Don't Look Now, But Trump Is Beginning to Dismantle the Obama-Mandated College "Sex Bureaucracy"

High time.

However, this move is a little bit on the tepid side-- while the new memo will de-escalate the Obama-era Pressure on colleges to create "sex bureaucracies" and extra-constitutional kangaroo courts, it will not affirmatively roll them back -- just take away the pressure for colleges to create and perpetuate this bizarre system.

Given that colleges want to do this crap, more will be necessary.

Though, it should be said, with the federal government no longer mandating the sex bureaucracy, colleges will find themselves more exposed to lawsuits prosecuted by the victims of the sex bureaucracies.

On Friday, The New York Times reported on an internal memo published by Propublica showing the Trump administration's first steps in overhauling this "sex bureaucracy." The Times interpreted the move as "scaling back investigations into civil rights violations at the nation's public schools and universities."

The memo, written by Candice Jackson, the acting head of the DOE's Office of Civil Rights (OCR), reversed one part of the Obama administration's campus sexual assault policies, but it is an important first step in reforming the system. Under Obama, OCR investigated colleges when women accusers claimed the colleges were too lax on the men they accused of sexual assault.


"Whenever they had an allegation by some student that her Title IX rights had been violated by a college, they would not only look into the particulars of her complaint and fault the college for not giving her what she wanted, but they would launch a systematic investigation going back for years," Stuart Taylor, co-author of the book The Campus Rape Frenzy: The Attack on Due Process at America's Universities, told PJ Media.

"They would even pressure the colleges to retry accused males who had been found innocent before, exposing these guys to double jeopardy," Taylor added.

In other words, when a woman complained to OCR that her college was not penalizing the man she accused of rape or sexual assault, OCR wouldn't just investigate her case (assuming that the accused man was guilty). The office would also delve into the college's past, attempting to find previous cases where the school was too easy on accused students.
