What’s behind the feminization of boys? Initially, feminism was all about raising the status of women to a level playing field with men in salaries, opportunities, etc. But, the redefinition of traditional (globally traditional) male-female roles was taken over by liberal feminists who moved on to promoting the LGBT movement.
Liberal feminism was aggressive then, but a quite different quality of aggression to the
spiteful malevolence we see now. – Ex-feminist Helen Pluckrose
Ex-feminist Helen Pluckrose describes how postmodernism has affected American society in an article written for Aero Magazine, 29 Dec. 2016.
“Very simplistically, [postmodernism] was an academic shift pioneered by Jean-Francois Lyotard and Jean Baudrillard which denied that reliable knowledge could ever be attained and claimed that meaning and reality themselves had broken down. It rejected large, overarching explanations (meta-narratives) which included religion but also science, and replaced them with subjective, relative accounts (mini-narratives) of the experiences of an individual or sub-cultural group. These ideas gained great currency in the humanities and social sciences and so became both an artistic movement and a social “theory.” They rejected the values of universal liberalism, the methods of science and the use of reason and critical thinking as the way to determine truth and form ethics.”

As is socialism, postmodernism remains forever a theory because it can never be proven to work.
A second reference was written in 2010 by Arthur L. Petterway, a Houston ISD principal.
“Gone are the days when school administrators merely functioned as principals or head teachers who are revered and feared at the same time by their subordinates. Today, the work of administrators has moved away from leadership and towards management and has continually posed problems so challenging and daunting enough to erode the very core administrative values that they were trained to embrace in the first place.”
Public schools have become the laboratories of postmodernists where social engineering replaces academia, scholarship, and critical thinking.
What’s the cure? Get your children out of public schools and into private Christian schools or, better still, homeschools where boys are allowed to be boys and girls allowed to be girls, all while on an equal footing for leadership opportunities.
