trump is the last person who should be setting standards on matters sexual. He’s on the record as having embraced “you can do anything” to them, reinforced recently during the Kavanaugh hearings. He conceded that Dr. Ford was “credible” but that didn’t...…
...keep him from shaming her at a rally or believing a “good man” not only be spared punishment but awarded a prestigious job.
For coeds, seeing Dr. Ford turned into the villain is proof that the most perfect complainants can be destroyed by coming forward.
For Trump, this moment in sexual jurisprudence left him very, very concerned about “young men in America,” for whom it’s “a very scary time.”
Young men can relax. The rules promoted by Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy Devos will make the world a less scary place for you.
In addition to allowing cross-examination, any harassment must be “so severe, pervasive, & objectively offensive” that it denies a person equal access to education but it is way too broad to be helpful. Is it “pervasive” if the harassment is one virulent act? One court says no.
The Trump rules would have done nothing to save the women of Baylor University, violated in 52 rapes by 31 members of its football team between 2011 and 2014. Cowering through all this was Baylor president Ken Starr who finally resigned in disgrace (with a $4.5 million severance)
This is the same Ken Starr who dug up & graphically described every moment of President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. According to the Dallas News, Starr had been on the short list of candidates Trump considered to head the Office of International Religious Freedom.
Schools can now choose a higher standard of proof over the current “preponderance of the evidence” that will be harder for victims to meet. While there may have been male students unjustly expelled the new rules won’t necessarily prevent that while they would deter reporting. 🤦‍♀️
