Skip to comments.Judith Grossman: A Mother, a Feminist, Aghast
Posted on 04/17/2013 9:00:13 AM PDT by BlueStateRightist
I am a feminist. I have marched at the barricades, subscribed to Ms. magazine, and knocked on many a door in support of progressive candidates committed to women's rights. Until a month ago, I would have expressed unqualified support for Title IX and for the Violence Against Women Act.
But that was before my son, a senior at a small liberal-arts college in New England, was chargedby an ex-girlfriendwith alleged acts of "nonconsensual sex" that supposedly occurred during the course of their relationship a few years earlier.

I think the word Ms. Grossman is looking for is KARMA.
One of the two who didn't changed his ways and finally found the right girl in his fifties. The other who didn't. married a witch with an attractive paint job who drove him into an early grave.
It is the best advice a mama can give her boys.
A conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged. Her family is getting mugged.
Most unwitting supporters of NWO don’t know that NWO sucks.
Until the impact of NWO statism/corruption/immorality wacks them upside the head.
Judith likes the immoral laws that have been passed in the US and the eroding of the morality of our legal system. Just not when they start affecting her family.
Some animals are more equal than others. She didn’t mind when it was other males who were guilty by a preponderance of evidence until proven innocent, had no right to counsel and no right to confront accusers or even to know the exact charges. It became wrong when it was her own son being railroaded. She disgusts me. I’m glad he got off on the charges, but a decent person would be offended by the system when other people were the victims, rather than only when a family member gets caught in that web.
Liberals don’t like the constitution until they actually need it.
And the years of bashing the white man has finally caught up to one of their own.
My sister in law is nurse. She and I got the boys together and I gave them the lecture about child support and that they should never assume a woman is telling them the truth about birth control and my SIL gave them the lecture about STDs. Amazing that any of them reproduced. Actually, of the six, only two have so far. hmm.
You are exactly right. Had it not been her son she would have been on the side of the girl.
Next week she will be back on the side of the girl.
These people are incurable.
Men get screwed daily by judges and lawyers when they face divorce court.
A friends wife took two years cleaning out every dime in his bank account —around $250,000 dollars before she left him.
Now she will get half of his home and half of his pension.
It doesn’t matter how much she got while livng with him, she is still entitled to half after she is gomne.
If you are a male in college, the easiest course is to have nothing to do with the women there. You will have plenty of time when you get out into the real world.
More like cubed, if you ask me. I'm growing weary of anecdotal stories from those professing to be "good liberals". This is the society that they wrought, so she should learn to deal with it, and sacrifice her son to the altar of the government.
Think she's ready to read Atlas Shrugged? I would direct her to the trial of Henry Rearden.
Still, I find it difficult to suppress a feeling of schadenfreude when a PC leftist gets bit on the ass by a policy of their own making (tee hee).
they believe in their own inherent ability to make ad hoc “decisions” in each situation,
regardless of any set of rules they previously held or applied in another situation.
I know lots of progressives like Grossman. They are careful to tell their kids all about condoms, STD’s, protecting oneself, and collective, human rights - but never talk about responsibility, honor or morality. That stuff borders on “religious” and is a no-no.
It is exactly as Mark Steyn write recently regarding the effect of the attack on marriage has on society, but it applies just as equally to “Title IX,” Obamacare, or any other Leftist social-engineering scheme.
Grossman is a leftist elitist (and lawyer) so she will still live in her nice suburb, send her kids to the proper schools, and find a way for herself and those near her to survive the destruction she and other progressives have brought on society. Meanwhile, millions below her won’t have the same money, connections or ability.
I fear that in the current climate the goal of "women's rights," with the compliance of politically motivated government policy and the tacit complicity of college administrators, runs the risk of grounding our most cherished institutions in a veritable snake pit of injusticenot unlike the very injustices the movement itself has for so long sought to correct.
It was never about equality. It was always about revenge. The author had to wait until it became personal to realize how vicious the thing is, was, and will be for the foreseeable future.
I made myself somewhat unpopular on campus by simply observing that women here are a privileged majority - they outnumber men, they have a Women's Center, a Women's Gym, Women's programs, women's scholarships, an entire academic department; none of these have any counterparts for men, and the old saw that they aren't needed because men already dominate just isn't cutting it anymore. I stated that I will once again become a donor when this is remediated, safe in the knowledge that it never will be.
Another example of the academic gulag at work. College campus’ are a hostile environment to males.
Thank God I went to college in the 60s at the start of the sexual revolution. I was proud to do my part to liberate women.
So how do you like choking on your own feces, Judith?
Another one who can’t believe she will be on the trains with the rest of us. Lady, you will not be protected; so why continue to believe liars who will bring you down and destroy you? Your only hope is to stand up against the people who seek to take your real freedom.
