Too few men for smart women
The article denigrates men who have not got a degree.
Among people in the 30-34 age bracket with a university degree or similar qualification, there are 155 women for every 100 men. That would be less of a problem if the women were more willing to "marry down". The overall ratio is 91 men to 100 women in the population aged 25-49. But women are perhaps less inclined than men to marry someone not as well educated, which may add to the shortage of partners for intelligent women....The solution is not, as one dating agency suggests, for women to lower their expectations. They should, of course, keep an open mind when they meet someone but it would be idle to pretend that these things are of no account. The solution, as the researchers suggest, is to raise the numbers of men in higher education.The expressions "marry down" and "lower their expectations" are offensive to men - should they bother to take it. Which is probably at the crux of the matter.
Men don't take to playing indignant victim as readily as women. Oh bugger. Was I just sexist?
The failure of men to foot it with them [women] educationally in equal numbers is no reason to change the education system or promote men undeservedly. The shortage of partners for highly educated women is a problem only men can solve. Get your credentials, boys.
Consider yourself told. There will be no quotas, no Ministry of Men's Affairs, and certainly no sympathy for your failure. Own it. Just like minority groups and women have always been expected to.
