This is why you should respect women: It was my 4th day teaching summer school. One of the teachers saw a 10th grade girl in his class sitting w/ her head down, arms around her head. The Germen teacher told her, "sit up, or I'll give you an 'F' & kick you out of school." 😳 She wiped her face & sat up. "You know what, come up to the board & solve this problem," he said. She put her hands over her face & shook her head. He said, "solve the problem or get an 'F' & repeat 10th grade." 😯 I walked over to the girl, gave her my coat & my key, & told her to "get up" & walked her out the classroom & to the bathroom. When I came back into class, the teacher said, "Mr. Ebrahim Aseem, did you kick her out?" I pulled him outside & put him on game, saying, "Every 28 days, girls endure the cramps & all the pain of their mentrual cycle. As men, we must pay attention. She was on her period & in pain, so much so, she was in tears. Not only that, I think she may have been bleeding. That's why she didn't stand up in front of the whole class. #EbrahimAseem You can't have your 'no bathroom policy'. You have to let these students go to the bathroom,especially the girls, so they can handle their business." No lie, this teacher told me, "Well, I'm not a woman. That period shit is not my problem" & turned away. I grabbed his shoulder & told him, "your mother went thru it every month just to birth you. It IS your problem. I don't know how you do things, but I don't treat children like animals. Treat them with respect. Remember, you were a child once." #EbrahimAseem This dumb as teacher responded by saying, "look, I'm sorry ok. I didn't know girls that young could get a period." I damn near slapped the stupid out of this dumb idiot. I replied by saying, "To be a grown man & gave no care to understand a woman's cycle is not some badge of manhood, it's pure ignorance. Every man ever born came out of a woman. Your God chose her over you to be the giver, carrier & representative of life. To disrespect a genuine woman is blasphemy, because who do you think chose her to be a life giver?" #EbrahimAseem #12YearMaleMentor No matter where you are, never be afraid to stand up for what's right
