The article and the schools hide behind “diversity” and “affirmative action” but what they actually mean is lowering standards to let in more men with lower grades than female applicants. They are only lowering standards for male applicants —whereas the standards for women are getting higher and higher.
Harvard and Yale’s student population are currently around 48% male and 51% female. They used to be 100% male. Men aren’t doing as well as women academically since the 1950s and it’s a global phenomenon for schools to lower their standards so they can accept more men.
Read between the lines and it means as soon as women were “allowed” to get post secondary education, we immediately did so much better than men that they couldn’t keep up. It became especially noticeable in the 1970s when the school gender ratio dramatically changed.
“Because of the change in ratio, some colleges discriminate against women to maintain a gender balance. Their reason not to let the gender ratio drift further is straightforward: Such a ratio would most likely cause a decrease in applications.”
(Yeah, a decrease in male applications)
From this NYT article:
Let me translate that for you: schools think men won’t apply if there’s more women than men. Statistically they’re right: men stop participating in school programs and careers that are full of women.
It’s not just Harvard and Yale or just the US, this is a global trend in post secondary education of maintaining a 50/50 male to female ratio at the expense of women and the benefit of men. These schools are openly practicing misogyny for the sake of misogynistic men instead of letting them fail. Society lying to men to save their precious egos and feelings —nothing new.
To convince society to support their misogyny, a wave of male propaganda articles were published with fake evidence that elementary and high schools aren’t designed to help boys flourish.
All of this propaganda just to dance around the fact that women have constantly proved themselves to be smarter, to work harder, and be more deserving of spaces in elite post secondary schools and the careers that follow them. If schools keep lowering their standards, women’s educations will not be valued or respected from these élite institutions. Having a degree from one will lose its meaning.
