The Boy works as a tutor and as a kindergarten assistant. The week before Thanksgiving he was reading some stories to his class. Usually he has time to check out the books before hand, but on this day he simply launched into a holiday-themed story. He was reading out loud when he came to this: "The women are in the kitchen and the men are watching football." Sigh.
He did some quick editing - I think he read it as, "Some people are in the kitchen, and others are watching football." Another teacher at the school, also male, read it as, "The men are in the kitchen and the women are watching football." The times, they are a changin', because a.) there are guys teaching in elementary school, and b.) they are sensitive to recognize blantant sexism when they see it. But why are books like this still coming out?
