Double Standard at Northeastern Illinois University

Northeastern Illinois University, citing its policy of nondiscrimination, has ordered the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance to stop its planned Pay Equity Bake Sale, where they demonstrate the plight of American working women's pay imbalance by charging men more for baked goods. It is discrimination to charge men more than women for these baked goods.

Oh, who am I kidding? They ordered the College Republicans to stop their planned Affirmative Action Bake Sale, which works on the same basis as the Pay Equity Bake Sale. Yet, the Pay Equity Bake Sale has already happened, and the administration didn't object.

Once again, we have another blatant example of a double standard.

(Thanks to Eric Berlin for picking up on this story.)

You would think this sort of thing would embarass them.
