Legos introduce young boys to the joy of building things with their hands, and help them develop the skills this requires. Consequently a social engineer bans them:
A kindergarten teacher in Bainbridge Island, Washington, has banned boys from playing with Legos as part of the fight for gender equality.
The Bainbridge Island Review reports Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary School kindergarten teacher Karen Keller intentionally excludes boys from playing with Lego building blocks. Allegedly, this is in [an] attempt to help girls.
That is how liberals help people — by holding down other people. When they manage to impose utopia, it will be like the grass on a well-manicured golf course, each blade cut down to the height of the shortest.
As would be obvious in any civilization that has ever existed, boys are more drawn toward and more suited for building things. This is due to inherent biological differences, including differences in spatial skills.
In order to remedy this disparity, Keller originally tried to entice girls to play with Legos by offering them in girly colors, pink and purple. When the girls were not interested in playing with the toys — but the boys were — Keller decided to ban boys from playing with the Legos entirely.
She doesn’t tell the boys about the ban…
Keller told the Bainbridge Island Review, “I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’ — and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head.
Maybe the boys are smarter than she thinks. They won’t learn to build things in her class, but they might learn than the authorities are hostile and do not want them to develop their natural aptitudes.
Ironically, the Lego playing time is part of 40 minutes of “free choice” play. There is no information on Keller’s “free choice” page warning parents that boys will not be allowed to play with Legos.
Free choice. George Orwell would be proud.
