State of the University

I got an e-mail from my undergraduate university. Here's the picture it included.

The picture shows seven people. Six of them are women. The lone man is the most-marginalized of the models; he's watching woman go to college more than going to college himself.

I've written before about the reversal of sex roles in society. (I usually link to past posts I reference, but I can't find it right now.) A few years ago I read an essay in National Review that hypothesized college was a luxury that young women's parents provide for them, but since it is less-acceptable for parents to care for male children into adulthood, the male percentage of college students is falling. To be more precise, education has become a taco party.

KU's e-mail depicts the state of the university more accurately than they know.
