Consent, Drinking, & Sex
If you hooked up, and she regrets it you lose. It’s about money and not your presumption of innocence. Get a lawyer fast.
A society that treats women like they lose something from sexual activity is going to find women defending themselves from that alleged loss by any means: including falsely claiming that sexual activity was neither wanted nor consented to.

Absent from this poll and any of the Post’s follow up articles was any mention of the increasing number of lawsuits being filed by students who have been expelled after what they say was a wrongful conviction.

At campus hearings on claims of sexual assault, procedures are relentlessly stacked again males and evidence of innocence doesn’t count.

Jones: “Ohmygod, I jus[sic] did something so [expletive] stupid.” Counselor: “What did you do?” Jones responded that she had sex with Doe. Then she expressed concern that her roommate would find out…The counselor’s recommendation was to blame Doe for the encounter.
It’s a story that demonstrates how deeply the filmmakers’ politics colored their presentation of the facts—and how deeply flawed their influential film is as a result.

Since she admittedly gave consent without coercion or threat, clearly a new term would need to be introduced in order to make her a victim…the birth of “raped by rape culture.” In addition to insulting rape victims everywhere, such a claim introduces a very scary mindset: that if you happen to be a woman, you are incapable of saying yes and meaning it.

The connection between alcohol and sexual assault is not necessarily what is controversial, but how to advise college students—both men and women—can be deeply polarizing.

A University in Ohio has settled a lawsuit with a former student who sued after being expelled over a sexual assault allegation. A freshman female student accused a male student of assaulting her on the way home from a party where alcohol was served. The male was expelled following a November student disciplinary hearing. The falsely accused student filed a lawsuit the following month, alleging libel, defamation, negligence and infliction of emotional distress, among other things, and said he was illegally prohibited from using an attorney and presenting evidence or testimony.
The University’s vice president for student development, said via email that she “cannot confirm that a settlement has been reached, but we can confirm that the case has been dismissed in the courts.” Asked to clarify, she emailed, “The matter was resolved by mutual agreement and together we sought dismissal by the court.” The falsely accused’s attorney, Eric Rosenberg, said via phone that there was a settlement but the case is officially recorded as dismissed because of semantics.
Rosenberg’s case was one of a growing number of lawsuits filed by men who are punished following campus judicial proceedings, in some cases under Title IX, the same federal statute that women point to when alleging campuses handle their sexual assault allegations improperly. Rosenberg told the student newspaper, “I’d like to convey to students the risk of being involved with women who have been drinking…. because later she may say she was sexually assaulted.”
