“The university was not impressed”
If women are so powerful and equal to men in every way, why do they need to be given an advantage?

Professor tries to give female students better grades just for being women
A University of Akron professor inadvertently devised a creative new way to insult female students this week, all in the name of boosting gender equality.
Liping Liu sent an email to his Systems Analysis & Design class outlining the “categories of students” who may see their “grades raised one level or two.” One of those categories was listed as “female students,” indicating Liu intended to artificially increase women’s grades based on their gender. In the email, which was first posted to Reddit on Monday, Liu said the move was part of a “national movement to encourage female students to go [in]to information sciences.”
In a comment to The College Fix, Liu elaborated on his reasoning: “Liu’s own classes have ‘one or two female students’ on average in a class of 20 to 30, and they are ‘not doing well,’ he told The Fix in an email. These women will probably have to ‘repeat the courses or leave the program’ without a grade boost.”
The university was not impressed. “While the professor’s stated intention of encouraging female students to go into the information sciences field may be laudable, his approach as described in his email was clearly unacceptable,” provost Rex Ramsier told The College Fix.
