“Welcome to Caroline Heldman’s Facebook page! She is a professor of politics, Occidental College.” And here is a snapshot from that Facebook page, Friday:
Heldman was recently quoted in a Ms. Magazine blog entry about the spate of lawsuits filed by men who claim their colleges denied them their due process rights in connection with sexual assault claims. She said this: “These lawsuits are an incredible display of entitlement, the same entitlement that drove them to rape.” Read her full comments in that blog entry for yourself. We read them to indicate that she believes the young men’s civil actions are frivolous.
There is no indication in the referenced sites that Heldman has information about the actual evidence pertinent to any of the specific cases she has prejudged. If she does, she did not share it. That doesn’t stop her from convicting young college men she’s never met in the court of last resort — the radical feminist blogosphere — based on nothing more than her righteous ipse dixit.
