In spite of complaints by female and male students about the prevalence of sexual attacks by fellow students on college campuses, the administrations continue to pretend it is not a problem.

(Excerpt) Read more at examiner.com ...


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: college; rape; sexualassault; sexualattacks
Among the women who have had the courage to file complaints about how sexual assault—rape—is being handled are at Swarthmore, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dartmouth, Yale and UC Berkeley. Actually only 5 percent of college women who have been raped report it to the police.

Interesting that you only post your own Examiner stuff and never make a comment:

And yet college administrations want men and women living in the same dorm building. INSANE!

Be interesting to see what % of all college campus rapes are committed by members of the football and basketball teams and the race of the perpetrators....

Filled with erroneous statistics
and impossible claims;

and furthering the goal of demonizing
the one-half of the human race that happens
to be male

(”We’re all rapists...!”)

However. Since Mumblebumbler is a shill for the New York Times and other liberal media, fewer and fewer Freepers give a crap what mumbles posts.

I live not far from the University of Michigan and from what I see in the local news, liberalism is a major factor.

First they scream that police aren’t doing enough to protect them. Then police simply point out that they can’t protect everyone and offer common sense solutions to remain safe like not being black out drunk and wandering the streets at 2 AM. This is met with screams of misogyny. Police then suggest that maybe a personal firearm would offer the protection they seek and the same idiots then go ballistic over the armed society. Finally it devolves to the old “Boys should be taught to not rape” argument.

Liberals create their own unsustainable little worlds that they themselves can’t live in but its all somebody else’s fault.

I don’t understand calling the campus police for a rape. Call the real police, file charges, and check with them daily to track their progress. If it’s a forcible rape, fight back hard enough to leave marks on the attacker or at least to compel him to leave marks on you (evidence matters!). If it’s some variant of Rohypnol/GHB,Ketamine, etc. get tested as soon as possible to prove that you were drugged and incapable of giving consent (evidence matters!). If it was consensual and you changed your mind later, do not file a false report - the frequent false claims make real victims less believable and make rape a safer crime for the predators. Campus police are there for the minor offenses associated with high spirits and immaturity, and for the property crimes that come with inattention to that risk; they are not trained to deal with terrorist mass murderers (RIP, Officer Sean Collier) or with rapists.

The hard part is distinguishing between a forcible rape and a change of mind the next morning. It’s a tough law enforcement question, one for which I do not know the answer, but I would not expect the Campus Police to be the best law enforcement organization for dealing with that challenge. Note: I was a juror in a rape case, and I voted with eleven others to send that evil predator away for a long time. I’m grateful to the victim for making the case easy to prove - brave girl.

My favorite bit of liberal idiocy is “Boys should be taught to not rape”.

I personally don’t remember that conversation with my parents but I was raised with a reasonable set of morals in a world where not everything was a moral free for all.

So far nearly 50 years without raping anyone. Please pray that I can keep myself under control.

Are we discussing Rape-Rape, or false claims of Rape? It seems that most claims of rape turn out to be hoaxes.

I wonder how many of these so-called "rapes" are actually morning-after blues, and how many innocent mens' lives have been ruined by women who consent to sex, have regrets, then, at the urging of their feminazi man-hater sistuhs accuse the guy of assault.

Rape used to be a hard crime to prove. And for a very good reason.

None of which is intended to deny that rapes happen, or to excuse the offender ... where the rape is REAL, and not just a convenient fiction to absolve a woman who lost control.

Campus police have jurisdiction. The real police wint respond.

Its about crime stats and keeping them low for recruitment.

Swarthmore College Faces A Federal Investigation For Allegedly Mishandling Rape Cases On Campus

Yet they want to "slutwalk" with pride. "We will shove our sexuality in your face, but if you respond, woe unto you." Act like a soul-less sex object, get treated like one.

There used to be a word for girls who flaunt themselves sexually then say "no." A tease. Rape is not a funny subject, but there are things girls can do to protect themselves. I can saunter down the streets of downtown Oakland at night with $100 bills hanging out of my pockets, but I shouldn't be surprised if I get robbed or worse. The robber is still the criminal, but I was stupid for being in that position.

One in four college women are victims of rape or attempted rape.
One in seven college men are victims of sexual assault.

BULLCRAP!
Where are you getting this?

Wow, are you taking this article seriously? Do the supposed male victims "slutwalk" too?

Think before you post.

Good for you... but sadly, we no longer live in such a world.

Those were the times of curfews and chaperones and in loco parentis. We have lost so much since then. Most young people (this includes graduate students who may be still vulnerable to all kinds of silliness) could still benefit from the wisdom of responsible adults.

I don't know if the Greek letter societies warn new and current members about the dangers of alcohol and its effect on inhibitions.

Take a little initiative.

The first amendment has absolutely zero bearing on my objection to bloggers using FR to advertise their writing for free.

Are you aware that the FCC allows television stations to air PSA’s (public service announcements) for free, and that your taxes have been supporting this activity for your entire lifetime? Naturally, many of these end up being politically motivated. It’s a whole new area for you to think about humbly gunning.
