"A faculty Member of the Women's Studies Program"
That's all I needed to read to understand the problem. My Ex took Women's Studies at Queens University, Kingston while getting her BA in Sociology (an education I paid for). Every Wednesday night when I went to pick her up after class she would be angry, abusive and literally hating me all the way home. . It cost me a relationship and my Ex a diploma as I refused to pay after she dumped me. Whatever it is they teach in that course is so anti-male, feminazi, hateful and deplorable that I can't adequately describe it
Needless to say any professor that would teach such a polarizing and destructive class isn't worth the effort to listen to and their opinion on anything is the anti-thesis of mine PERIOD.
She got her BA I wouldn't pay for her follow-on studies.
In the end, according to exit polls, the election result seems to have been more about the clear backing of America’s white and wealthy voters for Donald Trump – including white graduates, and white female voters.
Class has been a bigger factor in this election than in any election since the New Deal era. Trump’s insurgency rode largely on middle- and working-class fears about globalization, immigration and the cultural arrogance of the “progressive” cultural elite. This is something Bill Clinton understands better than his wife. Trump owes his election to what one writer has called “the leftover people.” These may be “deplorables” to the pundits but their grievances are real – their incomes and their lifespans have been decreasing. They have noticed, as Thomas Frank has written, that the Democrats have gone “from being the party of Decatur to the party of Martha’s Vineyard.” Many of these voters were once Democrats, and feel they have been betrayed. And they include a large swath of the middle class, whose fury explains much of what happened tonight. Trump has connected better with these voters than Romney, who won those making between $50,000 and $90,000 by a narrow 52 percent margin. Early analysis of this year’s election shows Trump doing better among these kind of voters. At the same time, however, affluent voters — those making $100,000 and above — seem to have tilted over to the Democrats this year. This is the first time the “rich” have gone against the GOP since the 1964 Goldwater debacle. Obama did better among the wealthy, winning eight of the 10 richest counties in 2012. In virtually all these counties, Clinton did even better. What does this mean for America’s traditional middle class, whose numbers have been fading for a generation? Long the majority, notes Pew, they are no longer, outnumbered by the lower and upper classes combined. Yet like the Anglo population, in this election what’s left of America’s middle class has shown itself not ready to face the sunset.

Here's an idea...
How about Liberals behave like liberals, and actually accept that any young person engaging in politics in a hands on manner, is better than any young person refusing to engage at all?
This is ridiculous.

What does that have to do with what I said? We've been hearing about the "silent majority" from Republicans since Nixon. After Nixon/Ford? The very next President was a Democrat. Then it was Reagan, Bush 41 for a term and then Clinton. Then Bush 43 and then Obama.
Do the math. Out of the 10 elections between then and the one we just had, that's 5 wins each per party. Every time a Republican wins, Republican voters go on about how the "silent majority has spoken."
It's not an actual thing.

I agree with you, but, many of these "useless" classes are paid for by making them required for students in the Engineering and Science degrees. The reason used to be that the college or university wanted "well rounded individuals".
