    A century-old tradition at Stanford University — in which upperclassmen track down freshman students and kiss them — is being toned down this year in the wake of the #MeToo and “Time’s Up” movements, according to organizers. Several changes have been made to the annual “Full Moon on the Quad” event, which is sanctioned by the school and scheduled to take place on campus Wednesday night. Instead of kissing, officials asked students to exchange white roses and “gratitude cards” — along with phone numbers for a possible first date, The Stanford Daily reports.

    Women are more likely to have been sexually assaulted by the age of 44 if they didn’t go to college, according to a new study from the University of Michigan. The study, spearheaded by sociology professor and researcher William Axinn, found that the risk of “experiencing forced intercourse” is more than 2.5 times greater for women who’ve attended little or no college. After more than six years’ intense focus on a purported campus rape crisis, Axinn’s study exposes the Obama administration’s Title IX regime for the elitist and politically-motivated overcorrection it was. Axinn and his team analyzed data from the...
  • Op-ed: Harvard student publicly confesses to discussing attractiveness of women

    A Harvard student recently made a bold public declaration, admitting that, while at a bar with friends one time, he talked about the attractiveness of the women in his class. Daniel Hanrahan, a master’s student in Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, wrote in The Harvard Crimson this week that “the Harvard community is responsible for sexual assault.” Hanrahan notes that, while the men who sexually assault women are ultimately the ones responsible for their crimes, we should also not ignore “the behavior of people not directly involved in sexual assaults.” It is up to bystanders, Hanrahan writes,...
  • Male students 'uncomfortable' on Texas campuses, education official says

    Outnumbered male college students in Texas have created a sharp gender gap in statewide completion rates – and, according to the state’s higher education commissioner, a campus cultural problem for men. “We’re getting to the point where males feel uncomfortable on some college campuses,” said Raymund Paredes, who leads Texas’ higher education coordinating board. Paredes spoke Thursday at the University of Houston System’s board meeting to address progress toward broader statewide goals of having 60 percent of young adults in Texas earn a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2030. He identified several target populations that are lagging in achieving those...

    The Boy Scouts of America announced on Wednesday that girls will soon be allowed to become Cub Scouts and to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor. "We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children," said Michael Surbaugh, chief executive of the Boy Scouts. The scouting board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change in an organization that has been primarily for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago.

    An Arizona State University professor was distressed to discover in a recent study that her female peers do not desire "the stigma of extreme weight gain.” Professor Breanne Fahs, a self-described “fat woman,” recently published an article in the Women’s Studies International Forum in which she declared that “the fear of fatness is far more extreme, exaggerated, and terrible than the lived realities of living in a fat body.”

    Male students who talk too much in class are oppressing their female peers, a Wesleyan University student contends in a recent op-ed. Tara Joy, a freshman who came to Wesleyan from an all-girls high school, writes in The Wesleyan Argus about how the excitement of her first year of college was dashed by the realization that some of the men in her classes “talked constantly.”

    What you end up with when the moral barriers topple is, not least, the end of due process at American colleges and universities. It's a dreadful prospect you likely wouldn't imagine without having scanned some of the stories on the rape crisis said to be spreading across American campuses. Supposedly, college women are at immense and growing risk of assault by males who take advantage of opportunity and superior strength to "have their way," as the old euphemism had it. Naturally, the claims have invited federal attention. (Everything seems, these days, to invite federal attention.) The respected investigative reporter Stuart...

    Campus feminists whipped up a Category-5 frenzy over sexual assault allegations at a Northwestern University fraternity in February. But last week, the school's Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin was forced to muster up her best impression of "Saturday Night Live's" classic foot-in-mouther, Emily Litella. Neeeeever miiiiind. Picture Telles-Irvin squinting and grimacing sheepishly as she wrote an update on her breathless bulletin "that four female students attending an event at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house were possibly given a date-rape drug, and two of these students believed they were sexually assaulted." Before I reveal the substance of her...

    The New York Times’ coverage of alleged sexual assault on college campuses “seems of a piece with the leftist bias I noticed within the Times newsroom regarding climate change, gay marriage, abortion, affirmative action, labor, and other hot-button issues.” Tom Jolly, New York Times sports editor, confessed in February 2008 that he regretted aspects of his paper’s much-criticized coverage of the Duke lacrosse case. He vowed to do better. “Knowledge gained by hindsight has informed our approach to other stories since then,” said Jolly, who later became an associate managing editor. But The Times did not do better. Its handling...

    I watched the election results in Emory University’s Black Student Union with Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book and gospel playing in the background. There was a table full of cupcakes, salsa and chips, and pizza; I sat with my French workbook in my lap. Every time a red state was taken a prayer was said, and the mood became more somber. I jumped out of my chair when Virginia, my home state, pulled through as blue for the third year in a row. I have never been naïve about elections. I grew up in a battleground state. My parents taught...

    Two men who drove a truck through Wellesley College waving a Trump flag while yelling "Make America Great Again," and were accused of shouting racial slurs will not face disciplinary charges, their lawyers said. Parker Rand-Ricciardi and Edward Tomasso, students at nearby Babson College, faced accusations of harassment and disorderly conduct before the college’s honor board on Friday. On Monday, however, the school officially ruled that the students did nothing wrong and that the racism charges were unfounded.

    A Villanova University student has asked police to drop their investigation into an incident in which she alleged she was attacked by white male President-Elect Donald Trump supporters. An African-American female student at the university alleged in a hate crime-related story that after Trump’s victory against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a group of white men knocked her to the ground as they yelled “Trump,” Philly.com reported. Last month, the student asked the local police department to shut down the investigation into the incident, yet police did not reveal the reason for her request. Villanova University campus police say the student...

"The victim in this case has informed Radnor Police that at this time she does not wish to pursue this matter any further," said Lt. Andy Block. "We're going to keep a case file on it. If she changes her mind, we'll absolutely investigate it." The university, however, is continuing its investigation, said spokesman Jonathan Gust.

    BOWLING GREEN (13abc Action News) - Strong accusations were made by a Bowling Green State University student the day after election day. Eleesha Long said she was assaulted and called a racial slur, but BG police said she made the story up. Long wrote a police complaint on November 9th that reads in part, "while walking down Crim St to ask for yard signs, three boys began to throw rocks at me." Long continued to write the white males shouted profanity at her while wearing Trump shirts. She described how all three young men looked and what they were wearing....

    Brittany Daughenbaugh couldn't sleep, so the Capital University student decided to go on a Pokemon Go hunt in the early hours of Thursday morning. She had seen the men across Francis Street but paid them no mind. She was on the trail of a good catch. "Suddenly, they're behind me," Daughenbaugh, 20, said Monday. One man wore a "Make America Great Again" hat and the other a "Trump-Pence" sweatshirt. She said the sweatshirted man grabbed her arm and told her, "Don't you worry, honey. President Trump says this is OK." He then punched her in the face and the arm....

    Two Babson College students are reportedly in trouble after their idea of Donald Trump victory celebration was too much for some to handle. According to a Boston Globe report, the two fraternity brothers placed a large Trump flag in the back of a pickup truck and drove through the streets of nearby Wellesley College, a women’s liberal arts college that also happens to be Hillary Clinton’s alma mater. A brief video of the alleged incident was posted to Facebook on Thursday. The incident was upsetting to some on the Wellesley campus and reports indicate police were called to put an...
