But perhaps more important are the ways the tone on college campuses is changing. Men are now increasingly depicted as villains, intrinsically given to aggression and assault. Colleges, she writes, “have now become privileged finishing schools for girls. Except rather than learning manners, they teach women that men are the enemy and are treated as such on campus.” Smith outlines newly defined campus policies and sexual harassment laws (encouraged by the Obama Administration and the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights) that essentially pave the way for false “convictions” in kangaroo courts. Campus tribunals now require one of the lowest standards of evidence, the “preponderance of evidence” standard, to secure a conviction. In other words, a tribunal needs to show that the alleged perpetrator “more likely than not” committed the crime, by 50.1 percent. And legally accepted procedures of discovery and evidence also no longer apply. Even hearsay can be considered legitimate evidence in these modern-day star chambers.

No wonder, then, that many men are making the rational choice, whether consciously or not, to avoid or exit this hostile, sexist environment (and one with mediocre educational appeal to boot).

Perhaps Smith’s most intriguing evidence of hostility toward men is what she refers to as the decline of “male space.” Men are no longer among their own in the workforce, and male clubs, which used to be prevalent, were largely strangled in 1987 when the Supreme Court ruled that states and cities can ban sex discrimination by business-oriented private clubs. Women-only groups would never feel the same judicial censure. And now, Smith writes, in law and in certain social spheres men are discouraged or denied if they seek to form all-male groups. Men have no place to gather together, to bond, and to celebrate their gender as women do. This has led to their increased isolation, which Smith sees as a form of abuse. She writes: “When a partner isolates their [sic] spouse from friends, associates, and public places it’s called domestic abuse. When it’s done to an entire gender, it’s called feminism.”

What is the best way to fight this idiocy?

Young men have already correctly calculated that they should avoid the "hostile, sexist environment" that universities have become.

But part of the essence of being male is not complaining. So men are loathe to complain about overt sexism directed at them by feminists.

Some options:

* Create male-only universities with entirely private funding.
* Meme warfare, which spread obvious truths via humor.
* Moving to countries with less manly women.
* Vote for the election of representatives who are less hostile to men.

Others?

This isn't new. I attended university in the early to mid 1990s. Even then white men were guilty of a bunch of bad stuff that other white men did. Now it's reaching a frenzied peak.

Putting foot down like Trump and not giving an inch. I think that’s one lesson I learned from elections.

If you let left get away with stuff, they just push you around. Force new policies on campus?

That’s just my opinion there. Usually when a policy is one sided, it’s intentional, not an oversight.

Me Also. I thought it was a passing fad, and Anti-PC titles like PC Fairy Tales were fawned upon in the NYT Review of Books.

Then suddenly in the late 2000s it seemed to come back at quintuple strength. But I think it's peaked.

As someone who teaches at a university, I can tell you what I do. This might not be exactly related to male bashing, but if you kill one head of PC Hydra, the other will be weaker as well.

1. Students look up to their professors, so if I engage them in a reasonable logical conversation, they will think about what I said and will make the correct conclusions as most of them are pretty smart kids.
2. For Asian students who want to go to med/pharm etc schools, I show med school acceptance scores required to enter these schools by race. They go away shocked and lose any PC ideas they had before. Works exceptionally well for Asian women as well.
3. Same with white males.
4. For best Hispanic and black kids (we have a large amount of them), I tell that they will get preferences in admission, and I think that they should use those to get ahead in life - and that I think these preferences are wrong, but they should use them to their full preference as idiocy of govt/society should be used to the fullest. They also go away thinking very hard, as most kids are pretty innocent and honest.
5. If a female student wants to hug me (and ones who get good grades want that quite often), I tell that this can not be done because I could be accused of sexual harassment and as a man, I will always be guilty. I say that as a joke, but they go away thinking about it.

Good plan in avoiding touching. One reason is that an observer may conclude the good grades were a result of the displayed affection. Another reason is the hugger may come at you later with an accusation of molestation.

I used to teach at a "Historically Black College." I would point out that racial preferences are supported by people who falsely believe that black people are inferior, and need the edge of lower standards. These people cite ancestor slavery, past discrimination, and other experiences as to why blacks cannot be held to standard benchmarks. However, it is absurd to believe that any people, including blacks, are incapable of overcoming adversity and learning to excel. Kind of a slap in the face to tell a black person, who may be smarter than you in this instance, that he needs a "ladies tee."

Thanks @drB6 ! Those are indeed excellent tactics.

This is also a great insight. "Well, we know it's too hard for you to compete with the white kids since you're black, so we're going make it easy enough that even you can do it."

Instead of a hug, those female students need to offer something that is at least worth the risk, like a one hour blow job.

This is fascinating. Most females who I know don't buy in to this; they will also be victims of inevitable unexpected consequences.

Well, this is why men retreat to online gaming (I speculate here). It is the one last vestige of "maleness" where you can curse, be aggressive, etc.. and you are not in the public sphere for condemnation. I also wonder if the trend toward young men growing beards is back in vogue is another indicator of "maleness" .

College campus - generally too much PC stuff but most kids who are smart can figure it out.

Here's another excellent place for men that just does not put up with PC bullshit, preferring hard reality instead:
