The education system is trashing boys in an eagerness to promote feminist ideology. Any male success is now seen only as gender advantage, not hard work or a human right to thrive. Boys are loving, caring, intelligent, funny and innocent, but society rarely gives them credit for this. Instead, they are told that they’re stupid, emotionally stunted, depraved and violent, thus sealing a boy’s social fate before he even leaves school.
This video describes one boy’s personal experiences of the British education system between 1997 and 2006. It was based upon the content of an internet post by the user “Duran” to the antimisandry.com forum. The transcript, which is abridged version of the original post, follows:
I was born in 1991, to a happy family, I had a sister 6 years older than me, and two loving parents, my father was the breadwinner of the family and my mother was a house wife, she used to take me and my sister to school, pick us up when we were sick, basically, all the mum’s stuff.
My early school years were great, my education was great, I had maximum grades at that point; I played for my school football team and used to do some boxing. My dad and his dad were both boxers. It was great bonding time for me and my dad in the gym. Life couldn’t have better. As I got toward the end of my primary school years, I did start to notice an odd trend, though. My family seemed to be the minority that were like this: When I’d stay over at friends houses, it would almost always be divorced mothers or just simply single mothers looking after my friends. I never paid it much attention, however, as I was just 6-11 years old at the time, but I always wondered, “where’s your dad?”about my friends.
Anyway, moving on to my transition into secondary school, this is where things changed, for the worse. Secondary school is 11-16 in England, not sure what it is in other countries.
Immediately it began. We were taught, at such a young age, all of the atrocities western men had committed against everyone else. We were literally, I’m not exaggerating here, taught to be ashamed of ourselves and of our gender culture. Girls were taught how great the suffragettes were and that without them they’d still be under the tyranny of evil men.
I remember a particular class about this in history. The female teachers and female students were all laughing at the stupidity of boys and men. I remember the female teacher pointing out “all the men had to fight wars, while women didn’t, but it was always men that started the wars,” while the girls all laughed. I remember looking around at all the boys in my class just sitting there, quietly, blank stares on their faces, saying nothing. Then it hit me like a silver bullet. I was doing the same as them: nothing.
However, after having years of political correctness and self-shame pumped into me by this so called education system, I had no knowledge of how to even discredit them. Everything they said seemed true. If it wasn’t for my father teaching me about the great men of our past at a young age, I actually think I’d be another sad fool indoctrinated into feminist ideology.
This experience though, was one problem that I and other boys my age experienced at this point. Another was that not only were we taught to be ashamed of our gender, they went so far as to blatantly make us ashamed of our race. Yes, if you were white and male, oh boy, you were in for a treat. Hours upon hours of all the horrendous crimes our ancestors did to the Africans, the Native Americans, the Jewish people and of course, women, because women were not in any way part of white wrongdoing.
Not one, not a SINGLE mention of all the good we did, only the bad. If they did happen to mention anything good a white man did they never pointed out it was a white man who did it. Only when they shame do they like to point the traits of the people/person they’re shaming out.
Meanwhile they had Black History Month celebrating the accomplishments of Black culture and Black people in general, which I have no problem with. I think it’s great that people can celebrate their culture, but then it bought up the question, when will I be allowed to celebrate and be proud of my culture? The answer? Never, that’s racist and not politically correct, you see. That line of thinking leads to a nation of Nazis, apparently.
Now, after all this, I noticed something change in me. I became apathetic, lazy, unmotivated and my grades went from the top 5% in my country at age 11, to pretty much rock bottom. I remember at age 11 I was predicted straight A* and as for my GCSEs, well, I didn’t leave that school with a single GCSE. Not one.
Why? I stopped caring about school, some days I just didn’t turn up, I couldn’t take it anymore. It was actually horrendous to be discriminated against like that by people who are supposed to be objectively teaching and nurturing me. By the time my dad noticed what was going on it was too late to do anything about it. It was in the last 6 months of school; the school never notified him of my drastic drop in grades and lack of attendance.
These feelings weren’t just felt by me either. I can tell you now that 90% of the boys in my year didn’t leave with more than 1-2 GCSEs either. A lot of the girls, the majority in fact, left that school with amazing grades. A girl I was fond of left with 3 A stars, if I remember correctly. Oh and my sister finished Primary school with high grades and carried on the trend finishing secondary school with very high grades. all A’s and B’s. She went on to do A levels and was on her way to becoming very successful, learning multiple languages such as German and Latin when she decided to give it all up to raise a family.
To any of the older generation out there, I’d just like to tell you, this is what it was like to grow up in an education system from 1997-2006. Now I can’t say it was like this in every school, as I had no experience in other schools but if generally speaking, every school was the same way mine was, we’re in big trouble. I read recently, young men get paid less than young women now from ages 20-29.
My big question is, what is going to happen when my generation has to step and live in their place in the world? From my experience and the facts around me at the time, the majority of boys in my year are either unemployed or doing basic jobs like stacking shelves, digging and other menial jobs.
We’ve literally created a generation of young men who are self-hating and apathetic without any father figures in their lives, and even the ones who had father figures like me got shafted hard by the education system we had to endure.
Honestly, I’m actually really interested in seeing what happens in the next 20 years. Will feminists ever realize that their self-gratification condemns this generation of men who have been destroyed and ostracized with little chance of their life’s potential being developed?
I was one of the few people who wasn’t surprised when the UK riots came about. It was just waiting to happen. This is the generation of young men who are supposed to be the backbone to our future?
I am very interested in what the older generation of men think about this state of affairs and how their sons have been treated by the education system and society in general.
Oh and before anyone accuses me of blaming my failings on the education system, my father paid for me to go to an all male school, where I got 7 As in GCSEs on my first year there directly after mandatory school ended, then two years of A levels in which I got all 5 of them. This isn’t some blame, pity me game. I’m just generally very interested in what you all think is going to happen if my scenario holds true for the majority of young men growing up?
