OMG: Is there any sort of group like this at UWaterloo? Or do you know if there has been any attempt to create it in the past? I would be interested to see what the reaction would be like from university administrators and Feds...

  1. There was some guy on /r/uwaterloo who was interested in starting one. The general consensus is that he'd have to approach the Women's Centre and GLOW to make sure they were on board with his plans and the things he wanted to in the club before approaching Feds. He said he would do that, no idea if he did or where it went from there though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  2. The comment in the article is right, there's already a men's group everywhere. The university is run by middle aged white males. The ruling class does not need a support group. Making one just proves that they're whiny babies bawwing about the fact that some people are calling for fairness.

    1. 2, a men's group isn't necessarily a so-called "Men's Rights" group (I say this as a man who thinks such things are basically heinous, and entirely unnecessary for the reasons you describe). A men's group, if done right, *can* be a good place for guys to make friends with other guys, hang out and chat, and find some support for things in their lives that aren't going well. It can also be a good, discreet resource to find information about things like boys & mens shelters, which can be hard to locate at the best of times (and there are people who need them!).

    4. Yeah, white men like the president (Iranian)? Or the previous provost (a woman)? It the one before that (a Bangladeshi)?

    5. Iranians are white 2d. Sorry to break it to you. And he's still a man. And Johnston before him was as white as they get.

    6. 2e, the President is still a visible minority. Plus we have two associate provosts (specifically, the two most powerful of three associate provosts) who are women, and a Dean of Engineering (arguably the most influential position on this campus, alongside the Dean of Math) who is both a visible minority and a woman.

      I'm not saying that Executive Council is as diverse as it could/should be or anything (because it's not)... but the idea that everything on this campus is just run by white men is a little silly.

  3. Not sure about you guys, but the last thing I needed in my time here was more opportunities to meet other dudes. This is why everyone in fraternities confused me. I mean, I now know about the weird greek dating service side of it, but it still baffles me.

  4. Given that all universities are dominated by SJW, I dont think its remotely possible.
