Farrer didn’t want to have sex with her. He had been taught in his ROTC program that “drunk people aren’t supposed to sleep together,” and while he didn’t think either was drunk, he wanted to play it safe. Zerfoss, “seemed fully cognizant,” she wasn’t slurring her words or fumbling, and she was insistent that they have sex. “She kept calling my name,” grabbing his hands and putting them on her body. When Farrer tried to spurn her advances by making small talk she rejected. “Eventually, I gave in.” The following week, Farrer was told that a female student had filed a sexual-assault allegation against him with the Title IX office. In spite of a police investigation that found “inconclusive evidence” and numerous inconsistencies in his accuser’s story, Farrer was still ruled responsible for sexual assault and expelled by Indiana University-Bloomington. “If you’re a male and you’re accused, you’re guilty until proven innocent,” Farrer said.

A University of North Carolina football player was falsely accused by Delaney Robinson last year. An attorney for Allen Artis the athlete, says the university’s Title IX compliance coordinator found no violation of the school’s sexual misconduct policy after conducting a thorough investigation.
San Diego State University violated “procedural fairness” by refusing to let a student accused of rape have an advocate “with the same or substantially similar skills, training and experience” as his accuser’s advocate. In essence, the accused was left to defend himself while his accuser was able to utilize the services of a “skillful, trained and experienced advocate,” the very person who investigated the case. The Court wonders how, given Petitioner’s youth, infant stages of his post-secondary education and the seriousness of the charges, Petitioner was able to conduct himself as well as he did. Judges have traditionally given schools wide latitude to fashion their own campus judicial systems, but colleges have abused their autonomy, and judges are starting to re-impose the rule of law.

A male Notre Dame student has filed a lawsuit in federal court. The plaintiff John Doe alleges school officials would not allow to be considered a recording of the accuser saying: “I want to f*** up [John’s] reputation; I want to make sure he never has a girlfriend…here or anywhere…and I want him never to be able to have a social life.” Doe’s lawsuit argues that officials at the Catholic university led an investigation rife with “procedural flaws, lack of due process, and inherent gender bias, designed to ensure that male students accused of any type of sexual misconduct or harassment are found responsible.”

College student Jake Goldberg discusses Title IX’s historical roots, and how the policy’s past intentions are different from its current application. Here is part one in a four part Title IX Tutorial series.
As the debate over campus sexual assaults continues more [TitleIX] accused male students have started taking their female accusers to court. Male students accused of [TitleIX] sexual misconduct have filed hundreds of lawsuits, charging that they were the victims of both false allegations and school procedures that failed to properly vet the claims. Frequently, heavy drinking is involved and college officials are sifting through case after case of what both parties frequently say started as a consensual act but then disagree over whether consent was withdrawn. “What’s troubling is that the (sex) act has become so casual, but the consequences [for the male student] can be so severe,” Attorney Sonya Pfeiffer.

Here is mattress girl Emma’s latest attempt for her 15 minutes of fame…Emma Sulkowicz has reportedly turned herself into a BDSM art exhibit. She chose “to have a white man tie me up.” The man proceeded to pull a rope out of a leather bag and began tying Sulkowicz up. He later began beating her. At one point, “Master Avery” reportedly asked the audience if anyone would like to join in.,“one man in the audience volunteered, walking up to Sulkowicz and slapping her hard across the face.”
Recently the American Association of University Women (AAUW) completed a review of the 2015 Clery data, which was compiled from all 11,000 college campuses across the nation. The title of the report highlights its most important finding: “89 Percent of Colleges Reported Zero Incidents of Rape in 2015.” The AAUW’s report states without qualification that at nearly nine out of 10 campuses, not a single rape was reported to campus officials. This stunning conclusion contradicts one of the main justifications for the Department of Education’s 2011 Dear Colleague Letter mandating that all allegations of sexual assault be heard by campus rape committees.
