Justice at Brown

Glenn Ricketts

There may be multiple reasons underlying the steep decline in male enrollments in American higher education, but I have to think that one is that so many campuses are literally "hostile environments" for guys. Through the prism of a ubiquitous and imperial feminist ideology, they're sexists, chauvinists, potential rapists, etc., etc., with lots of speech and conduct codes in place ready to pounce. It's pretty easy for the boys to get into lots of trouble, and - as KC Johnson illustrates in this piece about an incident at Brown over at Minding The Campus - well nigh impossible to get out of it. An outrage, you say, but one that's also becoming commonplace. How many aspiring college men, I wonder, might conclude that it just isn't worth it?
