    Once again a vastly under armed opponent trying to engage in a battle of wits with Gracie…

    Reminds me of one day when I was substitute teaching a 4th grade class. They had a debate assigned to research and present, and the topic was ‘should boys and girls be educated together?’ Boys of course started with with the old arguments of ‘Boys need more education because they’re going to be professionals and girls are going to be mothers and wives’, with the girls defending their right to an education.

    Then one girl stood to present and said “Actually, I agree that boys and girls should be educated separately. Girls are quieter and more studious than boys. We’re more mature, cause less trouble, and pay attention better. Boys are rowdy and rude, don’t pay attention, don’t study, and just don’t care about learning. Why should girls have to put up with all that disrupting our education?” I just about laughed out loud to see the boys suddenly put on the defensive, having to defend THEIR right to an education.

    (I’m aware that neither description describes all boys or all girls, or even a majority, but this was a 4th grade class. I didn’t really expect nuance from them.)

    Javier shows his inferiority with his raspberry. I remember telling a man once that it was true that women weren’t equal to men but what a shame it was that men weren’t equal to women.

    One thing’s for sure, they’re not the same, they can’t switch (not really), and viva la difference!

    While being “unequally” (differently) made, skilled, and gifted, people can be (should be) equally important and equally valued.

    Javier is not a great example of the progress they’re making.

    Javier, stop acting like a baby and maybe you’ll gain street cred. Lol

    When I went to school back in the 60s into the very early 70s the classes I would be in tended to be mostly boys as they were the advanced classes. There were two other girls who would show up in some of the classes.

    When in college I was going for a business degree in accounting and again most of those in my classes were guys. Never bothered me and never seemed to bother them as I did not act “girly” in the classes. Something which has always seemed strange to friends is that I have guy friends and he has girl friends (he was going for a counseling degree in the education dept) and there is no jealousy about same as we each know that the others are only friends and nothing romantic (or otherwise) – in fact one guy I was friends with went to high school with husband so he is a joint friend along with his wife – people can be friends with people of the opposite sex and just friends with them.
