Proposed Obama science policy absurd

Echo Boom Bomb points out that

"according to the Obama administration quotas limiting the number of male students in science may be imposed by the Education Department in 2013. The White House has promised that “new guidelines will also be issued to grant-receiving universities and colleges” spelling out “Title IX rules in the science, technology, engineering and math fields.” These guidelines will likely echo existing Title IX guidelines that restrict men’s percentage of intercollegiate athletes to their percentage in overall student bodies"

This is absurd. Particularly since various government officials continue to propagate the idea that there are shortages of STEM workers.
