Chinese School Turns Wimps Into Men

Education 10

Worried that it is turning out a generation of sissies, a Chinese elementary school has started a program designed to teach boys to be more masculine. Wang Jianhua, who has been teaching at the school for 14 years, says the boys are getting "more and more girly. During class breaks their favorite game is elastic band skipping, which is a typical girl's game. And the boys are very fragile. If we just scold them a bit they will cry out loudly."

I hope you never visit China because you will die from laughter. There are 92.88 million people with that last-name. []

The kids in the second row of that picture look like they have some more work to do in order to 'man up'.


Maybe they should take down their firewall? (1)

That makes sense - you can't have an entire country full of fems. Given the massive deficit of women, *somebody's* got to be pitching in all the gay relationships.
