They have too much funding

I’ve been a little lax at keeping up with the unnecessaries, lately:  I just got around to reading this post on Guys Lit Wire this morning.  Once I recovered from the image of Sarah Palin, I was trying to think about how I felt about the idea of “blaming” someone for a child not reading.

Um, I cannot wrap my mind around blaming the mothers for reading to their children.

I cannot wrap my mind around blaming the fathers for teaching their sons the “manly arts”.

Were women not banned from advanced education for thousands of years?  Were men not responsible for writing and printing books?  Were the universities only opened to women about 150 years ago?

Wouldn’t one think there were perhaps a few more factors involved in defining the causes of a dislike of reading?
