American women now are the majority in college, why do they still receive minority grants? Men continue to slip from not only the collegiate levels but also pre-collegiate as well. Still with men losing grasp with unfair advantages, feminists and pro-women groups push for further grants and organizations that solely benefit women. I thought they wanted equality?.......

Having a mojority now does not really mean that women after decades behind are not still behind.

Please explain, when they excel in academics, dominate many fields, and their numbers are exponentially increasing in science dominant degrees.

They shouldn't. Which minority grants do they get? There should probably be an effort to reevaluate things.

Very strange. There is actually a lot of harassment against men in colleges. Hmmm. That could be why they (men) don't graduate or they stay out of college. There is definitely a hidden gender war.

If only 1% of college students were white males, there would still be affirmative action for white women and minorities

Affirmative action is a pathway for white women to harass and bully, too. The protected class shields those from seeing and hearing evil.

We are all equals.
Eliminate the grants and you eliminate the discrimination visited upon us by our own government.

Because their is a huge liberal bias in academia. Conservative males are the new minority but the mindset isn't there to acknowledge it. This "BIAS" expert discusses this and gives some statistics as well as anecdotal evidence for his theory of a "tribal-moral community" that blinds people to current reality. (I think another way of explaining it is political correctness!)

“If a group circles around sacred values, they will evolve into a tribal-moral community,” he said. “They’ll embrace science whenever it supports their sacred values, but they’ll ditch it or distort it as soon as it threatens a sacred value.”

“the ongoing focus on sex discrimination in reviewing, interviewing and hiring represents costly, misplaced effort. Society is engaged in the present in solving problems of the past.”

Very good article that addresses your question!
