Men Get Your Act Together, Say You Are Sorry for Being Male

Recently young men (boys really) were forced to “stand as a symbolic gesture of apology for the behaviours of their gender that have hurt or offended girls and women”

As a woman I am frankly pissed that these boys were used for this pointless exercise. These young men were asked to apologize for another boy or boys’ behavior. Why? How is this good for anyone?

The cynic in me wonders if this was all about the people organizing the assembly. That doing this made those people feel that they were good people. That they were using these boys for their own egotistical virtue signaling. If so their bad judgement should lead to them being banned from educating children or frankly being alone with any child.

Another woman, the principal at the school said that that part of the school assembly was “inappropriate”. Talk about an understatement from the principal of the school no less. While this took place across the world from me, and the young men in my life, I am frankly appalled and apprehensive about what comes next.

Perhaps…. we should have young men chemically castrated to stop being male or in response to any male raping any woman. After all it seems that the sins of some boys are blamed on all boys.
