I recently had the opportunity of witnessing two small boys interact with each other and, a little later, a small group of three girls doing the same. To say that this was eye-opening would be quite an understatement. Of course, it is well known that, for instance, the educational system has been changed to cater to the personality of women whereas typical behavior of boys has been reframed so that it nowadays justifies medication. While I do not want to make any excuses for this rotten system, the aforementioned encounter certainly made it clearer to me how we could end up in such a bad spot.
First, let me tell you about the boys, both between six and eight years old. I did not bother to inquire about their exact age. It was enough for me to infer their approximate age. These boys, and their parents, were guests in a family home. As the adults were enjoying some afternoon tea, the boys got more and more antsy, eventually getting up and treating the living room of a house they had not been to before as their playground. It did not take long until they were running around screaming, throwing pillows through the air, or dropping some books on the floor just for the sake of it. Their behavior was quite horrible. They were a real nuisance and only due to the mistaken desire of the adults in the house to be polite those boys were not scolded.
A few months later I managed to see three girls interact, ranging in age from 3 to 10, of which two were sisters. The contrast to the aforementioned boys could not have been starker. They just sat down at a table, first to paint together and later on also to play. If you did not know that there were three little girls playing together in this house you probably would not have guessed it. This went on for two to three hours.
If you put yourself in the position of a teacher, facing the prospect of dealing with a bunch of rowdy boys, then any submissive girl who just sits there, does not disturb anybody, and simply follows along provides some reprieve from the realities of teaching children. I thought to myself that if I am not sure I could stomach a bunch of ill-behaved boys for five days a week, and it is easy to see why teachers give preferential treatment to girls.
The bigger issue is, of course, that school does not cater to the needs of boys. They need an outlet for their excess energy and if schools scrap PE lessons and their parents do not play with them either, such rowdy behavior is seemingly the expected result. Obviously, it is much more convenient to put them on ADHD medication, so this is what happens. It is a quite sickening state of affairs. In the end, neither sex benefits much. Many boys get robbed of their chances to do well in life. In contrast, a lot of girls get pushed by the system to achieve economic success, ending up in careers they are not particularly suited to. I still think that this is by design. Boys get demoralized so that they remain controllable whereas girls go through higher education, which is basically a societal contraceptive program.
The average teacher surely has little understanding of the societal implications of how we treat little boys and little girls. However, the feminized educational system is set up in such a way that it will seem natural to provide advantages to girls. You could just as well imagine a system in which we cater to the strengths of boys, which would make girls look completely out of place and helpless. All it would take is focusing strongly on direct competition and lots and lots of physical exercise, as well as an all-male teaching staff.
