The Adventures of Mattress Girl | May 24, 2015

This week Columbia graduated Mattress Girl, a student who carried around a mattress for some time, even to said graduation. She was doing this as some sort of statement piece about the lack of vengeance against a man she said raped her. I use the term vengeance because the American justice system (or even the biased Columbia reporting process) did not find sufficient evidence to punished the accused man, who also graduated this week.

It is taken as a matter of faith among the feminist blogosphere that he did it. On one site, another woman who wants to stay anonymous, claims that she has a stronger claim that this same man tried to sexually assault her, creating a pattern of anonymous accusations. The reality is that we have a justice system geared toward giving the citizen rights to prevent claims from becoming evidence. It is entirely possible for someone to have done a bad thing and not be convicted of a crime. It is the flip side of this country’s belief in preventing the innocent from being persecuted.

Unfortunately, the court of public opinion is loose with facts and quick with judgement. The man accused of rape is suing the college over its tacit approval of the mattress protest. I suppose he’s hoping that the discovery process will reveal the stalking activities of Mattress Girl toward him and her apparent desire to seek vengeance on him for ignoring her. This also is a poor use of public outrage instead of jurist prudence. However, this may be the only option to nullify one scandal with another.

  2. No doubt, the women’s movement-turned man-haters (also, abortion on demand, but that’s another issue) is ready to hang the guy, much like the black race-baiters are ready to kill all police. A society of mental midgets.

  3. So suing Columbia in an attempt to restore his reputation, huh? What could possibly go wrong?

    • He’s suing for money. I don’t know how much it will actually do for his reputation, especially since he’s going to have to drag her reputation through the mud.
