Title IX in Science - STOOPID.

A bad idea in sports. AWFUL IN SCIENCE.

John Tierney reports in the NY Times that the grievance peddling community of women's groups and Congress have pressured the National Science Foundation, NASA and the Department of Energy to look for sexual discrimination in science departments that receive federal grants.

In sports, Title IX has shut down certain men's sports at universities if there was insufficient female interest in similar sports or overall.

Presumably some physics departments could face similar penalties if there aren't enough female physicists???

Galactically stupid.
