One of them has to be right, but using theproof the two authors sight you could not tell which one. The two columnistseach write biased columns that do not prove their points well. In Pollitt’s argument she says that the media ignores the real issue. Which is a male harassing a female. She says that the media ignores the othercases of more serious offenses dealing with the same subject.
She sights twoother cases that she would have us believe are more commonplace than incrediblystupid elementary school kids. Her first example is the case dealing with thesixth grader who received death threats does not even clearly state what kind ofhate was involved. It could have been sexual harassment, or it could have beenbecause she carried Spam around on her forehead. She only names two cases as herexamples.
So in her magical “evil people bash feminism land” her argument isjust as common as what she is complaining about, or maybe less common. No one istrying to bash feminism. This was not planned out to happen. (I hope)Also, kids in elementary school always are not thinking about gettingtheir secretaries to have sex with them for raises.
Personally, I think kids arestupid. Even I was a stupid kid. When I was in third grade a guy, Tommy, bit myear. Because he bit my ear I have not become accustomed to Sado Masochist gaysex dealing around ear biting. Tommy has not been going around biting people’sears and getting turned on by this.
He now cleans pools for a living. I doubteither of us cared at the time. Although I remember some crying. People who peein their pants in grade school usually do not pee in their pants when they aregrown up to be heads of the country.
We would know about it if they did. Manychildren form weird attractions to doing many things when they are small. I usedto think Bon Jovi was the coolest band ever. Now I laugh at my obviousimmaturity, because I do not believe that anymore. Kids have no idea what thehell they are doing they’re “dumb” and “cute. ” (And getting more sexual activitythan me and those bastards can’t even multiply)Even Pollitt justifies my argument of the kid does not know what thehell he is doing.
“De’ Andre’s whole family was famous, until they stoppedreturning reporters’ calls after he punched and bit a teacher. ” The kid probablywill not grow up, and go around biting and punching teachers. Pollitt also tries to argue the point when she asks “And how can weraise children to respect another’s limits at 13– and– 30 if we think it’scute when we do not. ” She compares what the kids did to “sexual aggression andviolence. ” This is a little bit strong comparison for a bunch of kids whoprobably have wet their bed’s recently.
They do not exactly have secretaries tobribe with raises yet, or wives to beat. When I think of violence the firstthing that comes to my mind is tearing one button from a skirt. (Really) I donot think these kids are anyway dealing with anything but their own ignorance. Charge them with stupidity or immaturity. Come on, these kids are not even oldenough to laugh in health class everytime someone says the word “penis.
“Another completely bogus thing that Pollitt suggest is if John Leo, whowrote the column on if he would have though it was so cute if the boys hadkissed other boys. Would the principal have thought that it was sexualharassment and suspended them in the first place? I doubt it. It would appear also that because of Pollitt’s past history she doeshold some anger towards people who mess with others when they are children. Shedoes not appear to be too much a centrist when
