The Lost Boys

A report from a conference on college men sounds like a satire written by P.J. O'Rourke:

Edwards and Harris also recommended providing opportunities for critical self-reflection about what it means to be a man – “to disrupt the functioning of hegemonic masculinity” – including through facilitated student affairs programming and academic courses (a course in women’s studies, for instance). They recommended a need to build "cultural competence" for faculty and staff in issues of gender. While many in the audience lauded the transformative impact of small group discussions among men, one common point was the need for a facilitator who really understands gender dynamics.

No wonder there are fewer men on campus every year: ya'll are threatening to send 'em to Re-education Camps as a required course.

h/t Old Grouch.
