"Parents have always worried when their children become English majors. What is an English major good for? In a way, the best answer has always been, wait and see — an answer that satisfies no one. And yet it is a real answer, one that reflects the versatility of thought and language that comes from studying literature. Former English majors turn up almost anywhere, in almost any career, and they nearly always bring with them a rich sense of the possibilities of language, literary and otherwise."
In the drift away from the humanities, we risk losing something essential in ourselves.

+Ryan McIntire Many, if most academic disciplines, are devoted to the practical areas of life; the humanities, and literature, are not; that's the way it has been, until recently when pedagogues tampered with an excellent model that dates to the Renaissance.

Well hello Urban (Straits Times' Friday pullout), if you want to use French phrases, then at least use them correctly. I doubt anyone else in the world knows what "je nais se quoi" is except your paper. Je ne sais pas ce que vous écrivez...

I think it's great that there are initiatives to minimize social expectations (or impositions) that divide our society into gender camps, especially in the education system where the minds of the young are shaped. It might lead to a more embracing society, especially when sexuality, more than just gender delineations, come into the picture. What do you guys think?
The Swedish pre-school that avoids using the pronouns 'him' and 'her' as part of its drive to create a more gender neutral environment.

BUT a very interesting thing is that, is this taking things too far? Are they looking at gender elimination, rather than gender equality
