The male/female ratio is 60/40? Maybe Subby should go back for a few more years and learn some reading comprehension.

Nah, he should go out into the real world and find out what a few years' tuition will get you in hookers and blow.

Tuition - X(Hookers + blow) = Y

Where Y is the amount you can spend on STD meds.

Go easy on him.  He couldn't go to college because a woman got admitted instead of him.

FTFA:  Perry notes that the Obama White House created in 2009 a special panel to to encourage federal agencies to take "into account the needs of women and girls in the policies they draft, the programs they create, the legislation they support."

Women get subsidies/special provisions over men.  Blacks/hispanics/etc get subsidies/special provisions over white people.

Sounds less like a "war on men" and more like "affirmative action" to me... This is where the debate lies, not on this ridiculous "war on men" crap.

One engineering course I had was in a room that had a social work class right before. I regularly would watch 20 hot chicks and all of 2 dudes walk out, while us 22 dudes and 3 girls (only one hot) would walk in. I never considered changing my major more.

Getting an education for its own sake, to learn how to explore and understand the world, to examine the universe and to be part of a culture that knows how to do math, structure an idea, and read a journal... not so important...?

At my university, it's about 60/40(DNRTFA), but to be honest, most people seem to be focused on school, their organizations and their friends and very little on dating.  Farking, well farking is anothing matter entirely.

I think it would be interesting first be to see the college application rates between men and women.  If you're a lower skilled man then you always have manual labor jobs.  Women typically don't have that "luxury".  I'd assume that lower skilled women end up in office space where a degree is often needed in order to advance which would possibly be a reason for some of the difference.
 
2013-04-16 08:28:12 AM  
If you could get the "MR" degree, then sure, it would be a great idea... But girls marry UP, in general. So as a guy in college, sure, you have lots of chances for sex, but are the girls really going to marry you if you don't keep climbing? The old "MRS" degree came with the expectation that the guy would be the breadwinner - well, if you are dating an ambitious girl, will she stay if you only get a BA?

Not saying people don't marry for love, or women don't often support their husbands, but the social norm still prevails.

That sounds great.

Of course, I stuck with my computer engineering degree. I work from home, I'm headed to the golf course right now, and the chicks I'm dating seem to like the sound of an engineer more than some dumbass that got a management degree to make 40k...

You totally should've changed majors for 19yo tail.

This surprisingly works well as a method to pick up hot chicks in college. The secret is to get them when they least expect it, such as mid-lecture in Art History class. And even if they are crying too hard to give you their name and number, you can lift them directly from the police report which is made public 10 days after.

Feminists are oddly silent about lots of things. Like which gender commits more child abuse, or which gender of child is more often abused, or who instigates most domestic violence. . . You know. Things like that.

Well... On one hand there this guy may just be correct in that there are more women in college than men, and that could lead one to believe that there is a 'War on Men.' if one was looking for said conclusion.

But then it's kinda hard to forget that most ofthe managers/ bosses/ CEOs are men.

It's the same methodology used by feminists to "prove" discrimination against women since the beginning of feminism.

I think the female equivalent to "ditch digger/warehouse schlepper" is "Walmart clerk" or similar low-end customer service jobs.  No benefits, no dignity, and a 22-year-old manager who gets to tell 50-year-old Phyllis when she can go for a bathroom break to rest her varicose veins.

bmongar:
And the liberals who go there are getting all the chicks.

Young Conservative men get angry because they go on a date with a woman, and after a couple of hours of listening to flinty-eyed rants about George Soros, sexist comments, and verbally abusing the waiter, she never calls them again.  Their sperm builds up to toxic levels, but they have a hard time masturbating pleasurably because their thoughts dwell on President Fartbongo's War on the Job Creators so much they can't envision a gratifying fantasy.  It's sad, really.

 Wow, you have let your persecution complex get so bad that you can't even acknowledge the concrete and inarguable fact that women have been historically discriminated against. That really is pathetic.
