Actually “feministbecky,” some women are solely valued for their physical appearance because they choose to be, not because “men are pigs” or whatever else you feminists try to come up with to overcompensate for years of gender inequality that, by the way, does not exist anymore. At least women have the opportunity to use their physical attributes in their favor if they wish without severely negative consequences. I would call this sexism against men because no man could dress to the degree that a woman does and still retain social acceptance. It is completely sexist to assume that men have more money than women to validate the cold fact that they have less scholarship opportunities. Many of these scholarships aim towards female students majoring in typically masculine fields. Women should not be celebrated for being interested in Math, Physics, or Engineering anymore than a man should. If we want to be seen as academic equals, then don’t make a big deal about it when a woman actually succeeds in a field that men have dominated. And the fear of being raped held solely by women has be the most obvious form of sexism against men. Don’t assume that only women get raped. Unfortunately I cannot attest to your comment about Women’s Studies because as a wise friend once told me, “Women’s Studies is a political view raised to the level of academic status” and I refuse to partake in such feminist, demeaning trash. So, thank you for your insight but it is clear that modern sexism today exists more at the expense of males than females. Feminism had its time and place (perhaps in the 1800s) but we have reached a point where women can enjoy the same opportunities as men, if not much more.
P.S. White privilege is a terrible form of racism that tries desperately to validate false entitlements for other races. I will not even touch on my fury with this topic because I could write a book on it. Thanks.
Wow… you are so ignorant its not even funny anymore to make fun of you. I’m sorry you live your life with so much internalized hate and oppression.

Last time I checked there was no such thing as “Men’s Studies” as a college major, no man could get out of a speeding ticket just by flashing his chest, and the proportion of female scholarships to male scholarships seems to be about 40,000,000 to zero. I am so sorry guys that these liberal feminists’ thought patterns seem to be stuck in the 17th century.
So do I sacrifice an A in the class by standing up for what I believe?
Or keep my mouth shut, pretend I agree with this load of shit, and protect my nearly perfect 3.88 GPA?
Oh, I just can’t wait for our “White Privilege” activity…
Men don’t have to walk around being afraid of being raped in every dark alley. Its funny that you talk about Women’s STudies but you don’t actually know what we study, (fyi, its men too) Actually, in most universities, there is a Men’s Studies (or Men and Masculinity) class offered. Flashing your chest is not a sign of privilege. Its a sign of being valued only for your body. If you look at scholarships, you will see that the reason they exist for those groups is because those groups TEND TO HAVE LESS MONEY. If you want to ignore facts and possibly get your grade lowered because you are an ignorant prick, go ahead.
Oh, and white privilege exists too. Open a goddamn book.

“Obama copies Palin, speaks English.”
“Obama copies Palin, wears clothes.”
“Obama copies Palin, is a politician.”
“Obama copies Palin, has children”
“Obama copies Palin, eats food.”
I may find this funnier than it really is, but damn.
You gotta love faux news.
