Are Harvard Men Sidelined by Sharia?

Michael Graham at the Boston Herald has his panties in a bunch over Harvard's decision to create a women-only hour in the school's gym, so that Muslim women can exercise comfortably and in keeping with the rules of modesty imposed by Sharia. He calls discrimination against those poor Harvard boys who have been sidelined by the school's decision. Woe is them!

Now, here's the thing. I'll admit my ambivalence (to put it mildly) about religious edicts (of ANY faith) that require women's "modesty" while usually allowing men to traipse all over town. But, aside from the fact that we live in a pluralistic society that should accommodate many faiths, using this as an excuse to decry, oh, everything Harvard has ever done to encourage dialogue with Muslim students and world leaders is just bull.

I'm told by a Boston-native that the Herald is beantown's version of the NY Post. Graham certainly proved it today.
