I was in middle school during the early 2000’s. I remember one day noticing the globe in my history classroom still had the Soviet Union on it. In that moment I learned how hard it was update anything at a school.
It seems like that problem hasn’t gotten any better since I left. Recently a young girl was given a homework assignment about words with the “ur” sound such as “turkey” or “purple.” One of the questions asked her for a “ur” word that meant “hospital lady” and she had the perfect response.
The tweet came from the girl’s father who mentions that both he and the mother are surgeons, which may be partially why she answered that way. Also because it’s 2017 and women can be surgeons if they please.
Everyone who has seen the tweet is praising her for fighting the patriarchy.
Other people still can’t believe that “hospital lady” is a phrase at all.
Here’s to you, kid! May you be whatever you want to be!
