President Obama’s recent statements on Title IX:
“In fact, more women as a whole now graduate from college than men,”Obama wrote. “This is a great accomplishment—not just for one sport or one college or even just for women but for America. And this is what Title IX is all about.” –685,000 men and 916,000 women graduated from college in 2009 (the latest year for which statistics have been published)
How is this what it is all about? Even if you believe in the magical unicorn of equality (in the liberal sense), why are skewed numbers in the other direction a good sign? Our friend, blogger Wintery Knight, does not share in the president’s enthusiasm about the situation either and writes about what he thinks are some of the damages done by such thinking.
