Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Actually, Some College Rape Cases Are Unfair to the Accused
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is heralded as a feminist hero (see Ruth Bader Ginsburg Claims Hillary Clinton Lost Because of Sexism). She's up there with the greats, like Lena Dunham and Linda Sarsour. Halt thy laughter! Poor broad can't help who likes her. However, her recent comments may come as a blow to rabid fembots. They involved far too much logic.
Check out what she had to say when The Atlantic's Jeffrey Rosen asked her about protecting due process.
Rosen: What about due process for the accused?
Ginsburg: Well, that must not be ignored and it goes beyond sexual harassment. The person who is accused has a right to defend herself or himself, and we certainly should not lose sight of that. Recognizing that these are complaints that should be heard. There's been criticism of some college codes of conduct for not giving the accused person a fair opportunity to be heard, and that's one of the basic tenets of our system, as you know, everyone deserves a fair hearing.
Rosen: Are some of those criticisms of the college codes valid?
Ginsburg: Do I think they are? Yes.
Feminists right now
This doesn't go hand in gender fluid hand with the current #MeToo narrative. Which is something like: destroy reputations first, ask questions never. Trial by Twitter is the method of choice.
Since modern feminists see due process as victim blaming, it's clear old Ruthie's principles are a tad outdated. Especially her solution:
Rosen: I think people are hungry for your thoughts about how to balance the values of due process against the need for increased gender equality.
Ginsburg: It's not one or the other. It's both. We have a system of justice where people who are accused get due process, so it's just applying to this field what we have applied generally.
So she's calling for college campuses, specifically, to handle these Title IX cases better. Victim testimonies trump facts in the eyes of campus officials. Right now they're simply flying through rape cases recklessly, in feminist fashion. With the grace of a whale in a china cabinet.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is by no means a "moderate" person with which we often agree. However, modern feminism is now so extreme that her comments have become a beacon of reason. The bar is set low.
Feminism 2018 is leaving leathered bats like Ruth in its dust. Any semblance of reason shall be crushed like it's a box full of glazed donuts.
