Positive discrimination can work both ways

Dr. Helen says pretty much all of it in "What Goes Around, Comes Around" discussing an article in the NYT on the consequences of the academic over-success of women. It seems it's getting easier for men to get into college now than it is for women. I have to admit that although it does indeed seem like an ironic justice, I have never been a fan of "affirmative action" of any form, preferring to use the oxymoronic form "positive discrimination".
