The War on Men on Campus: Kangaroo Courts and Angry Feminists Await
Over at College Insurrection , Professor Jacobson explains why men are staying away from the college campus:
The media often wonders why young men are staying away from universities and colleges. Perhaps the hostile environment on campuses is part of the reason.
Universities, protected by law and compelled by a directive from the Obama Department of Education, have established a kangaroo campus court system in which young men regularly face life-changing quasi-judicial proceedings based on accusations of sexual misconduct at which they have little due process protection.
At College Insurrection we highlighted one such case at Brown University, University without shame: How Brown betrayed one of its students.
But these cases take place regularly as documented by The FIRE organization.
Jacobson makes a good point: "On campuses, there is a very real war on men, but few seem to care."
This is an important point that needs to be explored. Men on campus are afraid to speak up and with good reason. Even Warren Farrell, author of The Myth of Male Power was stifled by radical feminists at the University of Toronto when trying to talk about men's rights.
When I was speaking to men about college for my book, I found that many did not want their names used and were afraid that there would be repercussions if their identity was known. I use the word afraid because that is what it is. Men don't want to think of themselves as fearful, many deny that anything is happening and don't feel the need to fight back. Instead, they stick their head in the sand and call this "bravery" or "not wanting to seem like a victim." But they are victims of kangaroo courts and angry feminists regardless of their denial.
The discrimination will continue because there is no push back. If 5-10 percent of men fought back, stood up and started realizing that men's rights are human rights and that they are not victims for daring to believe that their voices in gender and reproductive equality are just as important as a woman's is, then maybe things will start to change. Until then, the kangaroo courts and angry feminists will have their day.
