The Women’s Center and the Dean of Students Office are now suggesting there has been a decline in true accusations of rape. In reality, there has been a decline in false accusations of rape because women who are prone to lie about rape now realize that certain consequences attach to their actions. In other words, false accusations of rape can be followed by humiliation in the court of public opinion, litigation in the courts of law, or both.
If the Duke feminists were truly concerned about rape – as opposed to gender politics – they would begin to police members of their own administration. Over the summer, administrator Frank Lombard (white but, fortunately for him, gay) was arrested after sexually assaulting his adopted black child on a webcam and then broadcasting it to another pedophile on the internet. He also offered his child to be raped by a stranger he met on the internet.
I’m supposed to note that Duke administrator Frank Lombard is only an “alleged” rapist who enjoys the benefit of the presumption of innocence. But administrators at Duke don’t believe in the presumption of innocence so we’ll just call him a rapist instead.
Regardless, feminists at Duke are unlikely to read anything about Frank Lombard. He gets a pass because he’s gay. And his victim wasn’t a woman. And talking about his case won’t help increase funding for the Duke Women’s Center.
The new policies at Duke University show just how manipulative and cunning campus feminists can be. But they don’t prove these characteristics are directly correlated with IQ or, for that matter, any interest in pursuing the truth. The evidence, if anything, leads to the opposite conclusion.
