Bathroom passes and gender

Spread the love

So bathroom passes are now on an emergency basis. We are supposed to give them out only in cases of dire need. This hugely favors the girls. There’s nothing I can do when a girl suggests her time of the month may have arrived. She gets a pass. Pregnancy allows a student to leave the classroom whenever she feels the need. The boys have no equivalent. One lucky guy in one class can claim inhaler need — another immediate permission to exit — but the rest of them are alleging discrimination. A couple have claimed to be pregnant. We’re getting a few laughs out of “Martin’s” alleged pregnancy anyway.

I just demand documentation and move on with my lesson.
