The nurturist argument that we can turn boys into girls has never worked, does not work, and is a harmful idea for both boys and girls.
Wilton (Mass.) High School is being sued over gender bias against boys, and the principal said, "We teach everyone the same." Which is the problem. We are not all the same.
And the factory-model of education is obsolete. As the UK Department of Education notes, "personalisation" is now key.
* Boys behave differently in the womb than girls. The nurturists would have us believe mothers are screwing up their infant sons before they even know the sex of their child.
* At birth, boys' eyes focus on such things as moving objects, while infant girls focus on eyes, dolls, faces. Before they are exposed to male culture, boys behave as boys.
* Yes, other primate males and females behave the same way as humans. Will this turn some feminist evolutionists into intelligent-design supporters?
Thanks to all the mothers consider school lawsuits on behalf of their sons.
Solution: let boys turn in homework late and let's get them into/out of college and paying for your social security instead of working at McDonald's for $5/hour.

Picture is of feminist Betty Friedan, who died this month at age 85. Ms. Friedan later broke with other feminists during the time when feminists moved from gender equity to turning boys into girls. We think maybe she'd support the boys. What do you think?
