Man Hating Rag Rolling Stone Agrees to $1.65M Settlement After Smearing Fraternity Men With their “A Rape on Campus” Article

Rolling Stone has settled a lawsuit with the University of Virginia fraternity whose members were falsely accused of raping a female student in a Nov. 2014 article, The Daily Caller has learned.
A source involved at the national level with the fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi, tells TheDC that Rolling Stone will pay $1.65 million to settle the defamation suit.
The magazine’s decision follows a settlement in April with Nicole Eramo, a University of Virginia associate dean who was also smeared in the article, which was written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
In the piece, “A Rape on Campus,” Erdely relayed the story of Jackie Coakley, a Virginia woman who claimed she was brutally raped by a group of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members during a party in Sept. 2012.
Erdely portrayed Eramo as dismissive of Coakley’s case. But it was later revealed that Coakley not only fabricated the attack by the fraternity members but that Eramo took her allegations seriously at the time she made them.
A jury in Virginia awarded Eramo $3 million in damages — $2 million from Eramo and $1 million from Rolling Stone.
In an email provided to TheDC, David Moyer, the national secretary for Phi Kappa Psi, informed other members of the national board about the settlement.
Moyer, who is also provided legal counsel to the fraternity, wrote that the magazine will pay the $1.65 million settlement by Aug. 31. The Virginia chapter had sued Rolling Stone for $25 million.
Neither Rolling Stone nor Phi Kappa Psi responded to email requests for comment for this article. Moyer also did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

In the SRF broadcast “Arena / Reporter” on Sunday evening, women’s rights activist Julia Onken legitimized violence against men. The men’s commissioner Nicolas Zogg and the readers accuse the feminist double moral. She, on the other hand, sticks to her testimony.
It happened shortly after the first hour of broadcasting: Women’s lawyer Julia Onken, in the “Arena / Reporter” on the subject “Kast and the Kesb”, goes to the daring statement : “My God, a mother who strikes the old times when he is stupid “The background of the discussion was that Christian Kast’s wife Margie apparently became violent towards her husband.
A sentence that Onken does not regret, as she says on request – despite stuttering reactions in the studio. “It is clear that violence is not a solution and must be rejected,” she says. The sentence must be seen in its context. “The point was to say that a misfiring should not lead to the removal of the children from a woman .”
The watson readers, however, now throw the feminist forward in the commentary column of the article on the program of double mourning. For example, “Jack the Raper” writes: “You replaced the word ‘mother’ with <father>, and make the old man out of the old>, and I wonder what Mrs Onken would say.
Her statement is not true for a man, says Onken. “That’s something different with a man. Men usually have more strength and can defend themselves if they are beaten. “This is often not the case with women who are violently attacked by their partners. Violence, which emanates from the man, is therefore more serious.
Violence against men is impaired
Nicolas Zogg from the umbrella organization of the Swiss men’s and fathers ‘organizations considers Onkens’ statements “nonsense”: “It’s tragic. Her statement clearly shows how much violence is degraded in men in our society. “
If someone were to make the same statement with a man in the role of the violent, the indignation would be huge, Zogg is sure. “But a man is violent, it does not seem to be a bad thing for many.”
Statements such as these are counterproductive. “It is difficult for a man to sacrifice himself, because the role of the strong man falls into his own.” Such sentences as that of Onken to a prominent actor’s time are all the more a no-go. They would lead to a further trivialisation of violence against men. Also in relation to the childhood, Onkens statement is absurd, according to Zogg. “Violence in the family is potentially always traumatizing.”
“Postmodernism, particularly within the social sciences, has served a useful purpose in subverting notions of truth”
Postmodernism, particularly within the social sciences, has served a useful purpose in subverting notions of truth, and because of this, models of positivistic linear psychological development alongside concepts of identity within psychotherapy have come under great scrutiny and deconstruction. Importantly, postmodernism interrogates the dynamics of power, calling into question the relationship between therapist and client by challenging the notion of therapist authority in relation to their clients. With regard to queer theory in particular, previous notions of gender and sexual categories have been deemed thoroughly unhinged from essentialist modes in exchange for wholly socially constructed ones; identities based on gender and sexuality are thereby seen as specifying and limiting. Many queer theorists encourage a postmodern perspective within psychotherapy where identities are subverted and undermined in the name of freeing individuals and society at large – ‘fluidity’ is seen as the developmentally desired position. Psychotherapists, however, must ask whether the paradigm of fluidity and the deconstruction of identities are simply replacing one powerful discourse with another. Furthermore, should a discourse that comes from a philosophical/political background (one that is a-clinical) inform therapeutic practice? How psychotherapeutic practice and theory can take on the insights of queer theory while at the same time honour the phenomenological experience of clients, which frequently adheres to strong notions of gender and sexual identity, will be of great importance. Queer insights cannot be applied to psychotherapy in toto. A relational approach to rework postmodern theory in relation to the practice of psychotherapy is needed: one that reassesses the relationship of post-Foucaultian gender theorising in relation to an understanding that gender and sexual identities in addition to being specifying can also be personally and politically liberating.
