Is English and education in general overly feminised?

Discussion in 'English' started by bgy1mm, Jan 10, 2011.

  1. The best literature usually appeals to both sexes. Sex-specific children's writing is common, but it's almost always trash. Which doesn't mean not worth reading, but it's not worth studying, except maybe for really low ability groups where literacy is the main issue.
    There are a few exceptions. Starship Troopers is obviously a boy's book, as is Lord of the Flies. But they're few and far between.
