Modern feminists are just the worst people:

The long-running legal campaign against single-sex education, waged mostly by feminists and liberal advocacy groups, has a new target: Washington D.C.’s “Empowering Males of Color” program—a new educational initiative that includes an all-boys school for black and Hispanic students. The $20 million initiative, “Empowering Males of Color,” is meant to help African-American and Latino boys. City leaders say it’s necessary to focus on them because they are far less likely to graduate high school, they are overrepresented in the criminal justice system, and their test scores are far lower than white students’. The programming includes mentoring, grants for schools that specifically target this population and a soon-to-be-opened all-male high school.

Modern feminists are the worst, Exhibit B:

On the grounds that it created a “hostile environment” for women, a college has eliminated a course titled “Men in Literature.” The undergraduate course “Men in Literature” was taught eight times from 2005 to 2015 at Springfield College in Massachusetts. It drew healthy enrollments and was reviewed favorably by a large majority of the students who took it.

Oh, no shit?

Can something be more open-and-shut than an admin asking for an appropriation, not getting it, and spending the money anyway? Won’t matter. Obots will still cry.

Unreal

I hope every state sends a letter back to Obama enclosed with the ashes of this “decree” saying “LOL Go fuck yourself.” The federal government has no constitutional authority in this area.

Trump caught on tape in 1991 pretending to be his own publicist, bragging about all the women who want to date him, because he’s totally mentally well.
