For as long as I can remember, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) has been the domain of radical, unthinking political correctness. A female student who was raped has come forward to talk about the ordeal. Coming forward made her rapist uncomfortable, and now the school is looking to expel her:
A college student now faces expulsion because school administrators say that she is ‘intimidating’ her alleged rapist by publicly discussing the sexual assault.
The victim, a female sophomore at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, went through the school-sanctioned order of filing a complaint against her fellow student and ex-boyfriend raped her.
Rather than remain anonymous about her sexual assault, she has publicly released her name- Landen Gambill- spoken in many news interviews, and even talked about her own experiences in front of a variety of media representatives at a public rally pushing for the school to increase their support for victims.
In none of those instances has she named her alleged attacker.
The latest drama comes now that a school administrator told Ms Gambill said that she may have violated the school’s honor code and could be expelled herself rather than the alleged rapist.
The threat of expulsion came after she joined a group of 64 other students and teachers that filed a legal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, saying that UNC administrators pressured them to underreport cases of sexual assault on campus.
The UNC system has a strange idea of an “honor code.” My idea of an honor code is that the administrators would have public flogged the bastard who raped Ms Gambill to within an inch of his life at mid-court in the Dean Dome during halftime of a men’s basketball game as a warning to others, his bloody body dragged off the court as his sobs echoed in the rafters.
I guess I’m kind of old school like that.
As a father of daughters, I will never allow my children to attend UNC-Chapel Hill, the rapist’s refuge of the University of North Carolina system.
