Student Government and Center for Gender and Sexuality Studies to Show Discredited Film on Campus Rape

A story in the Marquette Tribune includes this short note at the end:
The CGSS (Center for Gender and Sexuality Studies) and MUSG (Marquette University Student Government) will show “The Hunting Ground” on April 25, followed by a panel of faculty and staff who will discuss campus sexual assault.
In fact, “The Hunting Ground” has been widely discredited in liberal and mainstream media outlets for its distortion of facts, and its attempt to convict for rape two fellows who are almost certainly innocent. See for example:
Are people who got to see the film going to be told about the controversy, or if so, will all the critics be dismissed as “rape apologists?”

When supposed scholars become activists, nothing good comes of it. And intellectual honesty is always the loser.  That’s the story of academic feminism.

Whatever happened to the Catholic "Splendor Of Truth"?

Maybe they'll assign, I Rigoberta Menchu, as a factual, historical account of Central Americans oppressed by evil Europeans. Hey, if it won a Nobel Prize for the fabricating, prevaricating woman it must be true, right? Thoroughly discredited, the book is still assigned reading on some campuses. What matters on campus is propaganda helpful to making various victim studies centers appear relevant.
