Middle school removes ‘sexist-misogynistic’ wall quote about acting like a lady after outrage-mob freaks out

Thanks to the tears and grievances of left-wing activists, a Texas middle school has been forced to remove a wall decal that contained an otherwise sensible quote about good behavior.

“The more you act like a lady, the more he’ll act like a gentleman,” the quote at Houston’s Gregory-Lincoln Middle School had read prior to its removal.

Now take a look at the actual quote itself courtesy the outrage tweet that triggered this now viral controversy:

Local resident Lisa Beckman tweeted the photo Friday afternoon and accused the quote of “perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women and relinquishing boys of all responsibility.” She added that the photo was actually snapped by a friend of hers.

Widespread left-wing outrage promptly ensued as her tweet went viral. Look:

Some leftists argued that the school should have used a less gender-specific quote, such as “respect yourself and others will respect you” or “respect earns respect.”

But the feverish cries of sexism, misogyny, discrimination and blah, blah, blah by Beckman and the left-wing media were just silly, many others on Twitter maintained.

 

The quote came from a woman, Sydney Biddle Barrows, a fact that essentially disproves the sexism and misogyny accusation.

Barrows was an infamous madame during the 1970s and 1980s. That a school chose to highlight a quote by a former female pimp seems far more troubling than the quote itself.

“I don’t think that’s probably the example, a Madame, that we want to be setting for our children and students and maybe with a little bit more research, we can make a better choices in the future,” one anonymous Gregory-Lincoln Middle School teacher said to local station KHOU.

You think!?
