On The Feminist Wire Today

My piece wondering why, in this country, colleges and universities get to investigate sexual assaults on their own without involving the local police.

And while one of the first comments on it is by someone accusing me of wanting to strip extra layers of protection for college victims, I am most certainly not looking for that. I know our system of justice is woefully inadequate when it comes to rape, but I think it's a good start to hold all perpetrators (and those accused) of sexual assault to the same standard, regardless of where they live or go to school.  Check it out if you're interested.

And have a terrific Monday!

Wow that is such an elaborate article. I never thought that that would happen in colleges. Seriously, if no police is involved, then why would any offender be afraid? Specially if the offense gives them a status among his friends. If there is one true friend of a rapist, he would spit on his face, rather than be impressed. May be then the number of rapes might be reduced.
