Feminism In The Classroom

Feminism In The Classroom

What are the responsibilities of a school teacher? Should they tackle the complex and sensitive social issues that exist in modern society? Education plays a vital role in the mental and emotional development of children as they approach adulthood. Education in America has failed to provide a proper understanding of social issues to its millions of students. Most schools and teachers relegate the teaching of subjects like feminism and racial equality to parents. Unfortunately parents too often support the status quo, or even worse, completely ignore their duty of educating and informing their children. You may ask why any of this matters, Why should children be forced to learn about matters of opinion? Isn’t there a danger of schools choosing the opinions of impressionable youth?

The Flaw and Flare of Flamboyant Feminism

The Flaw and Flare of Flamboyant Feminism: An analyzation and critique of feminist goals, habits, and truths

    Take a look at [Simple] Wikipedia’s definition of “feminism”:

“Some feminists believe that all genders should always be treated in exactly the same way. They think that people should not think that a person’s gender is important.” (s.wiki)

When you hear the word, “feminism”, does it come to mind the same way the writing above presents it? Does it roll off the tongue quite the same way after reading that as before? If so, then you are a bonafide, genuine, grade-A “feminist”; which is not in any way a bad thing. In fact, feminism is quite progressive and a positive movement. It’s when men and women alike stave from the true feministic path and falsely represent their own suffering that it begins to generate trouble. Read the rest of this entry »

Friends, Family, and The Loss of Individuality

There is a unique gift that every human possesses:  this gift is individuality.  It is sad that as I grow older I notice more and more that my plethora of female friends has slowly been invaded.  The invader is their boyfriends and the media.  Their boyfriends are not necessarily doing anything wrong, but my female friends constantly feel the need to take it upon themselves to change their morals, beliefs, and ideas to fit those of their boyfriends.  I have even begun to notice this happening in my younger sister.  Feminism would help them retain their identity if they were to give it a chance though.

Miss Representation Review

Miss Representation was a great way to show the downfalls that the media causes toward young women.  While watching, I could not help to think about how people in today’s society think that is how every women in the world should dress, and act.  The documentary also backs up the video with evidence from researchers, and the well-educated to prove to the watcher that it is a major problem in the world today.  The only problem I found with the documentary is there was a bias to it, as the people that were backing up the theories, and telling the stories were well educated women.  Today, it affects all women and it would have been better to include the different classes of women in backing up the data, and telling their own personal stories.

For the Love of a Daughter

No child should have to fight for their parents attention. No child should be raised with only their mothers support. No child should be forced to feel as if they raised their sibling. No child should feel as if they have been betrayed by their parent. No child should live without their father. No child should have a poor outlook on marriage. No child should feel if they were to have children that they could mess them up as the parent did them. No child should feel as if their world is falling apart. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Distract the Boys

Girl’s dress code in school has been a problem for years now and it only seems to be escalating.  Girls are being sent home from school and getting detentions for wearing clothes that the schools are argueing are too “scandalist”.  In reality these girls are just wearing regular clothing, they are not showing up to school wearing bikinis or lingerie.  These girls are getting in trouble for showing their shoulders or too much of their thigh or collarbone.  The schools say it is too much of a “distraction” if a female student wears “revealing clothing”.  How is a shoulder distracting?  It is not fair that a girl gets in trouble because a boy cannot go without getting “distracted” by what she is wearing.  Boys should be able to sit in class and concentrate without being “distracted” by a girl’s shoulder or leg.  It is not fair that the girl is being punished when the boy is at fault;  a man should be able to function properly no matter how a woman is depicted.  A girl should be able to wear shorts and a tank top to school if it is hot and should not have to worry whether she is going be punished or not.  Boys need to stop looking at girls as objects and start looking at them as equal human beings.  This exhausting battle for women needs to come to an end, and women need to stop being depicted as a distraction. It is time that they can stop having to cover up so they do not distract the boys.  Women need to be seen as being equal to men. Read the rest of this entry »
