Check This: Are Women-Only Buses Discriminatory?

Twenty-two million people ride Mexico City's pubic transportation system each day, and among this enormous number lurk men ready to cop an anonymous feel on a crowded bus. Mexico City has decided to confront the sexual harassment problem by chartering women-only buses, marked with a pink placard and all!

Men get left in the dust of the "ladies' night on wheels" that travels the main routes of the city. According to the New York Times, some Mexican men feel that the policy is discriminatory and resent being left to wait for the next coed bus. Others accept their gender's punishment for inappropriate behavior.

Do you think there is such a thing as positive discrimination? Or is female preferential treatment an example of segregation?
