So now universities in the UK who already have overwhelmingly female majority student populations are now going to further target getting more females into university , I thought feminism was supposed to be about equality.

Anger at Shami Chakrabarti's £500,000 fund to help girls get into university
Its about time males of all ages wake up and demand Equality for males . If it was okay for women to demand equality where there was inequality then males have the equal right to demand equality .

Even some women getting fed up with the endless everything is sexism narrative we are see wall to wall in all the media these days , there was a woman on the Sky News paper review saying the same thing thing a few weeks back.

Pick up any newspaper today and you’ll find no end of stories about quotas, the gender pay gap, new government initiatives to ensure females are protected from the slightest offence. As if we are incapable of standing up for ourselves.
We didn’t need patronising quotas, effectively a leg-up in a modern world where we can do it on our own. We wanted an equal playing field, not an advantage.
We, who see it as patronising and victimising of women, and who want to stand up and break away from the increasing illogic, saying: “Not in my name.

It should be based on merit and qualifications anything else is patronising to women, im sure most of them want to earn their position not get them because they happened to be born with a certain pair of genitals.

You know you can change your gender on paper for a small fee?

Just saying...

Could come in handy close to promotion time! Especially if its just you and another guy going for the job. :)

WTF are cis-gendered men?
Originally, it was a just a medical term, meaning the doctors had corrrectly assigned the gender of a baby when born. Clue - they don't always, because you can be "intersex" ie possess the secondary sexual characteristics of both genders. Then there is also the medical term "transgender", which refers to people who possess the chromosomes and primary sexual characteristics of one gender, but your brain structure causes you to identify with the opposite gender. These are all real and well-known to medical investigators.

Now all these terms means whatever the f*uck you want them to mean, certainly not the scientific meaning.
