Boys and Schools Part Three: Shaming Boys while Boring Them to Death
Parts one and two have shown us the feminist anti-boy push in our schools. This video looks at how schools are difficult for boys and how they have gotten far worse due to the sexism of feminists. There is a large amount of research that has been done showing how boys are different and unique. Our educational system has kept their head in the sand and refused to acknowledge such differences much less to teach our boys about these important differences.
