Deborah Ramirez was sexually assaulted at Yale. That part, she’s sure of—she was on the floor, drunk and incapacitated, when a man exposed himself. As she struggled to get up, he thrust his genitals in her face, causing her to touch his penis. Bystanders allegedly taunted her to “kiss it.”

Then, it gets murky. Ramirez spent six days “assessing her memories” to determine whether the penis in question belonged to Brett Kavanaugh. She wasn’t sure. Apparently, it could have been anyone’s.

Many people wondered why Ramirez needed six days to “assess her memories” about such a bizarre and offensive incident. For answers, I suggest reading the 2012 book "Sex and God at Yale" by Nathan Harden.

Yale is governed by “leftist ideologues and free-love social revolutionaries," as Harden calls them. And at Yale, sexual assault isn’t a rare, unforgettable event. It's common.

I interviewed Harden in 2012 after reading his shocking expose on the sexual climate at Yale. An entire section of Harden’s book is titled “Yale’s War on Women.”

Yale women are constantly degraded on campus. Watching hardcore porn in class is often required. Female students are encouraged to take part in “porn star lookalike” contests during “Sex Week,” the biggest event of the school year.

The most shocking event Harden described was a screening of pornographic films in the Yale Law School. (Yes, the law school Kavanaugh and Ramirez attended in the 1980s.)

In the mid-2000s, Yale made headlines for a string of incidents involving fraternities. Young men marched around campus chanting, “No means yes, yes means anal” and carried signs declaring, “We love Yale sluts.” The hostile, threatening environment brought Yale under federal investigation for gender discrimination.

“Ironically, by advancing a morally unbounded notion of free speech, Yale may actually be silencing women,” Harden writes. “No student wants to come across as a prude or a killjoy. If women are publicly demeaned, some will be less likely to feel empowered to speak up for themselves in the public arena. For this reason, Yale has taken a position that is utterly incompatible with the notion of women’s equality.”

And, of course, this hostile climate didn’t materialize out of thin air in the 2000s. It existed in the 1980s, when Ramirez’s alleged assault happened.
