The Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald is one of the nation’s most tireless myth-busters. No liberal shibboleth is safe. In the latest issue of City Journal, Heather takes on bogus statistics, feminist victimology, and the campus rape myth:

The campus rape movement highlights the current condition of radical feminism, from its self-indulgent bathos to its embrace of ever more vulnerable female victimhood. But the movement is an even more important barometer of academia itself. In a delicious historical irony, the baby boomers who dismantled the university’s intellectual architecture in favor of unbridled sex and protest have now bureaucratized both. While women’s studies professors bang pots and blow whistles at antirape rallies, in the dorm next door, freshman counselors and deans pass out tips for better orgasms and the use of sex toys. The academic bureaucracy is roomy enough to sponsor both the dour antimale feminism of the college rape movement and the promiscuous hookup culture of student life. The only thing that doesn’t fit into the university’s new commitments is serious scholarly purpose.

Read the whole thing.

It goes a long way toward explaining why liberal campus feminists have such little time or energy to focus on bona fide oppression of women.
