Should our schools include "Male Studies"?

Today on Q we heard from anthropology professor Lionel Tiger. He's part of a new group of academics called "The Foundation for Male Studies" that held its first symposium earlier this month. They say that, 40 years after the first Women's Studies program was established, the time has come for "Male Studies." The male of the species is in "decline" in our culture, he says, and the big questions about masculinity and maleness can't be discussed in today's schools because Women's Studies have had a "suffocating" effect on discourse. What do you think? Is "Male Studies" an idea whose time has come, or does it all seem like a regressive, anti-feminist idea to you?
