Feminist have launched a national campaign of harassment and intimidation toward male college students.
At Columbia University, feminists wrote the names of four male students at various locations across the campus claiming they were rapists. However, none of the students had been found guilty of anything. The only known fact about any of their cases is that a complaint was filed against one of the men 5 months after the incident.
New York's feminist Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, wants more legislation against colleges' alleged rape culture. She stated "The price [for women] of a college education should not include a 1 in 5 chance of being sexually assaulted." She claimed schools have "become havens for rape and sexual assault". "These are not cases of dates gone badly, of a misunderstanding about whether she said yes or no, these are actually brutal crimes committed by recidivists and predators". Falsely claiming thousands of women are being raped means thousands of men are rapists. Gillibrand is hoping to create new legislation making it easier for schools to expel large numbers of accused men.
Sandra Fluke, a feminist California State Senate candidate, repeated Gillibrand's fraudulent clam of 1 in 5 female undergraduates being sexually assaulted. She stated "One in five women will survive a rape or attempted rape by the time she graduates college. That means of the approximately 966,000 women at the bachelor's degree level who will graduate this year, 193,200 will be survivors of rape or attempted rape while in college". Fluke demanded female undergraduates be given "rape shield statutes to protect assault survivors from character assassination". Her proposal means that in any campus incidents women will remain anonymous while men will be named. This includes
incidents of false rape.
In a TIME Magazine article, Nancy Chi Cantalupo, feminist professor at Georgetown Law, argued that accused students rights can be ignored because "schools face exponentially more expensive liability for violating student victims rights under Title IX than they do for violating accused assailants due process rights". She stated the largest award given to a falsely accused male undergraduate was only $26,500 compared with $2.8 million awarded a women.
Feminist Amanda Childress, Sexual Assault Awareness Program coordinator at Dartmouth College stated "Why could we not expel a student based on an allegation? "It seems to me that we value fair and equitable processes more than we value the safety of our students." Thus, the Dartmouth Coordinator wants men expelled on mere accusations. This same school has also created a Bystander Initiative program which demands pupils, faculty and staff intervene against men at the first signs of dating trouble. Dartmouth is creating a type of feminist police state.
Lastly, TIME magazine's recent large article titled 'The Sexual Assault Crisis on American Campuses' emphasized campus sexual assault rules are applied only against men. Women cannot be rapists. In fairness, the author also implored only about 6% of male undergraduates are rapists. She said most men are good. Nonetheless, emphasizing rape laws be applied only against men gives feminist opportunities to manipulate sexual assault rules without impacting female students. Manipulating rules will allow for the expulsion of increasing numbers of men from college. Thus, 6% can easily be changed to 20% or even 40% of male undergraduates are rapists. An example of this double standard occurred in the Ohio State University false rape incident. A video was posted of two drunk undergraduates having sex. Feminists publicly demanded the man be expelled because, under current campus guidelines, a drunk women cannot give sexual consent. However, the man was was also drunk. Yet the woman was not deemed a rapist. Sexual assault guidelines were applied only toward the man.
Across America, feminist are advocating a hostile campus environment for male university students. These women are creating rules allowing for the easy expulsion of men on bogus charges. Feminist are attempting to limit the number of men earning degrees.
The impetus for this limitation is a 2010 study by the research firm Reach Advisors. The study discovered single women aged 22-30 outearn their male counterparts in most American cities. Reach Advisors cited college education as the main reason for the gender pay gap. Significantly more women than men earn degrees. By altering campus rules, feminist hope thousands of male undergraduates can be prevented from obtaining degrees. Less men with degrees means more high paying skilled jobs go to educated women.
Curtailing mens' economic opportunities while simultaneously advancing women is the campaign's major goal. If feminists wanted equality, they would have advocated fairness for all students. Instead, these women are intentionally creating a hostile learning environment for men.
