Men's Rights Jerks Submit Phony Rape Reports To Occidental College

After being accused of discouraging students to report rapes and admitting to keeping rapes on campus secret, Occidental College tried to make it easier for people to report rape on campus. The college created an online form that would make it easy to anonymously report sexual assault—and now it is this form that Men's Rights Activists have decided to spam.

Occidental spokesman Jim Tranquada told LAist that the college noticed a problem starting on Monday night: they received about 400 reports over the course of 36 hours. And this is at a liberal arts schol with just under 2,200 students. And some of the reports were obviously phony. The volume alone was a sign that something was off, but so were the accusations: some reported that "feminists" or names like "Fattie McFatFat" had assaulted them. At first, the college wasn't sure where all the reports were coming from, but then some third parties did let the college know that they were being targeted by Men's Rights Activists.

A Redditor named ShitlordDon linked to the anonymous online form on the MensRights subreddit and wrote: "Feminists at Occidental College created an online form to anonymously report rape/sexual assault. You just fill out a form and the person is called into the office on a rape charge. The 'victim' never has to prove anything or reveal their identity."
