Very disappointed in the way that my daughters sexual assault case was covered up. She was victim shamed by Mindy May and further victimized by CU. Loren Reno was the rudest & most unprofessional person I’ve ever dealt with and Brad Smith has a personal friendship with the former police chief which is a conflict of interest. The perp has his connections harass and bully her until she had to withdraw. The perp is now free with a clean record at a new university victimizing new women.

We were sold a lie on an almighty scale, that equality had been won, the battle was over.“
- Kat Banyard, British feminist

„Pornography is the instruction, rape the practice.“
-Anita Kanitz

„Woman is not born: she is made. In the making, her humanity is destroyed. She becomes symbol of this, symbol of that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself because it is forbidden for her to do so.
Feminists are often asked whether pornography causes rape. The fact is that rape and prostitution caused and continue to cause pornography. Politically, culturally, socially, sexually, and economically, rape and prostitution generated pornography; and pornography depends for its continued existence on the rape and prostitution of women.
Pornography is used in rape - to plan it, to execute it, to choreograph it, to engender the excitement to commit the act. [Andrea testimony before the New York Attorney General's Commission on Pornography in 1986]
Women, for centuries not having access to pornography and now unable to bear looking at the muck on the supermarket shelves, are astonished. Women do not believe that men believe that pornography says about women. But they do. From the worst to the best of them, they do.
Sexism is the foundation on which all tyranny is built. Every social form of hierarchy and abuse is modeled on male-over-female domination.
Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us.
The fact that we are all trained to be mothers from infancy on means that we are all trained to devote our lives to men, whether they are our sons or not; that we are all trained to force other women to exemplify the lack of qualities which characterizes the cultural construct of femininity.
Intercourse as an act often expresses the power men have over women.“
-Andrea Dworkin

Gender may be the biggest cause of hate crime against women, new data shows!
Gender may have been the motivation for over half the hate crimes reported by women in 2018, a new data analysis has revealed.

Despite the prevalence of this category of hate crime, crimes motivated by gender are "currently not recorded" or acted on as hate crimes by most police forces, per The Fawcett Society, a British gender equality organisation.
Figures from the Crime Survey of England and Wales show that there were 67,000 reports of hate crime "based on gender" last year — of which 57,000 were "targeted at women." Respondents to the survey were asked "whether the incident was motivated by the offender’s attitude towards their sex".

The UK's Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) defines the term "hate crime" as a "range of criminal behaviour where the perpetrator is motivated by hostility or demonstrates hostility towards the victim's disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity." This criminal behaviour can include harassment, assault, intimidation, verbal abuse, threats, property damage, and bullying, per the CPS.

Gender was perceived to be the motivation for more than half of hate crimes reported by women last year, while age — which is also not recognised by police as a hate crime motivation — accounted for 41,000 incidents. Race was the third most common motivation, with 16,000 reported incidents. The data also showed that people aged between 16 and 44 were the most common targets of gender-motivated hate crimes.

In light of the data findings, campaigners have written to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick and National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) Chair Sara Thornton entreating them to support making misogyny a hate crime.

In November 2018, Dick echoed Thorton's assertion that police should not have to tackle reports of misogyny and that it shouldn't be considered a criminal offence, and said police should be focusing on "core policing."
Katie Ghose, chief executive of Women’s Aid, said that the official recognition of misogyny as a hate crime would give survivors "greater confidence that our criminal justice system will treat all forms of violence against women and girls more seriously."

"For far too long, women have not had the confidence to report men’s violence and harassment to the police for fear of not being believed or taken seriously," Ghose said in a statement emailed to Mashable.

"The forces that have taken a proactive approach to tackling the rife sexism and misogyny in our society have not seen an influx in reports of 'wolf-whistling', but rather serious reports of harassment and assault that would have otherwise passed unnoticed," she continued.

Ghose added that the organisation is joining the call for police chiefs to support making misogyny a hate crime so that forces are equipped with ample resources to effectively police "all forms of violence against women."

Sam Smethers, chief executive of the Fawcett Society, said that the data should serve as a "wake-up call" to everyone, but that the findings are "just the tip of the iceberg."

"Women are routinely targeted with abuse and threats online and in our streets," said Smethers. "We know that black women, Muslim women, and Jewish women are particularly affected. The way we tackle hate crime must reflect that.

"We have to recognise how serious misogyny is," she continued. "It is at the root of violence against women and girls. Yet it is so common that we don’t see it. Instead it is dismissed and trivialised. By naming it as a hate crime we will take that vital first step."

Pornographers are women haters, nothing more and nothing less. Porn shows the sad truth about men and evil lies of women. Porn is paid rape and sexual torture and mostly all men worldwide like that, what a sad world for women and girls and female childs:

PORNOGRAPHY: MEN POSSESSING WOMEN
by Andrea Dworkin


Whores

Men of the Right and men of the Left have an undying allegiance to prostitution as such, regardless of their theoretical relationship to marriage. The Left sees the prostitute as the free, public woman of sex, exciting because she flaunts it, because of her brazen availability. The Right sees in the prostitute the power of the bad woman of sex, the male's use of her being his dirty little secret. The old pornography industry was a right-wing industry: secret money, secret sin, secret sex, secret promiscuity, secret buying and selling of women, secret profit, secret pleasure not only from sex but also from the buying and selling. The new pornography industry is a left-wing industry: promoted especially by the boys of the sixties as simple pleasure, lusty fun, public sex, the whore brought out of the bourgeois (sic) home into the streets for the democratic consumption of all men; her freedom, her free sexuality, is as his whore--and she likes it. It is her political will as well as her sexual will; it is liberation. The dirty little secret of the left-wing pornography industry is not sex but commerce.

The new pornography industry is held, by leftist males, to be inherently radical. Sex is claimed by the Left as a leftist phenomenon; the trade in women is most of sex. The politics of liberation are claimed as indigenous to the Left by the Left; central to the politics of liberation is the mass-marketing of material that depicts women being used as whores. The pimps of pornography are hailed by leftists as saviors and savants. Larry Flynt has been proclaimed a savior of the counterculture, a working-class hero, and even, in a full-page advertisement in The New York Times signed by distinguished leftist literati, an "American Dissident" persecuted as Soviet dissidents are. Hugh Hefner is viewed as a pioneer of sexual freedom who showed, in the words of columnist Max Lerner, "how the legislating of sexuality could be fought, how the absurd anti-play and anti-pleasure ethic could be turned into a stylish hedonism and a lifeway which includes play and playfulness along with work. 15 Lerner also credits Hefner with being a precursor of the women's movement.

On the Left, the sexually liberated woman is the woman of pornography. Free male sexuality wants, has a right to, produces, and consumes pornography because pornography is pleasure. Leftist sensibility promotes and protects pornography because pornography is freedom. The pornography glut is bread and roses for the masses. Freedom is the mass-marketing of woman as whore. Free sexuality for the woman is in being massively consumed, denied an individual nature, denied any sexual sensibility other than that which serves the male. Capitalism is not wicked or cruel when the commodity is the whore; profit is not wicked or cruel when the alienated worker is a female piece of meat; corporate bloodsucking is not wicked or cruel when the corporations in question, organized crime syndicates, sell cunt; racism is not wicked or cruel when the black cunt or yellow cunt or red cunt or Hispanic cunt or Jewish cunt has her legs splayed for any man's pleasure; poverty is not wicked or cruel when it is the poverty of dispossessed women who have only themselves to sell; violence by the powerful against the powerless is not wicked or cruel when it is called sex; slavery is not wicked or cruel when it is sexual slavery; torture is not wicked or cruel when the tormented are women, whores, cunts. The new pornography is left-wing; and the new pornography is a vast graveyard where the Left has gone to die. The Left cannot have its whores and its politics too.

This is yet another national embarrassment Cedarville is involved in and adds to my frustrations with having a Cedarville degree behind my name. White should not be president, and he doesn't even have a real PhD from a real grad school. I'm glad I have several grad degrees from other schools besides Cedarville behind me. If I could do things over I would've gone to an Ivy League school rather than Cedarville for undergrad.

Cedarville has proven to be an untrustworthy institution, where the leaders abuse their power. The stories that have been published lately show how first, CU’s leadership doesn’t trust their own faculty, and adult, full-time faculty members treats them like children. Second, the stories have been published prove that despite their claims, Cedarville doesn’t care about their students. and third, the articles that have been posted show how even when someones action are not only immoral, but also illegal, Cedarville disclaims it as “a secular world pushing their views on a Christian institution”, while the victims of criminal behavior are lectured for not being forgiving enough.

I think it’s really screwed up that Cedarville is extremely forgiving of immoral sexual acts UNLESS these acts are consensual. for some reason, rape is less serious to Cedarville than consensual sex before marriage.

There is a lot more I could say about why the hypocrisy of Cedarville’s leadership, but for the sake of not making this comment overly long and redundant, I’m just gonna end it there

What‘a happened with this? It seems like it’s dropped off the face of the earth...is he being fired? Has anything else surfaced? Is the investigation ongoing? I think I speak for a lot of people when I say I want answers from the school.

I transferred from CU after surviving two years of fundamental, close-minded messaging that contributed to repression of many healthy things in my life and the lives of my peers. Cedarville taught me hate and silence many more times than it did love and boldness. White is not an asset to CU or any institution, and should never have been given the power he has.
