remus: Somehow, I started school in the 70's and graduated High School in the 80's and, by some amazing luck, manged to do it without gender neutral bathrooms, no score taking soccer, "new math", etc.  We had peanut butter sandwiches, played dodge ball, didn't take anti-bully courses, and by some magic manged to make it through.

This new age silliness is nuts.  Boys go to the boys room, girls go to the girls room, boys try to drill a hole in the girls locker room, etc.  That's the way it was meant to be.  If you're confused about your gender, rub some dirt on it and get back into the game.  And stay off my lawn.

pedobearapproved: Metalithic: Yes, I'm sure today's youth suicide rate is entirely caused by an inability to lose soccer games gracefully. It couldn't have anything to do with increasingly vicious bullies gaining constant access to their victims via smartphones and internet, or the growing number of emotionally distant and fragmented families, or the pressure to prepare for university beginning in elementary school to avoid being labelled failures by parents who demand their little boy/or girl graduates top of their class and goes to Harvard so they can earn their love.

Sounds like we need to tell the kids how much harder they have it today then show some videos in school about cutting and how much attention you can get by doing it.

also sounds like you're projecting, lean back on this couch and tell me about your parents.


You really missed the point, didn't you? You also seem to assume I'm of the same generation as the youths you are talking about, which I find amusing. Erroneous assumptions aside, your logic appears to be that children and teens today are harming and killing themselves essentially because they are being given too much assistance or are emotionally weak. If that is really what you are suggesting, I recommend you do a little research into the issues surrounding youth suicide. If you glance at any medical, sociological or psychological journal you will realize that the problem is a little more complex than you imagine, and that suicide is statistically strongly correlated with familial neglect, abuse, peer bullying and other life stressors. Somehow your response makes me doubt you are interested in the scientific perspective, though I could be wrong.

remus: mjbok: dave2198: Yeah, those days were the best... when confused teenagers put on a fake face to get through school everyday, only to hang themselves in the bathroom before graduation.

As this whole new-age shiny happy participation trend has grown (from 2000 on) suicide rates among kids has steadily increased.

I really don't see how the way kids are growing up today prepares them for the real world.  One of the few things that I learned from a sports coach growing up was there are two things that sports help prepare you for in life:  Winning and losing.  To be successful at life you need to know how win with grace and lose with dignity, because over the course of your life you will do plenty of both.

//Even kids realize how much of a joke some of this stuff is.  Ask any 3rd grader that just finished a soccer game.  They might not know the exact score, but they will know if they won or lost.

Heck yah.  Back in the day, we just dealt with it.  No crying about it.  We didn't have a single suicide my entire school career.  We won or lost sports game and the winners shook hands with the losers and said 'good game'.   When the winners got a trophy, the other team was expected to stick around to watch and clap.  It hurt like hell, but you saw what you wanted and worked to get better.


Yes, I'm sure today's youth suicide rate is entirely caused by an inability to lose soccer games gracefully.

FTA:  Portland's largest public high school has reclassified six bathrooms as unisex

Ten students, six bathrooms. They obviously have way too much fiber in their diet.

PacificaFitz: blustacon: I can see pee on the seats from here.

my thoughts exactly.  I never thought that boys and girls have their own bathroom for privacy, I just assumed it was because the girls would refuse to use the same disgusting bathroom as us guys


Apparently, you have never been in a woman's bathroom.

We were in Barnes & Noble the other day, and I went to the bathroom.  It was horrifying.  I cleaned as best as I could to make it useable, and met back up with my boyfriend who was talking to the cashier about the DVD he was buying.  He said to me, "damn, you looked like you wanted to kill her, nice green eyes" and I said, "seriously, no.  I was still traumatized and trying to figure out how there was not only pee on the toilet seat and the floor, but on the WALLS of the bathroom.  There. Was. Pee. On. The. Walls.  Unless cashier chick did it, I had no thoughts of her whatsoever."  I still have no idea how that all happened, because as he said, "you chicks don't even have the equipment to do that."  Me: "YES I KNOW. THAT IS WHY I AM TRAUMATIZED."

While I am sure not all of us are (because I know I am not) most women are DISGUSTINGLY FILTHY in public bathrooms.
