Boys Banned From Playing With Legos So As to Reduce Their Skills in the Name of Equality

Legos introduce young boys to the joy of building things with their hands, and help them develop the skills this requires. Consequently a social engineer bans them:

A kindergarten teacher in Bainbridge Island, Washington, has banned boys from playing with Legos as part of the fight for gender equality.

The Bainbridge Island Review reports Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary School kindergarten teacher Karen Keller intentionally excludes boys from playing with Lego building blocks. Allegedly, this is in [an] attempt to help girls.

That is how liberals help people — by holding down other people. When they manage to impose utopia, it will be like the grass on a well-manicured golf course, each blade cut down to the height of the shortest.

As would be obvious in any civilization that has ever existed, boys are more drawn toward and more suited for building things. This is due to inherent biological differences, including differences in spatial skills.

In order to remedy this disparity, Keller originally tried to entice girls to play with Legos by offering them in girly colors, pink and purple. When the girls were not interested in playing with the toys — but the boys were — Keller decided to ban boys from playing with the Legos entirely.

She doesn’t tell the boys about the ban…

Keller told the Bainbridge Island Review, “I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’ — and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head.

Maybe the boys are smarter than she thinks. They won’t learn to build things in her class, but they might learn than the authorities are hostile and do not want them to develop their natural aptitudes.

Ironically, the Lego playing time is part of 40 minutes of “free choice” play. There is no information on Keller’s “free choice” page warning parents that boys will not be allowed to play with Legos.

Free choice. George Orwell would be proud.

No no no. Boys are supposed to play with Barbie dolls.

    Our public school system has been run by feminists for decades who have done incalculable damage to male students in their relentless quest to promote their gender to a position of dominance. Take a look at any performance metric of boys vs. girls over the past 30 or 40 years. Girls are thriving in today’s educational environment and now make up close to 60% of college degree earners. Meanwhile less and less boys are making it to college. This is not just a phenomenon occurring at the worst schools, but is happening throughout the US. That boys who are taught there is something pathological about their gender and told they need to step aside for oppressed women and minorities wind have having problems in early adulthood should not be surprising. But no matter how much effect this disparate treatment results in, it’s never enough.

    BB Island is a community of upper-income leftists. They live in a little snowflake world, commuting to Seattle on the ferry, sipping wine and eating brie, with little to no connection to how others live.

    Every now and then I’d be forced to go through there and hated it. The place drips of pomposity. This doesn’t surprise at all.

    Open letter to this teacher from a concerned parent:

    Hi,

    If you ever interfere with the development of other people’s kids again, Child-abuser you’ll get those lego bricks stuffed where the Sun doesn’t shine. If you want gender equality you’ll get it. Forget that you’re female, I’ll treat you like a man and I’ll punch your teeth out.

    So then mom & dad, is that mega nice house, four cars and a Harley, the RV with boat, and premium vacations prohibiting you from sending your kids to private school? Maybe even keeping mom from staying home to home educate them? Come a bit closer I have something to whisper in your ear…closer, closer…

    YOU ARE THE PROBLEM AND YOUR KIDS ARE LESS IMPORTANT TO YOU THAN YOUR ENTERTAINMENT CENTER. SHAME ON YOU!!!

    “No no no. Boys are supposed to play with Barbie Dolls.”

    And when they dont want to play with dolls…?

    The obvious answer: Ban girls from playing with dolls.

    Now, the class room will be full of toys, yet during “free choice” playtime, everyone will be banned from playing with any of them.

    Well, at least that classroom is progressively correct.

    Her strategy follows Progressive ideology to the letter, the one thing Progressives are good at doing.

    Cutting the blades of grass down to the lowest blade is how Progressives approach everything. Economics for example, the useful idiots here the Progressive drivel and believe that the Progs will elevate them up from the street to Bill Gates income. The reality however is they will lower Gates, Buffett, et al., and the rest of the wealthy in America to the street level. Education, law, sports, economics, anything and everything the Progressives touch, they destroy, just like Islam.

    That is what leftists promote in children with crap like this. Girls that want to pursue mechanical things should have plenty of freedom to do so. Forcing it on them and making them feel like failures if they have no natural inclination toward it isn’t helping anybody.

    Since it’s almost impossible to fire or remove a teacher from public schools, I say close the public schools. Defund the public schools so that there are no salaries, benefits for school teachers, administrators, etc…. Then open more schools and hire real teachers not associated with unions. Teachers were once a serious profession but now it nothing more than a cesspool of leeches.

Defund the public schools so that there are no salaries, benefits for school teachers, administrators, etc…. Basically throw out the entire school tax budget thereby giving the money that run public schools back to the parents. Then open more private schools where parents (who were paying taxes for public schools) can now afford and pay for an education with real teachers not associated with unions. Teachers were once a serious profession but now it nothing more than a cesspool of leeches.

    Sorry about that, good teachers and voters, but you have to harangue, harass, and if necessary, terrorize the Liberal Scum out of the system. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. No prisoners. No quarter.

    Under rule by Progressive ideology, evil is rewarded and productivity is punished. That is how you can identify the evil we are facing.

    Instead of suing the school board, I would see to it that everyone of them is recalled. Unfortunately, the Progtards that infest Portland would not have a problem with what was done to this child which is why our political system with it checks and balances no longer functions. The courts are also controlled by the Progressives so no relief or JUSTICE as it used to be called, can be had there either. That leaves only civil war which is what I have been saying for years here.

    I defy anyone to propose a workable solution to this bullshit other than that shooting war or slavery.
