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.

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.
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.

“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 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.

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.
