He might be a man...but where's the backbone?

Of course, he couldn't have gotten the job had he had a backbone.
he new head of the women studies department at the University of Washington won't be using the ladies' room.

UW is tapping a man to chair the department. Professor David Allen will be the only man in charge at the 10 major universities that offer doctoral programs in women studies.

Allen knows his appointment is controversial. But Allen thinks he's the man for job. Allen says men can be committed to supporting feminism, too.

Allen is also a nurse and knows about gender stereotyping. He says his father thought it was an "outrageously bad idea" that he became a nurse.
Supporting feminism??? How self-loathing can you get?
