Either I'm right or you're wrong.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
I guess in this context 'traditional' roles means Victorian. They ain't traditional. You just have to go back a little further to discover that the nuclear family, strict male/female role delineation et al are actually far from traditional; they're rather modern ideas barely 150 years old.

NO. I don't even think parents should teach traditional gender roles, much less schools. Those roles are obsolete and only deserve mention in history classes. Birth control and modern appliances and technology made them obsolete and they were never as universal as some people fantasize.
Every individual should be free to decide for themselves the roles that they will play in their lives.

No. I don't think we need to be teaching kids about gender roles at all, whether traditional or otherwise. And I don't think it would do anything at all to reduce the divorce rate in the country.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
You don't get it, it is hateful to use mother and father because it discriminates against those who cannot be mothers or fathers because of their orientation.
Listen, I wish this wasn't going on... What you figured those pushing for political correctness would just stop at what was reasonable??
Noooo, you don't get it, this is about telling people what is and is not ok to say or talk about.
