Lettin’ George Do It


Several decades ago, there was a common phrase used to chide those whose sense of civic duty was lacking. Such people tended to be quite vocal about the ailments of their society, but weren’t about to lift a finger to actually DO something about them. They preferred to Let George Do It.

While such complacency isn’t as common in the same manner as back then, there remains enough of this laziness to demonstrate that the revival of this phrase might be timely.

Over in the UK, as colleges are doing in the US, mandatory sexual consent workshops -known as “Yes Means Yes” classes for simpler-minded Yanks- are held, and have produced a response which is both brilliant and simple.

A second-year politics and sociology student at Warwick University named George Lawlor “dared to question the effectiveness of sexual consent workshops run on his campus.”

Lawlor blogged that “he was offended by the invitation to attend since the vast majority of men ‘don’t have to be taught not to be a rapist’. ” He also opined that “every workshop would ‘just be an echo chamber of people pointing out the obvious and others nodding’.

Based on my limited experience with such things, I dare say he’s likely more correct than not. Those who sit on these committees -constituted to make up the reasons for such things- are only doing them for their own self-aggrandizement. These “leaders” have discovered a problem which needs them to ensure there is no solution, and as any sailor knows, an anchor deployed from the stern ensures no forward motion. One needs to weigh the anchor and trim the sails. In this effort, Lawlor appears to be on his own.

As Oscar Wilde declared, “No good deed goes unpunished.” George Lawlor didn’t escape retribution for standing up for men in general. He was relentlessly vilified on the Internet, abused on a public bus, forced out of a bar, and even stopped attending lectures.

But what seemed to offend the SJWs was this photo George posted:

Why is it that George gets blasted for his picture, which isn’t all that different from this one:

Oh, yeah, I keep forgetting! ALL Men are rapists. In fact, women now have interrogatory tools to use to get honest men to admit they are rapists – 4 of them:

* The exact questions asked in the study were:

  • Have you ever been in a situation where you tried, but for various reasons did not succeed, in having sexual intercourse with an adult by using or threatening to use physical force (twisting their arm, holding them down, etc.) if they did not cooperate?
  • Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone, even though they did not want to, because they were too intoxicated (on alcohol or drugs) to resist your sexual advances (e.g., removing their clothes)?
  • Have you ever had sexual intercourse with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used or threatened to use physical force (twisting their arm; holding them down, etc.) if they didn’t cooperate?
  • Have you ever had oral sex with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used or threatened to use physical force (twisting their arm; holding them down, etc.) if they didn’t cooperate?

Say yes to one, and You. Are. The Father – I mean, Rapist! I would flunk this test. I never once did any of these to anyone. Not even if she wanted to role play, something I don’t like to do. I prefer keeping it real.

So – will this admission that I can’t be a rapist -because I didn’t reply in the affirmative to ANY of these dunking-stool questions- get me on the list for feminist abuse since I have now busted their “All Men Are Rapists” meme? If so, I hope to have a champion like Belinda Brown come riding to my rescue to battle the coven of witches (no derogatory offense intended toward genuine Wiccans with this characterization) seeking to separate me from my manhood:

Lawlor should be allowed to express his opinion, no matter how offensive some people find it, without ending up a pariah.

Universities are meant to be citadels of open debate, not hermetically sealed fortresses of brainwashing.

Nor should they be free of humour. With his placard, Lawlor was poking fun at that sanctimonious T-shirt campaign entitled ‘This is what a feminist looks like’, run last year by the self-appointed pressure group the Fawcett Society, attracting support from politicians such as Ed Miliband and celebrities including Benedict Cumberbatch.

But those engaged at the forefront of gender politics do not tend to appreciate people challenging their viewpoint.

One such challenge Brown raises concerns a study done at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND, which reported that one-third of respondents “would act on intentions to force a woman to sexual intercourse” if they were confident they could get away with it.”

As I said in a comment for another post, no one goes to North Dakota on purpose. For one thing, it can get to be -40F in the winter (That’s roughly the same number in Celcius). The Canadian border is an hour away, and Winnipeg is but another hour beyond that. One would have to be quite off-kilter to attend a college in a town of roughly 56,000 serving spring wheat farmers. And, where a near-by USAF base delivers hundreds of entertainment-seeking horny young men to the local bars each weekend to potentially skew the statistics of the study. After all, we’ve heard from Liz about how women feel about men in uniforms (Lucky Mike!). Can it be any different for the Flickertail females seeking that MRS degree?

But there is a worse flaw in this study. Keeping in mind the location, demographics, and geography, this study report population was a total of 73 (seventy-three) young men. Seventy-three out of almost 15,000 students in the college. One might suspect that the male population of the college would approach about half the total, and using my fingers and toes -even dropping my zipper to add additional calculation assets to the process- I still can’t make 73/15000 come close to 0.5. If I were an SJW, I’d declare that this means that 7,427 rapists are refusing to admit to their crimes.

But there is an additional problem. From the study report:

Eighty-six male college students received extra credit for
their participation. All participants were over 18 (M=21, SD=3.6) and most were juniors in college. The overwhelming majority of participants (>90%) identified as Caucasian, consistent with the general student make up at this university, and all identified as heterosexual, with prior sexual experiences.

First time I used my fingers and toes (etc.) to calculate, I was never able to make 2+2=5. So how do I make 73=86? What happened to the missing 13? Enquiring male minds want to know! I have asked for enlightenment from the study author. IF I get a response, I’ll write a sequel.

After all, there are indications that this study isn’t accurate. IF one third of males would rape, as the North Dakota study suggests, why is it that a study of sexual assault victims done at MIT found:

17 percent of female undergraduates said…they experienced unwanted sexual behaviors involving force, threat or incapacitation. But only 10 percent of those MIT women also said yes when asked if they were sexually assaulted, and just 5 percent said yes when asked if they were raped.

Pulling out my calculation assets again (look the other way if that embarrasses you!!!), I still can’t make 31% come close to equalling 17%, 10%, or 5%.

In addition, a 2002 study done at the University of Massachusetts-Boston questioned 1,882 men. Of these, 120 admitted to having committed rape or attempted rape.

Using the calculator on the computer (my pudenda can’t again rise to the challenge right now! Too Soon!), this means that approximately 6.4% of the study population can be defined as rapists. Now it may be that my batteries are in need of recharging or replacement, but that appears to be a much smaller number than ALL when it comes to men being rapists.

There is one finding of the report I’m sorry to note. Of those who admitted to raping or trying to rape, 76 reported being a repeat offender. What this means in simple terms: 4% of the apples in the barrel are rotten. Maybe irredeemably so. And that rot is extended by SJWs to all of us. When did such guilt by association and accusation without evidence become a crime?

The good news, however, is that this number proves that George Lawlor’s observation -“the vast majority of men ‘don’t have to be taught not to be a rapist’ “- is accurate. He, and not the SJWs assaulting him for speaking out in defense of male virtue, is on the side of Truth, Justice and Right.

Not that the distaff side of society will ever admit to this.

A little gem I never knew existed before I looked:

    A challenge this is,

    The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has sent a letter to the Education Department formally opposing affirmative consent, or “yes means yes,” policies at colleges and universities.

    FIRE has written against the use of yes-means-yes policies previously, as the rules define nearly all sex as rape and provide little recourse for accused students to prove their innocence.

    “Given [the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights’] repeated acknowledgment that colleges’ and universities’ implementation of Title IX should not impinge on students’ due process rights, the agency should clearly and publicly censure any consent standard — including the ‘affirmative consent’ standard — that seriously undermines an accused student’s ability to defend himself or herself in a fair hearing,” wrote FIRE’s senior program officer, Susan Kruth.

    Traumatizing it is not

    In the words of one of the panelists, fifth-year undergraduate student Nissy Aya, a young black woman, “It’s traumatizing to sit in Core classes. We are looking at history through the lens of these powerful, white men. I have no power or agency as a black woman, so where do I fit in?” Her words are worthy of analysis and response. First, they provide a fine example of how successfully universities have indoctrinated students with leftist ideas and rhetoric. For example, who, outside of academia, ever uses the word “agency” as she did? Do you ever say to anyone that you have or don’t have “agency”

    This is not trivial. When people use words or terms that are used in only one setting, it means that that setting has profoundly influenced them. In this case, the setting is a closed intellectual universe. Her use of the word “traumatizing” is also a product of indoctrination. Columbia taught this young woman to be traumatized by its own core curriculum. Some things — war, torture, and the murder of a loved one, for example — are objectively traumatizing. No one needs to be taught to be traumatized by such things. But a university curriculum that attempts to convey the finest ideas and art developed in Western culture, and often in the entire world, and which has been taught to tens of thousands of students of all backgrounds for nine decades — that should not constitute a trauma.

    The notion that she is “looking at history through the lens of these powerful, white men” means that race trumps profundity, wisdom, beauty, and excellence. Thus, Shakespeare is not first the greatest playwright we know of, but a white European (and male, to boot). Likewise Beethoven, Bach, and other Western composers did not compose what is arguably the greatest music ever composed; they, too, were first and foremost white. Whereas the Columbia core curriculum originally set out to teach the history of the West and the best art and literature that has been produced, the Left has succeeded in teaching that no art is better than any other. It has done so by substituting race, gender, and class for wisdom, beauty, and profundity — and through its doctrine of multiculturalism, which asserts that all cultures are equal.

    Your daily laugh this is,

    A group of Hamilton College (New York) students published a list of almost forty demands on Tuesday, which the group insists that the university must begin implementing within 24 hours in order to end “the inevitable tokenization of all marginalized bodies” at the school.

    The students at the New York private university collectively refer to themselves as The Movement and are demanding, for example, that white professors be “discouraged” from leading certain departments, the replacement of male/female pronouns, the erasure of Nobel Laureate Elihu Root’s name from campus, and the censorship of “opinions that further marginalizes historically oppressed communities.”

    The demands — which are riddled with grammatical errors — were issued in conjunction with a protest of “tokenism,” which the students define as “the practice of hiring, appointing, or accepting a token number of people from underrepresented groups in order to deflect criticism or comply with affirmative action rules.”

    The Movement is demanding social media application Yik Yak be “banned from the Clinton area, as it provides a platform for hate speech inflected with racism, homophobia, islamophobia, transphobia, amongst several other bigotries.” The students do not specify how they expect the private liberal arts college to ban social media applications from the entire city of Clinton, New York.

    The mob of students also demands the “permanent ban of all hate groups from campus.” The students don’t specify which groups meet their definition of “hate groups,” but the students clarify their position by stating “Freedom of speech should not and cannot be used for justification for rampant hateful language or opinions that further marginalizes historically oppressed communities.”

    Hamilton student Michael Adamo told The Daily Caller that the “demand about ‘hate groups’ seems to contain a pretty pointed attack on students involved with the Alexander Hamilton Institute and its student publication, Enquiry, of which he is the editor.

    “We’ve had our publication stolen and destroyed a few times before, so Hamilton administrators are definitely aware of some of the free speech problems going on,” Adamo said. “They try to avoid addressing them.”

    In another call for censorship, The Movement demands the Hamilton administration “begin the discussion of reducing binary-based language starting with replacing he or she with ‘they pronouns.’”

    The protest reportedly featured “200 white T-shirts with the word ‘token’ written across the chest;” the students made clear that they expected “community members who self-identify as a marginalized member of the Hamilton community to wear these shirts.”

    A Facebook event for the protest explains that “some students as well as faculty, administration, and staff are brought to campus to add to Hamilton’s diversity but then neglected without the proper resources and attention from the institution to thrive here.” In an apparent typo, the students demand “the vilification of these forgotten voices.”

    The students also demand “the active recruitment of Indigenous Faculty, Gender Nonconforming and Transgender identifying Faculty, and an increase of all Faculty of Color in the STEM fields.”
