War on men: Harvard forces all-male off-campus club to admit women because rape culture
From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:
Rakesh Khurana, the dean of Harvard College, issued an ultimatum giving eight single-sex student clubs (including Porcellian) until April 15 to go co-ed, and Porcellian, founded in 1791 and the oldest of the clubs, is so far holding out. Khurana’ s edict followed a report from Harvard’s Task Force on Sexual Assault Prevention stating that 47 percent of female Harvard seniors who participated in finals-club activities had experienced “nonconsensual contact,” in contrast to only 31 percent of female Harvard seniors in general.
“Club-hosted parties have ‘reinforced a sense of sexual entitlement,’ according to the report. The report cites student accounts of ‘parties at which the only non-members in attendance were women selected mainly by virtue of their physical appearance,’ as well as party themes that portray women as ‘sexual objects.
“Women selected mainly by virtue of their physical appearance”! Translation: Porcellian men date pretty girls.
