I assume they need that extra money to fight off all the bears that regularly attack campuses throughout this great nation.

Well let's be honest -- any woman who decides to get a higher education is pretty much just asking to be raped.

They have some fundamental problem with all the good things we've accomplished as a society, all the progress we've made.

Did it come from the Obama administration?
Does it help people?
Does it attempt to make the world a better place?

If you answered yes to any of these questions....

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos may decide to slash funding to enforcement of Title IX in public schools, according to a BuzzFeed report.

DeVos is scheduled to make a major announcement at George Mason's Antonin Scalia Law School, which insiders believe will be about ending programs from former Barack Obama's administration that worked to eradicate campus sexual assault.

This is what happens when you put someone in charge of the Department of Education who believes that schools only exist to make money.

Ivanka Trump: "Loved meeting with this dynamic group of girls during their tour of the White House today. You are our country's #NextGeneration of leaders!"

Yep.  And maybe one day they will be born wealthy with life handed to them on a silver platter with extra fixin's so they can get into that leadership position.

Hopefully, if they are in a leadership position of influence to where they can have an impact something relatively significant, they actually *do* something for the betterment of other Americans....unlike *you*.

Really... When was the exact moment that the GOP became the pro-Rape party? Was it the Anita Hill hearings?

Because I'm more than sure that at one point in our recent history, even the GOP wouldn't attempt something this craven with such bad optics.

Clery Act was a windfall for Paul Blart campus cops but of course honest men blink..especially when gifted dodge chargers as campus patrol cars..so you get rapes and fancy rentacops
DeVos is horrible for messing with it
Everyone will have to refer to High Times and sheriff crime blotters instead to find out where the party schools are

I don't know if these rules cost a lot to implement, but I think we can all agree that removing them will free up the economy to start printing money, lifting up the best, brightest and whitest dudebros to really start #MAGA.

There's a bunch of insincere hand-wringing among the totally-not-MRA crowd about 'false accusations', which happen so rarely they're barely worth mentioning.  Mainly they just want guys to be able to get away with whatever they want.
 
2017-09-06 02:40:55 PM  
Some of those rapists are very fine people. If women didn't go around being female, they wouldn't rape them. There's blame on both sides.

Bleh, I need a shower after that kind of snark. The worst part is that the most ridiculous possible statements we could imagine are getting terrifyingly close to what they actually say or do in public. They're outpacing the worst things you could think of them saying or doing.

I think the spin on this is completely remove Title IX because it takes away too much money from real sports (men's athletics).

Because honestly, the end-goal isn't removing the addition here, the end-goal is to remove this altogether.
 
2017-09-06 02:45:12 PM  
So this wasn't a law, or even an executive order, it was just a letter that outlined a procedure for dealing with sexual assaults on campuses.  A suggestion, as it were.. tacked on to a 40 year old anti-discrimination act.  While I agree that college campuses should be taking sexual assaults very seriously and doing everything in their power to protect students, I agree that this particular directive is pretty out of line.  Well meaning, sure, but poorly executed.

Yeah, like I said, it's hardly the epidemic the people who are (((concerned))) about this issue make it out to be.

Here's the deal. You get to remove this "nuisance" law, but we get to have 2 hours to have unlimited kicks to the balls of all the Brock Turners who get caught raping women. None of this six months of parole thing.

It was a threat.

WSJ calls out Obama's evisceration of due process on college campuses

Earlier this year, the Education and Justice Departments started issuing new guidance for colleges and universities on how to respond to accusations of campus sexual assault and harassment.

Previous letters gave us the low "preponderance of evidence" standard of proof without meaningful due process attached, and the threat of funding losses if a school doesn't adequately comply. The marching orders from Washington have thus far been: "Find the accused responsible, or else."

Let the actual police handle sexual assault cases instead of academic administrators.  Not that the police actually handle sexual assault well, though that's a completely different subject and needs to be addressed as well, but they are far better trained for it than a group of college professors and career administrators.  Plus there's the issue of due process and rights of the accused that gets ignored in most campus sexual assault "investigations".

The primary mission of many universities is to have the best minor league professional football and basketball teams they can.

Without actually paying the players.

Well, more rapes, more poverty, more hunger, more poison in our seas/land/air, more racism, more fundamentalist religious bullshiat, more teen pregnancy, etc.... these are things Republicans actually want.

I mean they keep voting for them. They say they're not, but they are... those denials are ringing pretty goddamn hollow right about now. So this should be no surprise. It's what they tell us they want with their actions.

Police are the watchers and the doers. They are not the thinkers of the system. They are not the judges. They are not public opinion.
