Consent, Drinking, & Sex
If you hooked up, and she regrets it you will lose. College men must file a TIX complaint against the girl if you want to survive. Once accused, you lose. It’s about money and not your presumption of innocence.
A Title IX accused male is suing Miami University claiming “Miami was heavily invested in protecting female accusers even when there is no evidence of wrongdoing by males in order to avoid scrutiny from the (U.S.) Department of Education.” The case is the latest example of a growing legal pushback seen on some campuses nationally as men sue, and in some cases win. Some accused male students say they are wrongly presumed guilty by their universities and forced to prove their innocence -sometimes while suffering quick disciplinary actions prior to or during any college hearing process -in what they claim is a reversal of American criminal and civil law’s presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

The University of Cincinnati ignored evidence of innocence and unlawfully disciplined a male student who was accused of sexual assault in an encounter he said was consensual. “UC created an environment in which male students accused of sexual assault, such as Gischel, are fundamentally denied due process as to be virtually assured of a finding of guilt.” It adds that Gischel, was wrongly disciplined “for accepting [accuser] Schoewe’s offer to engage in sexual activity that Shoewe initiated and consented to, but apparently later regretted.” The lawsuit says [UC police detective who investigated the incident, and is himself being investigated for inappropriate relationships with women, including Schoewe, ] Richey and Schoewe “were conspiring to present false testimony against Gischel.”

A former student government leader at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg is accusing the school of wrongly expelling him over allegedly false accusations of sexual wrongdoing. John Doe told campus officials that Roe did not object to the sexual encounter, and she had continued contact through texting – and even had breakfast with him and friends the following morning – until he declined her request for a date and after she allegedly saw a social-media photo of him with another woman…Despite Doe’s claims of consensual sex, USF expelled Doe in May 2017, denying him a subsequent appeal. In the suit Doe concludes with a plea for his future, “I am 19 years and I stand before you literally fighting for my life. Please don’t end it before it even begins over allegations that are absolutely not true.”
How university and college administrations have dealt with campus sexual misconduct charges has become one of the most volatile issues in higher education, with many women saying higher education leaders have not taken their trauma seriously. But the Obama administration’s response sparked a backlash, not just from the accused and their families but from well-regarded law school professors who say new rules went too far.

‘Jane Roe’ initiated sexual activity with ‘John Doe’. Roe told Doe she had hooked up with men from other fraternities and she “repeatedly” affirmed she wanted to have sex with him. Roe brought Doe to climax with her hand, and put her phone number in his phone. But 10 days later she accused Doe claiming she didn’t remember much about that night and couldn’t have consented because of the “significant amount of alcohol” she consumed. Even though witnesses said Roe did not show signs of incapacitation, Doe should have known she was “incapacitated.” John Doe was found responsible for violating the school’s sexual violence policy and was suspended and physically blocked from campus for three years. According to the lawsuit, UC-Berkeley’s Title IX process is riddled with “structural error.”

“John Doe” filed a federal lawsuit earlier this month claiming Rider University kicked him out of school and “blindly accepted” a female classmate’s claims that he sexually assaulted her. While John was forced to sit at home, he was subjected to a Title IX disciplinary process that was unabashedly pro-complainant, refused to afford him any semblance of fundamental fairness, and considered him guilty until proven innocent.

It is impossible to overstate the growing weirdness of the college sex scene. Campus feminists are reimporting selective portions of a traditional sexual code that they have long scorned, in the name of ending what they preposterously call an epidemic of campus rape.

Drake University in Iowa has fired a trustee board member after expelling his disabled son, who alleged he was the victim of a rape by a female student. Both students filed complaints, but only the male was investigated. The son’s lawsuit alleges that both he and the female were intoxicated, and she initiated oral sex on him. It added that he wasn’t “in a state to be with her” and “not able to give consent that night.” Trustee Tom Rossley, who had been on Drake’s board for 23 years, accused the college of failing to accommodate his son’s “ADHD, anxiety, and language-based learning disabilities” and claimed that the female said “on the record” during a hearing that she indeed has initiated sex without the son’s consent. Rossley was told to stop complaining about the process and eventually was asked to step down from his position.

There is a growing trend of false accusations against men on college campuses helping to perpetuate the false narrative of the so-called “Rape Culture.“…the stats that are cited by the crowd clamoring about “Rape Culture” are completely false. The most comprehensive look at sexual assault comes from a Department of Justice study between 1995 and 2013. These numbers show that in fact the campus setting may not be the most dangerous place for women.
