This is one reason I couldn't teach anymore. Our school policy was that "fighting"was never allowed, not even in self defense. When I had playground duty I did not enforce this nonsense. I stopped fights but I didn't turn in the kids who were defending themselves from bullies. Teachers can't be everywhere. I told some parents at parent teacher conferences that their kids needed to stop being such p****ies and stand up for themselves. If they got suspended as a result , so what? Big deal.
My brother remarried late in life and had a son when he was already in his fifties. As a former Marine and a retired cop, he did not buy the flower drum song. He taught his son to stand up for himself. When his boy did, the school suspended him. My brother went to see the school principal, told him his boy had done exactly what he was supposed to do, and that he and his son were going fishing on the boat during the weeks suspension. He laughed in the pompous prigs face.
But the avowed goal of many in the education hierarchy is the emasculation of males. By and large, this business in the video is how they do it.
