Thank you, feminism! We truly all are equals, now:
One surprising trend, according to Dr. Mann, is that girls have caught up to boys when it comes to binge drinking, cannabis use and other problem behaviours. In many instances, it appears that while male substance use has remained relatively stable or even declined, the number of females engaging in those activities has risen significantly. For instance, in 1999, 20.3 per cent of boys and 15.7 per cent of girls reported hazardous or harmful drinking behaviour. By 2011, those numbers were 18.1 for boys and 17.6 for girls.
Of course, this falls into the category of things feminists will never “take credit” for, but I’ve read enough articles now about distraught feminist mothers, wondering how on earth their daughters could misconstrue their message of female empowerment by sleeping around, wearing atrociously skanky clothes, and generally avoiding engineering and math departments like the plague. They don’t see themselves as granting the “freedom” of licentiousness to their girls, at all. Doesn’t mean they didn’t do precisely that, though.by
