I am a feminist. I have marched at the barricades…Until a month ago, I would have expressed unqualified support for Title IX…But that was before .. a text of desperation. “CALL ME. URGENT. NOW.”
Americans have been living through an enormously sensationalized college rape hoax, but as the evidence accumulates it’s becoming clear that the entire thing was just a bunch of media hype and political opportunism.

In April 2013, former University of Florida student Tanya Borachi lied to police about getting bound and gagged in a Gainesville apartment complex parking lot. At Princeton University student Mindy Brickman falsely accused a fellow Princeton student of raping her. In April 2013, University of Wyoming student Meg Lanker-Simons, then 28, anonymously posted a rape threat directed at herself on a Facebook page called UW Crushes.
“I am a feminist, for whatever that’s worth. I am a person who is outraged by any act of violence. But I also support the American presumption that a person is innocent until proven guilty.”

…new federal numbers show the risk on campuses is still lower than it is for non-students. And the report casts some doubt on a statistic we’ve heard a lot – that 1 in 5 college students are raped or sexually assaulted.
Southern Methodist University violated Title IX when it failed to provide a “prompt and equitable response” to the alleged sexual assault of a male student by another male student in 2012, the U.S. Department of Education announced Thursday.

A new report on sexual assault released today by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) officially puts to bed the bogus statistic that one in five women on college campuses are victims of sexual assault. In fact, non-students are 25 percent more likely to be victims of sexual assault than students, according to the data. And the real number of assault victims is several orders of magnitude lower than one-in-five.

On this issue, I have to side with the amoral hedonists of Reason. We could also reduce premarital sex by banning women from appearing in public without a male chaperone, and stoning them to death if they engage in sex outside of marriage. Most people would correctly describe such rules as misogynistic. Why on earth would we support a system which makes men solely responsible for maintaining “sexual decorum?
