Prof. Impelluso has elsewhere, in more mainstream forums, commented that he refuses to care about the lack of women in engineering so long as boys are lagging in reading skills. This recalls Attila Vinczer's idiotic assertion that the focus on breast cancer just demonstrates how nobody cares about prostate cancer. Everything is a zero-sum game with these fools. And everything, in the end, is the fault of feminism.
And frankly, speaking as someone who teaches "college readiness" classes in reading and writing, I am offended by the implication that the young men in my class get short shrift compared to the women. If anything, I spend more time with and more attention to helping male students in and out of class.
Now, of course I wasn't shocked that a professor might personally, in the darkest recesses of his guarded heart, hold those views (although I still have a hard time reconciling such ignorance, arrogance, and just plain "crankiness" with being, well, educated). What flabbergasts me is that he posted them under his real name. Never mind the retro mindset and hostility to women in math, which, by the way, is completely counter to the efforts most academic institutions (including my own) are making to encourage women to enter STEM fields. Never mind the curious obsession with penises and with the obligation of women to make those penises happy. It's the simple and utter lack of common sense that blows me away.
I can only think of Jay Leno's 1995 interview with Hugh Grant: "What the hell were you thinking?"
