“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Title IX becomes a blunt weapon for Obama

Nobody would argue that women participating in collegiate sports is a good thing and Title IX went a long way to addressing the disparity between male and female access to athletics. Notice I said access, not participation.

But now President Obama has decided that Title IX should also apply preposterously to math and science classes by capping the number of male students that may enroll in those classes the same way that Title IX limits the number of male students who can participate in athletics. It's as if he thinks that men in those classes are somehow inhibiting women from taking them.

The reality is that women generally aren't interested in those fields, but never let reality get in the way of your social engineering agenda. Just use the bully power of the federal government to hammer into submission those who would oppose you. As with all liberal programs, it's about equality of outcomes not equality of opportunity. Here's what he said.....

From Moonbattery -- Obama hinted that Title IX quotas would soon come to engineering and technology, saying that “Title IX isn’t just about sports,” but also about “inequality in math and science education” and “a much broader range of fields, including engineering and technology. I’ve said that women will shape the destiny of this country, and I mean it.”

For liberals, no aspect of human existence is too far or personal to micromanage to fit their twisted ideas of utopia. We may as well go ahead and start importing still more Indian and Chinese engineers and mathematicians to make up for the certain shortages when Obama limits the American ones.

I hope China, Russia, India are watching. The results are sure to be spectacular and satisfying.
