a feminized setting is a setting in which helpless passivity is the norm.  
 
Fark you.
 
No. Seriously.

I like that "reading specialist" is in quotes. Probably because it's not a "real job."

Citation needed? Not that I doubt it, but anyone can underline things in yellow and say they're mistakes.
 
Also, whoever wrote that piece is painfully stupid, do people just not say "wow, you're a terrible person" when they say things in public?

Oh, and I wonder why conservatives have a hard time winning over the female demographic? I can't imagine why.

There's a mail fourth-grade teacher although I don't know if he was present that day. And the head custodian is male, although ditto.
 
2012-12-19 08:38:39 PM  
Also, that staff directory only lists teachers up to fourth grade, so it seems likely the school was only K-4.

Well, I decided to look, and in five seconds on google I found Sandy Hook Elementary's staff directory, and, what do you know?

1) Sandy Hook is a K-4 school, so no 11-12 year old boys.
2) There's a 4th grade teacher named Mr. Varga, and
3) The "head custodian" is someone named Kevin,

To be fair, since the position doesn't say "janitor" I'm going to assume the person who wrote the article didn't know "custodian" means the same thing.

Everyone knows that bullets bounce off of men.
 
2012-12-19 08:50:36 PM  
There's a shiatload of great reasons for there to be more male teachers, especially in elementary schools. ((csb) My dad was an elementary school teacher - the only one whose students never used construction paper for anything unless it was battleship gray.(/csb))
 
As far as the positives of male teachers go, massacre prevention comes in somewhere behind "can get the folding wall in the gym unstuck".
 
2012-12-19 08:55:41 PM  
So, the conservative position is that women are basically useless?

Good to know.

I wondered when the assholes would get around to blaming women, though I thought it would be the eternal conservative bugaboo "feminists" rather then all women. Once again, Cons, insulting over half the population is not the way to win national elections.

As to what would have happened if a couple of ex high school football playing men tried to tackle Lanza? They would have been killed. Testosterone is not an effective bullet shield.

They are not blaming women. This asserts the need for big,strong, heavily armed neanderthal males to be present in any situation for your own good and omfg think of the good of the children!

Hm. She may be onto something. After all, Columbine was entirely run by women, as well. And what if there had been men in the theater at Aurora? We may be on the verge of solving this violence problem, people. 
 
Also, this idiocy is getting shared all over the place, re-blogged, re-posted, etc. etc. ad nauseum. Which means that the vapid soulless biatch who wrote it has learned, as did the likes of Limbaugh, Coulter, Stern, Beck, and all the other "I'll say anything as long as it gets me coverage and money" assholes in the world did long ago, that as long as you're willing to spout the vilest stupidity you can imagine, you get attention. You get page views. You get paid. Which in the end means you get hired to write more vile stupidity. And so it goes, the circle of life.
 
The day this whore (and yes, she is a whore, not of the body but of the mind) writes something like this and gets...nothing...she dies. They all do.

The fact that a woman is spouting such misogynistic claptrap is mind-boggling.

Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza. 
 
...there would have been a bunch of dead jocks mixed in with the dead kids and teachers.

The only people who talk about feminism, for weal or for woe, are feminists. The overwhelming majority are women.

And without reading the article I'm guessing she's got a point, probably, about how women should be more assertive and take bold actions instead of just letting themselves be victimized.

I sadly know a few women who honestly believe men are better than women, and that they should be subject to their husbands.  What's funny is that none of them are particularly religious.

Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in Kindergartner Cop.
Arnold Schwarzenegger protected his students.

I've known a few of them and they will straight faced tell you that if women just learned to listen then things would run smoother,not saying assertive women are to blame for anything but..

for me, it's not so much that someone wrote that or even believes it. It's that they have a staff and a boss who read it, nodded their heads in agreement, and published it.

That's astonishing. I can barely wrap my head around the most devout Southern Baptists falling for that shiat (and only because these are the same fools that deny evolution, think the world is 6000 y.o., etc)

Without the religious factor massaging their brains, I can't fathom a woman falling for that crap. Must have had really shiatty parents.

I have a friend(female) who thinks that women are inferior than men and that no woman should ever be president or get into politics.
 
When I told her that a muslim woman had been the president of pakistan, I thought her head would explode.
