Mizzou Official Says Tall Men Asking Out Short Women Might be Sexual Misconduct

“power over her”

An official at the University of Missouri has taken the idea of consent to a whole new level of stupid.

Mizzou Official Claims Tall Men Asking Out Short Women Could Constitute Sexual Misconduct

Getting up the courage to ask someone out on a date can already be nerve-racking, but now that college campuses have completely gone off the deep end, that fear will be intensified.

Today’s crazy comes from — unsurprisingly — the University of Missouri (Mizzou), best known for torpedoing its enrollment rates after campus protests led a professor to threaten a student journalist. An official at Mizzou indicated during a deposition that a male student who was physically larger than the female student he asked out may have violated the school’s Title IX policy because his physical size gave him “power over her.”

For years, we have been told that one must receive “affirmative consent” before anything of a dating or sexual nature takes place. Critics of such policies, such as this reporter, have often wondered what would happen if the mere ask is unwanted, does that also constitute sexual harassment or assault?

Now we appear to have our answer: Yes.

When a Mizzou official was questioned regarding a case where a black male Ph.D. candidate at the school asked out a white female fitness trainer, she bizarrely suggested that the fact that the male student was larger than the female student gave him “power over her” and violated school policy.

Does Mizzou teach anything other than victimization?

This is what you get when you teach people that all of life is about relative power. “The struggle of class against class.” Everyone has to be in a class and everything is a struggle.

The logical result of Marxism.

That could be rather problematic. I’m all of 5’2″. I don’t date short men. Never have. Never will.

Uh oh, then tall men MARRYING short women must be super duper non-consensual. Mom? Dad? What’s with the two of you smiling ear to ear after saying those I DON’TS?

I have a list of 10 books that my son needs to read, and one of them is “Marry Him: the case for settling for Mr. Good Enough.” When I started to date post-divorce, I quickly realized that there are 49 dating guides for women for every one for men. So I read the ones for women, and seriously, this book is gospel. It was written by a woman who played around until she was 40 and then decided to get serious, only to realize that all of the men were gone. She was a columnist, and her boss suggested that she write about her trials and tribulations using all of the dating and match-making strategies available, and why so many women follow self-defeating strategies from the get-go, as in, from 18 onwards. But what is germane to this thread is that it is the women themselves who seek out taller mates, which she contends, mostly comes down to looking good in heels. IIRC, the author was 5’4″ and when working with a professional match-maker, she indicated that she was looking for men 5’11” or taller. The counselor, after he had stopped laughing, quickly pointed out to her that she had just eliminated 85% of the available dating pool (which she later learned was already at less than 50% than the pool of women women seeking partners), including the 65% who were between 5’4″ and 5’11”. Being a scientist, and one to verify numbers and assertions independently, I did a quick search on of 40 yo 5’4″ women, and sure enough, 80-90% of them were looking for a man who was 6 ft tall. As I said, just so many dating strategies are flat out bad. All that those “picky” women are doing is making the odds much greater for the realistic women out there. She even has a chapter dedicated to how “Sex in the City” screwed up her marriage prospects, and likely also those of millions of women who believed that what happened to Carrie Bradshaw would happen to them.

BTW, what I also discovered is that women over 55 are not looking for a partner, they are shopping for a retirement plan. I just find it ironic that they complain all day long about “who” a guy is when it was they who only asked “what” questions.

Seriously, this is the best book that you can give a recent college graduate.
