Mitch Daniels champions male enrollment at Purdue, feminists in an uproar | The College Fix

Purdue President Mitch Daniels’ annual message to the university community included a not-so-politically correct message: it’s a good thing there are more men than women at the Indiana school.

The Big Ten university bucked the trend of declining male enrollment, a source of pride for the former Indiana governor.

“Our historic average of about 57% men in the undergraduate population has held remarkably steady, even as many other schools saw that share drop to the low 40’s or even lower,” Daniels said. “There is no intention behind this against the trend position, and no mystery about the reasons. Young men and women select into various disciplines at very different rates, and the STEM subjects which are relatively predominant at Purdue tend to attract men.”

He made the statement in the context of reports about a gender enrollment gap. Daniels also made a remark about most nursing and veterinarian students being females, yet no one was upset about that fact.


In Sweden, I read, they have a very progressive policy of opening all professions to all genders. Men tend to choose engineering, while women go into more people oriented professions, like medicine and law. Go figure.

Feminists are vacuous. I think I will write a song about that.

Here's how to do it: The Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919

"A person shall not be disqualified by sex or marriage from the exercise of any public function, or from being appointed to or holding any civil or judicial office or post, or from entering or assuming or carrying on any civil profession or vocation, or for admission to any incorporated society (whether incorporated by Royal Charter or otherwise), and a person shall not be exempted by sex or marriage from the liability to serve as a juror”.
