NCFM President Harry Crouch, Update on Office of Civil Rights Complaint against Georgetown University

Georgetown University, women programs and NCFM complaint

On October 4, 2018 the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education received our complaint against Georgetown University.

We received a response October 11, 2018.

OCR is opening several of our allegations for investigation concerning Georgetown’s Women’s Center, Georgetown’s Women Alliance, Georgetown University in Medicine, Women’s Forum at Georgetown, Georgetown Women of Color, Women Who Code, and Women in Technology.

Also, whether Georgetown expresses an unlawful reference for women in its employment and hiring practices and/or violated Title IX in connection with any of the opportunities, programs, or initiatives associated with the above.

To be clear, “opening” an investigation does not imply OCR has made any determinations.

Our complaint alleged other violations which OCR chose not to investigate. The school has a lengthy list of programs for women and virtually nothing significant for men outside of sports.

We also complained about Georgetown Professor Christine Fair. You may remember that as an Associate Professor she gained national attention calling for the “miserable deaths” of GOP Senators in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh trial last September. She was also running a Twitter site where she published the names and other personal information about men with whom she disagreed, a process she apparently employed as a “mental sport.” She had the now defunct Tumbler site “ShitMenSay.”

In our OCR complaint we alleged that she “openly called for violence and terrorism against men as a class… and several specific men.” The OCR complaint is silent re Professor Fair. Apparently, after a year’s sabbatical and according to a recent PJ media article the professor is scheduled once again to teach classes. We still think she should be fired and not allowed to continue to spread misandry and other baseless ideologies. PJ Media reporter Toni Airaksinen did an outstanding job investigating and reporting the Professor Fair [sic] story.

We would like to thank Kursat Pekgoz for doing the initial research and draft of this complaint, as well as several NCFM members who helped with editing and fact checking, the latter of which took considerable time. We are excited that OCR found sufficient substance to investigate many of our concerns.

    Regarding the case against Georgetown University, unless there have been policy changes at DOE OCR since two years ago, it is my understanding, as a complainant of sexual discrimination and bogus claims of sexual harassment. (I was nearsighted not knowing of my need for eyeglasses and a coed claimed that I “sexually ogled” her when, in fact, she was a blur to me; several weeks later, her friend invited me to watch a movie with a group on the women’s floor lounge with a bunch of other females and males and after watching for two hours, I stood up, became dizzy from orthostatic-hypotension, fell toward her, placing my left hand on her left knee, and was accused of sexual touching instead of thanking me for not falling on her and asking if I was ok).

    There were other complaints not related specifically to men’s issues and failure to protect me, a pacifist, from two men who routinely annoyed, harassed, and beat me on campus during a two year period.

    DOE OCR read my writing, and then dismissed the writing. When I asked for an appeal, the agent at OCR in Chicago wrote and said that as of March 2018, appeals were written out of the handbook they use for policy education.

    If you receive such a response of DOE OCR, I am interested in supporting your efforts to overturn the policy as being a violation of the tenets and proscriptive history of our nations judiciary laws, noting that this would not be considered as a civil case for a court to decide, but given my financial inability over a period of years to find a a contingency or pro bono attorney. My dad is a retired attorney, then active as a corporate, business and real estate attorney, with no interest in my safety or reputation.

    This should be recognized.
    I don’t like gender discrimination.
    Women only groups? Doesn’t sound inclusive to me.
