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.
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.

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
