The victims are not taken seriously

...

2

Q: “more survivors than ever are reporting their sexual assaults to their universities shouldn't lead us to the conclusion that more college students are being raped or that more students are lying--just that more feel comfortable coming forward.”

Citation unavailable.

3

Q: “Finally, trauma can make survivors seem disorganized to campus administrators who are untrained.”

Citation unavailable.

4

P:The scarce evidence is based upon the survivor. Making sexual acts hard to comprehend if they were violent or not. Because evidence is hard to see many cases go without discipline, all because evidence does not provide what the campus acknowledges as rape.

Citation unavailable.

5

P:Victims are put on trial. In trial they guilt the victims. They ask why go back to the dorm? What did you think would happen if you were drunk? If you had previously consented with another guy she just met, wouldn’t she consent with his friends later?

6

S:Even though there are substantial numbers of sexual misconduct, campuses still show little acknowledgement towards safety of students. Men and women who try reporting are not taken seriously. Lack of “believable” evidence or side effects that make them seem disorganized, lower the chance for justice.

Injustice of “Rape culture”

...

Q:“rape culture condones physical and emotional terrorism against women as the norm."

Young, Cathy. "The Injustice of the 'Rape-Culture' Theory." Commentary, Oct. 2017, pp. 26-30. SIRS Issues Researcher, https://sks.sirs.com.

9

S:The phrase “Rape culture” is often tossed around and the definition becomes jumbled. Throughout the years it is noted within feminist books. The one thing shared between them all is the fear from harassment.

10

S: Within rape culture there is not a clear line. But there are definite things to classify as “Rape culture.” Unwanted sexual remarks, groping, and actual rape are definitely within the lines.

11

P: Only pieces of feminist activism have given light to the idea of rape culture within North America and Western Europe. However recent years have made it into the mainstream. It is dated all the way back to the 1970s.

12

P: Under the light of the recent mainstream the phrase rape culture has been brought up. But what defines rape culture? Rape culture is presumed to be physical and emotional terrorism more towards women caused by men.

Q: “In recent years many institutions of higher learning have begun handling rape allegations themselves rather than allowing law enforcement to investigate them.”

15

Q:”Witness intimidation in criminal cases usually calls to mind organized-crime bosses trying to conceal their guilt. In campus Title IX proceedings, however, a different kind of mob exacts a social and professional price from witnesses who defend the accused.”

16

P: After the Department of education released a letter titled, “Dear colleague” campuses have taken a new approach. This approach is supposed to be more direct to save money. The way they save the money is by handling their own rape cases instead of involving real authority.

17

S: Because of new approaches on campus reporting of rape cases are not handled correctly. Instead of ensuring safety of students, campuses are going the cheap route. The route leaves victims without justice for real crimes.

18

S: Defenders of the accused are often put under pressure for concealing guilt of the accused. Although only 2% of rape cases turn out to be fraud, these defenders are payed more than any other to try and help the higher power of the accused.
