Is Eric Posner Sexist?

So Eric Posner has an op-ed explaining why universities and colleges should ignore students' rights (hat tip).  The tag/thesis/subtitle/whatever of his article is, “Students today are more like children than adults and need protection.”  However, roughly 56% of college students are female, which means that Posner is acting like just another privileged white male in asserting that a female-dominated institution is in need of patronizing male guidance and protection.  Someone should tell the feminists about this.
