Ancient hate goblin pessary Phyllis Schlafly takes to the pages of World Nut Daily to propose NEW MATH ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES:
Long ago when I went to college, campuses were about 70 percent male, and until 1970 it was still nearly 60 percent. Today, however, the male percentage has fallen to the low 40s on most campuses.
You can see where this is going already, right?
…Colleges claim they grant admissions based on academic merit, and girls come out of high school with better grades than boys. But that doesn’t always mean they are smarter or more capable of doing college work or succeeding after graduation.
Let’s see: merit-based entrance requirement discriminate against stupid candidates (men) and are biased towards successful candidates (women), and therefor ol’ Phyllis is suddenly in favor of… quotas?!
So, what’s the solution? One solution might be to impose the duty on admissions officers to arbitrarily admit only half women and half men.
What else you got, Phyl?
Another solution might be to stop granting college loans, thereby forcing students to take jobs to pay for their tuition and eliminate time for parties, perhaps even wiping out time for fraternities and sororities. I went through college while working a full-time manual-labor job, and I don’t regret a minute of it; it was a great learning experience.
OK, that would put it back out of reach of low income people…
Another solution would be to reinstate all the men’s sports that were canceled by an extremist feminist application of Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination against female students.
And now I’m seeing the return of poodle skirts… OK, so college returns to being a (white male privilege) finishing school for stupid jocks?
The feminists have abolished more than 2,200 men’s college sports teams since 1981, such as wrestling, gymnastics, track, golf and even some football in order to limit the number of male players to Title IX guidelines. That removes a primary motivation for young men to go to college, many of whom want to try out for a sport even if they are not good enough to make the team.
…because sports are for boys. Left to their druthers, women would compete with each other using needle-work skills, baking for speed and accuracy? OK, now for the stunning conclusion about why this is a good idea for all college students. Wanna make a bet on what Schlafly says?
The popularity of the new college football playoff system illustrates how successful men’s college sports can be for participants and fans alike. But when colleges eliminate men’s sports, women are hurt by the resulting gender imbalance in enrollment.
And the essay ends right there, but the real conclusion seems obvious even to me: Women would benefit from this change because college would then have more eligible men for them to marry, and it would piss off the feminists. The End.
