Some Bad Advice from Stacy McCain

Although I assume this was partly tongue-in-cheek, but I must take issue with Stacy on this: Guys: Never Talk to a College Girl, Because All College Girls Hate You
The implementation of so-called “affirmative consent” policies means that every heterosexual male student is at risk of expulsion if he attempts to have sex on campus. College orientation is now basically an anti-sex training program where female students are (a) taught that all men are rapists and (b) encouraged to file sexual assault charges if they have any physical interaction with male students. The fate of “John Doe” at Brown University — banned from campus for making out with a girl he met at a party — illustrates the extreme danger male students face in an academic environment where feminists have ginned up a frantic hysteria of hatred. Because the number of actual rapes does not justify their claim that 1-in-5 college women are victims of sexual assault, officials are trying to make up for the “Rape Shortage” by inciting false accusations.

At Washington and Lee University, an official reportedly told female students that “regret equals rape.” At Ohio State University, you are guilty of sexual assault unless you and your partner agree why you are engaging in sexual activity. At Harvard University, there were six false rape accusations in 2014. The organizer of a “Summit on Sexual Assault” conference at Darmouth College suggested male students should be expelled as soon as they are accused.

This is what feminism means for college students in 2015: Every male student on campus is a suspected rapist, and every female student on campus is his would-be victim. A college boy risks an accusation of “harassment” if he even speaks to a girl. The smartest thing a male student can do is to avoid female students as much as feasibly possible.Shelby Emmett interviewed students at New York University and one boy expressed the fear of sex caused by “affirmative consent” policies:
“That’s what scares the sh*t out of me. Because if anything happens, if someone says I did anything or something is misconstrued, I’m automatically the villain, I’m automatically the bad guy, and it’s up to me to prove that I’m not — which is interesting, because in America it’s supposed to be innocent until proven guilty.”
Yes, college boy, you are “automatically the villain.” Feminists hate you for being male, and they want to see you expelled.
All the above is true, but it is no reason to totally forgo the pleasure of talking to your distaff classmates, or even more. Perhaps we should step back to some previous, better advice from Stacy:
Feminists, and How to Avoid Them: Getting right to the conclusion
Guys: Learn to take a hint. Learn to walk away.
If a woman tells you she is a feminist, say nothing and walk away.
No feminist wants to hear what a man has to say, and life is too short to waste your time taking to feminists. Just walk away.
Leave feminists alone, and then they can complain about that.
So the trick is avoiding the feminists, who will take all this bullshit seriously. First off, consider her major. If she is a Woman's/ Gender Studies major, forget it, there's no hope. Nothing you can do will ever be right.  In fact, most of the "liberal" arts are similarly suspect, although the degree of infection may not be quite as apparent. Most majors within the grouping "Art Design, Performance" are probably diseased as well, although some of the more concrete fields, e.g. architecture, industrial design, landscape architecture, and video game design may be populated with serious people. Within the "Life Science, Medical" only Organic/Urban Farming, and Environmental Science should be presumed to be infected from the start, with at least some possibility to be found clean later. Similarly, "Engineering and Technology" are probably cool, although they may be too busy studying to give you the time of day. While I'm not really familiar with them, the majors clustered under "Pre-Professional" look relatively safe. So it would appear the out of the whole universe of college women, only about 2/5ths, slightly less than half are likely to be adherents of the extreme form of feminism.

You might also consider the college. It appears the Ivies and similar elite colleges have nothing better to do than burn their outrageous endowments on trying to reform the human race. Good small private schools in fly-over county, and major state institutions outside of the East Coast and the Left Coast should have better things to spend their time and money on.

So, while there are no perfect choices, a little selectivity, and a few questions will go a long way to avoiding such problems.

I married a Chemistry Major 37 years ago, and haven't regretted it.
