The notion that gender egalitarianism is central to the education process has caused dire consequences to Western Civilization. If proponents really sought political, social and economic equality between the genders, one might examine their claims with a sense of impartiality.
However, the record of a feminized construct clearly demonstrates that equivalence is not their intention. Dominance of the masculine mind with codependent emotionalism out of a soap opera script surfaces as the real objective in the eternal war between the sexes.
Imagine the inevitability of damage done to impressionable minds by an entire educational system intentionally designed to subjugate the natural instincts of a well-adjusted male student.
In The Feminization of American Schools, Don Closson offers up this analysis.
Feminists argue that we only have two models of masculinity to pick from. On the one hand, we have the self-centered, win-at- all-costs, barbaric, macho mentality portrayed by the stereotypical high school football coach. They contend that this model produces boys who beat, rape, and generally oppress women. It is also blamed for the bloodshed on high school campuses in Colorado, Arkansas, and elsewhere.
The other model, the one offered by feminists, calls for a "profound revolution," one that will change the way society constructs young males. It hopes to eliminate stereotypical boyish behavior such as roughhousing and aggressive competition. In fact, they hope the future will look more like the Philadelphia school which has "replaced the traditional recess with 'socialized recesses,' in which children are assigned structured activities and carefully monitored" so that gender stereotypes are extinguished.
No wonder that Gerry Garibaldi in The feminized American classroom - and how it hurts boys laments,
In today's politically correct textbooks, Nikki Giovanni and Toni Morrison stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Mark Twain, William Faulkner and Charles Dickens, even though both women are second-raters at best. But even in their superficial aspects, the textbooks advertise publishers' intent to pander to the prevailing PC attitudes. The books feature page after page of healthy, exuberant young girls in winning portraits. Boys (white boys in particular) will more often than not be shunted to the background in photos or be absent entirely or appear sitting in wheelchairs.
According to Custodial Mothers and Fathers and Their Child Support: 2007, released by the U.S. Census Bureau in November, 2009, there are approximately 13.7 million single parents in the United States today, and those parents are responsible for raising 21.8 million children (approximately 26% of children under 21 in the U.S. today). The primary responsibility of educating children rests with the parents. In a crippled society where over a quarter of children are raised by one parent, the maternal influence will dominant.
This Girlie Man culture fostered in government schools in not confined to America. Jill Parkin shares the same experience in Britain. She writes in 'Stop feminising our schools - our boys are suffering'.
What boys are made of is this: tremendous data banks that can recall years of FA Cup ties in minute detail; lashings of testosterone that needs constant burning off on a sports field; and a hideous competitive streak almost as vital to them as lifeblood itself.
Harnessed in the right way, these raw ingredients can help boys make the most of their education. But far too many of today's schools try to stifle these instincts in favour of a feminised curriculum that benefits girls in almost every single regard.
The problems start in the classroom. Instead of the make-or-break sprint to the exam deadline, boys have to endure stultifying coursework.
Why do sensible parents tolerate such foolish practices? What Price We Pay For Incompetent Education answers with this thought. If parents, especially mothers want a better life for their children, they need to grow up themselves. Emotional appeals not to cut staff and eliminate social engineering programs must stop. The present socialization scheme deserves to die, and very soon. Subterfuge that deceives parents goes further. Government schools have long had the primary function of socialization into the post modern age of compliance, but now these seminaries of docility, have become direct agents of the gendarme entente.
Dysfunctional Public Education Is No Accident condemns government schools as a primary cause of social decay and national destruction. America has educated herself into 'Social Relativism'. The results of decades of disdain for tradition and individual responsibility has produced repugnant consequences that has divided our Nation and will ultimately force either capitulation or separation from the deformers of deception. Public education is their leading device in poisoning young minds. You know this to be true, even if you are unwilling to admit it publicly.
There is an alternative to government social laboratory schools. Producing marginally functional idiots is obscene. Don Closson, continues and presents a traditional and positive male role model to replace the chaos of a fake gender neutral society run by maladjusted women.
I would like to endorse a third model of masculinity. This biblical model defines mature masculinity as "a sense of benevolent responsibility to lead, provide for and protect women in ways appropriate to a man's differing relationships" with the opposite sex. This biblical model assumes a number of things to be true about gender. First of all, God created men and women to complement each other. Both are equally valuable to God and His kingdom, but each have different God-given roles. Second, it looks to the servant leadership model depicted by Christ's role as head of the church, for which He suffered and died.
As long as taxpayer extortion to finance mausoleums of mind dumbing institutional indoctrination continues, the next generation will be even more stupid. The viable solution of using tax money to fund School Vouchers Long Overdue, deserves public support. The only incentive for internal reform of the government schools lies within the peril of losing their pupils to a competing educational system.
The height of absurd arrogance in an age of fiscal austerity is the recent school bond vote in a rural NYS district. After a defeat in the initial vote, the school board and superintendent orchestrated a questionable if not illegal campaign for a second ballot on a duel phase bond that will burden the taxpayer with over $42,000,000 of new debt. This staggering amount goes to bricks and mortar renovations for a school district that has 309 students in high school. The New York State budget includes substantial cuts for education, but that reality does not alter the government school drive to fleece the taxpayers. Read more on this sorry tale in Naples' taxpayers are being deceived about School Bond Proposal.
What kind of an escape from sanity explains this destructive behavior? Surely only an apologist or a high priestess of progressive educational mind control can defend such a brazen and foolish expenditure of public funds. The proof is in the pudding. Teaching the skills to achieve rational thinking is a foreign endeavor in government schools. Suppress any thoughts of learning the Greek language in order to make time for getting in touch with your feminine hormones, is in vogue. If teachers pamper pupils as dysfunctional buffoons, how can he or she ever aspire to become a scholar?
The "Girlie Man" culture teaches government dependency. Government schools are in the business of turning the next generation into social parasites. Where would the next crop of union teachers and careerist administrators come from if they are not trained to be a government welfare recipient in the public school system? Surely having to get a real job in the business world does not fit into the scheme of entitled government employees.
Stopping this rip off should be self-evident. However, the lack of guts to abolish public education demonstrates the triumph of folly over prudence. Home schooling avoids the destructive and harmful socialization experience of cannot we all get along mingling. Forcing government to divert your tax dollars to educate your own children in a school of your own choosing would institute a renaissance in excellent academic instruction and accelerate the closing of failed Oprah's world public schools, which are really prisons of misinformation and camps of Sapphic feminist bonding.
By any reasonable standard of performance or efficiency, the money spent to maintain the system of educational child abuse in public schools is a national tragedy. Nature demands that each individual develop the skills to satisfy their physical needs, while growing their mental capacity, in order to stay alive. When the intentional design of a childs education strives to stamp out independent skills or aspiration to provide for them self, that educational hierarchy must die a non-ceremonial death.
The classics are virtually unknown to the metrosexual animal of the didactic dog mill. How can a society survive when values based upon situation ethics and social relativism becomes accepted conduct? An educational establishment that cares more about their pension and benefits than ending the mental torture and emotional anguish they dispense from their curriculum, fosters the social and spiritual demise of America. The "Girlie Man" culture is the path to a living hell. SOURCE: Batr.org
The primary target of the left and their ideological father is the first institution created by God for mankind - the family.
In emasculating boys, they take out strong father figures, and when the concept of father is destroyed, so is the family.
Every policy of the left has the effect and intent of destroying the family.
This ain’t the half of it. The commie fag industry lobby now has the Pentagon recruiting and training new sexual deviants for them. This country sure has gone to hell in a handbasket over the past few years.
The only solution to such social engineering schemes is to completely privatize all school systems. In those schools, they focus on real-world results, they don’t coddle unions/secularists/feminists/anti-Christians, and they feature an efficient punishment system. Even if public schools are only locally based, a single liberal has the possibility of infiltrating even the most conservative district and single-handedly implementing her demented ideas. Private schools know that liberalism and their social engineering schemes are bad for profits, so if only they exist, liberalism as a whole will cease to exist.
Nope, it certainly is no accident at all, it's all part of the Agenda: Grinding America Down.
The Modern “Public School” system is rigged by women for women.
Wrong. Education by government is the problem, along with conservatives’ addiction to their favorite middle-class welfare program - “free” daycare (aka “public schools”). We don’t need “school districts” to educate our children any more than we need “grocery districts” to buy food to feed them.
With sentences like that, it is evident that the writer is a product of the public schools.
This well-written article should be read over and over in the halls of Congress until the NEA is no longer, and a school voucher system is implemented.
I’ve seen it first hand in public schools - the female teachers, especially the ones who recently graduated from college, regularly shun boys while openly favoring the girls. The boys are frequently being put down in one way or another.
“Dysfunctional Public Education Is No Accident”
It’s also part of the communist manifesto, but they don’t teach that in school.
I think bringing the teacher’s unions to heel is more important than the manufactured “health care reform”.
Until we the people take back education from the left wing ideologues our children are in danger of indoctrination. We need a fair and balanced (or neutral) educational system. And I think it should be priority #1.
No information, and no education, can be “neutral”. There is no neutral. All education has assumptions based on worldview. That worldview may be humanistic and based on a materialist viewpoint, but that’s not “neutral” as the left tries to claim.
The “educational system” needs to be local, and parents need to be given the power of choice as to where to send their kids. They will be “indoctrinated”, but this indoctrination must be under the control of the parents, not the elitists in the State.
If this is true, why characterize women as all things negative, as the article does repeatedly ?
Also, if men don't like how the schools are being run, why don't more of them take over and LEAD in the classroom instead of whining from the sidelines?
I'm not saying our government run schools don't have problems, they do. Many. But this eternal b&m-ing about it being women's fault is getting real old (like over 20 years old).
Man up. Lead, follow, or get the heLL out of the way.
And parents must be much more involved (including fathers) in their kids’ education.
Then why don’t men lead the way and change things?
Why aren’t there more men teachers?
Sounds like some men just like to sit on the sidelines and be crybabies.
Ah, but the left (and Satan) knew how to thwart this as well. He knew that men would step up and oppose him,
so first he introduced “feminism”, or “the societal denigration of the male role”.
Any man “stepping up” is being a “male chauvinist pig” for taking any sort of lead role.
Sounds like whining to me.
teach young girls, and start early, that Hooters is a FAMILY restaurant, that females can be shown almost totally unrobed on tv, in the movies, in magazines, etc and its totally OKAY...
girls are being taught to act like boys....aggressive behaviour, totally coarse language,wanton sexual hookups just like the boys and never look back....
the fact that people like Paris Hilton, and Anna Nicole Simpson are/were major pop icons speaks volumes of this society's value for females...
Feminism was devised because the family was too good at resisting marxism. Feminism is evil. However, it is ingrained deeply in American culture. Routing it would probably be the best thing to save America and Western Civilization, but it is probably too late.
The government schools are the indoctrination centers. Don’t send your kids to them.
Lots of them are getting out of the way and just letting civilization collapse. When they have liberated women who will give them what for their short term pleasure, why should they bother to get a better job or stop playing video games?
How easily women are manipulated. "Give men all the sex they want. That's liberation. GRRRRL Power. Then marry the state when you're used up and can't get back on the alpha carousel."
It is hard not to look at women like that with contempt. It is also hard to find someone who doesn't fit that profile these days.
Oh I see, it’s all women’s fault men can’t lead because they are too busy thinking about all the easy sex.
Man up. Stop whining
I’m sick of this crybaby act.
Wow. My point went right over your head. You didn’t paraphrase it correctly, either.
It wasn’t a “crybaby act”. It was pointing out the state of the culture. You just want to call names, it seems. You probably have a large chip on your shoulder.
Why don’t you call me a racist? Since you don’t want to see the point or engage in anything but mocking, it would be about as useful.
I am sick of it too. Seems to me that guys have forgotten they have free will and they do make their own choices. No female puts a gun to their head and makes them be whiners. It would be nice if men would MAN UP.
The article was calling names and you were too.
Blaming women for men’s failings is whining and a crybaby attitude ... you’re falling into that mode, just like the article.
I’ve read articles exactly like this for over 20 years.
It’s all whining and crybabying and blaming others for stuff you (collective you) won’t do yourself.
If men don’t like the way schools are run, run them yourself.
If men don’t like the way kids are taught, teach them yourself.
I’m no fan of public schools ... but this whining about women being the sole cause of the decline in education ... the decline of the whole culture ... is just pass-the-buck whining. We’re in this together. Any failings are the fault of everyone who let it happen.
Lead, follow, or get out of the way (notice there is no whining in that nostrum).
In any society, women ultimately have only as much power as men allow them to have. Many decades of Marxist-sponsored efforts to convince American men to grant such power, and the shameful acquiescence of the American male to the seductions of those efforts, have brought us to where we are today. There will be no turning back without a great conflagration, and its attendant weeding out of the brainwashed, but that conflagration may also simply result in our conquest by the non-feminized Islamic or Mexican cultures.
Flame away in impotent rage if you must.
At least you acknowledged male responsibility, which is more than the author of the piece and some of the posters are willing to do.
Also, and completely by the way, I’m sure it’s totally irrelevant, who invented Marxism?
Well now, let’s see. I believe it was a MAN called Karl Marx. I also believe if we check history he had a lot of MALE supporters ... not that this is an important point, just a frivolous, feminine, hysterical, snarky aside.
One has only to look at school playgrounds to see evidence of the wussification of our kids. When I was a kid we had a slide on our playground that was at least 15’ high. Now teeter totters, merry-go-rounds, monkey bars and even slides safe enough for toddlers have been banned least the little snow flakes scratch a knee.
You can thank trial lawyers and legislatures that allow such lawsuits by the gazillion for that.
“the writer is a product of the public schools.”
I was thinking the same thing. “Aspire to become a scholar?” That’s the problem; too many aspiring scholars, not enough productive members of society.
We dress our little angels and send them off to the government school where, by and large, poorly educated idiots lead them through their day,
These ‘teachers’ have been reoriented by the universities they attended with much more dangerous information than how to effectively direct a classroom curriculum.
Most of the children graduating from High Schools have severe learning disabilities, are incapable of stringing an intelligent sentence together either verbally or written, and have attention spans of three or four minutes.
In short, our children are being dumbed down into a level of stupor.
