University of Texas, Arlington Push Straight Male Student to Suicide After Officials Destroy His Reputation
“Guilty until proven innocent”
This is the rallying cry of campus administrators who try to appease the every whim of their “victimized”, precious snowflakes.
Too often now we are seeing instances where making one person feel safe brings harm to another.
Due process has been removed from college campuses and male students are the victims of this.
A young man was accused of sexual harassment on the campus of University of Texas, Arlington and committed suicide after the school neglected their own policies and punished him. The young man’s name is Thomas Klocke and it would do us all well to remember that name.
Thomas was accused of writing homophobic slurs on a gay male student’s computer during class. Klocke denied the accusation and even administrators knew there was no evidence to support the claims, they still punished Klocke.
An excerpt from Watchdog details the circumstances of what triggered this devastating situation:
Klocke said his accuser made unwelcome sexual advances toward him. Klocke rejected the advances, telling his eventual accuser that he was straight. The lawsuit suggests that this rejection led the accuser to make up his story, possibly out of fear that he himself could be accused of sexual misconduct.
Instead of seeking support services, the accuser reached out to Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Heather Snow, with whom he had a friendly relationship. The accuser was close enough to Snow to refer to her by her first name at times, and Snow quickly became the accuser’s advocate, helping him to draft a complaint against Klocke and conducting the disciplinary procedure without following the school’s Title IX policies.
Administrators who break the rules to accommodate the delusions of a student should be removed from their position immediately. This is a heartbreaking situation and should be looked at for reference in future cases.
