There is some pushback in the war against men and boys. At least misandry is being talked about. Maybe a men's studies program maybe a good counter to the man hating women's studies programs. I am sure the third wave feminists will object. Their goal is a world with oppressed men and boys. Some of these radicals would refuse to raise male children and probably abort male babies. Fortunately most women still love their fathers, sons and brothers. Unfortunately this radica group has taken over academia.
While not exactly an endangered species, men are in danger of becoming an underclass, the panel of PhDs specializing in boys and men warned.
In the latest recession, 82% of pink slips handed out in the United States went to men, and a good chunk of those jobs won't be coming back. Boys and young men commit suicide at a rate of more than four times that of girls and young women. Boys are far more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD and put on Ritalin. In the United States, women outlive men by an average of seven years. In Eastern Europe the gap is 15 years. At universities in the United States and Canada, women make up about 60% of the student population, men only 40%, a dramatic reversal from the early days of feminism.
Amid this growing divide between the sexes, 90% of the academic resources for gender studies are devoted to women, said Prof. Edward Stephens, chairman of the newly launched Foundation for Male Studies, which aims to raise US$2-million or more to endow a chair for the discipline at a major university.
"What are the ethics of devoting 90% of academic resources to one gender?" he asked the gathering and the roughly 250 participants listening in via videoconference. "What are the unintended consequences of the failure of our academic institutions to consider the 21st century needs of males?"
