If you believe people on the left, women need help and support in academia because the field gives preference to men. But if that’s true, why is Yale University currently under investigation for discriminating against men?

Yale being probed by DOE, accused of ‘toxic environment against men’
The Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) is investigating Yale University after a male student from another school filed a Title IX complaint in February, accusing the Ivy League institution of a “toxic environment against men.”
Kursat Chistoff Pekgoz, an English literature doctoral student at the University of Southern California who has no affiliation to Yale, filed the complaint after he singled out the Ivy League for its overall culture of anti-male discrimination by providing benefits exclusively for women, despite declining male enrollment. This is not the first time Yale has been accused of discriminating against men using Obama-era Title IX policies that have been pulled back under the Trump administration. But this complaint, unlike the others, is unrelated to sexual misconduct on campus.
OCR is investigating seven of the 17 organizations Pekgoz accused of exclusively benefiting women at Yale – the Women Faculty Forum, Working Women’s Network, the Yale University Women’s Organization, Yale Women’s Campaign School, Yale Women Innovators, Smart Women Securities, and Women Empowering Women Leadership Conference. OCR dismissed complaints against the other groups because they either do not exclude men or are private or non-profit organizations not affiliated with the university.
He said he chose to file the complaint against Yale because it “has a much more toxic environment against men.”
Will this be an isolated investigation, or will it lead to other schools? Stay tuned…
