Is “campus rape culture” on the rise at New Trier? New Trier screens controversial film to “educate” seniors.
The latest issue of the student-produced NT Examiner took on the serious topics of sexual assault in its May 3 issue titled, “Trigger Warning.” The NT Examiner is distributed quarterly by New Trier News, the student newspaper of New Trier High School.
Sexual assault is a serious issue deserving of a thoughtful and robust discussion. Unfortunately, New Trier teachers and administrators overseeing the NT Examiner failed their students by allowing one-sided, ideological views of complicated issues to be the lone voices covered by the paper’s contributors. Articles included, for instance, “How Do We Define Toxic Masculinity”? and “Roe v. Wade Under Siege Post-Kennedy.”
Of particular concern is the recent screening in all New Trier senior advisories of the controversial movie, The Hunting Ground, produced in 2015 by sexual assault awareness advocates Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick; the film was, ironically, funded and distributed by Harvey Weinstein’s production company.
