Being a reasonable person is tantamount to supporting sexual harassment, sexism, and rape culture… as far as the Obama administration is concerned.
“Defining sexual harassment using ‘common sense and reason’ is a violation of Title IX, the Department of Education declared in a letter released Friday.
“The letter, released by the department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR), concerns an investigation into alleged Title IX violations at Frostburg State University in Maryland.”
Why is this such a dangerous “letter”? Because common sense and what a reasonable person would believe is an integral part of our Common Law tradition.
The letter explicitly states that “[T]he Sexual Harassment Policy inappropriately stated that ‘in assessing whether a particular act constitutes sexual harassment forbidden under this policy, the rules of common sense and reason shall prevail. The standard shall be the perspective of a reasonable person within the campus community.’ This standard falls short of the preponderance of the evidence standard required to satisfy Title IX.”
