His English Doesn’t Make The Braid

| Learning | August 9, 2013

(I teach 8th grade English at a public school, so students often ask me the meanings of words they hear. )

Male Student: “So what does, um … ’emasculate’ mean?”

Me: “Uh, well, it means… kind of … to insult a guy by calling him girly things. Who said that word to you?”

Male Student: “Oh, no one. I overheard my mom say it to my dad.”
