Campus Rape Culture Myth:

Sean Hiland published on

Campus Rape Culture Explained

  • Rape culture is the idea that campus rape is systemic

  • The problem with systemic faults is that it implies either

    • Specific government policy causes it

    • Or most people are rapists, racists, etc.

  • Defacto v. dejure:  getting rid of bad laws “good”, forcing government to force people to play nice “paternalism” is bad

  • Lefts wants due process eliminated (just as they want right to privacy eliminated)

  • All rights that get in the way of social engineering must be trampled


Left will lie to achieve its objectives in this area

  • Annie Clark and Andrea Pino are activists that have appeared on all the shows. They were both students at UNC. Both claim to be victims of sexual assault, for both incidents happened off-campus

  • Annie and Andrea made a documentary for HBO called “The Hunting Ground”; both repeat the common lie told about this; a lie echoed by most of the LEFT including Hillary and prominent Senate Democrats

  • The 1 in 5 study is the result of something called the “Campus Sexual Assault Study” released in 2007  which was funded by the Justice Department (your tax dollars) but not conducted by them.  In fact the study cover page says “Opinions or points of view expressed are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official position or policies of the U.S. Department of Justice.”

  • The study is deeply flawed because of:

    • Small sample size (two college, a few hundred students)

    • Self-Selection Bias (strong opinions more likely to respond)

    • Included any conduct of a sexual nature, including kissing, while intoxicated

  • A justice department study released in 2014 debunks this myth by pointing out “The rate of rape and sexual assault was 1.2 times higher for non-students (7.6 per 1,000) than for students (6.1 per 1,000).”

  • So not only is rate 6.1 per 1,000 (that’s .6% percent not 20 - or 25%) but it is actually more common for women of the same age who are not in school


Left is going to “solve” this “crisis” with more government overreach

  • Left reacts with a proposed law called “Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA”

  • Annie Clark and Andrea Pino teamed up with Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand at Campus Accountability and Safety Act Press Conference

  • This law is bad because it:

    • Takes what should be a criminal offense and makes it campus problem

    • Will burden universities with incredibly high fees (1% of operating budget)

    • Universities will be incentivized to expel those accused with little to no evidence; 
      “She said, he said”, will become “she said so he’s expelled”
