U VA Gang Rape Culture Brings Generational Family Destruction

Recent allegations have brought to light a possible culture of sexual abuse and misogyny throughout the Greek system at the University of Virginia, as reported by several news authorities including the Washington Post at http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/sabrina-rubin-erdely-woman-behind-rolling-stones-explosive-u-va-alleged-rape-story/2014/11/28/89f322c2-7731-11e4-bd1b-03009bd3e984_story.html, the Virginian Pilot throughout the past week, and Rolling Stone at http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/features/a-rape-on-campus-20141119, sparking a federal investigation, and student outcry ( http://www.people.com/article/UVA-students-talk-about-rape-allegations) as this culture has been seemingly promoted by the Greek System itself for decades and protected by the university administration for a lengthy period of time.  While the University has suspended fraternity operations until next semester, the destruction caused by such horrendous abusive activity reaps generations of negative effects for families.

These negative effects are pervasive and include damaging patterns of male aggression, rather than protection toward family members and for women generally; a severe loss of health, dignity and personal esteem for victimized women; and dysfunctional future marriages and parenting for all involved.  Learn more about this destruction to families, to intimate relationships between men and women generally, and to romance itself at section III of the article at http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2441274 . Generational family destruction is a pattern that can be broken at any point, allowing for the reestablishment of good patterns based on healthy and positive reactions by individuals. Viewed on a grand scale this type of repatterning requires a shift in culture, for individuals, for the University of Virginia, and for campuses across the national university culture.  It would rightly be spearheaded by men who stand up as men to hold all men accountable for their behavior and attitudes.  Individual, campus, and family restoration is possible, even for such evil and brokenness as is now prevailing in the destructive campus culture of sexual abuse.

  1. While Rolling Stone has retracted its original story admitting to a lack of complete investigation and research at http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/news/a-note-to-our-readers-20141205, may the University of Virginia continue its investigation into any abusive fraternity and campus culture to lead the way for protection of college men and women across the nation.
