So there's a new kid at the Montessori school, in the lower school, just younger than my kid.
"I thought he was going to be okay," the kid told me dolefully last night. "But then, at recess, he told me boys are smarter than girls."
"What did you tell him?" I asked.
"I told him they weren't. But Houston said he was right."
Houston is a punk and a thug. We do not like Houston.
"Houston!" I said. "Hmpf! Did you tell them they were both patriarchy-oppressed trolls?"
"No," she admitted. "I would have gotten in trouble for calling names."
"It's not true, is it?" she asked. "Boys aren't really smarter than girls?"
