The Secret War on Men?

  • Check out “The Hunt” with Mads Mikkelsen. The scene is not campus but kindergarten. But it’s the same bitter poison of false accusation and ill will towards the accused man. http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt2106476/

    To ease this tense atmosphere, 1) take all sexual accusations to court, 2) loudly call false accusers on their [explicit].

    But as long as students keep the officials out of their private matters, they can happily live in sin and enjoy life 🙂

    What does this deeper commitment to moral leadership and development look like (and where does it begin as well as receive reinforcement)? See Adam Garfinkle’s Hey You’re Truly Unlimited: Didn’t You Know? Adam writes about reciprocal standards and expectations.

    Anyone thought about draining the toxic swamp, by pushing for standards of behavior that were successfully held in place for centuries?

    • No way man. The hookup culture is to be encouraged by the Sandra Flukes of the world. They worship it.

      • Jim Luebke

        You know, calling them “people who participate in the hookup culture” is kind of cumbersome.

        We should just call them “hookers” for short.

    Students should simply boycott the schools that practice this drivel.

    The “Kangaroo Courts” she refers to are the result of new university regulations pushed by the United States Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in 2011

    The “Kangaroo Courts” are not new. I experienced them first hand in 1994. And witnessed similar things in the military in the late 1990’s.

    The American culture has been misandristic far longer than two years.

    The answer is simpler still. The US Constitution grants rights to individuals NOT groups. So long as the law continues to grant “rights” to somebody based on his or her membership in a given group, this problem will continue and get worse. When accuser and accused are treated as individuals with equal stature before the law, the problem disappears. It is the group thumb on the scale that distorts the process.

    The same phenomenon can be seen in rush to hyphenate the use of the word “American.” Instead of being a generic American, anyone part of a hyphenated subgroup appears to have more “rights” than the rest of us.

    It is bollocks, of course, but prevalent nevertheless.

  • The answer is simple. Write legislation that forces any college that gets state or federal funding to 1) have all hearings conducted in public 2) allow counsel, especially lawyers, for the defense 3) follow the Federal rules of evidence and procedure 4) that includes crosexamining witnesses 4) allow recording of procedures 5) have all hearings before a neutral arbitrator (which discounts womyns’ (sic) studies harridans
    Oh, and violation of any of the above will be a felony- not just a tort. I want professors and deans in PMITA prison.
    Also junk speech codes. They take money from Congress they have to pay the price.

    I still do not understand how it is constitutional to have a parallel court system in the universities that dishes out real punishment (expelling students) and does not allow due process?

    Does anybody have a reference to court cases where this was supposedly ruled ok?”

    • The simple answer is that a university can expel someone at its own discretion. Nut-jobs at a particular university could seize control of the administration and start pulling this crap, at which point people would leave and go to school somewhere else.

      The problem is that leftists within the federal government are maliciously mis-interpreting Title IX legislation as REQUIRING universities to deploy these kangaroo courts.

      If I were a young person today, I’d avoid traditional universities like the plague.

    A very similar pattern in Canadian “human rights” tribunals, where accused persons are more or less required to prove their innocence. In Canada, accusers cast a much broader net–“hate speech” is frequently at issue–but there is a similar sacrifice of due process in the interest of protecting “victimized classes” of people.

    • Victimized CLASSES of people?

      I really do think leftism is not only a mental illness, but a moral one as well.

    As far as kangaroo courts are concerned, I would give this advice to all male college students. Do not have sex with anybody ever while on campus. Never ever kiss another student. Do not have a girlfriend who is also a student. Do not, ever, ask a student out on a date as that may be viewed as an unwanted sexual advance. Do not dance with a girl on campus ever, especially if the dance involves touching. All of these things are too dangerous. If you want sex, use an on-line dating site and go very far from campus on your date. Stay away from campus. Keep your sex life and your campus life completely separate. The stakes are just too high and campus officials, including and most especially student affairs administrators are your enemy. Do not trust them, ever. You are paying a huge amount of money to get an education and a degree. These people can take it all away on nothing more than a whim. Your life will be ruined and you have no recourse. DO NOT HAVE SEX ON CAMPUS EVER. NEVER be alone with a girl on campus. If a girl is in your room, keep your door open. Protect yourself and your future. Be vigilant.
