Preposterous ‘Breakfast Date Rape’ case shows the extremes of liberal hysteria

American Thinker: May I ask you a provocative question?  Have you ever been raped?  Specifically, have you ever been raped and then invited your would-be rapist to spend the night with you afterward, and then had breakfast with your attacker the following morning, and then, sometime later, when the alleged rapist did not call you as he promised he would, only then decided you were raped?

This is not a purely theoretical question, but rather is one of the cases spotlighted by the New York Times to show the need for greater prosecution of “date rape.”  The Obama administration felt that there was an epidemic of underreported “date rape” on college campuses.  (Incidences of reported rape were low…and therefore underreported.  If you haven’t learned how to think like a liberal, it’s never too late to start!)

And so the federal government used its rather amorphous powers under Title IX to press colleges into more aggressive action.  Specifically, Title IX is “the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in schools that receive public funds[.]”

What, you may ask, does gender discrimination have to do with prosecution of alleged rapes?  Well, not much.  But perhaps if you strain, you can find a shadow or a penumbra of the law (the same magic words used to find the nonexistent right to abortion in the Constitution) that implies a power to impress colleges into prosecuting more men for alleged date rape.  read more

10 Comments on Preposterous ‘Breakfast Date Rape’ case shows the extremes of liberal hysteria

  1. A long time ago, as I drove up to a stop sign I saw a cop car on the other side of the intersection. I came to a full stop and stayed stopped for a couple of seconds. When I drove on (there was no other traffic), the cop hit his lights and siren, pulled me over, and gave me a citation for not stopping at the stop sign. Maybe he was below quota – it was the end of the month.

    Can I call that getting raped? It sure felt like it.

  2. I have been raped….she pushed me back on the couch and forcibly opened her robe which revealed she was necked and then pounced on me like a vulture on a ham steak. What was I to do? She was 5’3 and 100 pounds and somehow my hands got tied in her bathrobe….

  3. Met a girl at a club on a liberal campus. She wanted to go back to my place. I produced the 5 page “Consent to Sex” agreement I had my lawyer draft. She reluctantly signed it, but we had a bitch of a time finding a notary public available at 2:00 a.m. That notary was also drunk, and I can’t trust a drunk notary public so we searched for another one. Got the contract signed, and then it was off to the medical clinic to make sure she was not legally intoxicated. While she was undergoing the blood test, I called my lawyer and four witnesses, and took advantage of the closed circuit camera system to obtain another recorded verbal consent in front of my witnesses after my lawyer cross-examined her.

    Turns out that she was not intoxicated and anxious to have sex. Unfortunately, I had an early tee time and needed some shut eye, so I left cab fare and went home.
