What's Good For The Goose

I've long said that this brand of injustice will stop once it starts ensnaring women:
Coastal Carolina University has suspended its cheerleading program amid allegations that the cheerleaders were involved in a prostitution ring. There have been no prosecutions, and there don't appear to be any on the horizon, so controversy surrounds the school's actions…

Everyone is up in arms about the cheerleaders being suspended on the mere allegation of misconduct -- yet this action by the school is perfectly in line with how male students have been treated lately over mere allegations.

At the University of Minnesota, a number of football players are under suspension themselves over allegations they either took part in a sexual assault or failed to intervene. As with the cheerleaders at CCU, the Minnesota players have not been prosecuted for anything, yet a number are now facing expulsion pending any appeals of an earlier ruling by the school.
