Quinn: "[T]he goal of the public school system -- the feminists in the public school system -- is to make male behavior illegal"

Jim Quinn cited as evidence of "the chickification of schools, the feminization of society, and the war on masculinity" the story of a teacher who reportedly informed the school principal and campus police that a picture of a vampire one of her students had drawn might contain gang symbols. Quinn added that "the goal of the public school system -- the feminists in the public school system -- is to make male behavior illegal, a crime."

After reading from a blog post about a Georgia teacher who reportedly informed the school principal and campus police that a picture of a vampire one of her students had drawn might contain gang symbols, radio host Jim Quinn stated on the November 6 broadcast of Clear Channel's The War Room with Quinn & Rose that the incident is evidence of "the chickification of schools, the feminization of society, and the war on masculinity." He then stated that "the goal of the public school system -- the feminists in the public school system -- is to make male behavior illegal, a crime."

Quinn read from conservative blogger Warner Todd Huston's October 31 blog post on the Georgia incident, stating:

If this is not further evidence we need more men in our schools (and not the Birkenstock wearing, ponytailed, softhanded, bike riding kind either), then what is? Having nothing but females running our schools is turning them into thoroughly feminized institutions where everyone has gelatinized spines and all turn to a fear-wracked lump of quivery flesh at the slightest evidence of anything rambunctious, gross, tough, loud, or -- ahem -- male.

As Media Matters for America noted, Quinn previously claimed that author, activist and Ms. magazine co-founder Gloria Steinem opposed Gov. Sarah Palin because Palin "declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to the goddess of feminism, even after doctors told her that he was one of those Down syndrome 'throw-aways.' " Media Matters also noted that Quinn has stated: "If you don't agree with the feminist scolds, then you're not a real woman -- even if you are a very feminine working mom." He added, "But even if you're an actual man, never mind a childless feminist who looks like a Bulgarian weightlifter in drag, you're a real woman solely because you nod your head like a windup clapping monkey every time you read the latest editorial from Ms. magazine." Furthermore, Quinn has repeatedly referred to the National Organization for Women as the "National Organization for Whores."

Talkers Magazine lists Quinn & Rose on its "Heavy Hundred" list, which it describes as a list of the "100 most important radio talk show hosts in America." According to the show's website, it airs on 18 radio stations and XM Satellite Radio.

From the November 6 broadcast of Clear Channel's The War Room with Quinn & Rose:

QUINN: All right, now get this. This is by Warner Todd Huston. You know, maybe this should have been a "Barking Moonbat" heads-up. "Remember when you were a young school kid and you drew a vampire during the week of Halloween? Remember how the blood was always dripping down from his menacing, pearly white teeth? Remember how it was all in good faith" -- I'm sorry -- "in good Halloween fun? Well, you can just forget about that mister, at least if you are a 5th-Grader in the Savannah-Chatham school system in Georgia. In Georgia, if you draw a vampire you get called a gang member -- even when you were assigned to make the drawing -- and then you get sent to the 'psychological evaluation' department of the school as if you are some mentally disturbed monster." You know, this is getting way too Soviet for me.

[...]

QUINN: "Sadly, this situation could have been easily solved without involving police, without punishing the kid with the stigma of psychological evaluation and then being kicked out of the school. All these foolish, emasculated school administrators had to do was ask the art teacher what was going on. That teacher would have already explained that, you know, he was assigned this, and I signed off on it, it's OK, and there you have it, no police, no mental exams, no expulsion needed. If this is not further evidence we need more men in our schools (and not the Birkenstock wearing, ponytailed, softhanded, bike riding kind either), then what is? Having nothing but females running our schools is turning them into thoroughly feminized institutions where everyone has gelatinized spines and all turn to a fear-wracked lump of quivery flesh at the slightest hint of anything rambunctious, gross, tough, loud, or -- ahem -- male." Yeah, that's right. This is the chickification of schools, the feminization of society, and the war on masculinity. Look, folks, the goal of the public school system -- the feminists in the public school system -- is to make male behavior illegal, a crime. But see, when you let the government run your schools, your schools will behave like government, and that is to say that they'll behave a little bit like Michael Moore mindlessly eating anything that he comes into contact with.
