Feminist academic Christina Hoff Sommers is attracting attention for speaking out against untruths in the gender equality debate. She is the star of hit YouTube series The Factual Feminist, which doesn’t just stick up for men, but also calls-out the sisterhood on false stats, cruel comments and double-standards.

There’s ‘classical’ feminism, and then there’s extreme feminism
The resident assistants are instructed to not be selective about what information they report to the authorities. They are to pass along to superiors anything they see or hear that could potentially run afoul of the growing web of sexual harassment rules and regulations: RAs should be ‘funnels of information’ said a Title IX bureaucrat. But at what cost? Stalin’s police state helped him apprehend criminals more easily than America’s liberal system, too. This is not good training for life in a free society.
When I tell people that crazy things are happening on University Campuses, I’m told by my peers and former friends that I am crazy and that I am the problem. Historically, this is the kind of thing that happened to people like MLK or Harvey Milk. In 2013 the Anti-Social Justice Warrior and the Anti-PC group were under the radar screen. In 2014 they were on the radar screen and got called the “crazies”. In 2015 they didn’t go away – and the only solution on social media is to delete comments – which Social Justice Warriors and Feminists have started to do. Because when you say, “All men are potential rapists,” and you find out women rape, too; when you say, “Men do domestic violence,” and you find out Lesbians have the highest rates of domestic violence, this is what happens.

The sexual misconduct policy was amended this semester to specifically prohibit students and advisers from copying documents from the adjudication or investigative processes. “Copying” not only includes audio recording, photographs and scanning, but also “transcribing” – suggesting that students aren’t allowed to even take notes. FIRE’s guide says the “absence of a record makes both appeals and lawsuits against the university for wrongful actions far more difficult.”

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. “I have male friends who want consent and sobriety written in writing before any physical intimacy, and they’re getting laughed at by their female companions.”…”In a sense, it’s annoying and debilitating to be constantly questioned about whether or not I have agency and am a sexual human being.”

Twenty-first century America does not have a rape culture; what we have is an out-of-control lobby leading the public and our educational and political leaders down the wrong path. Rape-culture theory is doing little to help victims, but its power to poison the minds of young women and lead to hostile environments for innocent males is immense.

Some institutions have security fees to support campus police and security departments, as well as student health fees…But a college’s Title IX office is an administrative department whose existence is mandated by the U.S. Department of Education, and few — if any — rely on student fees.

Victim-centered investigations are based on the premise of believing the accuser’s story before the gathering of evidence occurs and to always believe the accuser. Victim-centered investigations emphasize the collection of corroborative evidence supporting the accuser and discourage the collection of exculpatory evidence. Victim-centered investigations represent a departure from ethical standards of investigative impartiality, neutrality, and objectivity, thus removing the presumption of innocence from the accused. It is “an attempt to railroad accused [college] students while looking impartial.”
California is becoming unsafe for college males. California’s college climate of pro-accusation and anti-due process Title IX directives, coupled with California’s new laws set the stage for innocent males doing hard prison time. College males please do not ever apply to a California college. Your future depends on it.

The Obama administration expects colleges to massively meddle in students’ romantic lives, even off campus, by pressuring colleges to vastly increase their regulation of students’ sex lives, and demanding investigations students don’t want. Even if you liked being kissed, a college may deem it sexual assault if there was no explicit discussion beforehand to establish the existence of “affirmative consent…enthusiasm is a requirement of consent itself—anything less than enthusiasm is sexual assault.” There is also talk of enacting “affirmative consent” as a national requirement for not just students but all citizens.
