Regarding rape cases on college campuses, women can’t be trusted. Just look at the most recently reported college campus rape cases — Virginia, Duke lacrosse, the Mattress Girl at Columbia and Lena Dunham’s charges. All four proved that the women lied. A fifth case regarding former Florida State athlete Jameis Winston was dismissed but is being revisited. So of the most recent nationally reported college rape cases, at least 80 percent proved that the women lied.
A survey of all the forcible rape complaints during a three-year period at two large midwestern state universities found that 50 percent of the accusations were false, not “unable to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” but actually false.
Federal Title IX rules assume that the man is guilty until proven innocent. He can’t have a lawyer present, no standards of “beyond a reasonable doubt” and regular rules of evidence don’t have to be followed.
What are guys to do? Don’t date college girls. If you buy them one drink, they are assumed to be under the influence and unable to give consent. Don’t date them or be alone with them if possible. You might not be as lucky as the University of Virginia or the Duke lacrosse guys.
Never miss a local story.
