Among the factors a man should consider when determining whether a college is male friendly, according to the latest issue of Men's Health magazine, are whether the school has a strong women's department, complies with federal laws of equal funding for men's sports, and defines sexual harassment and date rape policies that require men to get verbal consent from sex partners. Virginia Pelley, of Chickclick.com, a hip Web portal for young women, reports on this reactionary phenomen and cites media watchdog group Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) on the truths and half-truths of the now-infamous article. The list of unfriendly schools includes Antioch College, Oberlin College, Columbia University, while the 'friendly' list includes the likes of California State University Long Beach, Davidson College, and the University of Georgia. Pelley points out that the article was 'not just nasty--but inaccurate,' calling claims that one in four women have been the victim of rape or attempted rape a 'feminist myth.' -- Amanda Luker
