Rape Culture is a ‘Panic Where Paranoia,
Censorship, and False Accusations Flourish’

TIME, by Christina Hoff Sommers

Original Article

Posted By:emilyj, 5/15/2014 9:32:00 AM

On January 27, 2010, University of North Dakota officials charged undergraduate Caleb Warner with sexually assaulting a fellow student. He insisted the encounter was consensual, but was found guilty by a campus tribunal and thereupon expelled and banned from campus.A few months later, Warner received surprising news. The local police had determined not only that Warner was innocent, but that the alleged victim had deliberately falsified her charges. She was charged with lying to police for filing a false report, and fled the state.

James Taranto has commented extensively about this problem. False or remorse-driven claims of rape on college campuses lead to ruination of lives.

I seem to remember a few years back, when the ´women´ on a college campus listed the names of all the male students as rapists. There was no indignation, but I always wondered what would have happened had the male students listed all the females as future whores!

I know it´s radical, but young women can protect themselves to a large degree. Don´t go to a guy´s dorm room, don´t get stupid drunk at a frat party, don´t hook up with guys you barely know. And guys don´t hop into bed with women you hardly know---all things your mama taught you.

IMHO, the rash of false accusations are going to ultimately backfire and true sexual assault cases will be dismissed. There are predators out there, anywhere from a school campus to a workplace to a neighborhood. Sadly, sometimes within a family circle. And the truth is often victim to an agenda.

Consider the ´´anti lesbian´´ crime wave - so many of which were false accusations and ultimately proven to have been perpetrated by the ´´victim´´; there is purpose behind fables and fairy tales. The Boy Who Cried Wolf comes to mind...

If Pro-Lifers ever succeed in the push for abortion to be outlawed except if the woman was raped, we can anticipate a huge spike in rape accusations by women who want to abort and need that excuse. What happened to Caleb Warner will become commonplace.

I read a recounting of what a young man experienced after being falsely accused of rape -- when no sex even occurred -- and it was heartbreaking. He was front page news in the campus newspaper, his name used so any future employer can Google him and find an extremely slanted article that declared him guilty on the girl´s say-so. Hysterics demonstrated at his home, threw bricks threw his window, threatened him. He considered suicide but that would just make it seem like he had a guilty conscience so he continued to fight to clear his name.

Ultimately he was proven innocent, but the harassment continued. The newspaper didn´t print any kind of correction or update on their big story to s how he actually wasn´t a rapist at all -- he had to fight to get even that tiny bit of fairness in the end.

If you have a son checking out colleges, be sure to look at their sexual assault procedures before you throw him to the wolves. It could ruin his life if the wrong girl decides to target him.

I firmly believe that if someone is guilty of filing a false claim of rape or child molestation (often done hateful wives) then they should serve the same term that the alleged perp would have served.

Put a few of these greedy women in prison for 25 years (the penalty in many States) you will see the false accusations plummet and leave room for true and factual cases to be prosecuted.

I lost a home, two jobs, and $25,000, over a false accusation. The jury saw through the lies and manipulations and acquitted me. What did she get? NOTHING, no charges of filing a false report, no jail time, no reimbursement of my expenses, NOTHING.

Thank you dumb, ignorant, stupid Prosecutors and Detectives. Makes you wonder what they got for being that way.

That sounds about right, #9. I never trusted Mo to begin with, so I´m not surprised to hear that his rape reports are fake.

Title lX: How a Good Law
Went Terribly Wrong
Time Magazine, by Christina Hoff Sommers    Original Article

A weary wrestling coach once lamented that his sport had survived the Fall of Rome, only to be vanquished by Title IX. How did an honorable equity law turn into a scorched-earth campaign against men’s sports? This week is the 42nd anniversary of this famous piece of federal legislation so it’s an ideal time to consider what went wrong and how to set it right. Title IX was signed into law by President Nixon on June 23, 1972. In 37 momentous words, it outlawed gender discrimination in all publicly supported educational programs.

Overreaching on Campus Rape
National Review, by Caroline Kitchens    Original Article

Jezebel’s Erin Gloria Ryan recently declared, “Being terrible about rape appears as endemic to American high education as barfing on the quad.” Ryan had just heard the news that 55 American universities are facing federal Title IX investigations for possibly mishandling cases of sexual misconduct. Jezebel seems to think that the Department of Education (DOE) investigations are evidence of a sexual-assault epidemic and insidious “rape culture” plaguing our college campuses. Actually, the investigations show no such thing.

It’s Time to End ‘Rape Culture’ Hysteria

“Rape is as American as apple pie,” says blogger Jessica Valenti. She and her sisters-in-arms describe our society as a “rape culture” where violence against women is so normal, it’s almost invisible. Films, magazines, fashion, books, music, humor, even Barbie — according to the activists — cooperate in conveying the message that women are there to be used, abused, and exploited. Recently, rape culture theory has migrated from the lonely corners of the feminist blogosphere into the mainstream.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
