I was just watching the news and was surprised at some video I saw. Earlier in the day, I heard that there had been some trouble at a high school in Houston between students from New Orleans who had evacuated there and the Houston area students.
When I heard the story today, I assumed it was guy students. But, no. The video showed two groups of totally insane and out of control girl students still screaming at each other long after the initial fracas had been subdued. This explains why the school was shut down at noon, the police were called and five students were arrested.
I know teachers, both men and women (some of whom are little bitty women) who will step in and break up a guy fight alone with nothing more than a big mouth and a bad temper. Those same teachers, however, wouldn't dream of breaking up a girl fight without backup of at least one other teacher and, preferably, the school security guard.
They say that, as a rule, guys don't really want to fight. They're just showing off for the girls or just showing off in general. The girls, on the other hand, fight dirty and, quite literally, are out for blood. Teachers should get combat pay.
