    There was a reason for same sex schools. They have their place for certain people.

      Of course she's in a fight to be believed. Because her story is chock full of holes, gaps and inconsistencies. Not to mention having supposed eyewitnesses saying that they weren't there. And any guy who uses the word "cis" is a fool who has zero credibility to comment on anything.

      Do you actually believe that just because someone makes accusations and claims that they MUST be believed no matter what? Why is it now verboten to actually ask questions about these claims? For example, where is the proof that the girl in that video was raped? She says that the guy who raped her is still on campus and she sees him every day. Did she report the rape to police? It appears that she certainly isn't reticent about talking about it. Why was the guy not arrested? It certainly appears that the police and the university are concerned about women and their well being seeing as how that cop interrupted the video to insure that the woman was OK and the university offered her counseling because she was triggered by the very fact that there was a sign saying rape culture doesn't exist. Is it because as you and other liberals say the university and the police secretly approve of rape and endorse it and refuse to punish it? Because THAT'S what "rape culture" means. Oh, and what about her parents? Why would any parent allow their child to continue to go to a school in which her rape was not addressed? Why would the girl not seek some kind of justice? She certainly doesn't appear to be a shrinking violet who will just accept that she was raped. I'm not saying what she says isn't true but I am CERTAINLY allowed to ask the questions when she makes the accusations and there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing so.

      You still haven't answered my previous questions. What do you think "rape culture" means? Do you think there is a rape culture in this country? What is your proof? Do you believe the totally horse$h!t claims that 1 in 5 women will be raped in their life?

      Your data is old. 6 in 5 will be raped.

        And chaperones. And manners.

        How much of this is an unintended consequence of “breaking barriers” of all sorts?

        Women shouldn’t be so much at risk, but they are.

          Women have been "at risk" since the cave man days. Predators ALWAYS have existed and always will. It sucks and having a wife and daughter I certainly get it. But that doesn't in anyway mean that there is a rape culture in which rape is accepted and not prosecuted given enough evidence.

            What we need to work on is making it ok to say you have been raped so these men can be prosecuted, castrated and put away.

                  "Much of Ford's bio is not covered in the media. Her father's involvement with Memoryalteration projects with the CIA at Stanford U ( which Ford works on also), her recruiting efforts for CIA interns via these projects, her work with abortion pills for a foreign Pharma corp, her criminal record in Md, her brother's involvement with a member of the Mueller Investigation team and an associated legal firm, and Fusion GPS,, one of her college girl friends articles ( she is a journalist ) about their bar hopping days and trolling men on the beaches, Ford's work with polygraphs and self hypnosis, and on and on. All that is discussed are her memory lapses and her public lies, like fear of flying, and the 'many' questions she was asked during her invalid polygraph test ( all of TWO questions ) with no baseline initially set, why all of her online social posts were deleted ( as well as her fathers )"

                    Didn’t watch whole video, but did a single person comment on the logo on his shirt?

                      I agree. Just noting the realities. “Rape Culture” is a hyperbolic label that shuts down actual discussion of the issues, which I think Crowder pursued effectively.

                      In my day, and I’m 4 years older than Kavanaugh, there was a lot of talk about getting laid, but most of my friends and I were really looking for relationships. There was a ton of uncertainty about how far one should go. And if you were both drunk? What was consent? Murky. There were times I thought a relationship had begun only to be brushed off. There were time the girl assumed that and I had to break it off.

                      But I also remember rumors, some accounts were more than rumor, about a certain fraternity notorious for putting quaaludes in the punch. That same fraternity was booted at F$U for a nationally reported scandal and the code of silence that stymied the investigation.

                          I’m glad I don’t know these people you speak of drugging girls. No way I would have associated with these types. I guess I am glad I was known as a southern boy so these discussions were never brought before me. Disgusting.

                            I knew a girl whose boyfriend in that fraternity warned her about the punch. She warned me. Sick.

                                I heard there was no math...........and your data is probably WAY off because many victims will be raped repeatedly for years so maybe 20 in 5 is the answer..........

                                Is this for real or just some bizarre right-wing conspiracy theory? What's the source?
