I THINK IT’S BECAUSE THE ENVIRONMENT HAS BECOME HOSTILE: Trying to account for the “lost men” on campus. I don’t think that efforts to “disrupt hegemonic masculinity” will do much to address the problem; I suspect, in fact, that the mentality revealed in this story is the problem.

I had some thoughts on this subject a while back, here.

UPDATE: Reader Andrew Berman writes:

I suggest that college administrators look to two organizations which have a spectacular track record in creating wonderful men: The United States Military and the Boy Scouts. The main difference between these organizations and most colleges is that they don’t treat men as imperfect women.

Good point.
