Look I am certainly not a feminist, I don't believe that strippers are being taken advantage of, or that all men are pigs, but something one of my students told me is troubling. I asked him why he was late and he explained to me that he had to meet a friend for something important.
When asked what was so important? He explained that his friend had a crush on one of his classmates and was looking to meet her. He asked this kid if he could introduce the two.
So, naturally, I asked well are you going to introduce them? He said, "of course not". Puzzled I asked why and he explained that she had a boyfriend. I again asked so what? You are just introducing them. To make a long story short he explained to me that when a girl has to pick two boys it is very difficult and she is easily manipulated....BUT when a boy has to pick from two girls it is much easier. I asked him to explain and he said, dead serious, that women are weak minded. I started to laugh and said man if you only knew the truth.
He tried to explain to me that he is very traditional, but he just didn't get it. I was like so women don't have a choice? and he couldn't really give me a straight answer. It was just funny because these kind of conversations happen daily, almost.
