Misandry on Campus
Nevertheless, and in flagrant, public and notorious flouting of the law, over 700 colleges and universities in the USA offer “Women’s Studies” programs but not one offers an equivalent “Men’s Studies” program.
Hundreds of colleges and Universities offer additional special help and support for women that is denied to men. Frequently it is called “The Women’s Center” or similar. None has a “Men’s Center” offering equal support for men.
Flagrant discrimination continues in the college and university offices of student financial aid. Most continue to award women far more financial aid and support than they give to men.
The English Departments at virtually all American colleges and Universities teach “feminist theory” but none teach “masculinist theory.”
National education organizations supported by Universities such as the “Conference on College Composition and Communication” continue to hold lectures and publish papers on “women’s issues” but none on “men’s issues.”
Hiring of faculty and staff at colleges and universities since Title IX was enacted has been very biased in favor of female applicants.
University medical schools continue to devote far more of their research funding to breast cancer and diseases affecting women, than to men. Almost no research is done on birth control products for men. Meanwhile men suffer higher rates of death from all deadly diseases and women continue to live 10% longer than men. Many colleges are currently promoting “Women’s Health Month.” Bob is not aware of any college that sponsors a “Men’s Health Month.”
Despite the flagrant, public, and open flouting of Title IX by virtually every college and university in the USA, the only place where our government does any enforcement of the law is in the one place where men have been allowed to work to earn their college education, the sports program. Men have been and are routinely discriminated against at the financial aid office. One way that thousands of poor and otherwise unfunded men have been able to attend college has been to sacrifice their bodies playing in one of the major sports programs. That one small slice of university life has been severely curtailed by the government as a Title IX enforcement. Men’s sports programs have been cut back at almost every large university, and women have been actively recruited in order to “balance” the sports programs.
Title IX does not mention sports programs. Title IX is about educational programs. Title IX requires equal education in the educational part of the college and university. It is time to demand that our government enforce the law. It is time to confront sexist bigot college and university administrations and professors about their open flouting of Title IX all over campus. It’s time for our colleges and universities to end their systematic and pervasive open illegal discrimination against men.
If you are associated with a college or university you can take action to bring these illegal sexist practices out into the public eye. If your English professor starts on “feminist theory” demand that “masculinist theory” also be taught. When your college promotes “Women’s Health Month” ask when their equal promotion of “Men’s Health Month” is going to be held. Demand that they provide you with a “Men’s Center” of equal size and funding to their “Women’s Center” and if it is not provided file an official complaint with the US Department of Education under Title IX. Demand a “Men’s Studies” minor with equal funding and staff equal to the Women’s Studies department, and again file a legal complaint and a public complaint. Ask for statistics from the financial aid office regarding funding vs. sex of students. If they won’t provide data assume that it’s discriminatory and file a complaint.
It is time for MEN to begin reclaiming our colleges and universities from the misandrist sexist bigots who now run them.
