College President Warns Women Not To Report Rapes: Girls Lie If Sex Doesn’t ‘Turn Out The Way They Want’
Robert R. Jennings, the president of Lincoln University, gave a speech to students and faculty accusing women on campus of making false rape allegations.
“Men treat you – treat women – the way women allow us to treat them,” Jennings said. “When it comes time to make that final decision, we’re going to go down the hall and marry the girl with the long dress on.”
“And let me tell you why I know I’m right about it,” Jennings continued. “I’m right about it because we had on this campus last semester, three cases of young women, who after having done whatever they did with the young men, and then it didn’t turn out the way they wanted it to turn out, guess what they did? They then went to Public Safety and said, ‘He raped me.’”
“So then we have an investigation,” Jennings added. “We have to start pulling back the layers and asking all kinds of questions.”
He went on to warn women that rape allegations land men in prison.
“When you allege that somebody did something of that nature to you, you go to jail,” Jennings said. “I don’t care how close they are to finishing the degree, their whole life changes overnight. Why am I saying all this, ladies? I’m saying this because, first and foremost, don’t put yourself in a situation that would cause you to be trying to explain something that really needs no explanation had you not put yourself in that situation.”
Marybeth Gasman, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, slammed the comments as “disturbing, offensive, and sexist in nature.”
“The president blames young women for being raped by saying that when they have sex with someone and regret the act, they then create a story to explain it,” Gasman said.
