I'm not making this up folks. She actually has a 5 point list why you should major in women's studies.
But what I am going to do is a genuine favor for all the women (and men) out there who are thinking about majoring in women's studies and debunk the above list with just one reason.
"The One and ONLY Reason You Should NEVER Major in Women's Studies."
#1 - You can achieve everything a doctorate in women's studies can achieve without having to waste 8 years of your youth and $150,000 in tuition. You can read the books on the internet or library for free. You can read the literature for free. You can protest, lobby, and do whatever you want to advance women's issues for free. And (here's the kicker) you will have the exact same employment prospects as people who have a doctorate in the field.
What we're witnessing here is the cannibalism that occurs in leftist academia. Liberals and leftists major in some faux humanities degree. They can't find a job with a "Bachelor's in Vicitimization" so they proceed to get a "Masters in Whining." That doesn't result in employment so they go full on for a "Doctorate in Asking the Government for More Money While Claiming We're Independent."
But the irony of such worthless degrees is the only thing you can do with them is simply reteach them to future students. Deep down inside you KNOW the degree is worthless, but you have so much in student loans and practically all of your youth invested in this fake industry that your ego cannot take the blow that you
fucked up your life and wasted your youth.
And so they cannabalize on (in this case) future young women, cajoling them to join them in their misery at the women's studies department AND in the process ruin and destroy these poor girls' lives (despite, ironically being a presumed women's studies program).
Ladies, look, I don't care if you're a leftist, a liberal, or a feminist. You can be all those things for free. You don't need to be "ordained" or "certified." Just "be" those things. But for the love of the Patron Saint's Name of Frick, if you're going to drop 6 years of youth and $100,000 on a masters degree could you at least make it count?
