ESPNU's Cable Listing for College Ultimate Championships

Taking a page out of Bent's gender equity book, it does not go unnoticed that the cable listing for the 2017 USA Ultimate college ultimate championship games is qualified for the women's game, but not the men's game.

Below are how Monday's live broadcasts are listed in the cable guide on ESPNU:
USA College Championship

USA "Women's" College Championship 
Qualifying one championship game as "women's" without qualifying the other as "men's" indubitably assigns greater importance to the men's.

UPDATE: Bent club ultimate from New York started a letter writing campaign to ESPN on behalf of this issue:
UPDATE [5/29]: ESPNU cable listing was updated!
