In The recent months bills have come out to stop gun violence especially in schools .
Also in the recent months spanking children was hot a debate and considered by The majority of people as abuse .
And never mind that teachers are not allowed to punish a student because ANY form of punishment is considered ABUSE .
Now we have had more school shootings in The U.S than I care to count !
I do not have any children , But remembering how worried my mother always was when I was in school , I can imagine to an extent what these parents went through when they either heard that their kid was injured or even KILLED during any of The shootings that occurred recently !
Now I realize that we have more BULLYING and MORE VIOLENCE due to lack of empathy and critical thinking skills !
A friend of mine on social media posted an article about a girl who hurt a boy with scissors in school because he lifted her dress and he was taken to The nurse . He was not seriously injured so he did not have to go to The hospital .
I do not remember if this girl was asked to leave The school for a few days as punishment for her actions or not , But I was HORRIFIED by The women responding to this article !
One woman , A mother seriously was defending The girl for defending herself with scissors !
she seriously said she would not defend her son if this happened to him
and another woman was also cheering this girl for her actions and I was dumbfound !
I was wondering if they had issues with men or in this case boys and asked what if a girl did The same to me because I did have a girl lift my dress in Middle school and one of The women responded that The gender was not The issue but The ASSAULT itself !
Again I was confused and asked a woman what she would do if I stepped on her foot on purpose and she seriously said she would definitely defend herself !
And one of them seriously said and I paraphrase " He was not so bad that he needed surgery !"
And another one said that she would defend herself because of her PTSD .
I have to say , At this point I was so speechless that I messaged my friend and told her that although I respect her , But I had to unfriend her to keep my sanity !
Reading The responses of these women was so shocking I just have no words !
If I had a kid who lifts a dress of another student or anything else that is unacceptable , I would punish my kid with NO TV , NO HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS , LESS MONTHLY ALLOWANCES or NO MONTHLY ALLOWANCE AT ALL or something else !
If you are being raped or in serious danger of your life , THEN you use scissors to defend yourself or even a gun !
In The 90's and earlier , If a boy was grabbing The bra of a girl in school for instance , said girl would drag that boy into her bathroom and push his head and face into a toilet bowl to teach him a lesson . Or a student would be locked in The gym to stop said student from bullying others !
Considering scissors to defend yourself because somebody lifts up your dress or stepping on your foot on purpose is something that a MADMAN does !
Civilized people do not use sharp equipment or utensils to defend themselves because somebody was being mean and pushed them ! This defense strategy is INSANE !
And teenagers should be learning to defend themselves in a civilized manner .
May I suggest offering a karate course in ALL schools to learn self defense ?!
I am serous !
This society is turning into a world of MADNESS if self defense means carrying scissors with you in case somebody kicks or brakes your nose ( Which has been happening for centuries in The youth culture ) .
Just food for thought
