Texas Middle School Puts Huge Message To Girls Above Lockers And Enrages Every Lib In Town

Published

on

Read any etiquette book and the ideology of acting like a lady and just how that is done is a consistent refrain found over and over again, even in this era of  fourth wave feminism. The idea of acting like a lady, then, in turn, empowers a man to be a gentleman is a consistent message throughout for both men AND women. As a female myself I often hear women wish that there were more gentleman, or that old-fashioned values were still in vogue. The complaint that “chivalry is dead” is so common now that it has been reduced to mere cliché.

By that same token, as a female that grew up around mostly men and boys, and then grew up to be the mother of three boys and a wife I have also learned to pay attention to what men say. Men are tired of being publicly shamed and scolded for simply opening a woman’s door, tired of being rundown for simply being what they are…men. There are entire genres of movies and books marketed to women that breathlessly detail the virtues of the alpha male, and women cannot get enough of them.

Yet in reality, from the schoolroom to the workplace, everything about what it means to be masculine is attacked. In an age where mere accusations of impropriety can destroy everything a man has worked for be they true or not, the war cry of third and fourth wave feminists determined to hunt down men to try and convict them for being guilty of nothing more than simply being…well…manly.

Many girls and women do not seem to grasp the fact that in order to be respected, one must act respectfully. If one wants a man to behave like a gentleman, then they, in turn, must act like a lady. It is a very simple and timeless concept. Yet it appears to be a foreign one to some in the Houston, Texas area as a local middle school has come under attack for attempting to teach just this message to young girls.

A now-removed quote proclaiming – “The more you act like a lady, the more he’ll act like a gentleman” promptly went viral after Twitter user @lbeckman posted the quote to social media proclaiming the message to be girl shaming. The words were placed on the wall at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School in the Houston Independent School District. The school has stated the quote has been removed overnight between Friday evening and Saturday morning.

Twitter user @lbeckman posted the quote to social media proclaiming the message to be girl shaming, stating – “This is the wall at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School in Houston ISD. It’s perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women, and relinquishing boys of all responsibility. It’s sexist, mysogonistic, and discriminatory! I’m horrified.”

The profile of @lbeckman reads, “Marketer. Athlete. MBA. Friend. Improviser. Accidental Activist. I don’t hate guns, I hate guns in the wrong hands. LA-Boulder-Philly-Houston.” And the tweet raised quite the ruckus going viral with a variety of reactions from utterly outraged to others simply wondering why teaching respect was such a controversial topic. One wonders why it is such an issue now though as according to HISD Trustee Diana Davila, the quote that was once painted on the wall above a locker bank has been there for five years.

According to local ABC affiliate KTRK

“‘I think we’re reinforcing stereotypes,” said HISD parent Tish Ochoa, whose friend took the picture. “I mean, look at the climate in which we’re living in. We’re supposed to be teaching people to be responsible for their own actions. What is this teaching little girls?”

Others shared the same sentiment on social media. Some tweets added the #MeToo hashtag.

“So the onus is on a woman to act ‘ladylike’ in order to be treated with respect by a man? This is disgusting,” wrote Twitter user “lisascraftylife.”

“Sounds like they are trying to blame women for how men behave,” tweeted “cfearnot.”

Others were not offended.

“Teaching respect is wrong now? I don’t get it. :(,” wrote “bencreamer.”

And, “squeezebox” tweeted, “I don’t see anything wrong with this message. Only people with a mental illness would be offended.'”

This is how you are greeting returning female students?

In response to the controversy, HISD issued a statement – “Please be advised that the quote on the wall of Gregory Lincoln PK-5 Education Center has been removed. Overnight, the wall decal letters were taken down, the wall was floated out, and a new slab of drywall was installed and painted.”

Also of note by some of those “outraged” over the message was the origins of the quote itself. Originally said by Sydney Biddle Barrows, she is also known as the Mayflower Madam. Barrows was an American businesswoman who started a successful escort service. In October of 1984, she was convicted of promoting prostitution and her escort service was shut down. Barrows wrote a 1986 autobiography, Mayflower Madam: The Secret Life of Sydney Biddle Barrows. There was also a made for TV movie based on the book which broadcast in 1987 starring actress Candice Bergen entitled Mayflower Madam.

The name “Mayflower Madam” was coined by a New York Post reporter, Peter Fearon, who broke the story of her ancestry. Barrows is descended directly from Mayflower passengers William Brewster, John Howland, and Thomas Rogers. Barrows subsequently wrote two books on sexual etiquette, one of which was her autobiography from whence the quote originated.

Regardless of the origins of the quote, it does not make the words any less true, or the message any less important.

PRICELESS! Parkland Activist And ‘March For Our Lives’ Co-Founder QUITS, Now Regrets Everything

Published

on

It was about time the anti-Second Amendment Parkland student activists started to wake up and grew out of the temper tantrum they have been throwing since that horrible, but totally avoidable day, Valentines Day 2018 shooting.

Chicks On The Right is now reporting that one of the victim/activists Cameron Kasky may be in fact be starting to wake up. As it turns out, the young co-founder of March for Our Lives movement and is now starting to admit that he, and others, did make mistakes in the process.

Kasky told Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson and Marie Harf that he left the organization and he regrets mistakes he made.

Here is some of what he said to Fox News Radio:

“On going after Senator Rubio at the town hall: I’m very regretful of a lot of the mistakes that I’ve made along the way. One of the things I never really did was watch myself. If I was on a screen I kind of tried to run away from it. I’m not entirely sure why. But, looking back on that it’s like you said, you touched off on this very well in the intro, I’m not going to kick myself for it because I’m 17. Despite the fact that I thought I did at the time, I don’t know everything. But, I look back on that and I say, you know what, there were people who had just been buried and when you’re looking at somebody that you find might in some way have been complicit in this murderer obtaining the weapon it’s hard not to say something like that. But, I went into that wanting less conversation and more to embarrass Rubio and that was my biggest flaw. (3:00)

On if he would redo his question to Rubio: Certainly, and I even name dropped the murder, which at the time I never really thought about, but looking back it ticks me off so much when people do that because then you’re getting that person’s name out there and making them a celebrity. I mean that’s one of the worst things you see come out of these horrific mass murders is name recognition. These people are very often crying out for some sort of attention and power and entitlement and then you’re making them a household name. I feel in some ways responsible for that. (5:13)

On his plans going forward: This summer when March For Our Lives went on the summer tour that we embarked on I met that person in Texas whose got that semi-automatic weapon because that’s how they like to protect their family. I met the 50 some odd percent of woman who are pro-life, even though I thought it was preposterous that a woman could be pro-life and not pro-choice at the time. I learned that a lot of our issues politically come from a lack of understanding of other perspectives and also the fact that so often young conservatives and young liberals will go into debate, like I said earlier, trying to beat the other one as oppose to come to an agreement…I’m working on some efforts to encourage bipartisanship or at least discussion that is productive and help a lot of people avoid the mistakes that I made. (6:33)

On his current relationship with March for Our Lives: I left the March. I’m off the board. I left the organization and if I thought that my friends and the people I worked with couldn’t do it without me I would not have done that, but alas all of our efforts looking forward looked like they didn’t really need my involvement and while I could have helped it wasn’t crucial. You know what I thought in some of the platforms that I have for only the worst reasons is something I really believe in, because I’m a Spider man fan, and I can tell you with great platform comes great responsibility. I thought it was my responsibility to take all the things I was kicking myself for and to encourage others to avoid it. (8:12)

On his new podcast “Cameron Knows Nothing”: My whole message is I was dropped up as an expert. The whole message was these kids are the real experts. Look, I have some very intelligent friends. Some friends who can intellectually run circles around me, but I’m not the expert in pretty much anything. (9:30)”

What most stands out about what this student said is that he admitted regretting how he attacked Senator Marco Rubio from Florida during the infamous staged CNN town hall where Sheriff Israel took the opportunity to deflect from the fact that his own department failed the students by instead blaming politicians, the NRA and our gun laws. He later went on to add that he is planning to talk to Senator Rubio next month.

Although people are questioning what happened to make him change his tune I don’t think it should be much of a mystery. He is a young student, just like all the rest, and he went through a traumatic experience.

An experience that should have never happened and would have never happened if only the sheriff department would have done their job and seen the shooter was a problem when they were called out to his house 39 times. One of those times he even called the police on himself because he thought he would snap and go on a shooting spree at the school.

Whatever happened to change Kasky’s mind, we need to welcome it and hope the rest start seeing the light through all the hate and propaganda they are spewing.

Here’s the time Kasky asked Senator Rubio if he would stop taking NRA money.

HUGE Message To Kavanaugh Accuser Flying High In The Sky Over Her House

Published

on

As of today, it is being reported that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. The details and arrangements are still vague but Judge Kavanaugh is eager to clear his name. I’m eager to see this whole circus end so we can get on with the confirmation process.

Pilot David Siever flew a plane on September 20th over the psychology professor’s house with a giant banner attached that read, “Thank you, Christine, We have your back.” That was a huge message of support for Ford. It would seem there are a lot of women who are supporting her in all of this even though, in my opinion, her credibility is comparable to swiss cheese.

UltraViolet, a women’s rights group paid for the flight and the banner. The plane flew over gathered protesters who were marching to Ford’s home as a show of support for her after she accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. There were approximately three dozen women in the protest group and a few men as well.

This same group had already written a “Dear Christine” letter that many of them signed this week in support of the Palo Alto professor. The group linked arms as they marched in front of her home and chanted, “Protect Christine! Protect Christine.” The rally was cobbled together at the last moment and protesters were mostly comprised of Palo Alto mothers and neighbors showing solidarity for Christine Blasey Ford.

Ford has also been celebrated and supported in the #MeToo movement. She is also allegedly the victim of harassment and death threats. However, her local supporters are all in for her. “We believe Christine,” they chanted. “Her story is our story!”

This particular rally was yet another effort to support Ford after she came forward in an article in the Washington Post to share her identity and her allegations against Kavanaugh.

But what these people don’t address is the fact that she can’t recall the year it happened, where it happened, when it happened, who hosted the party, who was there, who brought her or who took her home. Frankly, I’m not buying it.

Ford is claiming that sometime in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh was “stumbling drunk” when he and a friend forced her into a bedroom at a high school party, then groped her, tried to strip off her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams. One of his friends, Mark Judge, interrupted the assault, she alleges, giving her the chance to flee.

Kavanaugh is denying all of this and says it never happened. So is Mark Judge. Originally, Ford was insisting that before she would testify an FBI investigation had to be done. She changed that and then insisted that Kavanaugh testify first, not be in the room when she testifies, that no attorneys be present and that Mark Judge be subpoenaed to testify.

The Senate Judiciary Committee balked and said that they do not subpoena witnesses. They also pointed out that Kavanaugh should testify after Ford so he can answer charges against him and face his accuser. He also has a right to counsel in all this. Ford has still not said exactly what terms she agrees to for testifying next week.

A candlelight vigil on a Palo Alto street corner is planned for Sunday night. Letters of support are being stuffed into her mailboxes at home and at her office, and a GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay Ford’s legal bills.

Ford’s actual testimony next week is still very much in doubt:

“Fox News was told that Debra Katz, one of the lawyers representing Ford, requested that a hearing be set for Thursday — a request the Republicans on the committee had initially rejected, offering Wednesday instead.

“Grassley did not immediately respond to the letter, but a senior White House official told Fox News that it represented a request to continue negotiations about the terms on which she testifies without any firm commitment.

“It’s a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday,” the official said.

“Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who sits on the committee, tweeted that “we are no closer to hearing from Dr. Ford than we were when her lawyers said Dr. Ford was willing to testify during their media tour 6 days ago.'”

I am highly suspicious of this eleventh-hour victim coming forward with an unsubstantiated claim from 36 years ago against Kavanaugh. It seems she has a number of supporters but I would say there are far more out there that have a problem with her story. I guess we will know more when and if she testifies.
