No, I'm not talking about any of you. Today, I had a red letter day in my career, as I had to actually send a kid to the office for calling a female student a bitch.
Now, I've never been one to called members of the female species out of their name...well, with the exception of one particularly nasty ex-girlfriend in college that took out my heart stomped on it, put it back in, and hit repeat.
As I was saying, this kid called this chick a bitch, and I had to send him to the office, but this got me to thinking. Pending the connotation, had he have been a gay guy, calling this girl a bitch wouldn't have been that big a deal.
Think about it. When gay guys call girls bitches, its like a couple guys trash talking. So, what's the deal with the double standard? I'm dumbfounded by this, and ashamed that I had to adhere to it, but she was in tears about this (you know how emotional middle schoolers are), and I have to follow the rules.
So, do any of you have any thoughts on the matter?
