Boys will be boys = bad students...apparently

From News of the Weird:

Doug Anglin, 17, filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education against Milton (MA) High School, which he said discriminates against boys by giving better grades to students who "sit down, follow orders, and listen to what (teachers and administrators) say." Anglin told a Boston Globe reporter, "Men naturally rebel against this."

Ummm . . . ok . . . what are schools supposed to do to restore putative gender equity, then? Perhaps boys should get good grades for running around naked in the playground and giving the teachers the finger.

Global sex survey

A global sex survey among adults over 40 finds sexual satisfaction higher in Western countries than in Eastern countries (although the U.S. was not the highest), and that men have higher sexual satisfaction on average than women across all countries. The researchers claim that male-dominated societies have lower levels of subjective sexual satisfaction. See: patriarchy = bad sex!
