You may be interested to read that Doris Lessing spoke about this phenomenon back in 2001. I cannot post a link here, but her address to the Ediburgh Book Festival that year was covered in the (liberal) UK newspaper The Guardian.

To be sure, women deserve to be supported, to thrive and to do well in a society that has historically treated them appallingly and continues to discriminate, but it's a cruel and unjust punishment to collectively neglect and reject a generation of young males via overcompensation. They have a right to thrive too. Nietzsche said that when one battles monsters, one should take care that one does not become a monster oneself.

Society need balance, inclusivity and harmony, not vengeance and compensatory discrimination.
