The 2011 federal Title IX investigation into Yale ended with a voluntary resolution agreement between the University and the DOE’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR); Yale didn’t face any disciplinary action for creating a “hostile sexual environment,” but was required to implement new grievance procedures and report to the OCR until May 31, 2014. The university has made some great structural changes, said Alexandra Brodsky (’12 LAW ’16), one of the 16 students and alumni who filed a Title IX complaint, but this most recent report shows that “very little has changed.”
Based on our analysis of the report, Yale has formally found sufficient evidence against six perpetrators of “nonconsensual sex” so far in 2013.* Of these six perpetrators, only one was suspended, and only for one year. Four received “written reprimands,” and one is on “probation.”
It’s like progressive women are just now discovering the brutally high college rape statistics. I wrote on this in March at the height of the Colorado conceal carry battle on college campuses:
I’ve written before how gun control is the real war on women. Some facts for Hudak:
According to the FBI, Americans use firearms in self defense 2.1 million times annually. Cases where firearms are used criminally amount to 579,000. Seventy percent of those cases are carried out by criminal repeat offenders. Barrett and Democrats would seek to punish those protecting themselves rather than the criminals.
There is a war on women, and it’s coming from the left to turn women into victims. Note this (bold my emphasis):
- In the vast majority of those self-defense cases, the citizen will only brandish the gun or fire a warning shot.
- In less than 8% of those self-defense cases will the citizen will even wound his attacker.
- Over 1.9 million of those self-defense cases involve handguns.
- As many as 500,000 of those self-defense cases occur away from home.
- Almost 10% of those self-defense cases are women defending themselves against sexual assault or abuse.
Hudak’s argument that a woman could be disarmed and her firearm used on her flies in the face of FBI crime statistics and presupposes that the woman won’t fire and/or is incapable of properly using a firearm. See, Amanda Collins was overpowered, disarmed, and left to be a victim. By Nevada lawmakers. Not her rapist. Just what Hudak said would happen, though not exactly.
I hardly expect universities who refuse to allow women the right of self protection to assist in protecting women by at least classifying rape as rape and not “nonconsensual sex” and allow rapists to stay on campus.
If only these women were allowed the pro-choice right of choosing their self defense …
