Over at my Swedish blog, one of my blog readers retold some pretty disturbing experiences she’s had as the mother of two. I decided to summarize her story for my English speaking readers (after blog reader Jim came all the way to my Swedish blog and asked for a translation!):
A blog reader (Ella) is the mother of a son and a daughter. The children are roughly in junior high/high school.
Sometimes the children have a special day in school to learn about gender equality. During those days the girls learn self-defense, and the boys have to attend groups where they “identify problems with the male gender role”.
When Ella’s son comes home after a day of gender equality, he and his friends look and feel pretty defeated. They’ve had to learn about the bad things men do to women, and what men did to women in the past.
Sometimes gender equality is the topic of regular classes too. In one such class they discussed prostitution, and Ella’s son came home and said that it’s really quite terrible that all these women are forced to Sweden to become prostitutes.
Ella replied that yes, human trafficking is indeed horrible. But far from all prostitutes have been trafficked. Initially her son didn’t believe her and thought she was misinformed.
In a class discussion on rape, Ella’s daughter made the mistake of saying that it is a shame that false accusations exist, since they detract attention from the actual rapes that happen. After class her male teacher pulled her aside and asked where she had gotten those fantasies from.
This is what happens when feminism takes over a whole country.
