Rape Culture Plagues US

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:22 am

U.S. colleges under investigation for sexual violence

The US Department of Education press release 1st May: (see here)

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released today a list of the higher education institutions under investigation for possible violations of federal law over the handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints.

The names of 55 colleges across 28 states to be be investigated have been made public in a move that the agency expects

‘will bring more transparency to our enforcement work and foster better public awareness of civil rights’

Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine E. Lhamon said,
“We hope this increased transparency will spur community dialogue about this important issue.”

This is a politically motivated campaign from the Obama Administration in which they say they are

committed to putting an end to sexual violence—particularly on college campuses. That’s why the President established the Task Force earlier this year with a mandate to strengthen federal enforcement efforts and provide schools with additional tools to combat sexual assault on their campuses.

and obviously intended to establish a punitive regime to enforce institutional compliance;

Schools that violate the law and refuse to address the problems identified by OCR can lose federal funding or be referred to the U.S. Department of Justice for further action.

This article US examines its Boy Crisis recently posted on Menz gives the impression that the US is recovering from Feminist Indoctrination; this is obviously not the case.

    Yes, much more important for schools to harass boys and young men about females’ feelings of offendedness than to address high levels of male worthlessness and social alienation leading to such trivial problems as mass shootings at schools and huge male suicide rates.

    The behavioural expectations by women of young men around courtship and sex are confused, inconsistent and hypocritical. It’s fine for women to pass comments to a male’s ‘nice buns’ and call him ‘hot’, to use physical and behavioural deceit in order to attract guys, to lead guys on with falsehoods concerning intentions and to play the field (“You don’t own me”), and if a man complains about any of this he is ‘controlling’. But men behaving that way are sleazeballs and exploiters, and when a woman complains she is a victim of sexual harassment and he an offender.

    British newspaper The Guardian looks to interview individual students in the US, story here.

    We want to hear from students who can tell us about their experiences with their universities after a sexual assault on campus – especially if they’re on one of the 55 campuses called out by the education department.
