Ladies’ night controversy

Relevant to yesterday’s discussion of female drinking on campus and trends of women drinking more and men drinking nothing–

From Gothamist: A judge has decided to throw out the suit of a man who alleges that ladies’ nights at bars inherently discriminate against men. What gets me is that the plaintiff accused the judge of being feminist–yeah, since feminists just love to see women get wasted and then preyed upon by the sober men lining the walls of the bar.

(This is the same guy who’s suing Columbia for offering women’s studies courses–because, y’know, the rich white guy feels sooo discriminated against.)
