This video is really worth watching! In it, Tom Martin goes to talk to LSE students about whether or not gender studies is biased against men, with some interesting results!
‘Tom Martin began studying a Masters degree at the Gender Institute of The London School of Economics (LSE) in the 2009/10 term but withdrew after only six weeks, complaining the curriculum discriminated against men.
The elite university’s own internal investigation found ‘no evidence of discrimination’, but Tom, unsatisfied with their conclusion, has filed 200 pages of evidence, in a damages claim at the Central London County Court, for ‘sex discrimination, breach of contract, misleading advertising, misrepresentation, and breach of The Gender Equality Duty Act’.
Tom says “as well as teaching practices, sex-discriminatory learning materials were ruled out by the university’s own regulations, yet the core texts we had to read before each class, contained lots of anti-male discrimination and bias heavily focussing on and exaggerating women’s issues, whilst blaming men, and ignoring men’s issues. There was no warning of this sexist agenda in the prospectus.”
The university have filed their defence. The case is likely to be heard over the next two or three months. ‘
I wrote in support of Martin’s case at The Good Men Project a few weeks ago, and the debate is still going…
I will write more on this soon. I wanted to share the video and see what people think.
