A glaring real-life example of what educators have been, and are continuing
to do, to boys inthe name of promoting girls:

I just listened to a speaker, an education professional, gloating about the
'succes' of this policy for their computer lab at the high-school level :
teachers noticed that girls were reticent to ask boys to give up their
computer when the computer lab was full. Contrarily, boys seemed to
naturally (a) fill up the computer lab first and (b) be more willing to ask
someone 'are you gonna be much longer?' The teachers, in conformity with
the pro-girl indoctrination they've received, set this rule: girls have
total authority to take a computer from a boy whenever they wish, boys,
when ordered by a girl, must relenquish their computer immediately and
without discussion. The teachers were very pleased to see that quickly the
girls actually took delight in exercising their power over the boys.

Not a word about what this taught young impressionable boys about their
'place' in society, or what it taught the girls about their sense of
entitlement, or how this was just one more element of the systemic
discrimination that boys face today. Just pleasure at how girls took
delight in exercising total power over boys.

Worry for your sons.
