Unlike Twitter, Twitchy doesn’t have a built-in filter that warns of potentially sensitive content, so we’d caution readers about scrolling down and seeing the horrible quote that was removed overnight from a Houston middle school wall after a photo went viral on Twitter.

Last warning …

The Dallas Morning News reports:

A misogynistic quote pasted above the lockers at a Houston ISD middle school was removed overnight after a photo of the quote went viral Friday on Twitter.

Lisa Beckman originally tweeted the photo Friday afternoon, saying the quote was “perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women and relinquishing boys of all responsibility.”

She said her friend took the photo at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School and sent it to her, which turned into a viral post with about 18,000 likes and 7,200 retweets as of Saturday afternoon.

This is the wall at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School in Houston ISD. It's perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women, and relinquishing boys of all responsibility. It's sexist, mysogonistic, and discriminatory!

OMFG!!!! Is this a public school? And if so, why hasn't some parent, or a group of students, raised holy living hell? This is disgusting! If my daughter went to this school & I saw this, she wouldn't be there for long.

This is bullshit! Gregory-Lincoln Middle, wtf??? (My creds: I effing taught middle school students in public school, grade 8 for 10 years, grade 6 for 20 years.) My advice: STOP enabling THE PATRIARCHY! Among like a hundred other things!

This is absurd. Exactly why the #metoo movement started. Women should not be held responsible for the way a man chooses to react to her. I’ve gotten unwanted attention wearing baggy jeans and a huge hooded sweater. A man should be able to have self control no matter what.

Whoa. Thank goodness the school acted quickly before any kids saw it.

Phew, that was close.

It's not misogynistic. https://t.co/uTGIlVHcnB

Didn’t you read the story? It’s right there in the first sentence: “A misogynistic quote pasted above the lockers ….”

I fail to see the misogyny.

I must not have been properly indoctrinated. https://t.co/3xGdXj6fUN

Literally nothing wrong with this quote.

Misogyny = hatred of women. WTF is misogynistic about that quote?

Conversely, the more you act like a trashy ho, the more he'll treat you like a trashy ho. Heaven forfend teenagers learn this.

What will they be learning?

Everyone, FOIA your public schools. Ask for any communications between school employees and “Moms Demand Action” and “Everytown For Gun Safety”. It’s time to get them OUT of the public education system pic.twitter.com/rRibXLMcQz
