HOUSTON — An indication at a Houston elementary and center faculty that sparked criticism on social media has been eliminated.
The Houston Impartial Faculty District says the signal that learn, “The extra you act like a woman, the extra he’ll act like a gentleman,” was eliminated Friday evening. The wall was patched and repainted.
The signal was above a row of lockers in a women’ locker room at Gregory-Lincoln Schooling Middle, a college protecting kindergarten by eighth grade.
The signal drew consideration on social media after a Houston resident posted an image of it on Twitter . Critics on social media referred to as the signal “victim-blaming” and misogynistic.
Courses haven’t begun for the semester. In line with the district’s web site , the primary day of faculty is Aug. 27.
The quote, “The extra you act like a woman, the extra he’ll act like a gentleman,” has been attributed to Sydney Biddle Barrows, a businesswoman-turned-escort company proprietor. https://t.co/pRPdjzN7EH
