In 1980 there were as much men than women in universities. Now, after countless reforms to make schools and universities more appealing to girls, there's 50% more women than men. But this is ignored. Men's need are ignored, only women matter.
Yep, its a genuine problem. But its not the only problem. And its sort of inevitable. Imagine a world where there was only mens clothing.and women had to wear it despite the poor fit. Then one day we realized that was wrong, and we started adding women's clothing. Suddenly there's clothing that's comfortable for women all over the shelves and its a poor fit for you. And when you go shopping there's less clothing available to you, because some of the shelf space that used to be for men is now not. (There's only finite shelf space after all... ) So you moan about how nobody cares about you, and every week there's less selection for you. Things have gotten worse for you. Its not your imagination. Every gain they make is at your expense. This "change" is an inevitable part of becoming equals. But your counting down from 100% shelf space. Your fear is that we've traded places, that women are now on top, and men are the disadvantaged bottom; and that nobodies noticed yet. But that's not the case, you've just lost 35% of your shelf space. That's sort of where the world is right now, we're changing to accommodate them, and the mechanisms in use are blunt ugly; often ineffective, and grossly unfair. (And I agree we're doing it WRONG.) But at the end of the day, by practically all measures, we're still on top. Comfortably. We haven't traded places. I DONT support these stupid feminist programs that are crude, ineffective, and unfair. But at the same time I do recognize that changes are necessary.
I do not understand this view at all. Wait 15 years and this problem will fix itself. It takes time for change to filter through the generations. For instance, white people will become a minority in 2043. It's going to happen, with or without programs encouraging more minority babies. We can see that based on existing data. Women are dominating college now -- that means that they have every opportunity to go as high as they'd like to, with or without additional programs forcing their acceptance into specific careers/positions.
In fact, the share of female CEOs of Fortune 500 companies has more than doubled in the past five years (from ~2% to more than 4%). The reason it's not higher now is likely because the people at the very top are also the oldest people in the organization. Namely, there's still a large segment of the upper crust of the working class that's from the last generation of women who were family-focused instead of career-focused. Although it's changing, Gen X and Boomers still dominate the workforce (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/05/11/millennials-surpass-gen-xers-as-the-largest-generation-in-u-s-labor-force/), and most Millenials are still in the early stages of their career. You don't get to be the heads of the largest companies overnight. When I hear these complaints that bitch about the lack of equal results vs equal opportunity, I roll my eyes. The writing is on the wall, but they want it now. It's unreasonable to expect drastic workforce demographic changes overnight.
Men have every right to be upset, because the future of younger male Millennials is potentially being robbed because of imbalances exhibited in Gen X/Boomers big picture demographics. By stacking the deck at the bottom (college/opportunities/etc) in favor of women, all they're doing is strangling the future of young males today. 30 or 40 years from now the ratio could very well be 70-30 in favor of women, and all you accomplished was torpedoing the chances/dreams of a generation of men. No one deserves special privileges. It should be a level playing field, with everyone given the same opportunities to succeed. If THAT is broken, fix it. But if equal opportunity is already there, men of this generation should not be intentionally disadvantaged merely because of existing demographics in the workforce or because generational change takes a long time.
