feminizm discouraging and disabling guurlz

Take a gander at this: “Who Will Stop The Bullying?

First, let’s discuss the “problem”: young teenage guurlz behaving like, well, young teenage guurlz. Meaner ’n snakes, that species. I know: I was one, and I raised a couple through that age.

Girls spar like boys do, but they do it verbally while boys do it physically. [generally speaking, for the literalists] [yeah “no difference between the genders” what-freakin’-evah. have you met a human?] Boys continue to do it into [and through] adulthood, in many different ways. So do girls.

Next I gotta challenge their idea of “Self-esteem” — assuming they actually meant to discuss it instead of just tossing in another buzz-word while neglecting to even consider its meaning. They’re saying that it is dependent on the appraisal of *others*? Nope.

Self-esteem comes from The Self — not from Others. To earn your own esteem — not to say respect — you gotta do difficult things. Set a goal and achieve it. [rinse. repeat.] Take down an ‘enemy’ – be it a person, a task, a personal bad habit, an inability. That’s the way to gain your own respect. Letting Others talk sh#t about you — to your face — unchallenged: that ain’t the way. Saying [and meaning] things like “I’d rather read a cereal box than talk with you shallow fools” works much better.

So, their “solution”? Turn to strangers at a bus stop. Cuz they’re niiiicer? Then they top that: a little girl ought to turn to strange men because 1] she cannot possibly just walk away and wait for a bus alone [??!?] or 2] she cannot possibly find within herself the resources to mock back at the other girls.

Heavens Forbid that a guurl oughta be encouraged to reach down inside and come up with the fortitude to mock back at the other guurlz! A few quick quips and that situation would have been ended.

Think about a situation where a boy is challenged to fight and just rolls up in a whimpering little ball [as boys are being trained to do]: he’ll be taunted and smacked until the rest lose all interest. It doesn’t address the situation whatsoever: it merely marks the rolled-up boy as prey — both in the minds of others and in his own mind. If ya can’t handle it as a 3rd grader — or a 7th grader — howinhell are ya gonna handle it as an adult?

Along the same line, this girl is modeled as just siting there and taking it. Before running away to be with other people — inappropriate people — to salve her ‘wounds’.

How is that going to prepare her for a lifetime of other people challenging her — of Life challenging her — sometimes nicely, sometimes meanly? How will she develop the inner resources to judge her own behavior? Or will she be forever dependent on the kindness of strangers?

I notice that a lot of the “bulling” talk was the two girls quoting some un-named “Others” who said the mean things; as if that gave it more weight.

How about teaching a gurl to ask — or even think — “Why are you so interested in what *I’m* doing? What do you care if I read or wear make-up? I must be pretty important if that gets you all worked up!”

But no. The goal seems to be teaching children [future adults, yanno] to give up, give in, be passive, not even think of defending themselves, not even agree with their own preferences / ideas enough to defend them, not even think enough of their own persons enough to defend themselves. The key is it teaches them to give more weight to the opinions of Others than to their own. To give more credence to Social Pressure and .Gov Regulations than to their own researched and considered Values.

If everybody did that, who would make the decisions?

What kind of a country will that create? In a world where “old fashioned,” “19th Century,” survival of the fittest is still the way of things? [have ya looked at Africa lately?!? EUrope, even?] Nevermind the Second Amendment fights: this is disarming the populace from the inside.

C’mon in China / SplodeyDopes! We’re ready to be defeated without a shot fired.

Hell — c’mon in Norway.

    Norway prob’ly isn’t a good example.

    Yeah, y’re right though.
    One should teach children how to respond to an insult.

    (What? Nah, not a duel*.)

    Soooo..I got bullied for a bit in high school ( I didn’t quite fit into any click ) until finally ( hay, I was busy being solo flutist in band, 5 honor classes etc ) I unleashed my frustration on the bitch who couldn’t accept that HE took ME to the Van Halen concert:). They pulled me off of her and dragged me to the principal’s office— her to the nurse. My principal closed the door and patted me on the back with a great big ” YESSSSS!!!”. Hadda have a meeting with both of us and our moms. Rene’ could barely open her eyes they were so black, blue and swollen. No one could believe ( my mama especially ) how badly I messed her up. ANYways…no one EVAR messed with me again….
