Campus feminists whipped up a shrieking frenzy over sexual assault allegations at a Northwestern University fraternity in February. Their hysteria was based on anonymous phone calls. There were no actual victims, no witnesses and no physical evidence or electronic evidence or any other kind of evidence that any such an event involving any such women ingesting any such drugs or suffering any such sexual assaults ever occurred. Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin who helped promote the rape lie was forced to face the facts and said recently “no disciplinary action or further investigative action related to the reports of sexual misconduct will be taken at this time.” ..And instead of admitting the whole thing was a hoax, Northwestern is scouring the targeted fraternity for “other potential violations” of campus codes to justify putting them through hell in the first place.

As it left office last year, Obama’s administration made one final move in its crusade against campus due process: it requested a massive increase-$30.7 million, or 28.7 percent-in funding for OCR. To translate: OCR head Catherine Lhamon wanted to hire nearly 200 permanent employees, who would work under a true believer (Harvard’s ex-Title IX coordinator), because she had decided OCR would investigate not merely the complaints it received but thousands of other cases, even though no accuser had filed a Title IX complaint about any of these individual cases. On this matter, as on virtually all OCR-related matters during the Obama years, no sign of congressional oversight existed. It would be difficult to imagine a more wasteful use of federal funds.

It’s ironic. Pretty girls crying get what they want. Pretty boys crying do not get due process..A Senate committee killed HB51 that would change the way Georgia’s public universities investigate and punish allegations of sexual assault on campus. The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Earl Ehrhart, was unfazed by the vote, saying he would give him more time to work on the measure. “This is too serious an issue” to push it, Ehrhart said. “It’s not dead by any stretch of the imagination. The issue hasn’t gone away.”

“The main problem with affirmative consent policies is that they don’t match how people have sex in the real world, including on college campuses. They are a classic example of policies that sound good in theory but break down in practice.” If you point to any one thing and say that’s what made me think I had consent, you’re going to be found responsible for sexual misconduct. That’s because most sexual misconduct policies explicitly say that consent for one sexual act does not imply consent for another sexual act.

William Blackstone declared, “It is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer.” In 2011, the U.S. Department of Education took a different position. They decreed that Title IX sex tribunals should embrace a weaker “preponderance of the evidence” standard. So how high a risk of false conviction do the innocent face under the OCR’s Title IX guidance standards? UCLA Professor John Villasenor set out to answer that in a study that uses probability theory to model false Title IX convictions under the preponderance of the evidence standard. What he found should take all fair-minded Americans aback.

Over the last few years, we have become all but immune to what, under any other circumstances, would be a fantastic claim—that one in five female undergraduates will be victims of sexual assault. This rate would translate to several hundreds of thousands of violent crime victims (with almost all of the incidents unnoticed) annually, and implies that about the same percentage of female college students are sexually assaulted as women in the Congo where rape was used as a war crime in the nation’s civil war…Even within this environment of pie-in-the-sky statistics, a recent survey from Duke stands out.

Tufts Community Union Senate voted down Student’s Advocating for Students resolution “Requesting Fair and Protective Title IX Procedures.” Twenty-five student Senators voted against fair and protective Title IX procedures, and no Senators voted in favor of these procedures. The hearing prior to the final vote was a shocking yet accurate display of Tufts University’s egregious campus culture…Senators directly defended allowing victims of sexual misconduct to determine Title IX sexual misconduct cases- violating Tufts’ obligation to provide impartial Title IX proceedings.

An incoming freshman at UC Santa Barbara is suing the university to remove a suspension that has barred him from attending the school since August. “Even though my client has never been charged by UCSB with any violation of University rules, he sits out of school and it is now clear he will miss the entire school year unless a court ultimately intervenes,” Doe’s lawyer, Robert P. Ottilie said.

A wave of bills dealing with campus sexual assault are moving through state legislatures, and many of them would codify elements of contentious federal guidelines that deprive accused students of due process rights. The measures would make it easier for accusations to result in expulsions and the permanent branding of students who may be innocent, without allowing them a chance to defend themselves. Some of the bills would expand the definition of sexual assault by narrowing the definition of consent to the point where nearly any sexual encounter could be considered non-consensual.
There are clearly some women out there who are deeply confused about what it means to be raped, and they are, in many cases, being misled by the adults around them. As documented in “The Campus Rape Frenzy,” the Title IX coordinators encourage young, impressionable women to call every incident of regrettable drunken sex “rape.” These days, the reasons for falsely claiming rape have much more to do with the campus soap opera and the sexual politics of one’s peer group… When you decide to ruin a man’s life and reputation in order to cover up your own mistakes or get what you want from others, you’re not a victim-you’re a sociopath.
