What kind of dumb school teacher does this?!? Girls aren't all just stupid princesses! We can play with Legos and erector sets just like guys do!
Originally Tweeted by @gameism. He said, "Proud my 8yo girl failed this worksheet. Wish she had failed it even 'worse.'" I totally agree. It's sad that this is considered appropriate school work.
Ben347 on Reddit: "I'm genuinely confused, what was the purpose of this worksheet?" A little girl’s school assignment has generated impassioned debate online after her father, blogger Steve Bowler, sparked outrage by posting the third-grader’s worksheet, which dealt with gender stereotypes. [H]e posted her completed worksheet and tweeted: "Proud my 8yo girl failed this worksheet. Wish she had failed it even 'worse.' #GenderBias" - stupid assignment, it should all be both.
Proud my 8yo girl failed this worksheet. Wish she had failed it even "worse."
