Nobody likes sharks they are icky to look at and of course if you bring one home its expensive to have someone who cares about them and will work hard to make it a happy, healthy, loved resident. That’s why it’s sometimes suggested that you build a shark tank out of trap doors or bamboo sticks in the backyard. The success rate is not good, but it’s a good motivation to learn how to live with them. I have seen my share of run ins with sharks, so I’ve witnessed it all.
Boys need to stay away from girls and girls need to remain away from boys. That kind of freedom and protective buffer for each other is just as important for women as it is for men. I’m sure this is true in all cultures, but certainly it is true more in western cultures than in some. Girls are not boys, and we need to ensure that girls learn this as early as possible. If we don’t teach girls to be sisters and not brothers, then we should be building them up to be one or the other.
