The college environment is actively hostile towards men, psychologist and author Dr. Helen Smith explained in a Tuesday interview with Forbes.
Smith has authored the book Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and The American Dream And Why It Matters, and discussed the effect that overreaching feminism has on men with reporter Jerry Bowyer.
Bower stated that groups who see themselves as oppressed since the 19th century have blazed past a goal of equality to exact comeuppance on their oppressors, and American men bear the brunt of this attack. Smith agreed, recalling how she was taken aback by the modern feminist movements animosity toward men.
I thought feminism was supposed to be about equality, Smith said. I was somewhat of a feminist, or I was very much a feminist when I was younger, because I had this idea naively that it was about equality, that we wanted to see men and women as equals. Instead, women today want special privileges and no responsibilities or very little, and they want men to have the responsibilities but none of the privilege. As you point out, theres the problem.
In her book, Smith referrs to colleges, where female enrollment rates rise as males drop, as hostile places to the average guy.
Theres so many women at the University of Vermont, they call the place Girlington as opposed to Burlington, Smith said....

College, in my day, as a great place to get your MRS
Now, not so much.
They never knocked God the Father off the throne.
American men need a lesson in God again. God has that figurative hairy chest. He isn’t the Breck Girl of unfortunate portrayals of Jesus. (And anyhow, Jesus toughed out the cross. Try that without losing it and cussing out your captors.)
UT-Austin apparently has “white privilege” week and teaching there is no such thing as reverse racism.
Shockingly, a black female teaching this
The feminists never wanted equality. A white Christian heterosexual conservative male is now seen by feminists as the enemy.

bonjour you cesm’s!
well we do eat hell’s cheese then surrender to it, all too often. and often we call that being courageous! agh, heaven never got outclassed by hell. we just got timid, real timid, about heaven.
If I were wealthy enough I would endow an all male college....no government grants or handouts traded for control.
she’s pandering to men
no, men don’t want marriage today because they want all the sex they want
When I asked my SIL what women really wanted she answered: "To run everything. And shoes." Men, take your cue!
Males are simply indispensable and any society that actively seeks to repress their special abilities will find itself on the scrap heap of history.
On the other hand, any society that represses the special nature and abilities of women is doomed to madness. (see the Middle East)
Males, white males in particular, have created the modern world and all its wonders.
Men are driven to create in a way that women are not. Without that drive we would all be living in grass huts.
I am certainly not saying that men are better than women... I am just stating the obvious here. The facts cannot be rationally disputed.
And if they did get to run everything they’d forthwith find it rather disappointing.
Deep Springs College
Thanks. Deep Springs sounds like a pretty neat place.
Colleges foster environments actively hostile toward:
So happens I'm a female with a father, two brothers (no sisters), two grandfathers, nine uncles and numerous male cousins, yet I never thought I was unequal to them because I was a girl.
The feminists, IMO, have insulted and denigrated the many good men of this world. They have brought havoc on families. Parents and children have paid the price, along with the economy.
