Rape Culture In AmeriKKKa: George Will Says Being A College Rape Victim Is Now A ‘Coveted Status’.


George Will: Colleges become the victims of progressivism

 

Will_Final

 

By George Will & The Washington Post

 

Colleges and universities are being educated by Washington and are finding the experience excruciating. They are learning that when they say campus victimizations are ubiquitous (“micro-aggressions,” often not discernible to the untutored eye, are everywhere), and that when they make victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate. And academia’s progressivism has rendered it intellectually defenseless now that progressivism’s achievement, the regulatory state, has decided it is academia’s turn to be broken to government’s saddle.

 

Consider the supposed campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. “sexual assault.” Herewith, a Philadelphia magazine report about Swarthmore College, where in 2013 a student “was in her room with a guy with whom she’d been hooking up for three months”:

 

“They’d now decided — mutually, she thought — just to be friends. When he ended up falling asleep on her bed, she changed into pajamas and climbed in next to him. Soon, he was putting his arm around her and taking off her clothes. ‘I basically said, “No, I don’t want to have sex with you.” And then he said, “OK, that’s fine” and stopped. . . . And then he started again a few minutes later, taking off my panties, taking off his boxers. I just kind of laid there and didn’t do anything — I had already said no. I was just tired and wanted to go to bed. I let him finish. I pulled my panties back on and went to sleep.’”

 

Six weeks later, the woman reported that she had been raped. Now the Obama administration is riding to the rescue of “sexual assault” victims. It vows to excavate equities from the ambiguities of the hookup culture, this cocktail of hormones, alcohol and the faux sophistication of today’s prolonged adolescence of especially privileged young adults.

 

The administration’s crucial and contradictory statistics are validated the usual way, by official repetition; Joe Biden has been heard from. The statistics are: One in five women is sexually assaulted while in college, and only 12 percent of assaults are reported. Simple arithmetic demonstrates that if the 12 percent reporting rate is correct, the 20 percent assault rate is preposterous. Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute notes, for example, that in the four years 2009 to 2012 there were 98 reported sexual assaults at Ohio State. That would be 12 percent of 817 total out of a female student population of approximately 28,000, for a sexual assault rate of approximately 2.9 percent — too high but nowhere near 20 percent.

 

Education Department lawyers disregard pesky arithmetic and elementary due process. Threatening to withdraw federal funding, the department mandates adoption of a minimal “preponderance of the evidence” standard when adjudicating sexual assault charges between males and the female “survivors” — note the language of prejudgment. Combine this with capacious definitions of sexual assault that can include not only forcible sexual penetration but also nonconsensual touching. Then add the doctrine that the consent of a female who has been drinking might not protect a male from being found guilty of rape. Then comes costly litigation against institutions that have denied due process to males they accuse of what society considers serious felonies.

 

Now academia is unhappy about the Education Department’s plan forgovernment to rate every institution’s educational product. But the professors need not worry. A department official says this assessment will be easy: “It’s like rating a blender.” Education, gadgets — what’s the difference?

 

Meanwhile, the newest campus idea for preventing victimizations — an idea certain to multiply claims of them — is “trigger warnings.” They would be placed on assigned readings or announced before lectures. Otherwise, traumas could be triggered in students whose tender sensibilities would be lacerated by unexpected encounters with racism, sexism, violence (dammit, Hamlet, put down that sword!) or any other facet of reality that might violate a student’s entitlement to serenity. This entitlement has already bred campus speech codes that punish unpopular speech. Now the codes are begetting the soft censorship of trigger warnings to swaddle students in a “safe,” “supportive,” “unthreatening” environment, intellectual comfort for the intellectually dormant.

 

It is salutary that academia, with its adversarial stance toward limited government and cultural common sense, is making itself ludicrous. Academia is learning that its attempts to create victim-free campuses — by making everyone hypersensitive, even delusional, about victimizations — brings increasing supervision by the regulatory state that progressivism celebrates.

 

What government is inflicting on colleges and universities, and what they are inflicting on themselves, diminishes their autonomy, resources, prestige and comity. Which serves them right. They have asked for this by asking for progressivism.

 

Thank you George Will & The Washington Post.

Major Newspaper Dumps George Will, Apologizes For ‘Offensive’ Rape Column

 

BY JUDD LEGUM

 

Early this month, Washington Post columnist George Will wrote a column claiming that being a rape victim is now a “coveted status” that college women seek out. Will argued that complaints of rape and sexual assualt on college campus were overblown. He also suggested that women claiming to be raped were “delusional.”

 

Will’s column is syndicated in newspapers across the country by the Washington Post, which bills him as “the most influential writer in America.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which has published Will’s column for a number of years, has had enough. In a message today to readers, the paper announced they were dropping Will from their paper and apologized for running his column on sexual assault:

 

The change has been under consideration for several months, but a column published June 5, in which Mr. Will suggested that sexual assault victims on college campuses enjoy a privileged status, made the decision easier. The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it.

 

Will will be replaced in the Post-Dispatch by another Washington Post columnist, Michael Gerson.

Rick Perry And Sean Hannity Are Currently Patrolling The Border On A Boat With A Machine Gun…So Fuckin What?

Rick Perry And Sean Hannity Are Currently Patrolling The Border On A Boat With A Machine Gun

 

AUTHOR

 

Conservatives have spent the last few days criticizing President Barack Obama for the fact that he declined to visit the U.S.-Mexico border during his trip to Texas. Not missing a chance to attempt to embarrass the president, Texas Governor Rick Perry grabbed his friend Fox News host Sean Hannity, jumped on the nearest military-grade boat, and had his picture taken.

 

Perry has recently taken the lead on the topic of conservative complaints about immigration. The dysfunction of America’s immigration policies have been thrust onto the country recently when thousands of kids from Central and South America have wound up at America’s border and into the hands of overwhelmed immigration officials with no clear solutions about what to do with them.

 

Yesterday, Obama and Perry met to discuss the humanitarian crisis on the border, Obama described the meeting as “productive,” Perry sang a different tune. In an interview just hours after leaving Obama’s company, Perry told Fox News that he felt like Obama was ignoring the problem. He went so far as to suggest that not visiting the border was Obama’s “Hurricane Katrina” moment.

 

“I think about the criticism that George W. Bush received when he didn’t go to New Orleans [during] Katrina, this is no different,” he said on Fox News’ Hannity.

 

Apparently, the two of them – one a right-wing pundit and the other a sitting state governor – were eager to show how proactive they were being and traveled to the border to pose for some photos and try to look as cool as possible.

 

Hannity has been posting a torrent of the photos on twitter throughout the day.

 

Oh boy.

 

Hannity and Perry seem to have mistaken an influx of unaccompanied children as a military invasion force. Hannity in particular doesn’t seem able to contain his excite over being near a machine gun, tweeting several pictures that are just ammunition or the guns themselves.

 

What do they plan on doing with those guns? The kids are not dangerous, nor are they seeking to evade the American Border Patrol.

 

By all accounts, most of the children simply get across the Rio Grande and then find the nearest American to turn themselves in. They don’t know what else to do and they assume the Americans will help them.

 

Perry doesn’t seem to care. His plan is to send 1,000 Texas National Guard troops onto the border despite having absolutely no idea how that will help.

 

The fact that he thinks a boat armed with a machine gun looks like he’s helping further displays how ignorant Perry is about the crisis in Texas. Again, unless he plans on shooting these kids as they attempt to cross, the machine guns are nothing but props to make conservatives salivate.

 

One way Perry could have helped the kids and strengthened the borders was to support the immigration overhaulRepublicans in Congress recently killed. Of course, Perry didn’t. That would have gone a long way to actually addressing the problem. But on the other hand, Perry wouldn’t be able to ride alongside a .50 caliber machine gun then, would he?

 

Thank you Addicting Info.

I am constantly amazed, although I should not be, at the dumbfuckery of The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian, Psycho-Sexual, Pro-caucasian, Pro-Racist, Anti-LGBTQA1, Anti-Feminist, Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative, NRA-Gun Loving, Nut Bag, bottom feeding, racist, ass backwards, white supremacists, Koch Brothers & A.L.E.C. controlled morons, greedy, wealthy, caucasian, special interest groups, asshole Party Members.

 

The President making a visit to the border in TexASS for a photo opportunity, which has no apparent value other than being a farce, is of some matter of importance for these two ass-hats, Perry and Hannity.

 

This is the issue with Immigration, it is used as a political talking point to disrespect The President Of The United States.

 

Here are some facts and truth about Immigration……

Man’s Inhumanity To The Transgender Community. This MUST STOP.

Body of transgender woman found shot to death, left on a Cincinnati street

 

  Saturday, June 28, 2014

 

CINCINNATI, Ohio – A transgender woman was found dead Thursday morning in the middle of a Cincinnati street.

 

Tiffany Edwards, 28, had been shot to death, according to news reports, which said her body was discovered about 8 a.m. Thursday by a city sanitation driver.

Local news reports identified her as DeAndre Edwards and didn’t mention her gender identity, but BRAVO — the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization — said Edwards identified as Tiff or Tiffany.

 

BRAVO also said it believes the murder was hate-motivated and that Edwards was targeted based on perception of her gender identity and expression.

 

“BRAVO is saddened and outraged as our communities continue to be targeted,” Executive Director Gloria McCauley said in a statement.

 

Aaron Eckhardt, BRAVO training and technical assistance director said it’s the fourth killing nationwide this month of a transgender woman of color. A 2013 report by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that transgender people were the victims in half the hate-crime killings of LGBT people, and people of color are the victims  in 75 percent of the killings.

 

Edwards’ death is the fourth murder of a transgender woman in Ohio in the past 18 months, and the third murder of a young transgender woman of color:

 

 

  • Betty Skinner, 52, was found dead in her Cleveland apartment in December by a home health worker.

 

  • Brittany Stergis, 22, was found dead in a car in Cleveland, also in December. She had been shot to death. Delshawn Carroll, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated murder earlier this month.

 

“The brutality and violence we see being committed against trans communities of color is real. It’s happening in our own cities, in our own state. This violence needs to end. Trans lives matter,” Shane Morgan, said founder and chair of TransOhio.

 

McCauley said the latest killing underscores the need for discussion and action on hate crimes against LGBT people. Ohio’s hate-crimes law does not cover crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

The murders of two other transgender women are being investigated in California and in Florida.

Body of transgender woman found burned, dumped behind garbage bin

 

 Monday, June 23, 2014

 

FORT MYERS, Fla. — More than 200 people attended a vigil Sunday to honor a transgender woman whose body was found dumped behind a garbage bin in Fort Myers, Fla., last week.

 

The bloody and charred body of 31-year-old Yaz’min Shancez was discovered on a dead-end road behind a truck rental facility shortly after 8 a.m. on Thursday, June 19.

Workers reported that Shancez’ body was “still smoldering” when she was discovered.

 

Family and friend describe Shancez — nicknamed “Miss T” — as a proud transgender woman who loved being surrounded by endless relatives at family barbecues, and who never forgot to say I love you.

 

No arrests have been made in what authorities are calling a homicide, but have not classified as a hate crime.

 

In 2013, 13 of the 18 documented anti-LGBTQ homicides were transgender women and 89 percent of the victims were people of color, GLAAD reports.

 

In California, police are investigating the death of another transgender woman whose body was found June 12 behind a Dairy Queen restaurant in Anaheim, Calif.

 

Thank you

Not one single human is safe in this nation until every single human is safe in this nation. The sexual orientation of a person does not allow for that person to be abused, bullied, harassed or systematically murdered.

 

What makes a coward man think he has the right to take a life, especially because he is too chickenshit to accept the fact that humans have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness dependent upon their own individual ideas of what life liberty and the pursuit of happiness is to them?

 

The problem with Americans in 2014 is their lack of the ability to mind their own muthafuckin business and leave others the fuck alone. I hate AmeriKKKa and coward ass AmeriKKKans.
