Today, at gym class, coach placed the boys on an "advanced level" rope climb by having a girl cling on their back. I got paired with my crush. As he climbed, we were trailing behind so I cheered for him to go faster. He loudly responded, "Why don't you go on a diet!?" FML

I am guessing he was probably joking and I wouldn't worry about it. I would be far more concerned with that 'advanced level's thing. it seems very sexist and frankly weird. It can't be good for a boy's back to carry a girl up a rope so he could be damaging them, and if they fell and landed on top of each other it could be a real problem. not to mention he is getting you two to touch a lot and it is perpetuating the stereotype of the 'strong' male and the female can't do anything and should just let the man do all the work. I think you should complain to the headteacher.

... really? It's weird enough that they're making the boy's rope-climb more challenging by using the girls as... self-adjusting deadweight (they can't afford weighted vests?), and you have to go make it weirder by bring in feminist literary criticism? Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, dude!
