UBC is an institution whose primary motivator is self-protection.
Good to know that @KeithMaillard will abandon close friends and harass colleagues based on unfounded allegations. Watch out @UBC staff and students. #stevengalloway #ubcaccountable.
1. Non-Canadians may not be familiar with the absurd story of Canadian writer and former professor, Steven Galloway, who lost his job at The University of British Columbia following an investigation resulting from false rape claims..
It is not an offence to survivors of assault, to women, to feminism, for me to be innocent of the claims being made about me..
We have been taken over by a blood-lust in a search for targets of indignation. One of the saddest parts of this sad account by Steven Galloway of being falsely accused of rape, is the way so many friends deserted him when the accusation was made..
A man, destroyed by false accusation of rape, and then by the process of proving his innocence, speaks out. Elements of his story resemble some of the false Title IX accusation stories that have destroyed inncent young men. A just society acts justly..
Frankly it sounds like the other guy dodged a bullet. He may owe Steven Galloway a giant thank you..
If you’re trying to justify vilifying Steven Galloway because he over-committed as your thesis advisor, don’t worry. That ugly feeling is normal. But you can do something about it, something grown ups who have been in the wrong often do. You can apologize. #canlit #ubcaccountable.
The faculty association later withdrew its claim for Galloway to be reinstated as well as claims to compensate him for lost income and benefits. The issue of whether UBC had cause to fire Galloway was also dropped from the arbitration..
It is not an offence to survivors, to women, to feminism, for me to be innocent of the claims made about me. Accepting that I was falsely accused does not and should not mean that women reporting sexual assault in the future will not be taken seriously..
It is not the case that 100 per cent of assault allegations are true,.
The dynamics of a progressive witch-hunt. The ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ of the woke era:.
@KeithMaillard The basic fact is that Steven Galloway did not rape or abuse the woman who accused him of that, nor any others, as UBC’s investigation found..
Astonishing story of how a workplace investigation can turn into a Kafkaesque victimisation.
@rak_dr Hmm. That’s strange. A quick Google search reveals that you used Steven Galloway’s name in your official bio right here. And the counter letter you co-authored is indeed hateful - filled with hate for Galloway and due process. You lied. Again..
UBC is an institution whose primary motivator is self-protection..
A pretty compelling argument against social media bullying/mobbing..
Lots of opinions on Steven Galloway affair, but one thing is clear: UBC has over the years done an abysmal job of protecting its students and a masterful job of bungling sexual misconduct/assault complaints. Usually by underreacting. Except, perhaps, in one case #ubcaccountable.
His treatment was as a society that created the conditions that led to this owe him only one thing. That we encourage everyone to read his account, and if skeptical, educate themselves thoroughly on the subject. 1/2 via @nationalpost.
If we could go more than 2 weeks without *another* story about Steven Galloway that would probably go a long way in restoring his reputation..
They display their false virtue like the tail feathers of a peacock. - Steven Galloway in his own words: I’m not a monster. I won’t let false allegations define me.
The ordeal that @ubc and the #CanLit community have inflicted on #stevengalloway is horrendous. It is it stuff of totalitarian nightmares. And it is a clear reminder that abandoning due process is inexcusable..
Steven Galloway in his own words: via @nationalpost.
A lot of hellish insights of modern humanities academia in this but even this I found amazing. Imagine living under the warm cover of academia to get to the point where you feel intellectually comfortable dong this?.
@WendelSchwab @nationalpost Just to be clear, are you suggesting that Steven Galloway is guilty of sexual assault? Asking for a lawyer friend..
In an exclusive account, author Steven Galloway reveals for the first time how shocking accusations of sexual assault devastated his career — and his life.
