How about some fairness for men?

I'm glad to see more issues related to men being raised in the mainstream media.
Meanwhile, the publicly financed educational system is at least 20% better at producing successful female students than male, yet hardly anyone sees this as remarkable gender discrimination. While there is a vigorous national program to equalize male and female rates of success in science and math, there is not a shred of equivalent attention to the far more central practical impact of the sharp deficit males face in reading and writing.

There are countless thriving "women's studies" programs and only a paltry number of male equivalents. The graduates of such programs (which rarely pass the laxest test for gender diversity) staff the offices of politicians and judges, and assert the obligation of society to redress centuries of dominance by that gaseous overgeneralization--"patriarchy."

When it comes to health status, the disparity in favor of women is enhanced by such patterns as seven times as much federal expenditure on breast cancer as on the prostate variety. And no one is provoked into action because vaunted male patriarchs commit suicide between four and 10 times as frequently as oppressed and brainwashed women. This isn't simply carping about invidious comparison, or reluctance to support legitimate social responses to the needs of women as workers, parents, citizens and virtuousi of their private lives. It is solely about inequity in law, funding and productive public attention. There is scant acknowledgment that we face a generation of young men increasingly failing in a school system seemingly calibrated to female rhythms.

It's not just the schools, it's the society.
Males are bad, or more correctly hetro males are bad.
We did not do this to society, The socialists backed by the fem movement and the gays declared men are evil.
I don't believe your a gay activist
and this is not gay bashing, it's simply the truth.

Perhaps some lesbians have declared men are evil - but you shouldn't tarnish all gays.

Males aren't bad. People who put themselves above others are bad. I get treated unfair because I am a stay at home mom, and that's by all the feminists out there. There views were woman to be treated equal. Somewhere along the lines they decided equal wasn't going to cut it so now they are acting like they are the only ones who matter. Believe me all woman don't think men are bad.
