U.S. Rep. Gingrey: Kids need to 'have a class' reinforcing traditional gender roles

Posted By on Wed, Jun 19, 2013 at 2:43 PM

"You know, maybe part of the problem is we need to go back into the schools at a very early age, maybe at the grade school level, and have a class for the young girls and have a class for the young boys and say, you know, this is what's important. This is what a father does that is maybe a little different, maybe a little bit better than the talents that a mom has in a certain area. And the same thing for the young girls, that, you know, this is what a mom does, and this is what is important from the standpoint of that union which we call marriage."

U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Marietta, told his fellow Congressmen yesterday that children should have traditional gender roles reinforced in the classroom. (via The Huffington Post)
