George Will: ‘I take sexual assault more seriously’ than those trying to silence me

posted at 4:01 pm on June 20, 2014 by Noah Rothman

The conservative columnist George Will found himself in a firestorm of controversy and faced the inevitable calls from his progressive critics for his voice to be silenced after he wrote a controversial column about how colleges prosecute accusations of sexual abuse and dating violence. Both men and women are troubled by how campuses are handling cases of alleged sexual assault.

Will highlighted a growing concern among students and parents over the increasing frequency of accusations of sexual misconduct, and the appearance that the accused are often presumed guilty before being proven innocent.

“Questions about sexual assault policies in higher education have emerged as a national issue in recent years as more young women file complaints with the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights about how their cases are handled by campus administrators,” USA Today reported on Friday.

The issue has become so pressing that the Department of Education revealed new regulations on Friday designed to address those growing concerns.

“The proposals also would allow both accusers and the accused to bring an ‘advisor of their choice’ to campus disciplinary proceedings,” the USA Today report continued. “Colleges also would have to provide more information, including a list of possible sanctions, about how disciplinary cases involving sexual violence are handled.”

Though the matter of consent and what constitutes consensual sex, an issue at the heart of many disputed campus sexual assault cases, remains unaddressed in the new Education Department rules.

Writing about this issue, Will took on the sensitive subject of what constitutes consensual sex in colleges. At one point, Will recounted the testimony of one woman who said she permitted sexual intercourse with a friend, although she did not want it at the time, and reported that incident as a rape six weeks later.

“Now the Obama administration is riding to the rescue of ‘sexual assault’ victims,” Will wrote. “It vows to excavate equities from the ambiguities of the hookup culture, this cocktail of hormones, alcohol and the faux sophistication of today’s prolonged adolescence of especially privileged young adults.”

His take on the subject sparked a significant backlash.

The Washington Post needs to take a break from his column, they need to dump him,” insisted National Organization for Women president Terry o’Neill.

“Seeing the reaction and intensity of the hurt in some of social media and the reaction of women I know and talking to people who really were offended by the thought that sexual assault victims would seek some special victimhood — it helped seeing that response and it informed my opinion,” St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial page editor Tony Messenger said when asked why he decided to drop Will from his paper’s opinion pages.

On Thursday, Will spoke with C-SPAN where he was asked for his thoughts about the backlash over his column.

“This is my job,” Will said, “is when dubious statistics become the basis of dubious and dangerous abandonment of due process, to step in and say ‘Take a deep breath everybody.’”

Will contested the administration’s statistics on campus rape, which he said indicate that one in five women on American college campuses will experience sexual assault. He added that threshold to achieve a conviction against a person accused of sexual assault requires merely a “preponderance of evidence” be brought against them.

“You’re going to have charges of sexual assault, and you’re going to have young men disciplined – their lives often permanently and seriously blighted because of this,” Will said, “And you’re going to have litigation of tremendous expense as young men sue the colleges for damages done to them by abandonment of the rules of due process that we have as a society evolved over many centuries.”

When asked to respond to one critic who accused Will of trivializing the crime of sexual assault, the conservative columnist said he takes sexual assault more seriously than his critics do. “When someone’s accused of rape, it should be reported to the criminal justice system that knows how to deal with this, not with jerrybuilt, improvised campus processes,” he asserted.

Will went on to dismiss those for whom he said “indignation is default position.” He added that the outrage over his column will, like “summer storms,” dissipate as rapidly as it arose. In conclusion, the columnist said that he would not take one word of his column back if he had the chance.

Will highlighted a growing concern among students and parents over the increasing frequency of accusations of sexual misconduct, and the appearance that the accused are often presumed guilty before being proven innocent.

This mentality is the problem. In a free country, one accused of a crime does not need to prove he or she didn’t do it; the prosecutor must prove he or she DID do it.

More like the accused are presumed guilty before being proven GUILTY.

At ASU in the late 70s and early 80s, there were issues with rapes perpetrated by a couple of football team members being swept under the rug by the administration and even the college campus cops.

So there probably was/is a need for tighter controls but of course once granted power, people tend to concentrate and expand it To Infinity and Beyond!

The war on men continues on the campus. 60% of the population of most colleges are female. The perpetually pissed off feminists won’t be satisfied until men are driven completely off campus.

It’s not about sexual assault.

It’s about preserving the “war on women” trope that is the Democrats’ last argument to keep one of their main constituencies, single women, coming out to vote for their failed ideas.

õ¿õ

If it were true that 20% of college women are raped, it would mean rape is 40,000 times more common than in the country as a whole, where the rate is less than one in 200,000. Parents would be driving to campuses to withdraw their daughters, and with good reasons.

Instead, parents should encourage their sons to join the military or choose an online school to avoid putting themselves at risk of false accusations with no due process protections.

The entire basis of this whole controversy is the BS study that claimed “1 in 5 women would be the victim or near-victim of sexual assault in their 4 years in college”.

How you know its complete BS is by the fact that the study decided who was or wasn’t a victim of sexual assault. In fact, nearly HALF of the women this study claimed were “victims” actually had sex with the same person who would have allegedly assaulted them – AGAIN afterwards.

You tell me, how many ACTUAL victims or near-victims of sexual assault have sex with that same person again ? That number is infinitesimally small.

It’s not an appearance, it’s a fact.

It is rape if and when SHE says it is. I’ve spent enough time as a college student to know the system is well stacked against the men. The ONLY way to keep themselves safe is to not have sex at all. Unreasonable? Maybe. But as more and more men find themselves the victims of false accusations and kangaroo courts, I hope more and more get the message that an unwise choice in partner can destroy there life, no matter what physical “precautions” they may take.

A birth rate of 1.2. And a major market for pet food.

Darwin would be proud.

To be sure. It is all so over the top anymore.

Yeah. Women are largely out of control and men are being trained to be as feminine as society can make them. When they reject that indoctrination, they tend towards violence and women tend towards promiscuity.

What could go wrong?

“When someone’s accused of rape, it should be reported to the criminal justice system that knows how to deal with this, not with jerrybuilt, improvised campus processes,” he asserted.

But….but….but…all those OUTRAGED campus administrators and females frothing at the mouth for “sexual justice” would lose POWER!

Besides, EVERYONE KNOWS the males are guilty.

NOW GET A ROPE!

Even if they aren’t personally guilty, they still deserve punishment for centuries of male domination over women.

It was condescending as hell when you read the twitter comment he posted there.

Sorry to make this entry so late Barred. I was distracted by the birds. Criticism is not a one way street. This place has been after Noah pretty good in the comment section over the course of the last few. Make no mistake. I do not defend nor speak for Noah. He is capable of doing that which is his best interest all on his own. Just thought I might give you my take. ; )

It seems that people are just becoming oblivious to bait-and-switch techniques used by those with political agendas. If you are not for the “right” of a woman to call anything “rape” that doesn’t totally sit well with her after the fact, then you’re for “sexual assault” — actual assault.

And it seems that over the years, eaters at the media trough have fully accepted the “disarmed sex” theory.

Instead, parents should encourage their sons to join the military or choose an online school to avoid putting themselves at risk of false accusations with no due process protections.

Unless you hate your son, never encourage him to join the military. It’s a cesspool these days.
