GOOD NEWS: A Catholic college in Boston is standing by its investigation into rape allegations that found the evidence was overwhelmingly in favor of the purported rapist…Accuser Vandyke freely admits she went to the unnamed male’s room that night – they met on Tinder – but says she was already very drunk and unable to consent. They smoked a bong together and had sex. The accuser “was motioning at his genitals and grabbing them,” thus obviating the need to have a conversation about consent.
Drinking & Sex
If you hooked up, and she regrets it you will lose. College men file a complaint against the girl. It’s your future to save. Your college will throw you to the wolves. It’s about federal funding and not your innocence.
The suit alleges CU-Boulder violated Title IX through a process that was rigged against Doe as a man from the start. He says his due process rights also were violated, owing to the “single investigator model” in which Tracy-Martinez (adjudicator) ran the entire investigation, determined responsibility and issued a “corresponding finding,” without any opportunity for Doe to appeal: The university’s code does not provide for a hearing on the charges, and the respondent is denied an opportunity to confront his accuser, question any witnesses against him and present his defense before an impartial decision maker.

Until now schools ignored the question of what an accused student could have known at the time of an alleged assault…lessons are learned the hard way when accusations are flying at college campuses, and drunken hookups are redefined as rape. Men and women are now distrustful of each other, as women are being encouraged to drink while simultaneously being warned they will be preyed upon. Men are being taught that any sexual activity with a woman could become an accusation of sexual assault.

At an off-campus residence where athletes lived, there were cups of a potent liquor and crowds of sloshed students. An alluring, petite blonde led him into an upstairs bathroom for sex…For both students, the night had not gone as planned. Their brief alcohol-drenched, party-fueled interaction — not unlike so many others on the nation’s college campuses — would derail both of their lives for much of an academic year and probably beyond.

At Washington State University, two college kids had drunk sex. The staff find out. Boy files a complaint against girl for rape after Title IX office encourages him. In typical Kafkaesque fashion, the girl (perpetrator) has no due process rights and is swiftly expelled…Unconstitutional Title IX systems force schools to play detective, judge and jury and find a culprit and a victim. Then the culprit must be punished, often with devastating consequences, while the victim is absolved of all accountability.

You are taught that girls are your equals in every way… What our present day culture teaches you about equality and sexual liberation is a dangerous trap. Although you will be told that men and women enjoy no-strings-attached casual sex equally, this is simply untrue. Many college women will regret a drunken hookup and will blame you for whatever happened. No matter how kind and decent, how talented and giving a person you have always been, there will be no mercy for you.

“I was brought forth as a witness at first and now I am being charged”…Kevin got an email from the Title IX office. “They said, you don’t really need an attorney. You didn’t do anything wrong. We are just concerned about what happened to this other person”…Kevin was called in for a second meeting, and the focus was on him. Five months later the Title IX office issued a sex complaint against Kevin. “They said I could call witnesses but I was brought forth as a witness at first and now I am being charged. All these guys wanted no part of coming forward to help me because they were afraid the same thing would happen to them that happened to me.”

Joe Rogan and Occidental Assistant Professor Thaddeus Russell discuss false rape accusations, rape culture and feminism.
Someone anonymously filed a sexual assault complaint. Student A and John Doe never considered what happened to be sexual misconduct. They both admitted to drinking and they both engaged in sexual intercourse. Someone else decided that all drunken sex is rape. In that moment, the person filing the complaint changed other people’s life courses to serve their agendas and beliefs over those of the two individuals involved. John Doe was immediately suspended from campus, he lost his scholarship…

“Maybe I said ‘yes,’ I don’t know. I was extremely intoxicated,” she concluded. (The due-process lawsuit notes that the report casts doubt on her level of intoxication, citing surveillance video that shows her “walking and … smiling,” balancing on one foot and “laughing” as she returned to her dorm that night.) The accuser felt ambivalence about the incident and was pressured into accusing him by friends and family.
