Yesterday, the controversy unfolding over Alex Knepper‘s sexual assault opinion columns in the American University Eagle hit National Public Radio. The dialogue between Knepper, AU LGBT and feminist activist K. Travis Ballie, and host Michel Martin touched on Knepper’s homosexuality, the politics of sex at drunken fraternity parties, and one important policy point—-the lack of a victim’s advocate on the AU campus. At one point, Martin asks Knepper, “Do you find it at all problematic, Alex, that you don’t date women and yet you’re judging their conduct in a situation that you are unlikely to be in?” An odd question for a program that’s invited two gay men on to debate the topic, no?
