A bit of Good News on Campus Feminism

I saw this tweet from RS McCain today:

In fact what the young lady had to say was so obvi­ous that one won­ders why it would need to be said aloud.

If we don’t give col­leges the power to put the accused on trial and con­vict crim­i­nals for mur­der, why do we give them the power to do so for cases of sex­ual assault? It makes absolutely no sense at all, and vio­lates the very con­sti­tu­tional rights that our nation was built on.

Given the amount of time he has taken study­ing the insan­ity that is gen­der stud­ies and fem­i­nist tum­bler that para­graph must have been a pleasure

I refuse to call myself a fem­i­nist who needs to accuse men of rape when­ever I wake up next to a stranger and real­ize I got too drunk and made a poor deci­sion out of MY OWN POOR JUDG­MENT to quell my regret and self-​confidence issues. Instead, I iden­tify as an inde­pen­dent woman who empow­ers her­self by tak­ing respon­si­bil­ity for my own actions, whether good or bad, and doesn’t need a bogus social move­ment like mod­ern fem­i­nism to feel like I am wor­thy of being equal to men.

All of this is good news but this part is bet­ter news:

Per­haps the most inter­est­ing aspect of this assign­ment came after the stu­dent turned it in. Instead of admon­ish­ing the stu­dent, the grad­u­ate stu­dent instruc­tor was appre­cia­tive of her counter view­point. The instruc­tor com­mended the stu­dent for not believ­ing every­thing she hears and for pro­vid­ing a dif­fer­ent take.

That’s a good sign, of course it would be a bet­ter sign if she didn’t have to be anonymous.

Clos­ing thought Mark Steyn reports that this prob­lem isn’t just an amer­i­can problem:

In fact what the young lady had to say was so obvious that one wonders why it would need to be said aloud.

If we don’t give colleges the power to put the accused on trial and convict criminals for murder, why do we give them the power to do so for cases of sexual assault? It makes absolutely no sense at all, and violates the very constitutional rights that our nation was built on.

Given the amount of time he has taken studying the insanity that is gender studies and feminist tumbler that paragraph must have been a pleasure

I refuse to call myself a feminist who needs to accuse men of rape whenever I wake up next to a stranger and realize I got too drunk and made a poor decision out of MY OWN POOR JUDGMENT to quell my regret and self-confidence issues. Instead, I identify as an independent woman who empowers herself by taking responsibility for my own actions, whether good or bad, and doesn’t need a bogus social movement like modern feminism to feel like I am worthy of being equal to men.

All of this is good news but this part is better news:

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this assignment came after the student turned it in. Instead of admonishing the student, the graduate student instructor was appreciative of her counter viewpoint. The instructor commended the student for not believing everything she hears and for providing a different take.

That’s a good sign, of course it would be a better sign if she didn’t have to be anonymous.
