Who should have the right to define rape: survivors who have experienced sexual violence or those who are accused of perpetrating it?
This is also good:
Of course, being accused of sexual assault hurts. And there are things that we can and should do to help accused students — namely, providing them with psychological counsel. But accused men’s pain does not excuse rape, and men shouldn’t be the ones defining it. Most rapists, even those who have been criminally convicted, will never label themselves as such. More broadly, there is a tendency on the part of college-age men to define sexual assault according to their own standards, not according to campus guidelines.
You’ve borrowed $150k to go to atop college, you’re 3 months away from the brass ring of an Ivy League degree, you’re falsely accused of sexual assault and thrown out.
What’s on offer is counselling, not an actual defence.
