New Program Helps Pre-Teen Boys Better Understand Their Vaginas

Not really, of course, but you begin to get the feeling that, um, "They" won't be happy until all boys have been thoroughly Mobyfied.

Don't you know that it's different for boys?:

Pre-teen boys who went to the "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" at the University of California-San Francisco's Center for Gender Equity...

Wait a minute-- San Francisco has a Center for Gender Equity? Why wasn't I informed immediately?

That's like finding out that many buildings in New York rest upon a foundation consisting of nothing but chittering rabid rats. It's just, you know, mind-blowing.

... last week got to undergo gender sensitivity indoctrination while their female counterparts took part in all manner of hands-on activities, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The 9- and 10-year-old daughters got to, for example, work with microscopes, slice up brains, play surgeon or dentist and visit the intensive care unit nursery. The boys, on the other hand, learned about "violence prevention and how to be allies to the girls and women in their lives" using media, role playing and group games.

For the love of everything holy.

It's this sort of ceaseless lecturing and hectoring that is going to make these guys snap and start slapping women around.

Just reading this story made me take out my Anger Management Puppet "Delores" and begin pummelling her with a ballpeen hammer.

The center's director, Amy Levine, said the program wasn't intended to give boys and girls the same learning opportunities. "It's about dealing with effects of sexism on both boys and girls and how it can damage them," she said. It's about mirroring "the same sexism that occurs in the classroom daily."

I will admit that putting up with a constant stream of idiotic nonsense from women is actually a skill that will serve these boys well later in life.

But seriously-- can't they wait to start having sex before being forced to learn these coping skills? Because, you know, without the tension-release associated with sex, it really is horribly difficult to take all that senseless yap-yap without grinding one's teeth down into little bloody nubbins.
