    Colleges have kicked out male students based on accusations with very little to back them up. In this case, they might have given them a pass because they're athletes.

    I changed the title. The way colleges handle sexual harassment allegations now seems to be politically motivated. That might have went out the window because the accused are athletes.

    I don't think whether the athletes are right wing or left wing matters. The whole jumping the gun attitude is what's politically motivated.

    It has nothing to do with politics. The college doesn't want to kick out the athletes because people love to pay to watch niggers run with balls on TV so the college values having a fast monkey that can run with a ball much more than having a smart asspie that wants to learn some sciency shit but is too fucking clumsy to play with any types balls other than his own balls.

    This is actually pretty commonplace, it's pretty much the key factor to the whole 'campus rape culture' controversy. University staff tends to be extremely reluctant to go forward on student athletes. They'll also turn a blind eye to the shit fraternities do and willingly give them more independence from the school for the sole purpose of making them less of a legal liability. All the 'victim shaming' you hear about is usually a work around to make it an incident that won't go to court.
    It's just easier to turn it into a "Muh feminism" issue than to face the actual problem of it being a college administration pussying out whenever a case involves some kind of liability or monetary problems

    Here we pretty much differentiate between college time and private time.
    If you aren't raping somebody during lectures or in campus facilities during normal operating hours, then you aren't their fucking problem. And even if you did, it's the responsibility of the perpetrator - unless you accidentally signed up for a rape class, and I believe those are exclusive to religious institutions for the time being.

    Companies will fire employees if they say something offensive outside of work. Whether the college is culpable or not, they'll usually do things to protect their image. You can't change how people will react to this kind of stuff.

    Stateside our college kids are for the most part treated with kid gloves, no matter the gender. So they kinda shield either group from real consequences. Unless it gets so big they can't sweep it under the rug.

    Case in point, there's a big push for Greek organizations to do away with keggers cuz freshmen trying to impress the frat will chug stupid amounts, then nearly die (or actually die) from alcohol poisoning.

    If some working class 19 year old went out with his buddies n got so plastered he ended up three inches from death, public opinion would usually blame dumbass doing it (and possibly whoever supplied the booze). But if a kid in college does it, he's suddenly absolved of all responsibility cuz 'lol Greek peer pressure.'

    Yeah the college should have rules against stupid/illegal behavior, but if these dummies are old enough to vote n die in a war, they old enough to be held responsible.

    This is half true. The thing about Greek life is that not only is it a huge legal liability, but stepping into those parties alone is dangerous because rapists like to take advantage of the large crowds and abundant alcohol by finding some low self esteem girl and 'picking her out'. In addition, frat members will gladly cover up a lot of incidents in order to keep the rep of the frat good. It can get almost cult-like with how loyal to the frat they are.
    Basically fraternities are something a lot of people learn to stay far away from because literally everyone knows what insane shit happens

    The college only overlooked the rape because ballplayers get the college a lot of money and for no other reason.
