Ok, the sheer amount of STUPID that is currently running rampant through my daughter's middle school is mind boggling.
The school has instituted a "no contact rule" which means, students are not allowed to touch each other. Ever. No hand holding. No hugging, not even between friends. Kissing is an offense that will get you suspended. Because, and this is a quote, "holding hands will lead to other, more intimate situations."
Today a substitute science teacher told my daughter's class that "statistically there are more obese women than men, because women have no self control."
Because women. have. no. self. control. *boggles more*
My daughter, who is a brave and outspoken soul, challenged this assertion in class and tried to engage her teacher in a debate on the point. The teacher asked her if she ever goes to 7-11 and buys a Slurpee, to illustrate his point that women have no self control. Because, um, my child is female and er, Slurpee = no self control therefore all women are rampant Slurpee fiends? Truly, I cannot follow the logic.
There have been other instances of rampant fuckmuppetry lately. These are just the ones from today.
My daughter came home from school and immediately started spouting Rilo Kiley lyrics at me.
and the talking leads to touching
and the touching leads to sex.
which made me laugh.
But mostly, I'm just pissed off. Because that is a truly misogynistic, awful, hateful thing to say to a room full of teenage girls and a horribly sexist message to send to a room full of teenage boys.
I have to organize some kind of a scathing letter to the district now, to, you know, hopefully get him fired. Because dumping a Slurpee down his pants, my first impulse, would violate the no contact rule.
Your tax dollars at work, kids.
