Michigan anti-affirmative action petitioners may get more than they are bargaining for if their Michigan Civil Rights Initiative passes. The Michigan Daily reports:

Michigan women may suffer many negative effects if the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative banning the use of affirmative action in Michigan public instituions is passed, according to a report to be released today by Sue Kaufman, associate director of the University’s Center for the Education of Women.

  1. The paragraph in the Daily article that reads,

    “The report specifically references a lawsuit filed in California by the Los Angeles chapter of the National Coalition of Free Men, in which the group sued battered women’s shelters for violating the state constitution by being gender-specific and hoped state funding to the program would be eliminated.”

    inspired me to find the website for the NCFM . It’s awfully entertaining reading, though that may only be because it’s 3am.
