Rape victim might be expelled for speaking out against attacker

26 posts in this topic

An American college student is facing expulsion for publicly speaking out about being raped – even though she never once mentioned the name of her alleged attacker.

Landen Gambill, a sophomore at the University of North Carolina, said the university sent her an e-mail informing her that she was being charged with an Honor Code violation for “intimidating” her alleged rapist by speaking about her assault and the school’s treatment of the case. Such a violation could lead to her expulsion from the university – even though she never revealed her alleged rapist’s name publicly.

“Obviously, I’m afraid. I never meant to make anyone mad at me [by speaking out],” Gambill told the Huffington Post. “I’m mostly surprised at just how crazy it is, that they’re willing to charge me with something just because my rapist is feeling uncomfortable.”

Strike 2 for UNC

Unless she is a "rabbit boiler", then the school will certainly and rightly lose face.

Years ago, that is what we called girls who were a bit "unpredictable". Rabbit boilers was just a saying with our group.

Assuming you saw the movie

I understand rape is rape, no means no, and if consent isn't given, then it is rape. But, her situation is awfully complicated to just write it off as rape. Anytime you're accusing an ex- or former-lover, odds are there is more behind the story.

That being said, I don't get the Honor Code charges if she didn't use his name. But, she is coming off as a bit unstable.

Russia today? Does anybody besides Venom actually read that crap?

That being said, I did look this up. On the surface, it seems really odd. She claims she was raped, but instead of filing a criminal charge, she takes him to honor court? Rape is a serious crime, but she wants him penalized by getting bad grades or expelled? And then once she made that dubious decision, she refused to live by the results of it? Also, from what a UNC friend told me, if she is being charged with a violation of the honor code, then it would have to come from another student, not from the University. More than likely, its coming from the ex boyfriend.

She may be telling the truth, but on the surface, the events seem rather odd.

Sounds more like a pissing match than anything, but rape is heavily under-reported and covered up at all universities. With NC State it just happens to mainly occur with farm animals.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
