I don't think I have ever been referred to as "clutter".
Baldimo's post addresses the issue of fairness.
I personally would not want to go to a single-sex college. College is supposed to broaden ones experience, not narrow it. I would also never send my children to a single-sex high school.
But if you want all female institutions, doesn't that also mean that we should have all male institutions? I don't see how you can justify one without the other.
So I guess women sould be admitted to join August National, agreed Baldimo?

Absolutely. I see nothing wrong with private organization being allowed to choose their membership.
As to Wells, if it is a financial decision then it's fine. If it's a political decision, then it's silly.
1. Ridiculous. Can you imagine the liability the school would face if they let him play?
2. While I personally find their actions deplorable, I also wouldn't force them via government action. I would, however, publicize their policy so that community members can decline to patronize the businesses of members, should they so choose.
"reverse sexism" is a kinda weird phrase. Sexism is sexism, period.
1. A high school student a few years back took his high school and his school board to court for discrimination because he wasn't permitted to play on the football team.
He had no legs.
2. The Calgary Golf and Country Club in Calgary, Alberta still doesn't permit visible minorities to their course *unofficially*. They only sell memberships to whites.

I have studied some of the effects of coeducation, and it definately has it's pluses and it's minuses.
From a pure skills and knowledge "learning" perspective, single-sex education is, in my opinion, far superior in the grade levels 1-9 or 1-12.
In terms of the attitudes one deveolps in a coeducatioal classroom, I find that far superior.
Their lawsuit accuses Wells of breach of contract through its admissions process. The lawsuit says students were deceived into believing they would be attending a woman's college for four years.
Peter D. Carmen, the students' lawyer, said while the college was actively recruiting females, the trustees had been developing the plan to admit male students.
The lawsuit _ filed in state Supreme Court, Cayuga County _ also alleges that campus tour guides were specifically instructed in their 2003-2004 training manual to say "no" when asked if the college was going coed.
"We're asking for very limited relief," Carmen said. "We just want the women who applied to, and were accepted by, a woman's college to be able to graduate from a women's college."
