“I didn’t expect it would be all women and it was a small classroom and about 40 women were sort of sitting in a semicircle and the thought of spending two hours every week sitting there for the next four months was overwhelming.”

Male expects special accommodation because he doesn’t want to be around women, and then sues for discrimination. Amazing.

homeboy never heard of dropping??

So…he was stuck into the same situation that many women in STEM fields are stuck in but it’s different because it scared his little man feelings?

An actual shy person wouldn’t go to court over this. All that exposure and scrutiny? No thanks.

No, because see, he’s love shy which is a chronic inability to deal with women because they might not want to date you.

He went to a women’s studies class expecting men


HE WENT TO A WOMEN’S STUDIES CLASS EXPECTING MEN

I have -1920% sympathy for this douche.

lol attendance and participation were only 15% of the grade. it would have been possible to pass without ever attending if his work wasn’t shit.

He wasn’t stuck in the same situation as women in STEM fields (as said above) because this was only ONE single class.  Women in STEM fields experience being outnumbered and ostracized for their entire academic career.  NOT ONE PUNY LITTLE SEMESTER LONG CLASS.

I hope the judge laughs him out of the courtroom.

“I believe if you want to attract more males to these courses, you have to work with them. My request for accommodation was reasonable.”

Get the fuck out. How much more accommodation do men need??

from the article

The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal believed differently, however: “The applicant has not satisfied me that his claimed discomfort in a classroom of women requires accommodation under the [Ontario Human Rights] Code. He admitted that his discomfort is based on his own ‘individual preference’ as a shy person.”

Kim also provided no evidence of being “excluded, disadvantaged or treated unequally on the basis of his gender,” in part because his discomfort was based on “mere speculation as he never gave the class, or the women, a chance.”

so yeah he got laughed out.
