We need a Moms Movement to end the campus War on Men

We need a Moms Movement to end the campus War on Men

My column at National Review.

The Rolling Stone story about a supposed fraternity gang rape has generated a lot of controversy after the veracity of the reporting and underlying complaint was cast in doubt.

As part of my continuing effort to reach new audiences, I have a post at National Review, Mothers Must Speak Up for Their Sons on Campus. Here’s a brief excerpt:

Natoinal Review Mothers Must Speak Up for Their Sons On Campus

Radical feminists on campus, driven by theories about “patriarchy” and “rape culture,” are the new hunter-gatherers, seeking out accusations to prove a theory, not evidence to fairly adjudicate guilt. Hence, any accusation, no matter how improbable, must be treated as presumptively true, thereby ensnaring college men in a net from which it is difficult to escape….

Mothers, how much longer will you allow your sons to live as hunted people on campus? Must their lives be ruined so that feminist “rape culture” and other theories can be validated in a real-world testing laboratory? …

Mothers, it’s up to you. Will you continue to be silent as your innocent sons are used as cannon fodder for the radical feminist agenda? If you care about your sons and your daughters, speak up.

I’m thinking thousands and thousands of male students aren’t overly excited about mom joining them on campus.

Am I destined for “the cover of the Rolling Stone” ?

I’m going to come clean right here and now.
During my Junior year in college, one of my professors threw an eraser at me because I fell asleep in his class.
It was traumatic !!

I was subjected to a “culture of eraser throwing” that only ended because most schools don’t use blackboards and chalk any more.

The left has amped up a cause that was around -and debunked- in the 1990s with the current false accusations of rape aimed at particularl people and institutions.

Remember the Take Back the Night Marches? Christina Hoff Somers wrote about the false one in five college women will be raped number used to promote those marches in her 1995 book Who Stole Feminism. Camille Paglia ridiculed the privileged daughters of the elite who would behave like drunken tarts all the while demanding to be treated with deference. Katie Roiphe and Wendy Shalit wrote about women in their college classes not taking responsibility for their own sexual behavior. I found Shalit particularly affecting as she noted the pressure from the campus culture was on women to behave promiscuously. Then when this behavior made many women anxious and unhappy, the college health departments ad counselors wrote prescriptions for anti-depressants instead of advising more discretion in one’s sex life.

Two things happened in the late 1990s. Strong women fought back and Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades made the feminists look like hypocrites. Then at the beginning of the next decade 9/11 replaced phony fears about rape with more immediate fears of terrorism in the minds of many middle and upper middle class women. Now the false narrative has made a comeback and it doesn’t even seem to have any new twists. Just a new viciousness. It’s almost like these feminist clowns feel desperate.

Moms…? OK, cool.

EVERY. FEMALE. IN the lives of these guys needs to support them. Sisters, aunts, grandmothers, girl-friends…whoever.

no- to the contrary. College aged men should let this culture stew in its own juices. Men are just fine will be just fine. Men are not stupid and men are not victims. This rape culture movement degrades women, not men.

Is there any point in world history where women have come to men’s rescue? No. Don’t rob men of the right of passage of learning that there a lot of forces in this world that are out to screw you… at 19-21, it happens to be campus liberals… a few years later its going to be other anti liberty opposing despots and foreign forces. Men need to figure this out. I’ll give you that it won’t hurt for mom’s and dad’s to make sons aware of the vicious forces in the world that will attempt to prey on them for being men and that many of them are dressed like honey pots. It won’t hurt for men to be wise to this and not put themselves in a situation to get accused of such. We will never banish the world of the Kobe accuser or the Duke Lacrosse accuser… the people are part of the fabric of society. Men need to know that and behave accordingly.

Dad’s need to step up and save their daughters from the rape and victim culture that’s being imprinted. God forbid a young lady is asked to NOT dress like a whore, to not put herself in situations where bad things happen. All the men’s persecution in the world will not stop some of the horrible gruesome things that happen to young ladies (many who are doing nothing wrong)… Dad’s need to teach them this. I had a female roommate (smoking hot) who lived with 3 redneck guys…in the worst part of town. A gang banger who could have been Obama’s son kicked in the door while she was home alone and was met by a 110 lb blonde wearing a towel and a cocked .22 pistol. Some where, some place, there is a Ted Bundy. Know that and know how to deal with it. (hint dragging a mattress around campus is not the solution).

Judith Grossman in the Wall Street Journal declares:
“There are very real and horrifying instances of sexual misconduct and abuse on college campuses and elsewhere.”

And yet we hear nothing or else the screeching from radfems that they happen or this sort of made up tripe.

Everyone keeps saying there’s a rape crisis but there’s no PROOF of that either.

The percentages are not what are being advertised. they have been interpolated and adjusted as much as the Hockey Stick by M. Mann was.

Let’s start there with real and scientific research and surveys THEN address the problem as it exists to the extent that it exists.

So far it’s just a witchhunt.

It’s a campus war on select men. As with evolutionary fitness, this is not a universal consideration. The effort has to observable purposes. One, to marginalize select men and, by association, women. Two, as faith-based judgment of human value falls into increasing disrepute, it serves to exploit a moral loophole that may secure women’s exclusive right to commit premeditated abortion.

This is not about a patriarchy. It’s not about a matriarchy. This is about special interests that compete through marginalization and promotion of a degenerate religion (i.e. moral philosophy).
