This is from the fucking government!

While women have made substantial progress in rates of enrollment in postsecondary education
and represent a majority of college students, they hold two-thirds of the nation’s student debt,

The group that goes to college more holds more of the debt from going to college. Normies think that reasonable. The Federal Government uses the implicit “but” buried in that “while”.

Well, yes, but fucking what?

  1. They hold two thirds of student debt because they have done touchy feely courses that pay low salaries so they haven’t paid off the debt.

    Two-thirds of college students are women. Two-thirds of people with student debt are women. Err, yes?

    The problem with all of these things is that the decision makers consist 80% of people who are essentially innumerate, immune to logic, and incapable of thinking an issue through to understand even why things are as they are. 20% of them are capable of it and know exactly what they are doing.

    No, there are not two women for every man in college (at least, not yet).
    Andrew M is nearly totally correct. There is a tiny proportion of the unequal division of debt resulting from the allocation of sports scholarships to those capable of playing American Football which is indirect sex discrimination (also indirect racial discrimination but as it is in favour of African-Americans, nobody complains).

  5. Most colleges have to give as many scholarships to women as men these days in sport.

    Hence why college soccer hoovers up so many of the world’s top female players (but none of the male ones). Also true for women’s gymnastics etc.

    Well yes, the top male players, even the American ones, are earning small (or not small) fortunes playing club football (I can’t bring myself to call it soccer).

  7. Soccer is a perfectly cromulent British word. Originated in the Varsities on the late 1800s to distinguish between the two main forms of football in the days when that word, quite properly, encompassed rugger as well as soccer in popular usage. The cringe away from soccer as an Americanism dates from the early ’90s or late ’80s at the earliest.

  8. Indeed, TomJ, it was an Oxford style in casual conversation to abbreviate words and add -er. So Rugby Football became Rugger, and Association Football became Soccer.
