In response to a confession. It wasn't "MONTHS" later contacts"..., it was 'MOTHER later contacts'. I find it rude to ask for receipt. The kid will be fine without one toy he didn't like. Donate the shit. Plus this is a friend of a friend, it's not like it's an immediate family member. People are so weird now.

In response to a confession. The only thing I thought was rude was the "months later" part. How are you supposed to get a gift receipt then? Does the kid's mom think you held onto it for months?

In response to a confession. This is mine. Thank you for your viewpoints. I too thought it was unspeakably rude, but DH thinks I’m overreacting.

You go to a friend of a friend’s kid’s birthday party. Give the kid a gift. Mother later contacts you saying kid doesn’t like the gift, can you give a gift receipt. What do you think?

In response to a confession. Also, even if you personally don't mistreat women, I can't think of any man alive who hasn't seen it happen. Do you speak up? Or do you apologize for your friend being a jerk? Do you laugh at jokes about women? Do you accept locker room talk as "just the way some guys are?" If so, you are as much a part of the problem as the perpetrators.

In response to a confession. Because they are exposed to misogyny everywhere.School dress codes are designed to keep girls from distracting boys. So boys aren't expected to control themselves, but girls are told that they are responsible for boys behavior. If a boy grabs a girl, he must like her. People use phases such as, "Throw like a girl," or "Cry like a little girl," all the time. Or people say, "Boys will be boys," as a way to excuse bad behavior rather than punishing it. There have been literal books written about how misogyny is woven into society.You can teach your children whatever you want at home, but society is teaching them something totally different.

In response to a confession. Boys need to be specifically taught about things like respect, consent, ongoing consent, and withdrawing consent because literally the whole world is designed to cater to their fulfillment at the expense of girls. Girls need to be taught that it's okay to say no, forcefully; that their opinions and feelings matter, and that just being a girl doesn't automatically disqualify them for a STEM career. This stuff starts at home. If you are truly curious, just do a Google search on violence in patriarchal families. Why do you think so many people still ask, well what was she wearing? Why did she take so long to report? They learned that misogyny at home, make no mistake. Taking the time to teach kids about the screwed up power structures in our society can change the world.

In response to a confession. Because we are raising a generation of people who all think they are special snowflakes, the rules do not apply to them, and nothing is their fault. Parents are afraid to discipline their kids because the kids will threaten to call the police and have the parents arrested.. And if you are offended by the word "snowflake", you probably are one!!

I've been hearing a lot lately with all the current events going on that parents need to teach their sons to respect women. this got me wondering, why do boys need to be taught this in the first place? my parents never had to sit me down and teach me that people needed to be respected. they showed it through their actions. i wasn't a perfect kid but i knew that i shouldn't hurt other people. why do boys need to be taught that the other half of the species is deserving of the same respect? I'm not a parent so maybe someone can enlighten me.
