College Men: Don’t apply here
Occidental, UVA, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Harvard, University of Oregon, USC, SMU, UNC, the State of New York, Illinois, Virginia, Minnesota, California and Connecticut. These colleges and states have passed policies and laws that are extremely biased against males. As anti-due process continues, this list increases. Men are preferring Canadian colleges over American colleges. It’s worth your good name, innocence and a successful future for you to go elsewhere.
The student, known only in his court case as John Doe, had not been “convicted” of anything, but rather held “responsible” for sexual misconduct by a university tribunal, a finding that the judge vacated last week while blasting the email campaign…”having read a few of the emails, it is abundantly clear that the writers, while passionate, were woefully ignorant about the issues before the Court.” The court found other flaws in the process as well, including the university’s failure to allow the man to introduce evidence that he believed was exculpatory.

A University of Cincinnati graduate student, will be allowed to resume classes this spring after a federal judge’s decision rescinded a one-year suspension imposed by the university. The male graduate student alleged the university violated due process and Title IX in how it handled the investigation and ruling of the case against him. The student’s lawyer, Josh Engel, said the key to Judge Michael Barrett’s decision is “the recognition that students in this situation have a right to confront their accuser.”

Two college football players who were suspended from their team last year and saw their scholarships revoked after rape accusations have been cleared by police after authorities say their accuser recanted her story…“She admitted that she made up the allegation of sexual assault against (the football players) because it was the first thing that came to mind and she didn’t want to lose (another male student) as a friend and potential boyfriend. She stated that she believed when (the other male student) heard the allegation it would make him angry and sympathetic to her,” according to the affidavit.

Denison University settled a lawsuit with a former student who sued after being expelled over a sexual assault allegation. A female student who was drinking accused a freshman of assaulting her. According to the young man he walked her home safely, and according to SOS, his Good Samaritan actions got him falsely accused by an embarrassed young girl who was drunk. The young male was expelled following a student disciplinary hearing. The falsely accused male filed suit alleging libel, defamation, negligence and infliction of emotional distress, among other things, and said he was illegally prohibited from using an attorney and presenting evidence or testimony of his innocence.
Denison’s vice president for student development, said that she “cannot confirm that a settlement has been reached, but we can confirm that the case has been dismissed in the courts.” Clarifying, she stated, “The matter was resolved by mutual agreement and together we sought dismissal by the court.”
The falsely accused’s attorney, Eric Rosenberg, said there was a settlement but the case is officially recorded as dismissed because of semantics.
Eric Rosenberg has a growing number of lawsuits filed by young college males who are expelled following campus judicial proceedings. “I’d like to convey to students the risk of being involved with women who have been drinking…. because later she may say she was sexually assaulted.”
Ohio University realized that the survey it conducted on “sexual misconduct victimization” was full of problems – yet it released the results anyway. Measuring campus sexual assault is one of the great objectives in higher education, yet survey instruments tend to produce more heat than light. Clearly this survey had such a low participation rate that any result will be suspect.

After a college football coach dared to stand up for 10 black players’ legal rights, a mob of at least 3,000 has petitioned for the University of Minnesota’s president and athletic director to fire him. Such is today’s campus witch-hunt culture. Coach Tracy Claeys committed the heresy of questioning whether UMinn’s Title IX adjudication denied his players due process, and supposedly enlightened liberal activists now want him charred at the stake for it.

Farrer didn’t want to have sex with her. He had been taught in his ROTC program that “drunk people aren’t supposed to sleep together,” and while he didn’t think either was drunk, he wanted to play it safe. Zerfoss, “seemed fully cognizant,” she wasn’t slurring her words or fumbling, and she was insistent that they have sex. “She kept calling my name,” grabbing his hands and putting them on her body. When Farrer tried to spurn her advances by making small talk she rejected. “Eventually, I gave in.” The following week, Farrer was told that a female student had filed a sexual-assault allegation against him with the Title IX office. In spite of a police investigation that found “inconclusive evidence” and numerous inconsistencies in his accuser’s story, Farrer was still ruled responsible for sexual assault and expelled by Indiana University-Bloomington. “If you’re a male and you’re accused, you’re guilty until proven innocent,” Farrer said.
