I love this game! Let's swap a word for something else and see what we get!

"I mean, if there's 10 [blacks] that have been accused...maybe one or two did it, seems better to get rid of all 10."

"I mean, if there's 10 [jews] that have been accused...maybe one or two did it, seems better to get rid of all 10."

"I mean, if there's 10 [muslims] that have been accused...maybe one or two did it, seems better to get rid of all 10."

I love using the word "hysteria" around feminists. It always pisses them off.

If there wasn't some kernel of truth in female hysteria, they wouldn't get so upset about it. Feminists are well aware of that rising sense of uncontrolled, "triggered" emotion that, if unchecked, would have them shrieking, crying, and pulling fire alarms. Only some of them can't control it, however.

Kernel of truth? Emotional hysteria is the female default, they need to be actively forced to engage their rational side before they employ it, and when culture pretends that holding them accountable for their hysteria is "sexist" they remain free to be as hysterical as they need to in order to accomplish everything they are told they want.

Which is ducked up, because there's been research to prove that being exposed to triggers is the only way to cure ptsd, and avoiding them makes your ptsd worse.

I love how most feminists don't know the history of the word "Hysteria", and don't react to it when its used. It just shows how a word with a historically sexist meaning is ignored by feminists, while they try to fight against the dreaded 'Patriarchy'.

Then they should also expel every girl who claims she got raped. If 10 girls claim they got raped, maybe one or two are making false accusations, seems better to get rid of all 10.

Title IX mutated from its original purpose of protecting female athletics programs and became a cudgel for victim's rights. Then the Clery Act came along forcing schools to publish their crime statistics, which gave schools a motivation to deter students from reporting crime to the police and instead use an internal process. For 20 years schools were quietly handing these cases, with great inconsistently and a lot of secrecy, and obviously no school wanted to stand out among its peers as having a bigger problems with sexual assault than everyone else. Ironically, now that the issue has become a common headline, some people are trying to give these campus tribunals even more power, based on the new interpretations of Title IX, and at the same time weakening the effectiveness of local police on campus. Politically, the people who control campus culture (the illiberals) want an affirmation of their control, and they are willing to throw out due process to accomplish this.

In their mind, due process isn't necessary as long as the correct outcome is achieved.

It seems to be just university campuses. Elementary and high schools did not receive authority by the federal government to determine guilt, instead they have to do like the rest of us, call real cops then a government prosecutor may petition a criminal judge.

Something as serious as rape should be handled by the police and legal system. Which in itself has become kind of a joke but still I trust it more than this shit

Probably in part because no one wants to be seen as doing nothing about a perceived problem, and that perceived problem has no workable solutions. Rape is generally very difficult to prove in a court of law, so we introduced courts that allow a lesser punishment with a lesser burden of proof so it can look like we're doing something about rapes on campus. Since then the pressure from the higher ups keeps building on universities to do something about this "crisis" so the burden of proof keeps getting lower and lower, to the point where a woman can claim something and unless the man can undeniably prove his innocence (and even then, sometimes it doesn't matter), the man is punished so it looks like we're doing something. It's not solving the problem (if there even is one), but people sleep better at night knowing something is being done. We don't like acknowledging that there's a problem, and that there's very little we can do about it.

There's a time, a place, and some circumstances where it makes sense for universities to publish students. The issue is that those cases should typically be ones where either the issue is non-criminal (i.e. violations of the student code, such as cheating), or offenses where the university is in some way the victim (such as vandalism). The issue comes about when the school opts to intervene in a dispute between students and act as an arbiter. They're not qualified for that, and they have far too much pressure being put on them to act as an unbiased arbiter. As someone mentioned below, the accounting for on-campus rapes as a metric is generally recorded by the number of rapes reported to the police. If the campus can intervene and act as an arbiter, and prevent the rape from being reported to the police, their statistics stay low. This gives them an incentive to almost universally side with the female because it lets females know that they can bring it to the university, and the male in question will disappear. For some people, that may be enough of a resolution, especially if they can do that and avoid the court system.

We don't like acknowledging that there's a problem, and that there's very little we can do about it.

We don't even know the true scope of the problem, we rely on political rhetoric that has reached the highest (POTUS) level of society with the claim that 1 out of 5 college women will be sexually assaulted, yet the best and most recent confirmation we have of this number is a telephone survey of 1,053 people. We measure the poverty rate, we measure the unemployment rate, we even measure crime rates including sexual assault but lack the political willpower to rationally examine the specific problem of campus sexual assault with any seriousness.

And it gets worse. Say someone decided to privately fund some research on the issue. This would do two things, first it would establish a benchmark number for measuring changes over time, and second it would either confirm or demolish the current rhetoric surrounding the issue (the latter being the most likely outcome). Now the problem of campus sexual assault is either a) so enormous we should probably call up the national guard to police college campuses across the nation or b) the issue isn't as big as it was made out to be and there is some serious political damage. And now with a benchmark in place, we can measure changes over time, with three possible outcomes: a) rates go up, indicating a critical failure of policy, b) rates stay the same, indicating the ineffectiveness of policy and suggesting that the institutions themselves should be dismantled, or c) rates go down, a victory for policy but a weakened political position. Almost all of these outcomes result in severe negative consequences to the very people who insist that campus sexual assault is at epidemic levels. But those people (call them what you will) are the only ones who are passionate enough about the issue to potentially do the research.

So I don't get this... you transfer them to another university and then what? The rapists get to rape again and the innocent ones are punished by losing their friends, coursework, etc?

The whole campus rape hysteria seems strange to me anyways. If you compare a sample of women in college to similarly-aged women not in college, I'd give 20:1 odds the ones not in college will report more rapes (by real definition of rape, not drunken makeouts that were regretted the day after).

The issue is that the next university may find out why they were made to leave the first one and refuse them entry. This is especially easy since usually the accused has their name plastered everywhere upon accusation.

Lower income is linked to higher rate of being a victim of sexual assault.

EDIT: Source -- US Department of Justice

Women of all ages, races, and income levels are victims of rape. They are more likely, however, to be young and unmarried. They are disproportionately from low-income families.

I mean, statistically speaking, its more likely that none of the 10 did it.

Though, regardless of how prominent rape is on University campuses, it should not be a university matter.

Rape is a serious crime and needs to be processed by the justice system or redressed personally by the victim.

University kangaroo courts need to stick to cheating on tests and plagiarizing half a sentence on your term paper.
