The G, where else, complaining about De Vos and her insistence that campus rape should actually be dealt with according to the law. Evidence, witnesses, investigation, trial, shadow of doubt stuff, all that.
The G is against all of this of course.
She didn’t talk about the fact that according to US Department of Justice reports, an estimated 19% of college-age women will suffer attempted or completed sexual assault, but that only 12% of those cases ever get reported – or that only between two and 10% of campus sexual assault accusations are actually false, per the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. Those aren’t the victims she seems to care about.
It did take us rather a long time to work out a system which, for all its faults, tries to sort through those claims to find those 2 to 10% which are false. The one that works as best as any system can is evidence, witnesses, investigation, trial, shadow of doubt stuff, all that.
Exactly the same system we use in fact when attempting to decide whether someone has made a false allegation that we’d like to punish.
We generally refer to all of this as civil rights.
But it’s a curious set of sympathies indeed for a department of government whose purpose is to enforce civil rights.
What’s curious about the people hoping to enforce civil rights enforcing civil rights?
