GREETINGS!

Title IX Advocacy (Pro Bono) on Behalf of Male Students (2016-2018)

Response to Defamation
 
My rights to privacy were breached by a partisan journalist, and I have received threats due to her dishonest coverage. I am posting the letter below to combat the defamation.
Despite the defamation, I have received many  supportive messages and e-mails so far. In addition, polls suggest that the majority of male students at Yale University believe in the merits of the complaint (61%). Moreover, the majority of Americans (69%) believe that men experience discrimination to some degree in our society.
 
Title IX
 
Title IX is a federal anti-discrimination law which has been increasingly quoted to defend the civil rights of men in higher education. Men are a minority in colleges and their numbers are decreasing.
 
Even though women are the majority, colleges maintain massive affirmative action programs for the female majority-- including female-only scholarships, Women's Centers, women's professional programs, preferences for female applicants in admission/employment, and Women's Studies as a propaganda industry. No equivalent programs exist for the male minority.  
Men and women experience sexual victimization at equal rates and the majority of men report female perpetrators. However, men are 95-99% of those punished under Title IX theory, according to institutions that release such data (such as Stanford or Yale). Men are often expelled with no presumption of innocence and sometimes for simply voicing their views. The majority of Title IX bureaucrats are women.
 
You may use the resources below to file your own Title IX complaint or contact me using this webpage. Please note that my opinion is no substitute for legal counsel and I cannot represent you in any capacity.
