Campus Sexual Assaults

One of the more noteworthy parts of Emily Yoffe’s thorough analysis in Slate of the campus response to sexual-assault allegations is her interviews with the authors of studies frequently cited by administrators, elected officials and victim advocates.
To summarize the article from which the above quote is drawn:
*the "1 in 5" number for sexual assaults is not a statistically valid number,
*assuming an accused male student is guilty or is a serial predator is "sloppy thinking",
*the Dept of Education's Office of Civil Rights needs to be reined in, and
*the prohibition about linking alcohol consumption with any type of sexual assault needs to go away.
