Obliged to Embarrass Girls

One of my friends who I follow on Twitter recently tweeted about the latest blogo post of his favorite blog. I’ve known that he’s an avid reader of this collection of personal essays in which the author audaciously writes about what he fantasizes about girls and intercourse with them. That said, his writing style is so skillful and sophisticated with sort of literary value that most of the visitors, including female readers, can somehow enjoy those articles without being disgusted, or at least I was not at all offended or appalled at the guy’s fantasies described in a candid manner. (Or am I a rare species?)

Among his far-from-bashful remarks, the following citation grabbed my heart and led me to serious but amusing contemplation: All the guys are dying to see girls embarrassed. They are all obliged to embarrass girls. The focus of his blogo post has been on other topic that I’d decently refrain from mentioning here (check yourself, readers! → http://2949.seesaa.net/), but to me this remark is a shorthand for guys’ mentality of all ages.

I could never ever understand or sympathize with the male psychology or what they’re craving for at heart. Still this statement sounds relatable to me. From the very young age, boys love to kid girls around, and can be very harsh on the girls who they secretly like. Most of the visitors here have done or have been done so-called, “skirt-flicking-up play” in which boys get revved up by chasing girls and tucking up their skirts. Is this exactly the realized fantasy that men would conceive in their formative years?

In my classroom, I’ve found that male students are needy whereas female students are more self-sufficient. When I call for questions that students might have during my class, it’s, in most cases, the boy students who ask about something trivial (or “seem-to-be-unnecessary”), and end up consuming the precious class time. (Obviously teachers should be equipped with the skill to control the classroom climate with good time management.) It’s, in most cases, those boys who chat with me during break and try eliciting something reassuring from me, and end up depriving me of time for recess. (No doubt those small talks are educationally meaningful, though.) I know full well that they never intend to “embarrass” me, but I saw the same mentality as the one that the aforementioned statement implies. No offense, but I clearly see this kind of gender differences in classroom behaviors.

All that said, girls don’t necessarily hate to be embarrassed. I must confess to my dear readers that I secretly enjoyed being chased around by boys and having my skirt flicked up back then. Today, I pretty much enjoy answering time-consuming questions that no other students would ask, and attending those feeling-uneasy students sacrificing my break time. Oh, wait a minute. Is it a kind of maternal love that I’ve developed within myself as I’m aging? It’s very much likely. Yet I also think that my willingness to deal with those can-be-embarrassing situations comes from the attribute as being one of the females who’ve long been lived and tried getting along with their counterpart.
