Male rising high school seniors are applying to women's colleges in numbers not seen since shortly after World War 2 when some men were allowed to attend historically women's colleges on the GI bill due to a shortage of college spaces for men returning from the war.
High school guidance counselors and college admission officers admit to being perplexed by the phenomenon, but Concerned Women for America and a few scholars at the American Enterprise Institute say it is the logical consequence of the feminization of American elementary and high school education.
Dr. Transparent of AEI said: "When you raise a generation of boys to think that natural boyish behavior such as kicking teachers and setting small fires is somehow deviant, you are going to end up with young men who prefer to learn in a female environment."
Mrs. Sanfacon of Concerned Women for America was quoted as saying: "We need to be concerned about this trend. This is the fault of the feminists and no one else. When young men want to be in the company of young women, we all need to be concerned."
A senior boy who is applying to Wellesley who wished to be anonymous commented: "My parents want to be sure my roommate is not the Anti-Christ so they made me apply to a women's college."
