Jennifer Hammat, Univ. of Texas Title IX Admin and Fear Monger

Vice President of student affairs Jennifer HammatJennifer Hammat is the Vice President of Student Affairs and institutional Title IX administrator at the University of Texas at Austin who recetly told a local Texas media outlet that her University should be investigating 12,500 rapes and sexual assaults per year JUST on her campus and laments that many sexual assaults are going unreported. It is important to note that 12,500 sexual assaults per year equates to about 275 rapes or sexual assaults per week, every week. Sounds fishy right? I mean if there were this many forcible rapes and sexual assaults in ANY US city then it’s likely the national guard would be called out by the government, but Jennifer Hammat and the University of Texas at Austin appears to be happy to sit there with a straight face and report that.

You will never hear Jennifer Hammat talk about this, nor any official at the University of Texas, because talking about abuse against anyone other than women does not bring in the money or advance an agenda

However, we are about to educate you on why Jennifer and U of T officials are able to stand by their assessments of rape and sexual assault on their campus and we think that once male students and their mothers and fathers do their own investigation of what is going on with our U.S. University systems, they will be very angry and fearful for their sons.

First, let’s look at the official numbers on rape and sexual assault: 1 in 4 college age women will be raped or sexually assaulted and 1 in 6 college age men will experience the same. But here is the problem with these numbers, they are not based on actual incidents and are derived from questionnaires given to college aged men and women who were asked questions like “Have you ever consented to sex that you really did not want to engage in but didn’t say stop?” and  “Have you ever engaged in sex that you later regretted?”

Coalition at University Campus

Although you probably will not hear anything out of the mouth of Jennifer Hammat about women committing domestic violence, we are all too happy to expose it in this live on-going blog.

If any woman answered yes to the above questions, then she is the victim of rape and it gets counted as a statistic. And, to the average person not educated on this topic, it comes across that 1 in 4 women are out jogging on campus and a male student jumps from behind a tree and forces himself upon her. In the article above, we would like to have seen Jennifer Hammat and the University of Texas at Austin divulge that information.

In 2011, the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights issued a “Dear Colleague” letter to all U.S. Universities which basically said that according to the statistics on rape and sexual assault, universities are clearly not meeting the mark and they will now have to unless they want to forgo federal money and possibly face sanctions by the Department of Education under Title IX. In short, Jennifer Hammat is now tasked with finding 275 sexual assaults and rapist per week at a University with just over 50,000 in order to keep her job and her University safe from the federal government. This equates to over 1/5th of the students on campus. Or, put another way, if the University of Texas will find 275 rapist per week, they can get federal money.

Ask Jennifer Hammat and the University of Texas at Austin about their definition of rape and sexual assault

Jennifer Hammat - Title IX coordinator and vice preident of student affairsSo what is the definition of rape and sexual assault on college campuses and how do they differ from rape and sexual assault with law enforcement in Texas?

Within the legal system, rape is typically defined as the forced penetration or sexual assault by another individual, or when one person has sex with another individual when he/she is unconscious or unable to give consent.

Within the legal system, innocent until proven guilty is the standard by which allegations are adjudicated and investigated.

On University campuses, academic feminist define rape and sexual assault using the following parameters:

  • If a female has ANY alcohol in her system, then she cannot consent to sex even if she says yes.
  • If a female has ANY medication in her system that could alter cognition, she cannot consent to sex even if she says yes.
  • Absent any of the criteria above, if a woman says yes to sex, you need to get enthusiastic consent because she may just being saying “yes” due to patriarchal pressure. But what exactly is enthusiastic consent and what does it mean exactly?
  • Just because a woman says “yes” to a kiss or some other touch, that does not mean you have permission to kiss or touch her after the fact because she could have changed her mind during the course of the same sex session. This means if she said yes to a kiss and touch of her breasts, you have to get a verbal and enthusiastic YES to each subsequent touch.

Obviously, given the first two parameters, Jennifer Hammat and the University of Texas need to define which medications cause cognition problems and give male students some way of testing for these medications if they truly want to stop rape and sexual assault.

Also, how many drinks is too much? 1, 2, 3? Is the University of Texas going to start handing out portable breathalyzers to male students to help stop rape and sexual assault?

Where are the U of T guidelines on what “enthusiastic consent” looks and sounds like so that male students can learn more about this?

Does anyone really believe that Jennifer Hammat, in having sexual relations with her partner(s), actually gets a verbal enthusiastic YES for each kiss or touch? Probably not, but she expects your sons too.

So what is the burden of proof for rape and sexual assault at the University of Texas? If you ask the Department of Education and Title IX program, the burden of proof is preponderance of the evidence which means ABSENT any witnesses or evidence of an allegation, your son can be found guilty. And, as we already established earlier, vice president of student affairs needs to find a lot more perpetrators in order to maintain her job and federal funding.

Any of you mothers of male students want to trust U of T to make the right decision in guilt or innocence when no evidence has to be discovered to find your son guilty and the University under the gun to find 275 rapist a week to maintain federal funding?

In reality, and this is beginning to happen at Universities all across the United States, we are seeing male students brought before University tribunals based just on a allegation where he has to prove himself innocent. Why? because academic feminism says that in a large majority of cases women will under report or not tell at all out of fear, therefore the burden must be put on your son to prove himself innocent. If he has no video of a sexual act, witness to sexual act, or can’t produce breathalyzer results, it’s likely that Jennifer Hammat will be all too happy to escort him off campus and add another statistic to appease the Department of Education.

Other questions for Jennifer Hammat and the University of Texas

Title IX coordinator

We noticed on Jennifer Hammat’s twitter account, that she is VERY active in women’s issues and that is a good thing, especially given that women make up 60% of the students at U.S. universities. But as the Vice President of Student Affairs, should she not also address men’s issues? We see a lot about awareness and education of sexual assault of women, but ZERO of male students even though the government says that 1 in 6 college age men will be sexually assaulted or raped.

Are any of these issues being addressed by the men’s studies program, or is there even one at the University of Texas?

How big of a role does academic feminist (not to be confused by the “equal rights for everyone” types but rather the women must succeed even if at the detriment of men) in deciding if preponderance of the evidence was reached in cases where men are accused of rape and sexual assault on campus?

Will the University of Texas release how many investigations took place in 2013 where a male student made an allegation of a female, and how many resulted in guilt of the female?

Why is every bit of data we have read by the vise president of student affairs as it relates to rape and sexual assault always have a “she” as the victim and a “he” as the perpetrator?

Will Jennifer acknowledge sexual assault and rape in the LGBTQ community of campus?

Given the 1 in 6 number, we want to know from the UT Title IX coordinator how many counseling centers there are for male students who have been affected by this issue? And when the answer is none, why not?

If you know of a UT family who has a male in the family who is considering enrolling in UT, we think it is appropriate for them to read this blog and we hope you will share it with them on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and other networks to bring about awareness in ending ALL rape and sexual assault, not just those incidents committed on women.

Update 11/16/2013

In the past few days we have attempted to contact the University of Texas Title IX coordinator to ask her some questions of which the answer is obvious. We are curious as to why she did not answer:

@jhammat: of 12,500 rapes per year on your campus, how many perps? Is it 1:1, 1:3, 1:12 ?
@jhammat Are 1 in 4 @utaustin male students and professors perps of rape and sexual assault?

For someone so active on Twitter and wanting to have discussions, she is not very transparent. Which kind of scares us for male students asking questions that do not fit into the only narrative she wants to talk about.

  1. So the Department of Education says there are 12,500 rapist on campus and you must find them and if you do, then we will give you money or not take away money from you? Yep, if ANY mother or father sends their sons to this University then god help them.

  2. Typical feminist college administrator, the only way they know how to empower women is to demonize men. I bet you there has not been ONE single female dismissed from the University of Texas for rape or sexual assault, but scores of men despite the 1 in 6 number.

  4. I’m going to go so far as to say they actually WANT there to be 12,500 sexual assaults on campus. How else are they going to run a grievance industry, write thesis, build women centered programs, employment in the industry, and get federal funding if there isn’t? It’s very much like the pink breast cancer program. All these fund raisers for non-profits with little going to actual research.

    I don’t appreciate this college administrator putting a “likely predator” target on my son.

  6. Anytime you see numbers like 275 rapes a week you know there is an agenda. I mean come on, if there were this many rapes happening in every city and university our entire human existence would crumble. Someone is trying to build funding for an ideology.

    It is very dishonest to say 1 in 4 women are raped when a large majority of them are two college kids getting drunk and having sex and both regretting it the next day. We do need to pay more attention to this matter but I have a problem with this students affairs vice president saying there has to be 275 a week.

    • Well you have to take into account the lowered definition of rape and assault on campus. Just about every sexual act that happens can be seen as an infraction. It’s easy to lower the definition to get a desired number that you use to get funding and then build a political agenda around it.

      This student affairs president is just keeping her job while putting people’s kids at a huge risk.

  7. Rape and sexual assault are very important issues, but to attempt to stigmatize all college males into a likely rapists is exactly why men are not going to college. College is nothing more than a women’s centered environment with radical feminist there to teach women how to hate men and boys.

  10. As a woman who was raped (not on a campus) I have a problem with this lowered definition as it will certainly lead to many using the issue to bring false allegations which in turn causes those with evidence to have a cloud of suspicion over their case.

      And we have already seen a case at the University of Ohio where a guy and girl engaged in oral sex, she was videotaped by onlookers smiling and grabbing the guys head to pull him in closer. When the pictures ended up on the Internet she alleged rape to cover herself.

      Police got the pictures and tape and said that it was consensual. I too fear these numbers causing people to question them and that translating to a suspicious cloud over evidenced based infractions.

    • I suspect there is a very heavy awareness campaign by the University and this administrator to teach men not to rape. I doubt seriously they are telling them the lowered definition and that their case will proceed on preponderance of the evidence.

      If they did, there would be a mass exodus of men from college campuses which would be just fine for many I suspect.

  12. I have a real problem with any University doing a rape investigation in the first place. It should be handed over to the police. If the guy is found guilty by the University but the police declare it not to be a rape, then he is stigmatized and can never get into another college. And all it takes is an allegation to be found guilty on campus?

    Yes, exactly why men are fearful to go on college campuses. Have we not learned our lesson after the Duke lacross incident?

  14. Look, we do need to take a look at rape and sexual assault on campus, but 275 a week? This sounds like this student affairs lady is playing on emotion and hoping people will believe that. Most likely to keep her job, build her resume, and forward the feminist agenda that all men are rapist.

    If there were 275 rapes per week in New York it would result in swat teams and the national guard to be put into effect.

    Send your sons to the University of TX at your peril mothers!

    • James, you need to realize that this Title IX administrator likely believes that any heterosexual sex between a man a woman where any alcohol takes place, even with enthusiastic consent is rape. Universities as of late say that when alcohol is present, a woman can not consent, but the male who has alcohol is fully accountable.

      I agree that we need laser precision on rape and sexual assaults on campuses everywhere. But 275 a week is just mind blowing wrong, and the much lowered definition these coordinators are using is an agenda to remove all men from college campuses.

      It’s just that simple.

  15. Actually, the exaggeration was because she’s either mathematically illiterate or mathematically indifferent. She magically slid from “1 in 4 college women are raped” to “1 in 4 college women are raped each year; 12,500 would be about correct if that were the case (which of course it’s not). The correct figure should be about 1750, Of course, if the rape took place off campus and the perp wasn’t student/faculty/staff, it might not be reported to the university itself, so that figure is probably an upper bound.

    The next question is what that 1 in 4 statistic really means. It actually sounds about right (based on pretty good research) for the percentage of women who have been raped (BTW, I’m somewhat expanding “rape” to include all criminal sexual assault) at some point in their lives by the time they’ve finished college. It’s way too high for women who are raped during college. That pretty good research suggests that 1 in 5 (20%) of women have been raped by the time they turn 18. If another 25% are raped in the next 4 years, that leads to an absolute minimum of 45% of women being raped by the time they finish college. This is not credible.

    Assuming I’m correct about what the “1 in 4” really represents, then roughly 5% (1 in 20) of women are raped during their college years. That works out to about 1.27% of college women being raped each year (assuming 4 years in college) or about 319 per year for UT.

    In other words, if you accept rates that are considered credible by most mainstream feminists, Hammat exaggerated the frequency of rape at UT by a factor of 39, getting a result that, as they say in the social sciences, lacks face validity.

      • No, we suspect that the campus newspaper will take the political high road and want to further the agenda of the feminist that control the school and will want the federal money from the rape hysteria that campuses have learned they can count on to get federal money and Jennifer Hammat has to make sure that money comes in. We see more value in reaching men and their mothers and women in their families. No reason to get in to a duel over a gender ideologue when we can write blogs and reach more male students and the women in their families.
