Slate and campus sexual assault

Trigger warning: this post and the articles linked to in it discuss rape and sexual violence.

Emily Yoffe at Slate has written an article entitled 'The College Rape Overcorrection'. It contains some material which is genuinely striking and important for anyone who wants to talk about systems for handling rape allegations in universities. But - as you might expect from an article with that title and a teaser paragraph which begins "Sexual assault on campus is a serious problem. But ..." - that material is presented in a way which is harmful and incredibly irresponsible.
