British Nanny State Demands Sissification of Schoolboys

To comply with the depraved "gender equality duty" that came into force last April, British schools have been commanded to encourage boys to play netball and take drama and dance lessons to ensure they are more "gender balanced."

Mick Brookes, general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, has failed to get with the program:

It doesn't make any sense to promote things to boys that they don't want to do, simply so you can tick a box on a form.

But by rejecting freedom and dignity in favor of liberal statism, Britain has elevated boxes on forms to a status far more exalted than the personal preferences of any unenlightened young man who would rather kick a ball around than get in touch with the tender side of his psyche.

One world, one government, one sex, one way of thinking, one non-god to worship!!! It's a liberal fantasy that must never come to pass but certain parts of it will be put in to play and that's not too bad IF it wakes people up to yet another name for tyranny!

The patriarchy is`what built Western civ. Without it, we wouldn't have all we the comforts we enjoy. By letting men tend to men's duties that they were good at and women tending to women's duties that they were good at, and both working together for the good of their own, individual families, all the modern conveniences that you see around you were developed. Men and women are biologically different and that affects each of us in every task we do.Trying to short circuit nature by labeling masculine behavior as 'bad, aggressive and hurtful' and feminine as 'caring, good and nurturing' has caused no end of problems. For some reason it still comes as a surprise to these freaks that women are equally as capable of violence.

Inhibiting boys from pursuing boyish behavior whether through these gov't mandates or drugging them into submission with ritalin will only wreak havoc in the end.

Do the people who implement these policies realize that they're insane?

We're already seeing the havoc. There's much middle class handwringing about "feral teenagers"- a generation of lost boys who see that the world is against them and respond by attempting to assert the masculinity they're denied with violence, drug and alcohol abuse, undisciplined sexual activity, gang culture and so on. They've been destroyed by "liberalism".

The response? The government want to keep them in the indoctrination camp schools for another 2 years. This will make the problem worse. Madness.

Only one brave MP here, Frank Field, has dared to suggest that in fact we should be allowing boys to leave school earlier as they used to; many of these lads just want to get out and start climbing the rungs to adulthood. In a lowly job/apprenticeship they'd have a degree of financial independence, a sense of getting somewhere, a chance to start turning into grown ups in the guiding presence of older males. I may sound old-fashioned, so be it, but there really is a difference between your first trips to the pub being in The Company Of Men and necking lager in the local park out of sheer boredom. Instead we lock them in with misandrist harpies trying and failing to turn them into girlie-boys and using every tool they can to grind them down. Is it any wonder they react?

Will it be up to the classic "drunken British soccer fans" to save Mother England?

Do we have to tell them that the Muslims that will follow the Liberals will shut down all of their pubs? Is that what it will take? Will they defend their ales, porters, bitters, and their stouts?

Can you imagine what Shillary misandrist nonsense would have our young kids learn in 'Universal pre-k'on this side of the pond?

Do you in my son's class the biggest trouble makers have consistently been the boys without fathers in the home? 70% percent of male inmates didn't have a father in the home growing up. Looks like maybe over-feminisation is causing violence rather than letting them learn about their natural masculinity.

When I read "netball" I thought you meant volleyball, and I thought "What's wrong with that?" Then I clicked on the link. Yuck! I don't understand how women would enjoy something like that.
From my time in the Army, I can't think of anything sexier than a woman in black P.T. shorts and gray P.T. t-shirt, carrying an M-16 on her way to the chow hall at Camp Victory, Baghdad. Now there is some "gender equality duty" I support!

Mandy and Ian...great posts, right on target.

One thing I haven't seen addressed is that these programs are putting children into unrealistic sexual roles. We hear constantly about the effects of pushing unrealistic body forms on teenage girls, but will we hear the same about unrealistic mental forms?
