Shirts and Skins

Scars from my childhood - recollections on PE class in the 1990's.

First, my PE teacher would separate the boys from the girls, and the boys would go to a separate field to play sports. We would typically go out to the baseball or soccer field, and play kickball, soccer, and other such field-orientated games. Can't recall what and where the girls played...

Let It Decay

Second, our PE teacher would then pick two jocks (dicks), usually from the same pool of dicks over and over again, to pick teams. Of course, they would pick their buddies first. So if you weren't in with or friends with these dicks, you would be relegated to the bottom of the pick list. What a shit popularity contest this was. Would have been so much easier to number people out (i.e., "1,2,1,2... or A,B,A,B...), or just say - you half go over there and this half over here.
They Sure Don't Make Basketball Shorts Like They Used To

...this happened to me once playing basketball at a school outing - where I had just schooled these kids playing street ball. And then, once the team leaders got selected to pick, picks were made based on friends and popularity, and I was one of the last ones picked. Once again, I had just destroyed these fucks - what a sham.

Third, instead of having jersees (as they do consistently in school nowadays), one team/approximately half of the boys in the PE class would have to take their shirts off. Good ole "Shirts and Skins". Now I wasn't a stud, but I wasn't hugely overweight either - just an average dude. But there were severely overweight boys in my PE class that had to be subjected to this weight shaming day in and day out. Just awful, and unbelievable and inexcusable now.
The Triumph of Steel

Fourth, given the toxic masculinity of PE class (with just boys), a fight would break out about every damn day. These kids didn't get punished, suspended, or kicked out; TBH, it was repeat offenders most of the time. Our lame-ass PE teacher seemed to thrive on this shit and let it happen.

Fifth, PE class was a breeding ground for bullies. And the PE teacher turned a blind eye; gave no fucks. There was this one bully, we'll call him Matt Moron, who would bully me day in and out in PE class. Finally, one day, I had had it - and I chased this Moron down, jumped on his back, and drove him into the fucking ground. Needless to say, Moron didn't pick on me anymore...but unfortunately, likely placed his focus on someone else.

...did I mention that I hated my grade school! Not naming any names, but it was a private school in NW Georgia, USA. Mostly just a bunch of privileged, status-hungry tools...
