Are Boys Just "Unruly Girls?"

Are Boys Just “Unruly Girls?”

Deborah Lambert, December 18, 2009

Is the so-called discrimination against girls and women in school just another scam that should be lumped into the same category as “global warming” and “health care reform?”

According to Phyllis Schlafly, the answer is a definite “yes.”

Schlafly pointed to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights plan to investigate whether colleges are “discriminating against women by admitting less qualified men” as the latest attempt by the feminist lobby to “sell the false propaganda that girls are cheated all through the education system, K through 12.”

What ever happened to the “60-40 ratio of males to females in school?” Thanks to the barrage of feminist propaganda, Schlafly reminds us that the ratio has swung the other way—now hovering close to 40-60.

The major reason for such a dramatic shift in student population is that men are no longer pursuing a college degree with the same intensity as women.

The problem begins in elementary school, which is not only “ruled by females,” but “dominated by feminists, who make school unpleasant for boys from the get-go.”...

“Boys soon learn that masculine traits like competitiveness and aggressiveness are punished while female traits like cooperation are rewarded. They can’t even blow off steam by playing dodge ball or tag. No wonder boys don’t like school.”

Last night FR was discussing College is now a waste of money. Maybe the boys are just reading the writing on the wall and pursuing other avenues.

The workplace has been destroyed by women. It’s no longer about “performance”, but rather, “personality”. Attitude is more important than productivity. It’s all about “what someone said” instead of “what someone did”. Drama drama drama.. Continual exposure of boys and men to the estrogen-dominated schools and workplace ultimately leads to beer summits where they kiss and make up... And guys, don’t forget the importance of using EMOTICONS in your Emails at work. Oooops.. and no ALL CAPS.. You might make a female coworker cry.

BINGO. As I said.. Personality trumps performance.

Workplace:

Aggressive female is “assertive”
Aggressive male is “hostile”

College can sure be a waste of time and money. I needed those crappy required courses like English 101 like I needed a hole in the head.

One year of college, one summer of paid intern, 2nd year of college and summer of "paid intern" might be a good goal.

Might also consider college all year long...The idea that it is set up the same as lower schools is ridiculous.

I guess Im lucky. My Dept VP gave a presentation to my group saying that all bonuses/raises would be strictly given based on who deserved them. There is no “everyone gets a 2-4% bonus.”

If I do well, I may get a real nice one. If I do nothing, I get nothing.

Actually, summer courses tend to be priced on a per-credit basis and you can actually get a good bargain taking courses in the summer. I was in a five year program and I graduated in four by taking summer courses three of the years to get all the liberal arts stuff out of the way. Also cleared the decks so I didn't have to worry about writing literature term papers while I was figuring out electromagnetic theory.

Yeah, they say that at my workplace too. But if you aren't a minority or have a vagina you can pretty much forget all that. Especially when it comes to promotions.

Duh.

As I recall, if anything, it was the girls who got the benefit. At least early on, elementary school especially, when we were more impressiobale. Girls, most of them, were always perfect angels. The boys were constantly, and rightly so, admonished for their deviltry.

“The idea that it is set up the same as lower schools is ridiculous.”

They probably don’t give it much thought, so it is a little ridiculous. But two things stand in favor of summers off. First of all, it’s what people are used to, and it’s always easier to go with the flow, so to speak.

More importantly, unlike in the lower levels there actually is still a reason for it. Namely, it gives the people who need it time to work full time and build up money for tuition.

Of course, I worked full time all through college and took as many summer classes as I could (since they’re easier, for me at least). But I didn’t go to a particularly difficult school.

Thats unfortunate.

Altough, our VP actually said “socialist style bonuses are always bad ideas.” Inspired by that. And I actually work for a Canadian company.

What I'm suggesting are summer intern programs...rather than spring and fall.

My boys went to Clarkson and Syracuse..They did work all summer...but they didn't get credit for it...and it wasn't "career" oriented. Only two semesters were intern work.

Just suggesting closer relationship with companies...and since summer is when most folks go on vacation...might be the perfect time for an intern program.

Yes, but are they paid? Because a lot of them aren’t. A lot are nothing more than “Get me some coffee, slave.”

Its even a rotten deal for the young women. Too many women, not enough men deprecates the female gender, making it extremely difficult to find a husband.

The girls are treated like throwaways. Lots of ‘em are grossly overweight. (Obese 21 year old women!)

Nothing ever works out for the lefties.

I’m in military contracts and we’ve done a complete 180—to the extreme—in the last 3 years.

We have EVERY type of company supported networking group, except for one. We have GLBT network group, hispanic, asian and more...care to guess which group is left out?
