What ever happened to letting “boys be boys?” Take these two cases: In one, a seven-year-old boy was sent home for nibbling a Pop Tart into a gun. In another, a teacher was so alarmed by a picture drawn by a student (of a sword fight), that the boy’s parents were summoned in for a conference. In short, boys in America’s schools are routinely punished for being active, competitive, and restless. In other words, boys can no longer be boys. Christina Hoff Sommers, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explains how we can change this.
Note: The effeminizing/demasculating of males (and the masculating/defeminizing of women) is a massive problem in Western Society. Simply put, what we need to do is esteem and promote positive (traditional) masculinity and femininity rather than give ear, or platform, to that which detracts, and distracts, from it. The greatest of Western, and Eastern, civilization has come about in accordance with, and not in opposition to, these traditional, biological, and common sense realities.
