Man expelled for rape that never happened

It was only a matter of time before something like this happened:

Colorado State University-Pueblo suspended a male athlete for years after he was found responsible for sexually assaulting a female trainer. But the trainer never accused him of wrongdoing, and said repeatedly that their relationship was consensual. She even stated, unambiguously, “I’m fine and I wasn’t raped.”

That’s according to the athlete’s lawsuit against CSUP, which persuasively argues that the university not only deprived him of fundamental due process rights, but also denied sexual agency to an adult woman. Taken at face value, this case appears to represent one of the most paternalistic, puritanically anti-sex witch hunts ever reported on a college campus.

What makes the case so astounding is that the woman did not report the act. Someone else reported the act as rape, and the school took that person’s word over the actual alleged victim’s testimony. I do not like slippery slope arguments, yet this is a perfect example of those arguments sometimes being true. This only happened because of how loosely defined rape is on college campuses. This only happened because the desire to prevent rape trumps finding evidence a crime occurred.

It does not matter that the “victim” said the sex was consensual or that she met the man several times after the alleged rape or she did not want to pursue any charges or complaints against the man. All that matters is the narrative.

I could go on, however, TL;DR did an excellent job breaking down the pure insanity of this case:

  2. Well…This is embarrassing!…erm…be interesting to see how they explain away that one!

  3. This is a strategic matriarchal power struggle, pure and simple.
    The goal is to remove choice from the individual female.
    What an individual male thinks or wants is, of course, irrelevant.

    The instigators will not be embarrassed or ashamed if outed or overruled,
    any more than a spy would be found spying,
    or a cat discovered with the canary in its mouth.

    The simplest response is to agree and amplify:
    “Goddammit, you’re right! I have no place at this here institution”.
    Leave them to feed on themselves.

  4. Sounds like a case of “it was consensual until daddy found out”. Only in this case daddy is the athletic director.
