Okay, guys. Joke’s over. Let me out. Um… guys?
Colleges are not courts
“One’s crazy as a loon, I don’t believe the other one.”
Remind me again why colleges are handling rape cases and not the police?
“The committee should hear her voice.”
“I had never met anyone that I couldn’t handle… until Harvey Weinstein.”
Some people have forgotten what Title IX actually is
“This is enough. I want my city back.”
Someone’s feelings are hurt
“The misconduct included sexual and physical assault and multiple instances of rape…”
“It’s a tough day.”
Yeah, you might want to rethink that one…
Painful but necessary
“We are looking at a problem on the scale of the Catholic Church — if not bigger.”
“…very confident these are solid and actionable cases.”
Evening the odds
Retribution vs rehabilitation
“We know the difference between a rapist, a workplace harasser, and an Aziz Ansari.”
“I cried the whole ride home. At that point I felt violated. That last hour was so out of my hand.”
“…told his friend to fire up his cell phone and shoot video of what was about to happen.”
Now it can be told.
“He said to me, `Do you really want to continue working?'”
“She mentally deteriorated instantly.”
“He then told Cesar that no one would believe him if he ever reported the incident.”
How did we not think of that before?
