Roger Lott's latest piece in The Dartmouth student newspaper

Roger's latest piece starts this way and is available here:

This Tuesday, I attended a panel discussion called “What I Wish I Knew As A Freshman Girl.” The female upperclassmen speakers talked very frankly about their mistakes as freshmen and offered their warm support to the assembled first-year women. The event seemed highly valuable, and I was left wondering why no similar opportunity existed specifically for first-year men.

Female Dartmouth students have access to more support than their male peers. Female advocacy groups at Dartmouth include Women in Business, the Society of Women’s Engineers, Women in Leadership and the Women in Science Program, which provides faculty mentors and paid internships to freshmen women. Link Up pairs first-year women with senior mentors. It’s unfair that men do not have similar opportunities for mentoring or support. . . .

It never ceases to amaze me that when someone publishes an Op-Ed piece, so many simply attack the writer rather than debate the merits, or lack thereof of said piece.

Whatever happened to healthy debate that actually does something to improve or eliminate a problem?
