If my daughter isn't given the same level of instruction as my son in science and math classes, should i just wave it off?

Given recent trends in college drop out rates, you should be more concerned your sons.

I can't see it there either. Mario Bros. doesn't seem anymore offensive than any run-of-the-mill Disney movie that my daughters watch

Good example, what could possibly be offensive about ::Open Credits...Orphaned Girl is sad and put into peril then rescued by rich man she falls instantly in love with...7 mediocre show tunes...ethic stereotype animal...Close Credits::

And they market them to girls no less. What's this world coming to?

Smiley: disappointed

Yes. Your daughter is probably smarter than your son and doesn't need as much instruction.


Or your daughter figures she can just ***** her way to a diploma.




I have no idea how old your daughter is by the way, so please don't hate me for the example.
Doesn't matter how old she is, it's an incredibly stupid example.

Are teachers also using this incredibly stupid reason to withhold instruction from female students. Why teach if them if you can just fuck them?

Ya know, on second thought, if this is at all indicative of the mind-set of gamers then their is a problem

My son is a statistic. He dropped out of college. My daughter finished.

One handed, while talking on the cell phone.

It was 4 different thoughts and/or replies to others.

Funny such things are noticed and noted.

Making sure that women are oppressed somewhere is my guess.

Sure, blame me when there was 2 posts before me breaking it up, with one specifically stating it was a combo breaker.

Blame the Canuck!
