"When 1,100 Michigan elementary students were asked to describe what life would be like if they were the opposite sex, over 40 percent of the girls saw advantages to being male; they would have better jobs, higher incomes, and more respect. Ninety-five percent of the boys saw no advantage to being female, and a substantial number thought suicide would be preferable."

Santigold-I’m a Lady
Now won’t you run and tell your boyfriend
Tell him don’t hold his breath for me
I got some money I was saving
Got some hearts that I’ll be breaking
I know some day they’ll make a martyr out of me
She’s so fine
My song for the day
I feel like complete crap today. So nauseous I can barely move. What is going on? It is making it really fun to work. Not sure I’m gonna make it all day…boo.
Just ignore my whining.
"We can tell our children that school is important until we’re blue in the face, they’re not stupid. They see the loudest applause is for the kids on the field. They know teachers are paid poorly and don’t drive fancy cars. They know people plan Super Bowl parties but mock the National Spelling Bee. In other words, they see the hypocrisy, and we can’t expect society to correct itself. If we want to have any lasting influence on the way our kids approach education — the way future generations approach education — then we have to grab our pom-poms and paint our faces and celebrate intellectual curiosity with the same vigor we do their athletic achievements."

I teach some classes at the local university and I have watched as the shrinking budget resulted in cutting the nursing and the German department…yet I haven’t heard anyone even suggest cutting athletics. Explain to me how football is more important than learning a foreign language or training nurses???
