scholarships, education, degree, and employment. Title IX says sexual assault includes females who are denied the attention of males.
In 2015 a girl asked a guy to take class notes for her, After a month the guy realized he was being used and told the girl he was not going to be taking notes for her anymore. She told him if he stopped taking her class notes, she would accuse him of sexual assault. The guy continued taking her class notes for fear of being accused by her. Title IX says sexual assault includes females threatening males to do what they say or else.

Law editor Luke Gittos argues that the obsession with a ‘culture of rape’ has seriously distorted our view of sexual violence, and that the expansion of laws to protect women is eroding areas of privacy and inviting state regulation of our most intimate affairs. It undermines our ability to live intimately with one another. This is dangerous for us all – not just men who may find themselves dragged into court following a sexual encounter they believed was consensual, but the drive to prosecute more people has dangerous implications for the fundamental principles of justice, and for basic freedoms. What matters is not whether a man is guilty or innocent, but whether a quota of rapists are convicted as an expression of society’s abhorrence of the crime. We are fast approaching a culture in which almost all heterosexual sex is seen as rape.

Twenty-first century America does not have a rape culture; what we have is an out-of-control lobby leading the public and our educational and political leaders down the wrong path. Rape-culture theory is doing little to help victims, but its power to poison the minds of young women and lead to hostile environments for innocent males is immense.

“The incident is problematic in two separate respects- first, it was a secret investigation. Secrecy is always a concern where the professor was not informed until after the investigation had taken place. Second, it’s part of this expansion of Title IX to cover areas it couldn’t conceivably cover.” This particular case highlights what can happen when the Dept. of Education’s OCR overly broad definition of sexual misconduct, which can encompass a range of constitutionally protected speech, comes with the threat of losing federal funding if they fail to thoroughly investigate all Title IX sexual misconduct claims. This case underscores the need for Title IX reform.

Eramo is seen reading some “mild” hate mail she received. “Dean of rape …God will have his day with you and hold you accountable” – “you’re a despicable human being,” Eramo is suing Rolling Stone and Erdely for the way she was portrayed in the article.

Lawsuits are accumulating across the nation brought by students who say they were unfairly disciplined for sexual misconduct by colleges and universities. And increasing numbers of judges are finding their complaints sufficiently valid to move forward. What makes the case so unusual, compared to others that have come before the courts and are public, is the sheer number of important procedural protections denied to the accused. In most cases, courts have found one or two things wrong, for example, inadequate access to witnesses or a failure of a school to adhere to the letter of its own written procedures...In this case, the OCR found virtually everything wrong and, therefore, a violation of Title IX’s protections against discrimination.

DoE said Wesley suspended the student the same day he was accused, and ended up never interviewing him during the course of the investigation. He was given “the wrong policies and procedures,” wrongly led to believe he could “participate in an initial conference,” and deprived of any information in the incident report before his hearing…Wesley has agreed to review its quickie suspensions of the four accused students to determine “whether it engaged in a sufficient level of inquiry,” and complete the investigations “in compliance with Title IX.”
