For instance, in Mississippi, 74.2 percent of those paddled in schools are boys, while in Texas, 78.7 percent of those paddled are boys.321

One high school teacher suggested one possible reason for the gender disparity in paddling, noting that at her school it was common practice to “stay away from hitting the girls. I guess they’re more fragile, and a lot of them could be pregnant and we wouldn’t know it.”322 A father of two boys and a girl felt that it was more acceptable for boys to be paddled than girls. He explained, “My little girl—don’t you put your hands on her…. As far as my boys, I am super hard on them. For one, they are young black men and they are faced with different obstacles in life. I get on them every day, and I know they say, ‘Man, my dad is tough.’”323

The “five-day orgy of slaughter” included 60 truckloads of male refugees being “taken from Srebrenica to execution sites where they were bound, blindfolded, and shot with automatic rifles”, and other victims being “hunted down like dogs and slaughtered” and pushed into mass graves with industrial bulldozers.
