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.”
