Sexual misconduct: California court says college was unfair to the accused

Article here. Excerpt:

'A California appeals court has joined the debate over how colleges should handle sexual misconduct cases, saying a school disciplinary board should require an accuser to attend a hearing and answer questions before suspending or expelling an accused student.

The ruling Wednesday by the Second District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles comes while the Trump administration is calling on colleges to set a higher standard of proof in cases of alleged sexual assault or harassment and to strengthen rights of the accused, most of them men. Women’s rights advocates have filed a nationwide suit in San Francisco against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, saying her new guidelines are based on sex discrimination.
...
When a student faces “potentially severe consequences” such as suspension, and the outcome depends on the accuser’s credibility, the accuser “must be before the finder of fact,” either in person or by videoconference, Justice Helen Bendix said in the 3-0 ruling.

Although participation in the hearing “may be traumatic or intimidating,” Bendix said, “fairness required ... that all three (panel members) hear from Jane before choosing to believe her account over John’s.” She also said the accused must be allowed to question the accuser, either directly or by relaying questions to the disciplinary panel.'

From SAVE:

How many students do you know have been wrongfully found responsible by a campus disciplinary committee?
 
Would you believe the Department of Justice is considering a proposal to have these students listed in a public Sex Offender Registry? Here's the notice: https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2018-08-01/pdf/2018-16430.pdf

Over 100 judges have ruled in favor of students who sued their universities for lack of due process.

It is urgent that we all speak out against this idea. Contact Samantha Opong, SMART Office. Email: Samantha.Opong@usdoj.gov,  Phone: (202) 514-9320.

Feminists turn on Kimmel

Article here. Excerpt:

'Michael Kimmel, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, said last week that he’s deferring his acceptance of a major sociology award for six months, over what he called “rumors” about his professional conduct. And while Kimmel’s terminology was criticized as dismissive of his accusers, the harassment allegations against him circulating online and off were then anonymous.

But on Thursday one of Kimmel’s former Stony Brook graduate students put their (the student's preferred pronoun) name behind a detailed account of what they called his explicit sexual talk, homophobia, transphobia and general “lack of respect” for anyone but cisgender heterosexual men. In an essay published in Medium, Bethany M. Coston, now an assistant professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, said now was the time to share their experiences.

To Coston, now means three years removed from working with Kimmel and the fear of professional consequences that could come with speaking out against him. It means showing solidarity with his accusers, distaste for his response thus far and sending a message to the American Sociological Association. The association was to give Kimmel a career award for promoting the study of women in sociology at its annual gathering this weekend in Philadelphia. But Kimmel said last week that he’d asked ASA to wait six months, to look into any claims against him first.'

There is a gender war

August 13th, 2018

Article here. Excerpt:

'Forget the mythical war on women.

What we’re really seeing in American culture is a growing war on men. There’s a bias against men that seeks to demean, devalue and ultimately emasculate normal, healthy men and boys in virtually all aspects of life — the U.S. educational and legal systems, the workplace, pop culture and even modern-day families. And you have the radical left and feminists to thank. Under the banner of championing women’s rights and “female equality” — effectively for decades — they also have been waging “jihad” against their male counterparts.

Take public education. It’s no secret that the American public K-12 school system — in an effort to empower its female students — is now predominantly “teaching to girls,” vs. providing curricula and atmospheres that educate, support and empower all students equally. Of course, education officials won’t admit to any form of bias — intentional or otherwise — as gender discrimination is illegal, but all you have to do is look at college enrollment data and judge for yourself.

Today there are millions more women enrolled in colleges and universities than men. In 2017, there were 2.2 million fewer men enrolled in higher education than women, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Female students now constitute more than 56 percent of college enrollment nationwide — a trend with no sign of abating that is putting men at a great financial disadvantage, as college graduates earn 56 percent more than those with just high school diplomas.'

California may mandate a woman in the boardroom, but businesses are fighting it

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'California is moving toward becoming the first state to require companies to have women on their boards –assuming the idea could survive a likely court challenge.

Sparked by debates around fair pay, sexual harassment and workplace culture, two female state senators are spearheading a bill to promote greater gender representation in corporate decision-making. Of the 445 publicly traded companies in California, a quarter of them lack a single woman in their boardrooms.

SB 826, which won Senate approval with only Democratic votes and has until the end of August to clear the Assembly, would require publicly held companies headquartered in California to have at least one woman on their boards of directors by end of next year. By 2021, companies with boards of five directors must have at least two women, and companies with six-member boards must have at least three women. Firms failing to comply would face a fine.
...
Yet critics of the bill say it violates the federal and state constitutions. Business associations say the rule would require companies to discriminate against men wanting to serve on boards, as well as conflict with corporate law that says the internal affairs of a corporation should be governed by the state law in which it is incorporated. This bill would apply to companies headquartered in California.'

Case against Ole Miss Title IX office could set national precedent for sexual assault cases on college campuses

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'Doe v. The University of Mississippi will appear before the fifth circuit court on Aug. 14, and it could set a precedent for the way sexual assault cases are handled across the country.

The case centers around a March 30, 2017 sexual encounter between John Doe and Jane Roe, both undergraduate students at the University of Mississippi. On March 31, Roe filed a complaint with the university Title IX office, who notified the University Police Department. Doe was in New Orleans at a fraternity formal with another woman at the time.

In the weeks since the initial incident, Doe and Roe remained friends and attended social functions together. On April 18, 2017, Roe indicated she did not want to press charges against Doe. Two days later, she met with a UPD officer and confirmed her desire to not press charges, saying she “felt she had the closure she needed to go about her routine and was happy with it.” Subsequently, Roe completed a non-prosecution form.'

Ocasio-Cortez Tries To Blame Sexism For People Calling Out Her Claims

Article here. Excerpt:

'Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-described “Democratic socialist” running for congress in New York, has apparently decided that crying sexism is the way to win debates and endear oneself to the Left. Considering how Democrats often play the victim card, she may be on to something.
...
Secondly, Ocasio-Cortez’s default response appears to be to cry sexism. She’s essentially saying: “It’s my first campaign! Why are you being so mean to me?” and suggesting she's only being treated this way because she's a girl. Well, she's being treated this way because she was immediately latched on to by the left-leaning media as a new star because she beat the number four Democrat incumbent in the House, she would be the youngest person to be elected to Congress, and she’s Latina. She’s just a bunch of boxes to the Left.'

California firefighters

Click "Read more" below to see the two pictures I attached to this piece. These are exhausted firefighters in California getting some sleep before going back up against the fires.

Not one is female. If there are any female firefighters taking on these fires, they are very few in number. AND YET, not a single word of thanks to them from the Feminist Establishment. Feminists scream to bigh heaven should there be one more man than woman in a high-paying, clean, safe line of work, yet say nothing about fire-fighting (except occasionally, and then quite selectively), garbage collection, ordnance disposal, police work (except only occasionally and in re specific cases), or military combat roles except in re the "safer" ones. There are others: maintenance workers of all kinds, for example.

California universities are notorious bastions of political correctness and institutionalized anti-male bigotry. To these indulged pseudo-academics, I say, look at these pictures, these "privileged" male, AND white, patriarchs. Look at how "privileged" they are as you drink your coffee in your comfy office chair in your comfy job at your comfy politically correct university which is not going to burn to the ground. You have these EVIL WHITE MALE PATRIARCHAL DOWNPRESSORMEN to thank for that.

Or just pretend you never saw it. Or just rationalize your indifference or lack of gratitude away with some kind of ideological platitude and go back to grading papers. Remember to give all the white males Cs just because and everyone else As.

Hungary Bans Gender Studies Programs, Cites Concerns with Lack of Jobs

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'Several news outlets reported on Friday that the Hungarian government has banned gender studies programs, citing a lack of jobs for graduates.
In a move that will certainly spark debates over censorship, the Hungarian government moved to ban gender studies programs, primarily from the two major universities in the country that offer gender studies programs. One of the universities is public and the other is private.

According to HVG.hu, the part of the amendment which concerns gender studies provides no explanation whatsoever. Two universities are concerned: Hungary’s biggest state-funded university ELTE, and the Central European University, founded by George Soros. If the amendment becomes official, it will mean that nobody can attend gender studies courses in Hungary and get a degree in the subject. HVG.hu notes that CEU offers both Hungarian and American degrees, the amendment will not affect the latter.
...

Gender studies may be partisan drivel with no grounding in reality. But it’s better for such programs to be laughed, rather than legislated, out of existence.'

No men allowed: UVM hosts women-only debate championship

Article here. Excerpt:

'The first rule of a North American debate tournament to be held in Vermont this weekend: No men allowed.

Some 150 debaters from 18 schools across the U.S. and Canada will compete in the special tournament, which is designed to be a safe space for women who complain of bias when they debate against men.

Although some men will be allowed to serve as judges, organizers say the tournament at the University of Vermont offers women a chance to hone their speaking and arguing skills and gain confidence and friends without being subject to sexism.

"There is also a lot of sexual predation that happens in the debate community," said UVM debate director Helen Morgan-Parmett. "The tournament, I think, provides a safe space where people feel they are debating other women, and their bodies aren't necessarily on display."

College debating is one of the few intercollegiate competitive activities in which women and men compete directly against one another. While some women do win, the debaters say they have to be that much better than men to overcome bias on the part of many judges. And they point to statistics that show they are less likely to reach the top echelons of the activity.'
