The college kids thousands of dollars or pounds in debt with a gender studies degree are the equivalent of the younger sons of Norman lords who were never going to inherit land and had nothing to do but forment rebellion and war

@cathyby It’s not just rich kids who take these degrees. Loads of not very wealthy people are now up to 60k in debt with almost worthless degrees

@edwest Disagree. They get jobs in HR, or in NGO's.

@edwest Analogy is a bit odd - the kids of the rich with gender studies degrees don't have debt. Those with sensible vocational degrees who are furloughed right now have debt and no income.
