Are Men The Second Sex Now?

Yes we are. Women have most of the privileges they enjoyed before the women's movement, see how difficult it is for many divorced fathers who want shared custody of their children, plus parity or supremacy in education and the job world.

Fast forward to 2009, and you find that women are now fully half of the American workforce. They earn 57 percent of bachelor's degrees, 59 percent of master's degrees, and half the doctorates. Females have achieved parity with males in law school and medical school and left their male counterparts in the dust in fields like veterinary medicine and psychology. Women serve as presidents of Harvard, MIT, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, and many other leading research universities. Today American women are among the healthiest, freest, best-educated women in the world, and they score near the top on international surveys of happiness and life satisfaction.


And in the best indicator of success that I know of, women live on average 6 years longer than men.

So what happens when a few university students decide to form a group to benefit men much like the many groups designed to help women? They are called women haters.

A third-year student from Lake Bluff has formed Men in Power, a student organization that promises to help men get ahead professionally. But the group's emergence has been controversial, with some critics charging that its premise is misogynistic. [Emphasis added]


Huh? So women can organize but men can't? Typical liberal identity politics, the recognized "minority" women must be defended against the repressive men. Men need to organize because there are specific issues which are male specific, like child custody, that affect a large minority of men but potential impact any man who has children. We cannot count on women or the court system to be fair to us because that has not been our experience.
