NPR Says FALSE Rape Accuser is a 'Survivor'. Yes, Really...
Dear men living in 2017: don't go to college (see Footage Clears USC Student of Rape Charges. Could STILL be Expelled and Justice? College Withholds Degree of Student ACQUITTED of Rape). Also, maybe don't listen to NPR. Both have been tainted by the insanity which calls itself feminism. According to a recent NPR piece, women who falsely accuse innocent men of rape are still the victim. Behold:
A Boston-based National Public Radio correspondent received a torrent of criticism over the weekend after she defended the media organization's decision to refer to a Columbia University student who falsely accused another student of rape as a "survivor."
The piece, produced for NPR's "All Things Considered," examined a new approach to adjudicating campus sexual assault allegations known as "restorative justice." NPR correspondent Tovia Smith said the proposed practice involves focusing on the harm done "and finding ways to repair it" instead of "judging or punishing the perpetrator."
Smith quoted in her report an activist named Emma Sulkowicz, whom she described as a "survivor" ... merely since she self-identified as one.
So the guy who suffered defamation, slander, harassment, blackmail, and character assassination? He doesn't get a single morsel of the widely coveted victim status. To the lying she-beasts go the spoils.
The left has managed to create a climate wherein professional "victims" can fester and grow. Social justice fiends have vilified men to the point where even an unwanted glance can be rape culture (see UK Police Now Deem Staring at Woman’s Breasts a 'Hate Crime.'). It's no wonder false rape accusations are spreading like the clap at a frat party.
In progressive societies, lies are rewarded while justice goes ignored. Or in this case, defiled. NPR and other liberal media sources have shamelessly legitimized these unwarranted claims to victim status all for the sake of virtue signaling.
In any other case, methinks the radio station would be cautious of deeming a lying, life-ruining psychopath a "survivor." But alas, she's working to further the feminist cause so such exceptions can be made. When feminism is involved, facts and truth go out the window like an unwanted baby.
Heads up, America. This is your future...
