Spiked Is Hosting an ‘Unsafe Space’ College Tour, and Reason’s Robby Soave and Elizabeth Nolan Brown Are Speaking

Of Course Hillary Clinton Identifies with Cersei Lannister. They Are the Same Person.

What’s the difference between Game of Thrones character Cersei Lannister and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton? One is an entitled narcissist who quietly supported her lecherous husband (whom she clearly loathed) when it was politically convenient, then insisted it was her turn to rule (even though it wasn’t), chose boot-lickers, ass-kissers, and elitist bankers as […]

Victims’ advocacy activists are not happy that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos intends to re-prioritize due process in campus sexual assault disputes. Dana Bolger and Alexandra Brodsky, former co-directors of the group Know Your IX, spoke for many when they called her plan “a signal that the Trump administration will make way for what is nothing […]

Here Is Every Crazy Title IX Rape Case Betsy DeVos Referenced, Plus a Bunch More

Michael Brochstein/Sipa USA/NewscomEducation Secretary Betsy DeVos today criticized the previous administration’s approach to campus sexual assault, accusing it of imposing a “broken system” that mistreats both accused students and rape survivors.

Betsy DeVos: The Era of Weaponized Title IX in Campus Rape Cases Is Over

In a major speech assailing the deprivation of due process protections under the Obama administration, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will vow to rein in the federal guidance compelling colleges to adjudicate sexual assault disputes between students.

Lawyer: In Campus Rape Disputes, the Accused Should Not Be Presumed Innocent

The mask slips once again. Laura Dunn, a lawyer and prominent advocate for sexual assault victims, admitted that Title IX—the federal statute behind the Education Department’s efforts to compel universities to adjudicate sexual assault—does not require investigators to presume that accused students are innocent. Dunn thinks that’s a good thing. “A presumption of innocence advantages […]
