Thin Women: Privileged or Objectified?
Why I Didn't Major in Women's Studies
The answer is here. Take a look at what last year's engineering, computer, and business majors made right out of college compared to what their liberal arts counterparts made. Who can afford to be a liberal arts major? Who can drop thousands of dollars to major in something that has a high rate of college grads waiting tables?
I certainly couldn't afford it. I didn't go to college for any kind of "personal fulfillment". I went because I was dirt poor and didn't want to continue to be dirt poor. Although college did turn out to be personally fulfilling, I couldn't shell out that kind of cash just for that reason.
I don't like to use the phrase "liberal elite". But sometimes I see why it was coined.
