THE NEW REPUBLIC: Accused College Rapists Have Rights, Too; The victims deserve justice. The men deserve due process.

Of course, failing to recognize that accusers aren’t the same as “victims,” and that perpetrators aren’t always “men,” is sexist too. The tendency to accuse men, but give women a pass, is a legacy of a time when the definition of rape was based on physical force. Now that the definition of rape has broadened, women are just as likely to be guilty as men. The fact that comparatively few women are charged in college sexual assault is itself evidence of institutional sexism that creates a hostile environment for men.
