The Wall Street Journal is about as publicity stunt-y as The New York Times’ Style section in terms of publishing articles guaranteed to kick up a fuss. But the WSJ, being owned by Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp (Fox News, etc.), leads with a conservative slant. This week’s case-in-point is an op-ed by lawyer Judith Grossman, whose son was accused of vaguely stated sexual misconduct by an ex-girlfriend at his college and subjected to a messy campus tribunal process.

You can read the entire piece here, but the summarized version is that her son was accused by an ex-girlfriend of “nonconsensual sex,” as Grossman puts it, “that supposedly occurred during the course of their relationship a few years earlier.” She then describes the “nightmare” her son and family endured through the college’s tribunal process. Her son was given written notice of the charges against him from the campus Title IX officer, listed in “a barrage of vague statements.” Writes Grossman, “The letter lacked even the most basic information about the acts alleged to have happened years before. Nor were the allegations supported by any evidence other than the word of the ex-girlfriend.” During the two-hour tribunal process, her son was grilled by the campus. Eventually the charges against him were dismissed — an outcome, Grossman implies, attributed to the fact he has a lawyer for a mother who was able to advise him on how to handle it. Keep reading »

  • Rapper Rick Ross has issued a more thorough and this time sincere apology for his lyrics about drugging a woman and raping her. Hmm, perhaps it had something to do with Reebok dropping him as a sponsor? “[F]or me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets,” Ross said in a statement. “To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it.” [Miss Info TV] Keep reading »

Hacktivist group Anonymous announced yesterday they know the identities of two rapists who sexually assaulted Rehtaeh Parsons, a 17-year-old Nova Scotia girl who died on Sunday, and plan to release their names unless the Canadian government brings her family justice. In 2011, Parsons was raped by four boys at a party and a photograph taken of the rape was then distributed around school; she was bullied and harassed by other students so badly that her family moved. Police did not press charges because they claimed to lack evidence. After struggling with suicidal thoughts, last week, Rehtaeh tried to kill herself and was badly injured; this weekend, her family removed her from life support. Her mother, Leah Parsons, penned a Facebook message on Monday, detailing the ways her daughter’s rapists were never brought to justice — particularly how the police allegedly waited 10 months to interview the alleged rapists.

Now Anonymous, which was involved in bringing the Steubenville rapists to justice, is getting involved. Keep reading »
