I've been trying to find something to send off this week, and then I ran across an article: there's been a study of whether or not ADHD drugs actually translate to improved grades and classroom performance (it doesn't). But there was a figure that had me grinding my teeth--"277 boys and 93 girls were diagnosed with ADHD" out of a group of 5,700 children entered in the study.
Almost three times as many little boys diagnosed as not behaving like little girls in the classroom, sitting quietly and absorbing knowledge like well-behaved little sponges, who are then drugged into acting like a zombie. Just because they're different from little girls.
Radical feminism, and the idea the boys and girls are exactly the same can fuck right the fucking fuckety fuck off with a triple-sized cricket bat studded with rusty nails, broken glass, and razor wire jammed sideways somewhere dark, humid, and fragrant.
Boys are completely different from girls, and not just physically. Nor are the differences socially constructed. Boys run. They jump. They wiggle. They're loud. My son is exactly that way, but is not ADHD, despite his doctor suggesting he might be. When he's interested in something, he can sit down quietly and focus on it for almost an hour at a time (and yes, that does include "reading," but he's kinda unique in that). He's not quite five years old, so I find that incredibly impressive.
Another reason radical feminsim can fuck the fuck off is because of pushing the concept of a complete lack of responsibility for women. I know, right? A movement that's supposed to argue for equality is trying to infantilize women. That can definitely fuck off. It's the root of the abortion movement, the root of no-fault divorce, and the honest root of the rise of the rise of obesity.
So, yeah. Radical feminism can fuck off.
