With people filing, and winning, these complaints, I expect that more people who see discrimination against men will complain to the Department of Education, and maybe even hire one of the growing number of Title IX attorneys to file lawsuits.

The fact is, colleges and universities have been openly discriminating against male students for decades now, with women receiving special treatment in terms of scholarships, housing and campus resources. What’s really surprising is that it’s taken this long for people to start pushing back.

The irony is that these complaints and lawsuits might have the effect of saving higher education from itself. If college stops being an anti-male space, perhaps more men will want to attend, and save higher education from its ongoing self-marginalization.
