“Real Life Affirmative Action for Boys”

Post to Twitter

That’s the title of this interesting essay at Fannie’s Room. Note also that the author is a contributor to an amusing site with an ongoing Stuff Lesbians Like series.

UPDATE: See also this post at Feministing, which notes:

    The AAUW study points out that while more women are entering college than men, if you only compare people who are matriculating directly from high school, the numbers are roughly equal.

    Arguments that male college students deserve affirmative action are inappropriate because men aren’t losing out — it’s just that more female college students of “nontraditionally age” are finally getting the eduction that discrimination kept them from starting when they were 18.
