Waggle of the antennae to Feministing for the tip:
Feminism is to blame for forcing women go to college.
WTF is going on with college kids in Michigan? This article was in a student newspaper (Michigan Tech), for FSM’s sake. Dig this–it could have been written by a Victorian:
“Men have a couple of basic desires regarding the world around them; at one level they can see as two basic opposing desires, to build, and to destroy. Women, have a desire to nurture something that already exists in to full form….but men tend to emphasize building/destroying, and women nurturing.”
He goes on to say that this is why women don’t enter science and engineering.
Excuse me–Women lack creativity? We can’t create? We can only work with what’s existing?
I submit that underrepresentation of women occurs in part because the science and engineering colleges are full of A-holes like you, dude. I also suggest that the idea that you can’t be a feminist and a wife/mother is a false dichotomy. And I can name some feminist mommies that would happily prove that to you. They happen to also be scientists who have built impressive research programs.
And just to prove that it isn’t just Michigan that has ass-hat college boys:
Yep, they blocked access to the Women’s Center that provides rape crisis counseling to students, holding a sign saying “we like Yale sluts” and chanting “dick.”
