Houston School Removes Sign After Social Media Criticism

A sign at a Houston elementary and middle school that sparked criticism on social media has been removed.

The Houston Independent School District says the sign that read, "The more you act like a lady, the more he'll act like a gentleman," was removed Friday night. The wall was patched and repainted.

The sign was above a row of lockers in a girls' locker room at Gregory-Lincoln Education Center, a school covering kindergarten through eighth grade.

The sign drew attention on social media after a Houston resident posted a picture of it on Twitter . Critics on social media called the sign "victim-blaming" and misogynistic.

No place for truth in our society

So when do we start pulling the books out of the library which talk about ladies and gentlemen, pile them up and burn them? We can't have books which appear to be "victim blaming" or misogynistic now can we? (Sic)

I can't for the life of me see what the problems is. Isn't the message acknowledging the power that girls have to make boys better? Has it not been true since the dawn of time that a young lady who commands and demands respect from a young man transforms him from a bumbling bag of urges into an upstanding member of society? The whole point of sexual morality was primarily to keeps girls from getting pregnant and having to raise children alone, but that was only half of the story. Any young man who treated his girlfriend like a lady and didn't pressure her for sex was a young man who had self control and likely to have a steady job and be a nurturing father. Any young lady who behaved properly was likely to get such a man. If the boy is/was a cad- then he is not marrying or even long term relationship materiel. People used to know all of this...what happened to us?

It's too complicated a concept. It should just say " Act like a skank and you will be treated like one "

Lots of angry rednecks. I think the point is that acting like a gentleman shouldn't be conditional.

The way you treat others says more about who you are than them
