With all the things one can study in college and the courses one can take that have practical or artistic value (Thermodynamics, Immunology, Investments, Child Psychology, Musical Composition, Construction Estimating, English Composition, History of the World Wars, etc.), some schools might offer a major/minor in Feminist or Women's Studies.

Would you date a woman who zealously took up such a major/minor?

I've never seen what their curriculum looks like (FS ~ Feminist Studies), but I could only imagine:

FS 101 Intro to Women's Studies
FS 102 Psychological Issues pertinent to Women

FS 201 From Emancipation to Empowerment
FS 202 Woman as Victim through the Ages
FS 203 Women and Violence through the Ages

FS 301 Women's Contributions to Literature
FS 302 Sexual Fluidity and Gender Roles
FS 303 The Myth of the Glass Ceiling

FS 401 The Decline of the Nuclear Family
FS 402 Alternative Familial Structures and Support Systems
FS 403 Resources for Women
FS 404 Independent Research - Capstone project

I mean, what are they going to do with such a major, other than argue with you? They wouldn't dream of an equivalent curriculum for men, so why waste taxpayer dollars for something like the above?

As a conservative, I gotta say, that cirriculum looks scary lol. Imagine coming home to someone indoctrinated with that stuff. Yikes!

I guess it depends on where their head is at. I knew a woman who majored in psychology and minored in women's studies, and she seemed OK, but she had her moments to say the least.

They aren't wasting taxpayer dollars on the above because you completely made it up.

No more stupid than "Women: would you date a man with ED?" or "Women: would you date a man with small equipment?" or "Women: would you date a man that dips?"

It's completely different. This thread has made up information which isn't true and was posted for the sole purpose of gender bashing.

On face value, I wouldn't particularly mind. I would kinda wonder about her job prospective with such a degree, but the same would hold true with a liberal arts major.

I don't have any issue with feminism in its truest sense. I think it has been skewed and misunderstood over the yrs and the understanding of what constitutes a feminist has been marginalized into a caricature of an angry man hating shrew.

If she was a nice person and every thing didn't have to turn into a debate about feminism, fine, otherwise.....uh, No.

Really? I've scanned the course list at a major university and they have titles resembling that, more or less. Not only that, those are currently discussed women's topics, just visit B&N and read in the Psychology section. Let the guys vote, ok?

My roommate majored in political science and minored in women's studies. She has worked in commercial property management since we graduated, and recently earned her MBA. The whole "What're you gonna do with THAT degree?" argument is tired. Anything, if you're smart, motivated, and can sell your skills. Sky's the limit. "Ohhh, the bad economy, though" is a cop-out. If you can't convince somebody that your skills are needed by them, it's kind of on you.

Then you should have posted an actual curriculum instead of an 'imaged' one.
