New Study Suggests No Such Thing as ‘Rape Culture’ on U.S. College Campuses.

Feminists have, for years, suggested ‘rape culture’ is a phenomenon that is wide-spread and out of control, that (white) men somehow walk around campuses feasting on flesh with their eyes and looking for their next victim.

Guest Speaker Andrew Cavarno, a fourth-year history major and member of Young Americans for Liberty, argued that a frequently referenced statistic of one in four women being sexually assaulted on college campuses is heavily inflated and lacking in evidence.

She awoke in the hospital to find, by her own account, “fingers had been jabbed inside me along with pine needles and debris.” In the case of the latter, a young woman (now widely known as “Mattress Girl” because she carried a mattress around campus to symbolize her plight) claimed that a man with whom she’d previously had consensual sex, assaulted her in her bed and then left. Two days after, he invited her to come to a party, and she said yes, adding that the two should have a “chill sesh.”
