'A student at the University of North Georgia is behind bars after falsely reporting to police that she had been raped while running on a trail.

Rebekah Lim called 911 to report the crime just after 8:30 p.m. on May 24, saying she had been running along the Reservoir Trails in Dahlonega when she was sexually assaulted.

The trail was immediately searched and no evidence was found. Investigators continued to search for days without finding any evidence of the crime. After checking surveillance cameras and her personal cell phone logs, investigators determined that Lim wasn't even on the trail at the time she claimed the sexual assault took place.

A warrant was issued for her arrest and she was taken into custody on Monday at her apartment at the North Georgia Suites.'

'A former Connecticut college student charged with lying about being raped by two Sacred Heart University football players has been offered a plea deal that could see her jailed for two years.

Nikki Yovino, of South Setauket, New York, was described as looking visibly shaken in Bridgeport Superior Court on Thursday when her defense attorney told her about the prosecutors' offer.

In February, then-18-year-old Yovino was charged with falsely reporting an incident and tampering with or fabricating evidence.

Police alleged Yovino made up the rape story last October to gain the sympathy of a prospective boyfriend because she worried he would lose romantic interest in her when it became known she had sex with two football players in a bathroom during an off-campus party.

The players told police they had consensual sex with Yovino and were eventually cleared in the case.

Facing a disciplinary hearing stemming from Yovino's allegations, the football players chose to drop out of Scared Heart to avoid a potential expulsion, reported the Connecticut Post.'

'Councilmember Adam McFadden and other local leaders hosted the 4th annual Father’s Day Pledge to end violence outside Rochester City Hall Saturday afternoon.

The pledge calls on fathers and men in the community to commit to changing the culture of violence in their relationships, homes and communities.

Councilmember McFadden led the ceremony, saying it’s important for men in the community to be conscious of how they act, especially in their homes.

"Violence in my mind is something that’s learned at home first, before it spills out into the community. So if we could teach the proper lessons in the home first, and make sure that we're using appropriate language, appropriate attitudes, and appropriate actions; we should be able to stem the violence that’s happening in our community."'

'Two years ago, a defense lawyer beat the University of California-San Diego in court for denying due process to a student accused of sexual assault.

Though an appeals court later overturned the ruling, saying it “cannot conclude the process was unfair,” lawyer Mark Hathaway is trying again, this time against the university system’s flagship institution.

He’s representing a UC-Berkeley student who was suspended and physically blocked from campus for three years on the basis of insufficient evidence that “John Doe” took sexual advantage of an incapacitated female student last fall, according to the May 31 lawsuit.

It implies the university and Chancellor Nicholas Dirks are violating state law by failing to use properly licensed investigators in its sexual-assault adjudications.

“UC Berkeley places the entire responsibility for the investigation, prosecution, factfinding, and adjudication of sexual misconduct claims in the hands of a single individual who act as police, prosecutor, jury, and judge without a hearing,” the lawsuit reads.'

'The all-male St Paul’s College was the one valiant holdout against the university’s bid to stamp out masculinity on campus. But, last week, Australia’s oldest college quietly capitulated, after the NSW government disgracefully was enlisted to threaten its very existence using an ancient act of parliament.

Now the college is dejected and defeated, the gentle, well-loved warden, Rev Dr Ivan Head, has brought forward his retirement, while college council chairman Angelo Hatsatouris has stepped down.

The college has finally submitted to the emasculating $1 million feminist re-education program designed by former Sex Discrimination Commissioner Liz Broderick that has wreaked such havoc on other former traditionally male bastions of the Army, the Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police.'

'Sessions v. Morales-Santana is an unfortunate case, revealing that sometimes the Constitution demands truly harsh results.

The holding of Morales-Santana is that a federal citizenship law that gives preferential treatment to the children of unwed U.S. citizen mothers — and only to unwed mothers, not to unwed fathers — is unconstitutional. This is a natural conclusion from the Court’s previous decisions holding that gender discrimination must be viewed with skepticism.

But the practical consequence of Monday’s decision in Morales-Santana is that fewer children of U.S. citizens will themselves gain citizenship, and that more people will be subject to deportation. It also means that the individual at the heart of this case, Luis Ramón Morales-Santana, is now set to be deported to a nation he has not lived in since 1975.'

'LYING Jemma Beale, 25, made false rape and sex assault claims against 15 different men — and sent an innocent man to jail for seven years, a court was told.

Beale made allegations over three years but they were “grotesque inventions”, jurors heard.

She claimed she was attacked at a pub and outside her home, and gang raped in the street.

Beale said she was raped by nine men and sexually assaulted by six. All but one were strangers.

Beale’s first allegation was against Mahad Cassim, who had given her a lift home after a night out. He was charged with rape and jailed for seven years.

But prosecutor John Price QC said: “That was a wrongful conviction. Mahad Cassim was innocent.'

'Thought policing is alive and well in the new media as social justice activists ramp up their crusade to silence and de-platform “wrongthinkers” from producing content within their medium, citing issues as nebulous as “cyberviolence” as reasons to censor those who oppose progressive ideology.

Following the explosion of outrage against an independent game developer who once expressed views critical of feminism in the video game industry, outrage warriors are now calling for the industry to enact strict rules against hiring and associating with developers whose views do not align with feminist orthodoxy. The target of their ire, Tim Soret, is producing a game called The Last Night, which went viral at E3 2017 after its reveal.
...
Essentially calling for a blacklist or the creation of a sort of “Games Code Authority” against developers guilty of “wrongthink”, Kramer and her supporters are outraged by game developers and products that do not partake in their crusade for “social justice.”

“I would urge those who want to see the world grow and progress to make sure they align themselves only with people who share those dreams,” wrote Kramer.'

'Cambridge academics are being discouraged from praising students for their “genius”, “brilliance” or “flair” because these are seen as male qualities.

Tutors at the prestigious university are being told to drop the attributes as assessment criteria on the grounds that they alienate women and make it harder for them to succeed.

The policy is part of an overhaul of arts teaching at Cambridge, which also encompasses removing paintings of eminent male academics and stripping men’s work out of reading lists.

The strategy was outlined by Dr Lucy Delap, who is carrying out the program in Cambridge’s faculty of history.'

'-Sheila Broderick, Duke’s gender violence intervention services coordinator, warned that when the campus judiciary acquitted an accused rapist “you and I know that he’s responsible, and that’s at the end of the day what really matters.” In other words, everyone is guilty of rape when accused.

-Duke then implemented a new training program to teach those who sit on sexual assault disciplinary panels that less than 2 percent of all sexual assault allegations are false. Duke also changed the sexual assault sanctions to allow for the expulsion of students who engaged in mere kissing without affirmative consent.

-A newly trained Duke rape tribunal then found a drunken male student who had sex with a drunken female student guilty of rape. Coercion was assumed because she was drunk. After his expulsion was recommended, the student’s lawyer pointed out that the presumption of non-consent based on drunkenness would mean that he was also raped by the woman he was accused of raping. Dean of Students Sue Wasiolek responded by saying, “It’s the responsibility in the case of the male to gain consent before proceeding with sex.”'

'Rolling Stone has settled a lawsuit with the University of Virginia fraternity whose members were falsely accused of raping a female student in a Nov. 2014 article, The Daily Caller has learned.

A source involved at the national level with the fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi, tells TheDC that Rolling Stone will pay $1.65 million to settle the defamation suit.

The magazine’s decision follows a settlement in April with Nicole Eramo, a University of Virginia associate dean who was also smeared in the article, which was written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely.

In the piece, “A Rape on Campus,” Erdely relayed the story of Jackie Coakley, a Virginia woman who claimed she was brutally raped by a group of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members during a party in Sept. 2012.'

'I do not worry so much for my own sons, who range in age from 36 to 52, or even for my grandsons, who are being raised beautifully, and are doing just fine. But I worry for my gender. Everywhere I look, there are examples of how boys are seen as in need of re-shaping, and these inevitably upset me. Here’s an example of what can (and did) set me off: It’s a recent article by New York Times writer Clair Cain Miller, titled How to Raise a Feminist Son. I have to admit that the title itself angered me. I have seen the word “feminist” become the new world order. To not be a feminist seems often to be equated with not being a decent human being. But suppose I have noticed, as I have, that while in so many ways girls and young women are doing better than boys and young men, men who fight for what they see as right for themselves and their sons are often labeled—by feminists—as misogynist. Then what do I do?

I did agree with some of what Miller had to say. For example, she writes, “Boys are particularly responsive to spending time with role models, even more than girls, research shows. There is growing evidence that boys raised in households without a father figure fare worse in behavior, academics, and earnings.” The evidence on this is substantial. But yet it has been an uphill battle to fight for laws mandating shared parenting in case of divorce, even when the father is quite eager for that. I know people who have devoted their lives to this struggle, but I don’t think many feminists tend to be among them. You can’t take the “fem” out of feminism, and fem means female. To advocate for men and boys is something few feminists will go out of their way to do.'

'Oxford University plans to change its final exam policy in 2018 to help female students score better on their history exams.

The college’s History Faculty will make one of its five final exams a take home paper in order to boost female performance on exams after a study revealed that men are more likely to get a first class degree in history than women, the Telegraph reported Sunday.

Thirty-two percent of women will go on to gain a first class degree, compared to 37 percent of men who will do the same, the study showed.

“This course in particular showed one of the largest gender gaps in results between women and men,” a document said regarding the gender gap in Oxford’s History program. “As women and men perform more equally in submitted work, it was proposed that a take-out exam with questions similar to that in a timed exam should be implemented.”

Some have accused the university of insulting women by making the standards lower to accommodate them.'

'Fairfax Media, one of Australia’s largest news media companies, is dying and while many journalists are losing their jobs, there is a potential silver lining: This slow death may spell the end of Fairfax’s online women’s magazine Daily Life.

Daily Life’s major star is Clementine Ford, whose job over the years has been to churn out anti-male screeds week after week after week.
...
Whether cracking jokes about getting abortions, or fantasizing about having social media platforms dedicated to laughing at men who have tiny penises, Ford’s career has been built on pure hatred.

In her worldview, all men are domestic abusers. All men are guilty of perpetuating rape culture. Rape is not a serious criminal offence committed by a small percentage of psychopaths, but is a cultural phenomenon that all men are guilty of.'
