The great divide

Apparently when teaching children how to read and write, it is important to separate words into to categories along gender lines. As if boys have no need to understand ‘Bunnies’, ‘Cooking’ or ‘Love’ and girls will never come across ‘Lawnmowers’, ‘Caterpillars’ of ‘Money’ – TheKrakenAwakes has this fantastic post about about just how nauseating this type of segregation is, and points out just how stupid this level of sexism really is.

Go read it (unless you don’t like swearing, in which case I recommend that grow up and learn the value of a full vocabulary)
