Working to instill masculinity in men

Oh Boy!
Pre-teen boys who go to the "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" today at the University of California-San Francisco’s Center for Gender Equity will get to undergo gender sensitivity indoctrination while their female counterparts take part in all manner of hands-on activities, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The 9- and 10-year-old daughters will get to, for example, work with microscopes, slice up brains, play surgeon or dentist and visiti the intensive care unit nursery. The boys, on the other hand, will "learn about violence prevention and how to be allies to the girls and women in their lives" using media, role playing and group games,
The center’s director, Amy Levine, says the program isn'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."
Jesus H F-ing Christ. I wish I had known about this earlier. I would have flown to San Francisco and parked myself at the entrance of this "university" with placards in hand. Feminazi biatchs.
