So in 1972, 17% fewer women than men graduated from college…

It was an emergency–one that demanded Federal action to level this grave injustice!

So we get the Education Amendments of 1972, Public Law No. 92-318, 86 Stat. 235 (june 23, 1972, codified at 20 U. S. C. sections 1681 through 1688, aka the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act–legislation intended to “level the playing field” for women in college.

In 2012, 25% fewer men than women graduated from college.

Our President calls this a “great accomplishment for America.”

Is it really?

So are we going to get Federal legislation to level the playing field for men?  My bet is no.  Because any attempt to “level the playing field” would get the same kind of “war on women” rhetoric going that we saw over being forced to pay for women’s contraception.  “Fairness” and “equality” are only useful, it seems, when the “right group” benefits.

This kind of social manipulation NEVER “levels the playing field” and ALWAYS produces winners and losers.  And once a group benefits from it and becomes the “favored group,” it can never relinquish its hold, even under the same auspices it received those additional benefits.  It’s a fool’s errand from the start and only serves to further separate us as a nation.
