Boys with sticks

September 08th, 2015 by Vader

Yes, well. When your daughter is the one who’s lying barely conscious on the front yard of some frat house, my sons will be the ones who will know enough to charge in, swinging sticks to chase the brutes away. They’ll know because we let them have sticks, we let them find out what sticks can do, and we told them what sticks are for.

Violence doesn’t take over when boys are allowed to have sticks. Violence takes over when no one tells boys what sticks are for.

Thus Simcha Fisher

From the original essay: “…there’s such a thing as balance and middle ground.” What a refreshing thought in today’s politically correct world with its new taboos.
