Encourage your son or grandson to get a degree

Based upon what is happening at colleges, a man with a brain should have his pick of well educated women.

That article was posted in October 2005. I wonder what the college gender gap is today?

Looks like the gap hasn't changed much since then.

Study of the Day: Gender Gap in College Leads Women to Prioritize Work - Hans Villarica - The Atlantic

PROBLEM: These days, American women receive 57 percent of all bachelor's and 60 percent of all master's degrees in college. Are there repercussions to having this gender imbalance on campus?

I expect that, in the not too distant future, scientific advances will render males unnecessary to human reproduction. It just seems a cruel joke to educate them now.

So you're suggesting that a man should only attend college to get his Mr. instead of his MS?

How sexist...

Besides, if these college women really are well educated then they'd have no reason to waste their time with us.
