Impossible Thing To Believe Before Breakfast #9:
"Affirmative action at colleges and universities needs to be maintained now that more women than men are being enrolled, in order to keep from giving men an unfair advantage academically."
Okay, 2+2=4 on this one: there are more women than men being enrolled at university. Considerably more compared to when I wrote "Tangent" 14 years ago.
It's not really a "guy thing" to complain about that. It is what it is. Numerical parity is "Feminist Theocracy Dogma" but only until women achieve numerical superiority and then -- numerical parity? What's that? It's nothing with which men who have a clear-eyed view of the Feminist Theocracy find surprising. All's fair in love and war. Men -- myself included -- tend to be completely philosophical about it. Someone told me that Manulife Insurance downtown here is 80% women employees. "Oh yeah? How about that." Good for them!
Of greater concern and a development which has only emerged in the last few years is the fact that most universities -- as they are coming under complete control by the Feminist Theocracy -- are proving EXTREMELY resistant to tolerating even the IDEA of organized expressions of "men's rights" for the (to me) obvious reason that the Feminist Theocracy doesn't believe that men HAVE rights: that men's rights are seen by the Feminist Theocracy as merely a tactical means of eroding or reversing women's rights.
It's a perfect example of the Feminist Theocracy's core dogma that anything that doesn't directly benefit feminists has to be viewed as a threat...and eradicated.
They're just getting rolling on that one but, as with everything else they tackle, they're like a hot knife through butter.
As I say, I think men (as distinct from male feminists), myself included, are completely philosophical about that. Anything the Feminist Theocracy takes over becomes the Feminist Theocracy's problem to solve. The more butter the hot knife goes through and the less masculine participation it allows for, the more the resultant mess becomes inescapably the Feminist Theocracy's to wear.
Universities becoming Potemkin villages of political correctness -- instead of environments interested in the free interchange of ideas which is what universities are SUPPOSED to be, theoretically -- definitely tells us which way we're going as a society. And that direction is not good.
