(I wish more people would simply ask questions, rather than try to debate me – very, very few people can participate in non-trivial debate – but then I don’t want to suppress, and instead I want to celebrate, the male desire to learn through competition. The problem with learning through competition is understanding that you’re testing yourself, not the other. I run my classroom so to speak as a great game of king of the hill, because I understand that competition and heroism is how men are willing to ‘invest’ in their education, the same way that women are willing to invest by obedience and conformity. Men need a game – a proxy for war – to have the incentive to learn. This is why mixed-gender education is literally causing brain damage to men.)
