To Women In Law School:

To women in law school (or anyone who wishes to answer):

What would you say to a male classmate who said to you (seemingly out of the blue): "I don't know how girls make it through law school. They are so catty, and only want to talk about soap operas."?

hmm...I don't know.... "you are a disgusting moron" comes to mind.

Ash said...

Maybe an intentional tort is the correct response -- like smacking the idiot who said that.

kristine said...

Hm. A few things come to mind.

"Haven't you been listening? That's not a soap opera those girls were talking about, it was the fact pattern from last week's torts class."

"Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't know you felt left out!"

"I guess that's the difference between boys and girls. I don't have any problems understanding how BOYS get through law school talking about nothing but football and the hot 3L who is WAY out of your league."

Those are off the top of my head. This is fun, though! I could come up with a few more with a little more time.

I would have been sorely tempted to kick him. (Assault & battery... maybe with false imprisonment thrown in for fun too.)

Unreal that someone actually said that. Out loud. What an asshead.

Shelley said...

"Sorry about your penis...." (He must be compensating for something.)

"Oh, well, we don't really want to be lawyers. We're just here to snag ass-hole husbands like you who will make lots of money working for BIGLAW."

But seriously, WTF?

But yeah...what Shelley said.

jake said...

are you kidding me? that's out of control? Who was it? somebody needs to explain a few things to this jackass.

CM said...

I vote for Kristine's.

I would probably say, "You must be talking to the wrong women," and then make a mental note to avoid this guy.

What really bothers me is when women say stuff like this.

I wouldn't have said anything but I would have punched him. That's just me, though.

"I don't know how men survive law school. Must be hard without a brain."
