Stanford University Under Investigation For Sex Bias—Against Men

Stanford University is being investigated by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) for bias against men. According to the complaint filed with the OCR, the elite school offers several programs to support women and no equivalents for men. The Stanford women’s programs are just the latest in a long list of university-based women’s initiatives under fire for violating regulations that prohibit sex discrimination.

Kursat Pekgoz, CEO of Doruk, a Turkish real estate company and James Moore, a Stanford alumnus and an emeritus professor at the University of Southern California (USC), filed the complaints against Stanford. The two met when Pekgoz was a graduate student at USC. The pair believe the Stanford programs violate Title IX of the Civil Rights Act, which protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in education programs that receive federal financial assistance—that includes almost all colleges and universities in the U.S.

The original claim against Stanford included complaints regarding 27 Stanford programs that Moore and Pekgoz believed violated Title IX. This month, the Office of Civil Rights officially opened an investigation into five of these programs: Stanford’s Women in Business, Women in Stanford Law, Stanford Women in Design, Stanford Society of Women Engineers and the Gabilan Provost’s Discretionary Fund.

Pekgoz and Moore claimed that the four organizations are illegal because their names imply they exclude men, all their members are women, and Stanford offers no similar support programs for men. Their beef with the provost’s fund is that it supports the hiring and retention of female faculty, but not male faculty, in the sciences and engineering. Stanford University did not respond to requests for comment about the allegations.

According to the complaint, the programs supporting women are outdated because women now outnumber men in college programs. Women in the United States have indeed earned more bachelor’s degrees than men since the mid-1980s. Women also outperform men academically, earning higher GPAs in high school and college. Even in male-dominated STEM fields, there’s evidence women’s grades are better than men’s. Regarding graduate school, women have outnumbered men in law school since 2016 and medical school since 2019.

“According to the complaint, the programs supporting women are outdated because women now outnumber men in college programs.”

Nothing is more permanent than a temporary government remedy.

Society of Women Engineers is extremely discriminatory. Companies want to hire female engineers without being to obviously discriminatory about it. The young women from colleges go to SWE meetings and on the flights back their phones are blowing up with job offers. Many men graduate without a job. This is what we were told by a woman on a campus tour of the engineering dept. (of another school not Stanford) for one of my children.

I have said for many years that young white men were the class uniquely screwed in this country. As noted, women college graduates have outnumbered men by a lot, perhaps around 60/40 now. Even worse, the non-college education market has changed a lot. No trade schools like in the old days. Hispanics dominate the home construction and improvement fields. I had two brothers-in-law with gas station/auto mechanic businesses, long since a dying business. Finally, most definitely the wrong skin color, discriminated against right and left.

This is very strange news. Why would this administration investigate such a complaint? This is the sort of investigation that DOE would have undertaken under De Vos. It would have done so reluctantly, but under orders. But now that Trump and De Vos are gone, why would Miguel Cardona’s DOE actually do the right thing? Is there something going on beneath the surface?!

Given that “men” will probably take over these programs, the point is probably moot.

Their lawyer needs to start the first meeting by asking how Stanford defines the term “woman”.

Of course Stanford discriminates against:
Male
Christian
White
Conservative
