    Amy Coney Barret

    I watched bits and pieces of the hearing in the senate. Already she has me disappointed.

    When Ted Cruz asked her how she would inspires young girls. Barret replied "I tell my daughters, 'Anything boys can do, girls can do better. But boys are good too."'

    Not only is this not physically true, but it fuels the feminist narrative that the best way to encourage girls is to marginalize boys. I think it's a vile thing for a mother to say with her sons right there in the audience. Sure you might point out that she said Boys are good too, but that's just table scraps. A serious double standard: if a man said this in reverse, with his daughters present, he'd be deemed a misogynist and chased out of town.

    Well, at least the feminist left can rejoice that one of their own is filling the seat of Ruth Bater Ginsberg

    Honestly dude, this should be more alarming:



    The fact that she is looking to hold a position interpreting the constitution and can't name the freedoms in the first amendment should set off bigger alarms. Honestly dude the response to that answer should be "Thank you for your time, next nominee."

    Granted I could only name 3 off the top of my head I'm not looking to be a Supreme Court justice.

        I can agree with this. I couldn’t name them all off either, but I would’ve been able to answer that question better than her. She just stammered and rambled. My answer would have been that the freedom of speech, assembly, press, & protest are all in the same line because there would be no question as to whether any of these actions are forms of protected speech. I must’ve missed this part of the hearing.

        I made this thread because there is a harmful gender war going on, and boys are being left behind. People like Barrett are part of the problem.

          My sarcastic response to "Anything boys can do girls can do better" is "Let's see you piss in an alleyway."

              I missed that part. My MRA days are long behind me but I gotta admit this would have annoyed me. I'm guessing she said it kinda being funny or whatever but I'm not sure kids would pick up on that. Especially the boys who might have been in earshot. Assuming she said it to her daughters at all and wasn't just being entirely silly but I dunno that feels like an excuse when talking about someone under oath.

              Chart you posted is interesting. I don't have time to look into it so I am hesitant to mentally file it under FACTS, but it is concerning and not entirely surprising.

                Assuming the stats are accurate, most of the latter half is definitely alarming and I want to say the first half is as well but I hear a lot of guys, I believe including the OP, who scoff at higher education and the education system in general. If that's the case, I'm not sure why these guys would feel boys are being slighted.

                I suppose we could infer from the AP/Honors and primary school stats that girls are favored and catered to but I'm inclined to think that there are other variables at play rather than rampant discrimination in education.

                  That's a reasonable and thoughtful analysis.

                Regarding education, a lot of it has to do with the different learning styles of boys and girls. Boys are better hands-on learners and tend to do better in courses that offer physical projects to work on. Girls tend to do better in humanities courses where book work, reading, and listening is more involved. Most schools are structured around sitting in a classroom, talking and reading (the feminine learning style). Studies show that young boys need recess time, whereas for young girls it isn’t as necessary but they benefit from it.

                  So if girls tend to do better at reading and listening, it should come as no surprise that they excel at a couple of those categories like English/Language Arts and Foreign/Classical Languages. I am surprised by the Math one, but I dunno, I tend to be skeptical of taking isolated statistics to make contentious (which I believe "Gender War" qualifies), let alone generalized claims. I'm the same way about so-called Systemic Racism, people present isolated stats about ethnic disparity in incarceration rates or various metrics as proof of systemic racism but I think it belies more complex and nuanced issues.

                  Being the anomaly this year is, it's probably difficult to really analyze the education thing, probably very few kids are getting proper education. But I assume you shed light on the issue as more of a general trend.

                    there's definitely a cultural difference between the acceptability of being academically successful for boys and girls. i remember when i was in school it was pretty much expected among the girls that they would get good grades. whereas i used to intentionally put the wrong answers on tests because i was sick of hearing my friends yell at me for studying (not that i ever studied, but just answering test questions correctly is enough to get a boy angrily accused of it).

                    for the most part this seems to stop by the later part of high school, but by then it's too late.

                      I won't argue that.

                      It seems like most Americans don't know the difference between Socialism and Communism. Jim Jeffries did a great bit on that since Cambodia under Pol Pot was communist and Australia is Socialist.

                    I don't think she ment in that statement that women are better at physical work on a construction site. You're probably taking her too literally there

                          Love how easily 6-eyed is set straight here. But yeah, he's always projecting an extreme minority's actions or mindset on the whole moderate group it can be associated with...
                          Technically he's a feminist himself (as an egalitarian), it doesn't matter how one identify or label themsleves. I don't label myself as a feminist either, or primarily identify as such. But i am one nevertheless

                          Youfreeme I don’t like the mgtow guys at all, but at least they don’t pretend to promote equality while being a hate movement. Unlike feminists, who believe the only way to empower women is to marginalize men.

                          When you support only one side in the gender war, both sides lose.

                          Let's not confuse feminists with feminist leaders. When the far left leaders say they speak for me, that doesn't mean they speak for me.
