So, I have a fair amount of older friends who have kids and lives and are, like, real people, which is still weird to think about.
Anywhoodle, a recent post laments the troubles that a daughter has to go through when boys are going through that weird “first crush” stage. You know, the one where boys will be crazy cruel because obviously they like the girl, so tormenting seems like a good option. We’ve all seen, maybe even still do it.
Putting aside the problem I have with some of the responses of “boys are a mystery” (backed up by some men who chime in on the post), it seems amazing to me that these smart funny individuals don’t see the problem of normalizing this kind of behavior. What’s worse, they normalize by chalking it up to “some great gender mystery that shan’t never be solved”. Many of the responses glide over the boy’s torment straight into, “aww, in 10 years they are going to have the biggest crushes on her!”
This. Is. Absurd. And I’d really like to comment on the post and tell them that, but I’m pretty sure I’d just get a lot of weird online looks. But seriously? When a little girl (or any small human) is tormented, the best we can do is just shrug our shoulders and say, “Welp, I guess we’ll never understand what happened there.” It seems pretty clear, to me.
