American University, Colleges and Universities, Ex Post Facto Revocation of Consent, Feminist Issues, Sexual Misconduct
A new story of life at the University today strongly suggests that male college students would be well advised to restrict their romantic lives to paid professionals.
American University is requiring all new students take a controversial sex education training course or face academic discipline.
In screenshots obtained exclusively by Red Alert Politics, American University asks students hypothetical questions about sexual encounters in an online course called â€œCampus Clarity: Think About It.â€ The program also asks students personal behavioral questions like how many sexual partners theyâ€™ve had and how often they drink.
â€œAlex and Jen played beer pong together and she even made out with him,â€ the module prompts. â€œHow then could Alex have assaulted her?â€ one hypothetical asks.
The material teaches that women can change their mind about consent the day after an encounter, effectively leaving women with the ability to re-write history and accuse sexual partners of inappropriate behavior despite receiving consent.
Sydney Jacobs, a former student at American University, told Red Alert Politics she was threatened with academic probation when she did not complete the online training during the Spring semester of 2017.
â€œAs a reminder, any undergraduate student that does not meet this requirement will be referred to Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution Services and be assigned an educational sanction,â€ an email sent from the AU Wellness Center to Jacobs read in part.
