    Catcalling. Wow, what a major problem for this country. It should be a top priority. Maybe we can tap a Catcalling Czar to end this crisis.

So let's take instead some general gender role assumptions: 1) women are nurturing and in so doing, protective 2) men are public figures, often in charge of guarding and creating the public sphere.

    Now let's take a look at teaching. In the beginning, pre-adult teaching was a man's world. It afforded him some prestige as a leader in the public sphere (albeit, not quite professionalized) and guiding pupils to become part of that public sphere. But as time went on the meaning of pre-adult teaching shifted. With the growth of colleges and universities, men were joining those circles more often. Far greater prestige was afforded to college and university teaching-a male dominated field. Public and professional prestige was a man's benefit, not a woman's. Where prestige went, so too did men, leaving women to pick up the slack where prestige was removed.

    That being said, either because of men's expectations for themselves or because of some inner-drive from women as mothers, advocates, and teachers, public school education (if one removes administration from the equation) is incredibly female-dominated. We perpetuate it, perhaps to some extent of a biological or neurological difference, but also largely because society accelerates whatever (if any) inner inclinations there are.
    Have you ever read any Sarah Hrdy? I suspect you would find some of her stuff fascinating. She is an evolutionary anthropologist and primatologist whose work looks alot at gender roles and in particular female roles and evolution. http://www.amazon.com/Mother-Nature-.../dp/0345408934

    Well, that's a problem, considering how schools are funded. That being said, you may start seeing some changes already. Academia is experiencing a decline. For many, it pays more to teach children than it does to teach adults and/or research.

    Now some of it is outright harassment, but is all of it?

    Please watch the rather short video.
    Some of it could be harassment. The most egregious of acts were the dudes following her around. But a lot of it is not harassment. Telling someone to have a good evening, for instance, is not harassment.

    Racism is defined as the treatment of one or more races as superior to others. How did my comment treat one or more races as superior to others?

    Be specific.

    No, the video was produced for an organization that advocates the end of catcalling. It's specific purpose was to raise awareness. Why are you so invested in denigrating this random woman that you can't just acknowledge this simple truth?

    Catcalling. Wow, what a major problem for this country. It should be a top priority. Maybe we can tap a Catcalling Czar to end this crisis.
    I don't consider this topic to be that important either. In fact, I find the fact that mainstream feminists focus on this topic so much to be evidence of how out of touch they are, but that's not what we're talking about now. We're talking about how you asked a dumb question with an extremely obvious answer.

    I am not playing your game.

    To say that nobody has it worse than the black man is absurd.

    The reason why the black man has such a hard time isn't because of anybody else but them. They are told by everybody that their problems are caused by white people. And they can't make it so just give up. It's black people that do this. I know you are going to call me a Nazi and a klansman and everything else because of my statement, but that is just because you know it's true.

    How many black men were raised by single mothers? How many black men admired some two bit thug that sings nursery rhymes to them about bitches and hoes? How many of them were raised to feel they were inferior, not by white people but by their black parent?

    It's easy to say you have it harder than anybody else ifyou can blame somebody for your predicament.

    Man up.
