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 following letter was sent to Stanford University’s Professor Michelle Dauber…”one aspect of your recent advocacy troubles us: the nascent campaign you have championed to recall Judge Aaron Persky, who sentenced Turner. We have deep reservations about the idea of a judge — any judge — being fired over sentencing decisions that the public perceives as too lenient.”..The letter was from 53 graduating Stanford Law students, representing nearly a third of the total class of 180 students.
At Sulkowicz’s alma mater, the administration reacted to affiliated activism by opening a second rape crisis center, instituting university-wide mandatory sexual respect workshops, and revisiting its judicial process to provide more resources for survivors – the activists’ “victories,” which seemed promising in theory, may have led to more harm than good in practice. 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.

Recent filings in a UC appeal of one of the most powerful opinions in favor of campus due process, by Judge Joel Pressman regarding a case at UC-San Diego, suggest that for accused students in the Cal system, their leadership believes that, in effect, they have no due process rights…The three big procedural issues were: access to exculpatory evidence, cross-examination, and the investigator’s role.

The Simpsons is perhaps the greatest educational tool…what I have grown to most appreciate about the show as an adult is its depressingly accurate portrayal of mob rule. I’ve been thinking about this because the online reaction to former Stanford athlete Brock Turner’s sentence for sexual assault is pretty much a Simpsons mob scene – deeply ignorant and utterly unaware of the terrifying precedent it’s setting.

A former University of Virginia School of Law student filed a federal lawsuit today challenging the Department of Education’s unlawful mandate that colleges abandon due process protections and try sexual misconduct cases using the lowest standard of evidence. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is sponsoring the lawsuit.
Here is the truth that the Left will never acknowledge- the hook-up culture they celebrate and defend is the greatest petri dish for enabling rape and sexual assault imaginable. It does women no favors to tell them that the way they drink is irrelevant.

Another day, another dubious study shared without critical thought throughout a media desperate to prove rape and sexism are everywhere. The survey, as with all other surveys purporting to show rampant rape among college students — especially athletes and fraternity members — had some limitations… It appears the researchers set out with an agenda, and designed a study to prove that agenda.

“I’m extremely upset, upset how those boys were treated,” Hendrix’s father, Jack, told the Statesman. “We feel their civil rights were violated, that they were interrogated, not given a chance to truly defend themselves. There are some promiscuous young ladies hiding behind Title IX, and there’s a vendetta against football by those investigators. There was no police investigation, or no repercussions for her actions.”
