Imminent train wreck to end all train wrecks? ‘The great campus rape hoax: USA Today Column’

"The greatest train crash ever filmed"

Told you that we had too much bullshit on board, now look at what’s happened

USA Today’s article The great campus rape hoax: Column

And that’s the real college rape hoax. Because the truth is that there’s no epidemic outbreak of college rape. In fact, rape on college campuses is — like rape everywhere else in America — plummeting in frequency. And that 1-in-5 college rape number you keep hearing in the press? It’s thoroughly bogus, too. (Even the authors of that studysay that “We don’t think one in five is a nationally representative statistic,” because it sampled only two schools.)

Sen, Gillibrand also says that “women are at a greater risk of sexual assault as soon as they step onto a college campus.”

The truth — and, since she’s a politician, maybe that shouldn’t be such a surprise — is exactly the opposite. According to the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, the rate of rape and sexual assault is lower for college students (at 6.1 per 1,000) than for non-students (7.6 per 1,000). (Note: not 1 in 5). What’s more, between 1997 and 2013, rape against women dropped by about 50%, in keeping with a more general drop in violent crime nationally.

Sounds promising, what else do ye got?

Upshot: Women on campus aren’t at more risk for sexual assault, and their risk is nothing like the bogus 1-in-5 statistic bandied about by politicians and activists. So why is this non-crisis getting so much press?

It’s getting press because it suits the interests of those pushing the story. For Gillibrand and McCaskill, it’s a woman-related story that helps boost their status as female senators. It ties in with the “war on women” theme that Democrats have been boosting since 2012, and will presumably roll out once again in 2016 in support of Hillary Clinton, or perhaps Elizabeth Warren. And University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan hasn’t apologized for her action in suspending all fraternities (and sororities) on the basis of a bogus story in Rolling Stone. Nor has she apologized for the mob mentality on campus that saw arrests, vandalism and protests at a fraternity housebased, again, on a single bogus report. Instead, she’s doubling down on the narrative.

This kind of hysteria may be ugly, but for campus activists and bureaucrats it’s a source of power: If there’s a “campus rape crisis,” that means that we need new rules, bigger budgets, and expanded power and self-importance for all involved, with the added advantage of letting you call your political opponents (or anyone who threatens funding) “pro rape.” If we focus on the truth, however — rapidly declining rape rates already, without any particular “crisis” programs in place — then voters, taxpayers, and university trustees will probably decide to invest resources elsewhere. So for politicians and activists, a phony crisis beats no crisis.

Nice…sounds like someone started talking about reality in the MSM.  About time…but still…good stuff.  Didn’t, at this stage, look into the dodgy definitions of the alleged offences were.  ‘Stare rape’ anyone?  Regret rape?

And a few of the comments:

For some, victimhood has become a business model. (25 likes right now)

…Even as the definitions of rape and sexual assault have been expanded to include anything that makes women remotely uncomfortable.  (that name…strangely familiar)

(a reply to a fembot complaining that men have no empathy for women ISYN)  Is that the kind of survey that counts any unwanted attention from a man as sexual assault? Where’s your source, I’d like to see this study? Or is this something you just made up?

But.. objective reality is racist, sexist, and homophobic! Call the whaaambulance!


Some difficulty with the whaaambulance, might be running a tad late

Milo’s two sexodus articles have a combined comment count of over 29000 BTW.  Overwhelmingly red-pill in nature.  Fembots told to stuff it…and manginas too.

Things are changing.  Even relative newbies must see that within even their small time window.  I’ve been around around eight years, I reckon (approx-ish)  the change is startling.

Let the legal action commence, because this misandry won’t stop until universities start losing money by supporting these blatant lies.  There must be a lot of potential law suits just waiting for sharky lawyers to comb university records for males booted out of Uni without corresponding Real Court(tm) action.

Dear wacademic feminist ideologues BOGAHCAL.  Justice is coming down the line

Oh noes!  teh patriarchy is coming to git yer

Oh noes! teh patriarchy is coming to git yer

The on-going UVA trainwreck, an update.  Alleged Journalist (I have many, many doubts, with much evidence to support them) promises to re-‘report’ (allegedly, again, I guess) rape story (no alleged there, it really does look like a story at this point).

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Three friends of an alleged victim of gang rape at a University of Virginia frat house say a magazine article wrongly portrayed them as uncaring students who were more concerned about their reputations than her well-being.

The friends told The Associated Press that the Rolling Stone article was wrong on a number of key points, especially its assertion that they urged the victim to not report the attack.

Their alleged indifference was woven into a narrative that used the alleged attack to paint a picture of a culture of sexual violence on college campuses in the United States. The article set off an intense debate about sexual violence, alcohol, fraternities and journalism ethics.

One of the friends, a 20-year-old, third-year student referred to as “Randall” in the Rolling Stone article but whose real name is Ryan Duffin, told the AP that not only did he encourage the alleged victim to go to police, but he started to dial 9-1-1 on his cellphone until she begged off saying she just wanted to go back to her dorm and go to sleep.

“I couldn’t help but notice that everything that the article said about me was incorrect,” Duffin said.

The AP also spoke with the other two friends portrayed in the article: third-year, 20-year-old U.Va. students Kathryn Hendley and Alex Stock, known as “Cindy” and “Andy” in the article. None of the three friends was contacted by Rolling Stone’s reporter, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, before the article was published; each of them rejected multiple assertions made in the article, which has since been retracted.

All three say Erdely has since reached out to them, and that she has told them she is re-reporting the story. Hendley told the AP Erdely apologized to her for portraying her the way she did.

    I never understood that “1 in 5” statistic. If you read most of the studies that reference it, the 1 in 5 isn’t about rape. It’s about general sexual harassment, which now includes everything from all out groping without permission to a man gazing at you too long or asking you out in a way that makes you uncomfortable.

    Sorry, I’ve no sandwiches.

    However, last night I made spaetzel with either beef or mushroom gravy, pork beer brats, vegetarian kielbasa, fresh cinnamon applesauce, sauerkraut, and a chocolate-raspberry Yule log cake.

    Would any of this suffice?


  17. Spawny Get says:

    Maybe…but, hold the sauerkraut. I tried it in France by mistake, didn’t know the true name of that horror in French…choucroute. The only worse two errors I made were
    1) grabbing, in the dairy aisle, in a BIG rush, what looked like a roll of butter to go with my delicious french stick.
    2) on discovering (once home) that I’d grabbed goat’s cheese rather than butter, I foolishly wondered, “Well…how bad could it be?”. So I tried it. How bad? pretty much like sticking your tongue in a goat’s armpit. One of those feminist goats that don’t shave their armpits.

    “Get me Hamm on five, hold the Mayo”
    Is Hamm Tarn’s hamster’s name?


  18. Spawny Get says:

    Mayo being…Tarn’s pet white rat, perhaps?


  19. Yoda says:

    All right, then. Get me Hamm on five, hold the Mayo.

  20. Tarnished says:

    Lol, no. My hamsters name is Cimmorene.

    Spawny, you must’ve gotten some bad cheese. The kind I use when I make goat cheese fritters is soft, creamy, and just a tad salty. A bit like triple creme brie with a thin layer of salt and spices.

    What you had sounds disgusting! And what’s this about not liking sauerkraut? It’s crisp and crunchy and perfectly tart! The best thing to go with wurst and give it a tiny kick.


  21. Tarnished says:

    No, Spawny. I don’t currently have any rats. When I did, their names were Crystal and Licorice. I miss them…rats make the best companions. 😦

    “rats make the best companions” Your lover will be displeased to hear that. I’m not too chuffed, we can check with Moe when he gets here. American is criticising French cuisine…hmm…brave. Best of luck with that 🙂

    I did blow their minds with what real Cheddar tastes like (not like McPlastic sheeting). And showed them how badly creme anglaise (English cream) had lost the plot, by giving them mince pies and custard.

    “I don’t currently have any rats.” Sounds ominous.

    I was hanging out at the counter after my shift was over just now and one of my female customers said “So…Tarnished. We need to talk. What’s this about men going their own way?”

    I froze, because I live in a extremely feminist friendly area, and she asked this in front of my boss! I am ashamed to say I muttered a bit about men who are leaving society/marriage because of sexist laws before quickly making an exit when one of her friends caught her attention. But Gods…my heart was pounding. I have only spoken about these things with male customers, and never when women are around, so someone must’ve told her.

    Crap, crap, crap…This could be bad for me. 😦

    Tarn, just keep your head down. I don’t believe in men or women going under the bus for mgtow. Mgtow works by everybody just not being there. Just keep your powder dry.
    Would it work to say someone mentioned it and you got curious? A feminist such as both you and I are, would be curious wouldn’t we? And I am a feminist, we’re all equal, best of luck to you women. Unless you’re a personal friend, I don’t care whether you’re male or female. Well, except I find men less likely to try and welch on a deal, less likely to object to making a deal where they pay. I reckon I could deal with CHS, and she’s a proper feminist.


  78. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    You haven’t counseled anything negative. The only way MGTOW can be construed as negative would be by women who believe that it is their right to have men place themselves at their disposal. It is all about men not reeding female entitlement.

    You’re right. I have to remain nonchalant about this…she hasn’t yet said how she knows. I’m just afraid of what my boss might say. He’s not a diehard feminist, but he scoffs at the idea of men’s rights.

    Gods damn it.

    Perhaps you discovered a disgusting nest of micro-willied, virgin neck beards hiding in your neighbourhood? They mentioned the term while you waited for the fembot policia (that you called as a reflex) to take them away and castrate them…Or something.

I try to be “invisible” or at least not connected to anything else.

    Bachelors have always been among us. MGTOW is a new wrinkle because it has gotten a lot more dangerous for men to bond. MGTOW is for defense.

    Well, I’m a Pagan and fundie Christians tell me I’m ebul, so as an atheist, you must be ebul too. I can totally see you as a Sith.

    I am speaking with a professional academic who is a liberal. The subject of the underrepresentation of conservatives in academia comes up. My interlocutor admits that this is indeed a reality, but says the reason why conservatives are underrepresented in academia is because they [conservatives] don’t want to be there, or they’re just not smart enough to cut it. I say: “That’s interesting. For which other underrepresented groups do you think that’s true?” An uncomfortable silence follows.

    That’s beautiful

    Oh no, my friends…we’ll be roasting marshmallows on the flames. Anyone want s’mores?


  121. Spawny Get says:

    Don’t know what a s’more is…which food group is it in : red, meat or beer?


  122. Tarnished says:

    Lol, neither. It’s in the snack foods category.

    You’ve really never had a s’more? Maybe they have a different name over there…it’s where you roast a marshmallow over a flame so it’s slightly gooey, then sandwich it and a piece of chocolate between two graham crackers. Delish!


  123. Spawny Get says:

    Sounds alright, never had one.

    How do you pronounce ‘Graham’ (a name in the UK too)? To me it’s “Gray’am” but I suspect you lot pronounce it ‘Gram’


  124. Spawny Get says:

    “neither” I listed all three food groups, what’s all this ‘neither’? Red, Meat and Beer. Everything for a healthy male.

    Many carbohydrates it does have.

    In 4 + decades of being a Christain Fundamentalist I have never heard anyone refer to pagans, catholics, atheists etc as evil for merely being pagan, catholic, atheists etc.etc


  131. Tarnished says:

    You mean from the pulpit, or just in an encounter between 2 random people?

    When I was a Christian (Catholic church with my mother, born again church with my father) I only heard the terms “lost” or “need saving” or “led astray” to describe atheists/Jews/Pagans/etc. The church leaders never directly said “these people are evil” just that we should minister to them, but not become friends until they accepted X religion.

    The “you’re ebul” stuff comes from normal, everyday people. And thankfully not a lot, just every once in a while. If I lived in the bible belt, that might be different.


  132. sfcton says:

    I am in the Bible belt. That kind of thing is more of a yankee trait (on any topic) then Southron. You implied Christian Fundamentalists called pagans and atheists evil. Now you are backing away from your statement


  133. Tarnished says:

    Lol. There are Christian Fundamentalists in areas other than the bible belt. Probably not as many, but to say there’s none is incorrect.

    Maybe the ones I’ve met are more open to calling out other faiths out because they’re Yanks, and thus aren’t tempered by the southern attitudes/niceties.


  134. sfcton says:

    That last bit is my point; that hollier then now pass judgement like you breathe thing is a yankee deal. In the South we mind our own business. Which bites us in the ass all.the time but is what it is


  135. Tarnished says:

    As I live in the northeast, Yanks are the only ones I have ever dealt with. That does explain quite a bit…

    How does minding your own business come back to bite you? I’m interested in what your experiences are, as I’ve only ever visited the south for short periods of time.


  136. sfcton says:

    On the national/ political level. We mind out business yankees and the left cost want everyone to bow to their will

    @ the local level when yankees move here and want to change us and our ways vs fitting in

    The clash between north and South go back to the very beginning of the country with the yankees wanting a large in your face governing system right from the start. Think federalists vs anti federalists.


  137. Tarnished says:

    Are there many Yanks by you?

    “Kangaroo courts, speech codes, racial discrimination: I suspect that some older readers cannot believe that such practices have become standard operating procedure at American colleges and universities — indeed, the major focus of many of the administrators who now outnumber teachers on the nation’s campuses.”

    For years I’ve suspected it and someone has come out and said it: administrators now outnumber teachers on campuses. Next thing I expect to be confirmed in the future: the great majority of administrators are female. Mark my words.
