What modern feminists don’t want you to know about domestic violence
For the first time in America, single adults outnumber the married. However, despite the decline in marriage rates, new data from the Pew Research Center found that 53 percent of those adults who have never married still plan to, and an additiona…

Until feminism recognizes discrimination against men, the movement for gender equality will be incomplete.

Isn’t it amazing in this world how old issues, long thought irrelevant, always seem to creep back up reminding you why they were an issue to begin with.
another issue of corruption that will be swept under the rug. she should be fired but doubt she will.
Mainstream media may be pointing a very biased view on #GamerGate and the people involved in it, but gamers from all over the world have come together in a mixing pot of inclusion, acceptance and a fight against the corruption currently plaguing games media. They did so with a video called We Are Gamers.
Been keeping up on the corruption and tired of people who want victim hood rather then solutions and will anything to keep it even Harass and prevent The Fine Young Capitalist ACTUAL feminist from helping women create games by having your friend black list them for no reason to further your own political agenda. #not your shield # Gamer Gate
One of the last few second wave feminst left trying to salvage the efforts of factual based feminism that use to be the standard in the united state till scare tactics and misinformation became the norm.
MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS — A Columbia Universitystudent said she’ll carry a dorm room mattress with her everyone she goes to protest the presence of her alleged rapist on campus and as a performance art piece meant to spark debate.
Emma Sulkowicz, 21, one of the more vocal opponents in an ongoing student-led battle with the administration over its rape and sexual assault policies, made her protest even more visible Tuesday, with the launch of her mattress-carrying project on her first day back at school.
Now in her senior year, Sulkowicz was raped two years ago by a male student in her class who was found not guilty by the university and was allowed to remain on campus, she said. She’ll continue to carry the mattress until he’s suspended or expelled, she said.
"I was raped in my own dorm bed…The reason why it’s such a powerful image for me is that’s where I was attacked. It’s about carrying the weight of what happened there on my back,” she said of carting the long thin mattress around. Her protest was first reported by the Columbia Spectator.
Sulkowicz purchased the mattress from the same company the university uses and will carry it with her as long as her rapist is on campus, depositing it back in her campus art studio whenever she heads off Columbia grounds.
This is the B-side of college campus rape policies. Instead of taking these cases to the criminal courts where they belong, the colleges try to handle this in-house.
In many cases it is an enforcement of their rape hysteria policy in which any man who is accused gets put to the “he could have done it” test and if he fails, whether he’s innocent or not, he’s kicked out. But the woman, if he is guilty, doesn’t get real justice: prison time for the rapist. This institutionalized misandry hurts the womenfolk here, too.
But then there are cases like this: where the accuser didn’t even get to see the alleged rapist tried in the college kangaroo courts. They just ignored her, and she’s left to pursue justice in this shameful (moreso for the institution than her) manner.
The solution for all of this is simple: when a rape charge is filed, it must automatically go to criminal court. Due process must prevail, or we get tragedies like this.
People who are raped on college campuses should go to the local police force before going to the authorities on your campus; even if you go to one of the larger college campus with their own police force (I don’t mean campus security guards). College campuses have a reason to want to keep campus crime reports in house because no matter how well or poorly they handle the situation, campus crime is bad advertising.
Campus politics trying to get in the way of justice just to keep their popularity up. Pathetic.
The amount of red tape you have to go through to involve municipal police departments when there is a crime is astounding. It is very much about maintaining image because college campuses are a business first. They care more about public relations than they care about students or the people who work there. In one of my higher ed administration courses, the professor overheard me talking about the time detectives came to ask me and my students about one of their classmates who assaulted the lab coordinator. We literally spent 4 hours talking about how much bullshit went into allowing the municipal law enforcement to get involved enough to talk to graduate and undergraduate students. It was a once a month all afternoon Friday and all day Saturday or weekend course so literally 4 hours straight of being lectured about how to properly handle if a student assaults you. I imagine there are entire courses on what to do if a student is assaulted. Then he asked if we needed him to bring in a lawyer to discuss the issue further. Even if the others thought it was bullshit and had questions, the first 4 hours was exhausting enough. I kind of regretted opening my mouth, but my classmate had a question about one of her students that was relative to the story I told. tl/dr Something needs to change so that crime, and the investigation of crime is more transparent. You should not have to have a course or read a manual to understand the policy of how a crime gets REPORTED from the campus police to the municipal police. If you are a student on a college campus and you are assaulted, go to the municipal authorities first or deal with the shit ton of red tape.
For the people asking about whether we should just believe the woman carrying around a mattress; no one (at least neither I nor the OP) are saying she should just be believed. We are saying that the process shouldn’t be cloak and dagger. Students should know what to do if they are accused, or if they are assaulted. The process should be fair and the same for all students. The accused and accuser should both know their rights; when it comes to rape on campus, it is completely unclear, especially if you are accussed. It can be interpreted in too many ways. Beyond that we are talking about assault/ sexual assault. Those are both felonies. There is 0 reason for a college campus to handle a felony case in house. “Petty” campus crimes (noise, pranks, theft under a certain amount) should absolutely be handled in house. Rape and other assaults should be handled by the city. tl/dr. If you are assaulted on a college campus and you are a student, go to the city police. If you work for them, tell your higher up that you understand the process, but you are reporting it to the police yourself.
God bless this post.

there’s needs to be more projects like this. actually making a difference and not blaming other people hoping they fix their problems for them.
