Affirmative Action Needed for MEN on Campus

By Debbie Schlussel
The absurd gender and race preference policies practiced by our universities have now resulted in the predictable:
THERE ARE FEWER & FEWER MEN IN COLLEGE–and even less male college graduates.
Today’s USA Today Editorial, “Big (Lack of) Men on Campus,” has a graphic with astounding figures. In 2003 57% of bachelor’s degrees were attained by women, only 43% by men. (Same numbers for doctorate degrees.) By 2014, the Department of Education predicts the numbers will be 60% women, 40% men. I think that’s optimistic, and the numbers will likely be even more out of kilter in favor of women.
Where are all those liberal voices–the ones we always hear screaming about “equality”? Deafeningly silent.
Do we really want women taking over the job market from men? Do we want a nation of stay-at-home, Oprah-watching Dads? I don’t think so. I also don’t think we want women dominating college education as professors (which their percentage of doctorates indicates they will). The few men remaining on campus will be educated by feminists who want a matriarchal society and hierarchy.
When phony versions of merit, based on accidents of birth, replace blind standards (like test scores and grades)–everything gets out of whack.
No surprise that, in an “opposing view,” Kim Gandy, President of NOW–the National Organization of Militant Feminist Butch Lesbians Who Want to Rule the World–thinks these numbers are a great thing.
Is it a great thing for men to be in the decline? If you think so, you should probably be reading MoveOn.org or this month’s “O” Magazine.
A nation of men restricted to working-class jobs, prison cells, and diaper changes while cooking dinner–while women run the show–is no paradise. But that’s in the future, if these figures continue. Is it right that men–who make up the majority of the armed services–are passed over by women with less stellar grades and test scores, who get gender preferences in admissions?
Time to get rid of preferences for women–and give men a boost, for a change.

Danny, why would you want to go out with chicks going to college? Think of it (Debbie being the exception of course) Most broads are going to college because they can’t attract a man, so they need their brains to succeed. Look at the top five wealthiest women in the world, would you date them?

No boost needed; just level the playing field, thanks.

I donot belong to USA.I live in India.Th is a sad thing more and more men are becoming househusbands not only in USA but in Europe as well……I think demoralization by left wing media and feminists has done it……afterall white men are not stupid.. they reached moon, invented Polio Vaccine and discovered Penicillin, made space shuttle,created internet….but it seems they have lost their confidance and completely demoralised and guilt ridden due to negative stereotypes created by media.
