Fraternities, those rape pits of the modern academy where "raping, assaulting and treating women as substantially less than human is not only allowed, but encouraged," are so decidedly evil that, in the aftermath of Rolling Stone's imaginary rape exposé, many people called for them to be banned.
Well, it turned out the Rolling Stone story was a big lie, as is the one-in-five stat, and the claim that only 2-to-8 percent of rape claims are false. But so what? The lies serve a greater purpose, don't they? DON'T THEY?! And it's perfectly okay to reduce frat men to vile caricature--after all, no one cares if a bunch of young white men are offended about how they're treated.
Yet--go figure--it's evil fraternity men who are now the ones leading the charge to insure that every claim of sexual assault is reported to the police. This is a requirement of the proposed Safe Campus Act, which would mandate that before any claim of sexual assault is investigated by the school internally, it must be turned over to law enforcement. Fraternities are pushing for the new law.
Can fraternities be any more depraved?
The usual suspects are having a hissy fit over the proposed law. See here and here. They are suggesting that somehow it would shield rapists and put women at greater risk. Why? Because it assures the accused fair processes.
Down, down, down the rabbit hole we tumble.
It makes sense that the sexual grievance industry clings to the status quo when you consider that they constructed the current college system and it's wholly consistent with their "always believe the woman" meme. The current system mandates that even if there is a reasonable doubt about the accuser's story, and even if the evidence in her favor isn't clear and convincing, her accusation can still be believed. Funny, the sexual grievance industry doesn't care that it's unfair to the accused that he can be labeled a "rapist" for the rest of his life under those circumstances. And none of that protects women from real rapists. See here.
Now, you need to understand something--and here's what the dopes who are complaining never mention. Inviting the police to investigate rape allegations subjects the young frat men to a world of possible trouble--I mean, big time trouble, much worse than being expelled. See, law enforcement doesn't always get it right, and they literally destroy the lives of a lot of young men. Can you say Duke lacrosse? Hofstra? Brian Banks? Jonathon Montgomery? Matt Folino? The young man hauled out of class because of a rape lie by a classmate he never met? The men randomly picked from Facebook and falsely accused of rape? The three men arrested for a false rape lie because a woman wanted an excuse for being late for work? Or how about Warren Blackwell who spent three years and four months behind bars for a false rape claim by a woman who had fabricated at least seven other allegations of sexual and physical assault--when Mr. Blackwell was finally released, he got a bill for £12,500 for "board and lodging" in prison. And Dwayne Dail--now there's one almost too horrific to speak about. The line forms to the left, and if you need a primer on wrongful arrest, start here.
The difference between the real world and the academy is that in the former, at least there's supposed to be due process even though a lot of times there isn't. In the latter, they don't even bother to pretend there's supposed to be due process. The frat brothers are saying they'll side with the very imperfect system where there's supposed to be due process, even though it puts them at great potential risk.
But can't have that on campus. That "due process" nonsense--it interferes with their "always believe the woman" agenda.
