IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS, affirmative action for men. Next I think we need a campus Men’s Center, and sensitivity training for professors and staff on how to make male students feel comfortable in the feminized environment of today’s campuses.
UPDATE: A reader emails: “I’d like to add one important item to the list: concealed carry on campus. Just think of it as the male version of the rape whistle.”
Hey, celebrate diversity! I’ve been saying that for a long time.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Another reader — who gives his name but I’m going to omit it in case it would get him in trouble — writes: “I teach at a community college that has cut its budget by 40% over the last 3 years. I keep wondering at what level of spending do we consider cutting the Women’s center that is staffed 14 hours a day and the Executive Dean of Diversity and Retention (it would be great if we could at least cut that last bit from his title….yuk). I guess the other way of looking at this is that we must have been spending about 60% too much already because as far as I can tell the place keeps running and my program is more or less the same as it ever was.”
