June 23 is the anniversary of #TitleIX; that wonderful law un #USA 🇺🇸 that enabled me to get my scholarship & education.
To commemorate I will demonstrate the difference in argument between those who wish to usurp women’s #sports and women like me who fight to preserve it.
Usurper’s argument on the LEFT (original article)
Women’s argument on the RIGHT (track changes recommended by @coachblade )

I left class immediately and went home.

No one had seen- how could I prove he had touched me?

That evening, a girl in the front row of class emailed my UH email address. Image
Allison saw something !!! She saw Professor Houghton Brown make an advancement at me in class.

I only attended class once after the professor touched me.

A friend who took Prof Brown’s class in the past shared how many girls have shared uncomfortable experiences with Brown.
I emailed @UHpres office through email requesting to report Professor Brown, and was met with the standard university compliance statement.

They were passing my email onto the office that handles these kinds of cases. The “Equal Opportunity Services”.

Some folks have been asking questions about the #TitleIX regulation that prohibits the use of a statement by a party or witness that does not submit to cross-exam at a hearing: "Can we have someone else testify about what they said?"
Let me point you to some commentary that the U.S. Department of Education offered on this point along with the final regs. Citations are to the unofficial version posted on ED's website:…
Page 1169: "– “If a party or witness makes a statement in the video [and then doesn’t appear for cross-examination], then the decision-maker may not rely on the statement of that party or witness in reaching a determination regarding responsibility.”

1/ A thread to expand on my comment yesterday re: the (lost) promise of #Title IX. And let’s see if I can actually build a thread correctly today!
2/ #TitleIX is a civil rights law that guarantees access to educational opportunities regardless of sex. Years ago, this was interpreted to mean that we have a right to go to college without enduring sexual harassment and rape.
3/ Research clearly demonstrates that sexual assault has myriad negative effects on health, mental health, relationships, and also the ability to access and engage in educational opportunities.

Today the Trump Administration took a chunk out of #TitleIX—an attack that has been years in the making. Among the most nefarious changes: allowing live ‘judicial’ hearings, and changing what even ‘counts’ as harassment. Let’s unpack that. 1/…
For starters, #TitleIX is not, and was never intended to be a CRIMINAL law—it is a CIVIL RIGHTS law that focuses on ACCESS TO EDUCATION.
I am one of thousands of survivors that filed a federal complaint after experiencing sexual violence. My argument was never criminal. 2/
Our argument then,as it is now,is that sexual violence barred ACCESS to education. My school did little to support my success after rape,nor did it mitigate harassment after coming forward. My story is common,but in 2013, ‘unbelievable.’ In 2018,we won.… 3/

1) THREAD: It will obviously take time to go through the 2000+ pages of new #TitleIX regs that were just released. But as I start going through, some initial thoughts:
2) Grievance processes apply "only to sex discrimination occurring against a person in the United States." How will this section impact cases where an assault allegation arises out of a study abroad program, but the two students then return to the same U.S. campus?
3) Formal complaints can only be made by people participating in or attempting to participate in the education program of the institution where the complaint is filed.

1/ Before I start getting bombarded by feminist groups for promoting Title IX Attorney’s wouldn’t you like to know my views or opinion before you rush to judgment about what I believe? For the conspiracy feminist’s the answer is NO I have never been accused of anything
2/ resembling a Title IX or rape charge. However, through my personal experiences I can identify and understand the pain caused for families and students have surrounding #falseallegations, inherent problems and frustrations working with uncooperative #Education & #HigherEd
3/ officials, the ludicrous Kangaroo disciplinary hearings our youth are put thru, the frustration of trying to explain to someone without lived experience what you or child needs help with or support with that does not exactly match up with what is in the four corners of the

I had a follower DM me asking why I was excited and “Celebrating” having the Elite Title IX attorney’s following my story. Not wanting to get in an argument, I thanked her and said I would spend some time thinking about her question & send a message out in the group sharing my
perspective. My reasons are fairly simple! First, this group of attorneys, accused student warriors and their supportive family members following my #twitterfeed are amazing. This group together BLAZED a TRAIL & SHINED a LIGHT on #Colleges & #Universities denial of #DueProcess &
#UnFairHearings. #HigherEd Schools have been denying students #fundamentalfairness for years. So without these attorney’s, brave student warriors & supportive families determined to prove their #innocence there would be very little protections for me now as I take the next step

Final panelist, Andrea Blanch from the Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice is talking about the science of trauma- how much does trauma cost society? Putting a dollar sign on it catches eyes.
She wants to focus on talking about structural changes that need to happen rather than putting all the burden on individuals, as western cultures like to do. Also focused on updating info that policy is formed on so we're not creating laws around 50 yr old data.
Her campaign wants people to understand that trauma affects every aspect of life.

& she honors the work of the late Elijiah Cummings in bringing these topics to policy.

1/ What follows is the story of why I will not be attending #MPSA2020. Here, I discuss the aftermath of my #MeTooPoliSci disclosure, which I discussed last year: The #thread is long, so please bear with me. #MPSAfail
2/ When I first saw the editorial statement on the @AJPS_Editor website in April 2018, I was devastated. In that statement, my harasser told the #polisci community that what I said about him harassing me was untrue.
3/ He also indicated that his cooperation with the ongoing investigations with the @MPSAnet, @michiganstateu, and @UMich was an attempt to clear his name.

Now back at Cuddy Halll for a discussion with @theNASEM about #MeTooSTEM, running through sleet and snow. Should be a good discussion given our recent #TitleIX complaints.
See the 300 page report from NASEM on sexual harassment. Linked here for the 5 people on Twitter who don't know that sexual harassment exists in STEM. Here's the 300 page evidence that it does.…
Good reminder that gender harassment ("women don't belong in STEM") is as damaging as the overt sexual harassment (unwanted sexual advances, etc).

.@IWF calls on Congress to clarify federal law on campus sexual assault. #TitleIX #IWlaw #IWed #IWregs
Washington, DC -- @IWF applauds the U.S. Senate committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions for taking the first step toward clarifying federal law on campus sexual assault.
As an organization dedicated to expanding women’s freedom, choices, and opportunities, IWF takes seriously any and all allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse. And as an organization committed to fairness and due process, IWF understands that allegations of

This week @bidenfoundation submitted a comment to the Department of Education about proposed changes to #TitleIX guidance.

These new rules would endanger students and make it harder for survivors of sexual assault to seek justice.
Students and survivors are making their voices heard. Grassroots organizers are working to make sure these guidelines are never put into effect.
.@DavidsonJess22 of @endrapeoncampus has been advocating for safer campuses since long before I met her in the White House. Jess, I’m so grateful for your tireless work, and proud of all that you continue to accomplish.

It’s important that we not create confusion about the reality of sexual violence that students experience and the rules that DeVos has proposed. Thread.
1) The violence that students face in schools has long been kept in the shadows. Few people come forward because they know they are unlikely to be believed. Or that their schools will treat the violence they endure as unimportant. The DeVos proposed rules will make this worse.
2)All survivors face deep skepticism. That is our culture at its worse and unfortunately our laws and processes have often reflected that idea.

I have been totally transparent that I support women candidates.

I created #FlipItFemale (I think--parallel generation happens on here a lot).

Women are 52% of the US population and 15% representation.

If there are 2 progressive candidates and one is female, #vote her.

Representation matters.
Right now women are in a literal fight for our lives against the Trump-led #GOP juggernaut that wants to eviscerate every protection based on sex that women have fought for for decades like #EqualPay #ReproRights & #TitleIX.

We need women in Congress.
We've been told #FlipItFemale is "identity politics" when it's actually majority politics. White men are the minority--why do they wield all the power?

Men with lesser resumes and experience than women rise because of structural #misogyny.

Change that by voting for women.

I was 14 when I was abducted & sexually assaulted by a classmate (a stranger) last summer. When I told my school, I thought they would keep me safe. Here’s how Winchester Public Schools turned a bad situation into an absolute nightmare THREAD
I did everything you’re supposed to do. I reported the assault to police & my school. I assumed adults would make it better and that I would be able to have their support. Instead, the school’s response has become worse than the actual assault. @tweetwps 1/
Although a judge issued a no-contact order against my assailant and placed him under court supervision for felony abduction & sexual battery, my school’s #TitleIX investigation concluded he didn’t do it. My principal, superintendent & school board are all calling me a liar. 2/

This afternoon at #SPSA2018, I was on a #CWC panel about mentoring across genders. Below, I'll include my comments from the panel. In it, I speak candidly about my #gradschool #metoo moment. @SPSAwomen @SPSAwomen 1/n
In many ways, graduate school is designed to make students feel like impostors. It's a common experience, but it can be particularly damaging for members of groups that have traditionally lacked access to the higher ranks of our discipline. I’ll focus on women here. 2/n
For these folks, the feeling that they have “faked” or “charmed” their way into graduate school (or the #tenuretrack, etc.) can override objective evidence of their own diligence, intellect, and merit. 3/n
