Campus Rape Policies Get a New Look
« on: July 24, 2017, 03:08:23 PM »
"WASHINGTON The letters have come in to her office by the hundreds, heartfelt missives from college students, mostly men, who had been accused of rape or sexual assault. Some had lost scholarships. Some had been expelled. A mother stumbled upon her son trying to take his own life, recalled Candice E. Jackson, the top civil rights official at the Department of Education....

" 'Rather, the accusations 90 percent of them fall into the category of we were both drunk, we broke up, and six months later I found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided that our last sleeping together was not quite right,' Ms. Jackson said....

"Under pressure from the Obama administration, many universities overhauled their procedures for investigating sexual assault....

"The most controversial part of the 2011 guidance mandated that college officials use a 'preponderance of the evidence' standard, which makes it easier to find students responsible than a 'clear and convincing' evidence standard that some schools had been using."

The Obama administration wanted to make it easier for male students accused of rape to be convicted. A preponderance of evidence standard means that if 51% of the evidence indicates that a sexual encounter was non-consensual then the accused is guilty. But that's not the usual standard in criminal cases.

I'd be taking a course by distance learning these days. Being a white male has become unsafe, especially after BS movies like the Hunting Ground.

Malicious false accusations of rape need to be taken a lot more seriously. Women's groups will insist that prosecution of false accusers would prevent genuine victims reporting their attacker. However, it doesn't seem logical to say that an innocent man's life should be destroyed with impunity just because it might allow a guilty man to walk free.

The major long term impact on quality of life caused by rape is well reflected in criminal justice systems in America. It's about time the major long term impact on quality of life caused by false accusations is reflected too.

Blame it on the victim. She just didn't recognize your obvious charms.

As for devoslution:
Quote
DeVos has been an advocate for the Detroit charter school system. Douglas N. Harris, professor of economics at Tulane University, wrote in a 2016 New York Times op-ed that DeVos was partly responsible for "what even charter advocates acknowledge is the biggest school reform disaster in the country". In the National Assessment of Educational Progress, Detroit had the lowest reading and mathematics scores "by far" over any city participating in the evaluation. According to Harris, she designed a system with no oversight in which schools that do poorly can continue to enroll students.

She? The victims we're talking about here are men who were wrongly accused of rape after having consensual sex with adult women who later decided to maliciously ruin the man's life.

Of course, women can do no wrong these days. Even when they do. If feminism is all about equality, how about admitting that women can be evil just as men can be?
