A College of William and Mary student said that “labeling all members of fraternities as rapists is justified” after vandals spray painted “rapist” on frats at the school in November.
Aditya Mohan made the remark in a column for The Flat Hat, one of the school’s papers. He also argued that the community should “destroy [fraternities].”
“It is all of our responsibilities to stand in solidarity with victims, trans people, poor people, women, people of color and others hurt by fraternities and destroy the structures that harm them,” wrote the student, who added that frats are “a network built to further nepotism and favoritism in employment, politics and civil society.”
Mohan says there are issues with both erasing and keeping the vandalism on the frat building. He says erasing it could censor survivors, but leaving it could trigger those survivors.
Now campus activists say that one in five women are sexually assaulted during their time on campus. But the study cited only accounted for students at two universities, received a low response rate, counted drunken-sex as assault, and didn’t actually ask the students polled outright whether they experienced rape or sexual assault. The Bureau of Justice, meanwhile, reports that fewer than one percent of college students are sexually assaulted.
Students have targeted frats both verbally and physically across the country. A University of Virginia frat had its house vandalized and windows smashed with bricks after Rolling Stone magazine libelously published a story about a gang rape that never in fact occurred there. Antifa marched on frats at the University of Minnesota with a sign stating “kill rapists” and shouted “f*** the frats.” Vandals at the University of Texas at Austin wrote “kill frat boys,” “racist” and “rapist” on frat houses, and Antifa published an open letter ordering people to “make their lives hell.” A few days later, student Kendrex White stabbed four students — killing one — allegedly searching specifically for frat and sorority members.
Prof Banned After Planning Anti-Kavanaugh Trip
Former University of Southern Maine economics and women’s and gender studies professor Susan Feiner apparently hit up her buddy Gabriel Demaine, a diversity and inclusive programming coordinator at USM to propose a one-credit course for students. I got forwarded an email from Demaine which read:
“Students can earn 1 credit FREE for enrolling in this Pop-Up course on ‘Engaged Citizenship.’ The requirements of the pop-up include: busing overnight to Washington, D.C. to join activists, political action groups, and social justice organizations to meet with Sen. [Susan] Collins,” as reported in Campus Reform.
I don’t know about you, but if I lived in Maine, I’m not sure how comfortable I’d be with my tax dollars funding such naked activism. Anyway, Susan Feiner was also going to send students a survey which said “check all that apply,” followed by statements like “I am a survivor and willing to share my story to the public (Livestream, rally, press)” and “I am interested in civil disobedience/willing to get arrested (Bail is about $50/arrest. Please have a plan).”
Susan went to D.C. earlier in October, but her little “course,” planned for the same day, was never approved by the university because USM President Glenn Cummings stepped in and said “This pop-up-course was hastily arranged, without the knowledge of the Provost or myself. It was not appropriately reviewed nor went through proper channels. As soon as the Provost and I were apprised of the course, we immediately pulled the one-credit offering. We also made sure that no USM monies were being used for the trip.”
I, for once, don’t have any snarky remark to make because this is exactly what they should have done. Once they retire, professors often still teach a few courses but Susan Feiner, who actually retired three months ago, won’t be, at least at any University of Maine campus, because Cummings has barred her from doing so.
Cornell Studies In Trouble For Ranking Ladies’ Looks?
Male students in Cornell University’s law school allegedly ranked female law students by their appearances and the administration was not pleased, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Cornell Law Dean Eduardo Penalver emailed students, saying: “upon receiving this troubling report, the Dean of Students asked Lawyering faculty as well as small section instructors to discuss these allegations with their students and to communicate to their sections in no uncertain terms that, if they are true, the behavior may well violate University Policy 6.4, which prohibits (among other things) the creation of a hostile educational environment on the basis of sex.”
This is a key instance of the puritanical impulses of the left eroding objective reality. FACT: Men AND women have key factors they seek out in potential mates: intelligence, humor, compassion, etc. FACT: beauty is, whether you like it or not, one of those factors.
Cornell’s starting a Title IX investigation over this and the results COULD be as drastic as Harvard’s decision last year to rescind admission offers for at least ten students who sent allegedly “offensive memes” in a private group.
The Ivy League is seeming less and less big league and more and more just like ordinary poison.
Anti-Terrorism Speaker Uninvited, Then Reinvited To Rutgers
Rutgers University invited Fox News political analyst and anti-Islamic terrorism speaker Lisa Daftari to give a lecture entitled “Radicalism on College Campuses,” rescinded the invitation, and then extended it again, reported Campus Reform.
A petition that called Lisa a “bigot” and “unapologetic Islamophobe” made the rounds online and got more than 1,600 signatures. The petition cited times she said “Islamic terror takes its guidance and teachings from the Quran, which is Sharia law” and “When you go to the mosque and you’re part of a community, and you want to feel important and relevant, and want to give back to the cause — [ISIS] recruits you. You say- I can be an ISIS wife.” The petition said “This statement, equating Muslims everywhere with ISIS, is undoubtedly hate-mongering.”
Ok so maybe Lisa neglected to make the distinction in that particular part of that particular speech. But just a quick Google search reveals that she clearly sees ISIS as only a minority of Islam.
Rutgers initially stood strong against calls to cancel Daftari, saying “if these issues are not brought to the forefront and given a chance to be debated, then they may continue to stay buried,” but the school eventually caved less than a week before Lisa was due to speak this Tuesday, cancelling her talk.
Another petition was started, this time by conservative and libertarian students at Rutgers, defending Lisa’s statements and saying that students at the school called the speaker a “cockroach” and a “bitch.”
And then Rutgers went back on their decision to UNINVITE Lisa, with an administrator sending her a message reading: “I want to write to clear up any confusion regarding your invitation to speak at the University….To the degree that I may have contributed to the confusion, I hope you will accept my apology.”
The school offered her four November dates to speak.
